Featuring audio, text, picture and even barcode notes, Note Everything seems to be a program that could do just about anything. Over a year ago we tested the app with lukewarm results. Now it’s time for an update on this useful tool. Got it all down? Then off to the test we go!
Features & Use
Just about anybody can do simple text notes. Note Everything has more up its sleeve and is becoming an all-arounder for all your note taking needs. Its Premium Version also includes a to-do feature.
Need to make a quick sketch? Or record an audio note-to-self? With Note Everything it’s a piece of cake.
You can create different kinds of notes:
- Note from barcode
- Note from Google docs (free plug-in required)
A picture can say a thousand words, right? Then just draw a sketch of something that you need to remember. You can be creative in the process by adjusting the color, stroke width and other options. With voice notes there aren’t any limitations except for the amount storage space on your SD card. Need your note as a QR-code? No problem! Note Everything can change your note into a code that can be scanned by other smartphones with barcode scanners. Pretty impressive, huh?
Another feature that requires an additional plug-in is the synch with GDocs. After installing this plug-in, you can save your notes to Google Docs and edit them on your computer.
How do you keep track of all these different notes? Luckily, Note Everything provides a good folder system that keeps your files neat and organized. Simply create folders to move your notes to – it’s just that easy. Subfolders can also be created.
Sharing your notes as QR-code is a pretty useful feature. If your partner doesn’t have a smartphone with a bardcode scanner, you can send your notes via Bluetooth, e-mail, Flickr and many other sharing services, including GoogleDocs.
Need quick access to your notes? Just place a shortcut to your note on the homescreen and access it instantly.
