Access Note - Review
I downloaded the Access Note Application to my iPhone 6 and I absolutely love it. It turned my phone into a real note taker device!
However, I wish that instead of saving everything to Dropbox, you should have a choice as to where the files are saved. I realize that the notetaker saves files into its own structure, but there are alternative external drives that you can use with your iPhone that could be used to save your notes to. That way, when you're not connected to the Internet, you can still save all your notes to an external wireless flash drive to access them at a later time with Access Note. That way, you're not cluttering up your iPhone's storage with notes. They can all be stored on wireless media storage such as external flash drives and such.
All in All, Access Note is excellent. They really did a great job in developing the program because it doesn't have all those extras such as timers, clocks, calendars and all of the other junk that you may get with a physical notetaker device.
This program gives a whole new meaning to notetaker! It sure beats having to pay somewhere in the neighborhood of between $995 all the way up to at least $6000 for a notetaker that is less powerful than a laptop machine is. For only $19, this is a winner in my book! Sure that's quite expensive for a tiny little ap, but consider the alternative?
I think that you will run and grab Access Note if you already haven't when you see the true cost of those physical notetakers out there. It is definitely pure sticker shock!
I have also noticed that Access note is extremely fast on the iPhone 6. Typing on it is a breeze and it is also quick in response with my Apple bluetooth keyboard. A matter of fact, it is much faster than my Voicenote Empower notetaker which I bought a few years ago for $1200. Ouch!
So I urge anybody who wants a notetaker and who has an iPhone to forget about those other notetakers and pony up the $19 to get Access Note! Besides that, your iPhone already does much of the same things that one of those expensive notetaker devices do but for far less money.
Not sure why you had to pay to get this app as it is free and has been for a while as it is discontinued. A quick look at the app description shows that it was last updated in November 2013. Its a great app but I would never use an app that is discontinued as I value a well supported and updated apps.
I really like Access Notes and use it all the time. Now that it is no longer supported is therenother app that serves a similar function?
I've always used my iPhone with a Bluetooth keyboard to take notes and write documents from within the Notes app that comes with the Apple software. Once you learn the VoiceOver keyboard shortcuts for navigating and editing this seems to work pretty well.
I did download Access Note a while back and tried it also. Nice that it integrates with DropBox, but I couldn't figure out why I would use this app rather than what comes with the iOS.
could someone compare the two apps? Maybe if not using VoiceOver the Access Note app has more built in keyboard shortcuts for editing and navigating? don't know.
