Handy note app - ultimate note taking app at Google Play!
I have just discovered a beautiful note taking app that possibly can replace a number of the ones available on the market.
The app is called Handy note and it is available at GooglePlay under a company name AppBody. It gives you compete control over your notes amongst numerous other functions. The only downside is that it's not free so you'll have to take my word for it (extremely cheap to buy though). With a bit more development, it probably can replace S-notes. I'll list the pros and cons to help highlight key features and will link to the app for those interested.
Pros - app currently can do
.Text entry via chosen keyboard
.Freehand text entry with smoothing applied (makes your handwriting look much nicer)
.Two writing panels, when you enter handwriting and reach the end of the first panel, you start writing in the second panel while the first one transfers writing to screen, this allows continuous writing without having to wait for words to transfer.
.Everything you do can be repositioned anywhere on the screen as easily as selecting the desired area and sliding it to where you want it positioned i.e. you want to move text, handwriting or drawings to a different section just select correct tool and area you want to reposition and drag your S-pen to the desired position.
.Number of text editing options such as bullets, numbering, font size choice etc.
.You can insert pictures and shapes, loads to choose from within the app such as arrows, circle, box, smilies etc
. You can insert date, time etc and change the way it looks too,you can hyperlink to URL, another notebook and apps within the App.
There are tons more features, too much to list.
Cons - not available (yet, possibly the developer may include in future updates)
. Could not see an option to import pdf's
.Could not see an option to increase page size of needed
.Notes are saved automatically, does not have a safe button
.Portrait mode only at present ( been told by developer that landscape mode is coming in end of year)
I have only listed some features of the app above as I have only been using for about 30 minutes, there are still lots to discover and I think I will request from the developer some of the cons I have listed above to be addressed. It Will truly make this app perfect if they can implement them.
As it stands though, the app is still fantastic and runs super smooth on or Notes and is really worth a try for those who take a lot of notes.
