our standard iOS apps can do the job most of the
time, but you have options that are much better and
provide more functionality. In this article, I’ll share
some of my favorite alternative apps and how they
can benefit you. I’ve included more than one option
for some of the stock apps and will give you the low-
down on each to help you decide what to try for yourself!
Notes is one of those
rare apps that works
well, and yet it could
still use a little something. There are many
alternatives for you to
try, but I’ll be narrowing
to two stalwarts: Evernote and Simplenote,
both of which take two
very different approaches to the Notes app.
Evernote has been
around for more than
15 years and comes
with great features that
make it a heavyweight
Notes app replacement.
It can be a bit cumbersome to use and many features require
you pay a monthly subscription to access, but its feature-rich
environment and smooth polish make it a solid choice.
Simplenote, on the other hand, has been around for less
than a decade and is intentionally less feature rich. Its minimalist approach is designed to make note-taking simple. It
provides a few tools like tagging and note sharing, so you
have everything you need and nothing else. I recommend
Simplenote if you want a clean approach to taking notes and
storing quick bits of information.
