SoundNote - iPad App for Easy Notes


I happened upon this particular app (SoundNote) the first week of getting my iPad1.

I didn’t have a use for it until recently, when it became one of the most important apps I have!

Enjoy the video and let me know what you think.

How I turned my iPhone/iPod 4 in to a texting demon with a slideout keyboard


Have you ever envied people who sit in the coffee shop with their thumbs blazing as they text away on their mobile devices? As an iPhone/iPad person, you have been out of luck if you want this form factor--until now.

Let me introduce you to the nifty, new NUU Mini keyboard. It is really meant for the iPhone, but I slipped my iPod touch 4 into it, and it works just fine. It has a little slop room, but you can shim it up if it really bothers you.

iTablet Thumb Keyboard


If you ever wanted an external keyboard for your phone or tablet, the iTablet thumb keyboard is a great option. This classy thumboard will connect with any Bluetooth HID device including:

  • iPad
  • iPhone
  • PS3
  • Xbox 360
  • Windows 7 & XP
  • Android
  • Linux
  • Interactive TV (IPTV)

The iTablet is Bluetooth 2.0 and HID 1.0 profile compliant.

It features backlit keys with an on/off switch to save battery. It charges with an included mini USB cable. The Function, Alt, Ctrl, Shift work exactly like those on a regular keyboard. There are also left and right mouse button keys.

Notability,  PenUltimate and Notes Plus Review

Can we find the perfect note taking app for each individual?  Is this to broad of an audience to meet the needs for all?  I think it will come down to a few apps being great for note taking.  I don’t think one company will monopolize this niche.  Why?  People are too different.  I may like certain features that my friend doesn’t.  With that said lets discuss some applications available.
