The App Store is nearly flooded with Notes apps today. There are the popular apps like Simplenote and Evernote with their own syncing solutions and there are others like Elements which let you use Dropbox to store your notes. Just Type is a new Notes app for iOS that brings a beautiful UI, simplicity, extensive features and iCloud sync in a tiny package that’s Free on the App Store.
Just Type has been designed and developed by Shubham Kedia, who has been quite well-known in the iOS Jailbreak scene designing Winterboard themes for the last few years. The app is very well designed packs a bunch of beautiful pixels. You’ll notice some nicely crafter animations and transitions throughout the app, which makes using the app a great experience. Adding new notes is quick and easy and you almost get a feeling that the app UI has been heavily inspired by the Tapbots’ design style.
While bearing a beautiful and elegant UI, Just Type delivers on the functional front as well. You can have notes with different colors, though I personally found the light grey color to be the best of the lot. The app ships with 16 different fonts to choose from and also lets you adjust the font size. Notes can be emailed as text or an attachment, Messaged, Printed or you can just copy the text. The list of your notes is quickly accessible on your right, just like in Sparrow or the Facebook app. Swiping a note left to right marks it as Starred, while the other way deletes it. Your notes can be sorted based on color or you can just viewed the Starred notes together. With iCloud, your notes are synced across your devices too.
In OS X Mountain Lion, Apple’s own Notes.app takes a giant leap with a standalone and comparatively feature-rich on the Mac, but their iOS app still remains fairly basic. Just Type gives you a great option to replace your current Notes app, specially when it’s Free on the App Store. The only quibble I have with it is its icon, it could be way better.
