Meernotes Brings the Retro to Notetaking

Meernotes Brings the Retro to Notetaking

A few days ago, we wrote about Notefile — an app that took a very simple and elegant approach to notes. Today, an email from the developer of Meernotes dropped into our inboxes and I instantly knew it was going to end up on Beautiful Pixels.

Unlike most other notes’ apps on the App Store, Meernotes takes a very retro approach to notes. The app features some exceptionally well designed pixels all over. It features a very skeuomorphic UI, but does this incredibly well. It almost seems like the designer sat with a magnifying glass to make sure every single pixel was just perfectly in place. Meernotes features different style of notebooks to choose from, though it doesn’t let you add your own image to it. You can name your notebooks and choose from 3 different font options — Handwritten, Type-set or Typed & Worn.

While marvelous in form, Meernotes doesn’t lack in function either. You can navigate through the app using simple gestures or tapping on beautiful buttons or action areas. You can add unlimited pages to your notebooks if you want and can even “rip out” any pages you don’t want. It even features a nifty bookmark. There are virtual tabs that you can insert into the notebooks to jump directly to that page or just use the Index. It even supports Landscape mode. Meetnotes also supports Dropbox integration, TXT Exports and the option to email your notes.

If you’re someone who like simple, no-bullshit note-taking apps, Meernotes is definitely not for you. But if you want to add that retro or analog feeling, wrapped in a incredibly gorgeous UI to the experience, Meernotes costs just $2.99 on the App Store.
