Everything about Vesper, every choice about every design and implementation detail of every feature, liberates only through constraint. Because it allows for just a very small set of very deliberate actions, Vesper frees you from the cognitive overhead of managing the management app, and forces you to simply fulfill its purpose — to capture, tag, and archive your thoughts.
Vesper's name draws allusions to the most classic of Bond women, and the drink she inspired. So does the company name behind Vesper - Q Branch. According to the Brent, Dave, and John, they're making a precision tool for you the same way MI6's Q made them for Bond. (And yes, in this case, if they're Q, that makes you Bond.)
Vesper recently released an update to make sync less of a daunting task and something you don't really have to think about. Vesper Sync lets you back up and sync all your notes with a single login. For now it's simply a backup service, until Vesper for Mac makes an appearance, hopefully followed by an iPad version. For now, here's what you get with Vesper for iPhone: You can create new notes, add text or images to them, tag them, search for them, share them via Mail or Messages, or copy them to the clipboard, archive them or delete them, visit URLs contained within them using a Spartan, built-in browser, and that's about it. No themes. No font selection.
Just Vesper, your ideas, and as little as possible to get in the way of their being captured.
