Note & Share for iPhone/iPad review [give away!]
Note & Share is a note taking app with support for iPhone and iPad. It is a universal binary so you won't have to purchase them separately. Note & Share also offers integration with several different services. Dropbox, Twitter, Evernote, Google Docs, and Mail are a few popular ones that Note & Share easily integrates with.
Note & Share also supports markdown as well. I recently wrote a review on Markdown Mail, so I was eager to see how Note & Share stacked up against it. I'd say it fairs pretty well. Setting up your services is easy enough and sharing to them is even easier.
When you launch the app, you'll be presented with a text entry box. You can simply start typing your content and then choose how you want to share it. Or you can optionally just save it as a note locally to your phone with a simple tap. You can also clear the entire text entry field with one tap, which is a nice feature.
Note & Share also supports image upload as well. You can choose your media and it will shorten the URL and insert it into your note.
When it comes to exporting to Evernote or any service that supports hashtags, it will recognize those as tags and import accordingly. Your first line of text will also be used as the note title, similar to the way Markdown Mail will title notes.
The interface is not as simple as Markdown Mail's but its still extremely easy to use. I expected the interface to be a bit advanced considering it supports many more features than Markdown Mail does.
If you're looking for a note taking app that allows synchronization and upload with several services, Note & Share is probably the way to go. If you're just looking for an app that allows markdown conversion and offers a way to send HTML rich e-mail, you may want to give Markdown Mail a look. Both apps are extremely good at what they do and neither is a bad choice. As of right now, Markdown Mail is $1 more than Note & Share. I'd say for the extra features, spring for Note & Share.
