Description

Allegory is a powerful notes app with a beautiful iOS-centric UI. The minimal and focused writing experience, combined with an impressive set of powerful features, makes this the ideal choice for everyone. Allegory removes the complexity of most markdown editors, presenting a minimal UI that’s welcoming for casual writers and note-takers as well as more attuned authors, making it a great app for you to pick up regardless of your background and skill level.



WHY YOU'LL LOVE ALLEGORY:

Allegory immediately launches to the clean and simple note editor screen, boosting your productivity and reducing friction between wanting to write down what you’ve just thought of, and actually getting it written down. Support for valid markdown as well as custom markdown makes it easier to create your best work.

Allegory also includes a brilliant hand-crafted drawing area which lets you select from a variety of colors, long-holding on any of the tools brings them into focus with sliders to adjust their opacity and stroke size with gorgeous animations that strike awe.

You can bookmark and set due dates on any note from anywhere in the app regardless of where you are, which makes performing essential actions entirely seamless, further reducing friction for users. Seamless iCloud sync adds upon the notion of keeping your notes exactly where they need to be. Notes can be searched for within the app in ways that make sense to you, by words and dates, or by using language that comes naturally such as ‘today’, ‘yesterday’, and ‘last week’. A summary of your current note also provides further context on your writing by displaying character/word/line/paragraph counts, sentiment analysis to portray how positive or negative your writing is, quick links to open the specific note, and more.

Inspiration can strike anywhere, and that is why Allegory supports custom action extensions that allow creating notes and putting down ideas from other apps. You can also use Siri to do the same. Scan documents and text to convert it to notes, or add images within notes to provide more context. When you want to share your work with the world, use one of the many export options to create files that work best for you, from TXT and MD, to HTML and PDF. Or simply export as an image or plain text. It's built in ways that make sense to your workflow.

Tweak and adjust the app to make it look and behave the way that you want. From app icons and tints, to markdown settings and haptics, there's a settings option to make the app your own. URL schemes and Siri shortcuts allow you to perform useful actions in Allegory from anywhere. Allegory is available on your iPhone, your iPad, and your Apple Watch, and supports seamless iCloud sync to share notes without lifting a finger.

All the power of iOS is in your hands with Allegory. It is fully integrated with the latest technologies such as Dark Mode, a standalone Apple Watch app, Siri, Today Widget, Quick Actions, Action Extension, Context Menus, iCloud sync, Notifications, document scanning, biometric locks, custom haptics, Pencil support, keyboard shortcuts, URL schemes, custom app icons, iMessage stickers, fully accessible, and more.

Beautiful Disaster

This app is beautifully designed but lacks basic usability and has major flaws. When adding multiple notes in the latest version, old notes get replaced with the new text, creating duplicates and/or completely erasing old notes. I would hope my notes would be retained and not deleted when creating a new one.

Secondly, formatting notes as to-do lists needs a major overhaul. It is buried in the “hold” menu three lines in. When selecting multiple lines it creates one large “to-do” line. When selecting each individual line it has unpredictable, nonsensical behavior.

I have yet to dive deeper into any other issues as I can no longer use this app in its current state.

🤨 3 gigabytes?

Then app has a lot of potential but there’s something wrong.

I loaded the app and started to try out different features. When I added a photo and then a drawing to a new note, things got really REALLY slow. I looked in Settings to see how much space was being used up by Allegory and it said over 3 GIGABYTES of data. This for a fresh install where I added literally one or two new notes to test the app. Something is not right ...hopefully it gets fixed so I can try it out. Again, I think there’s potential here for a great app.

Hey there, thank you for the great feedback. The latest versions have now resolved this issue, and if you're still facing it, a fresh reinstall of the app will resolve it. Hope this helps!

Horribly Slow

Way too slow when I add a picture and write a note below it. It doesn’t finish writing what I type until a minute later and I’m on an iPhone 11. The speed is unacceptable for a subscription based app like this.
