** As FEATURED by Apple in “New Apps We Love” **
This is a different kind of notes app. Simpler. Smarter. Better.
You can type #hashtags into your notes to organize them.
#hashtags link all the tagged notes together—tap on any to see them all.
We'll find any phone numbers, email addresses, or links in your notes, too, and you can tap on those to call, email, or go to the web.
A dash and then a space makes a list—you can tap the dash later to cross things off.
Attach #photos of things you’d like to remember—receipts, screenshots of directions, shoes in a shoe store. Whatever makes sense for you. Tap little photos to make ‘em bigger. Swipe down on big photos to make ‘em smaller.
We hope this app helps you capture the thoughts that are important to you—thank you so much for giving it a try.
- we fixed a bug that prevented some users from importing notes on new devices. Thanks Jamie!
Ratings and Reviews
Best app for thoughts and ideas!
First review ever for an app! But it’s because I enjoy Better Notes so much that I wanted to share my experience on it. It’s actually perfect for me! I love the simplicity of the design as well as how incredibly easy it is to use. It feels very natural. I get random thoughts and ideas in my head all the time and at random times of the day as well and Better Notes makes it very easy for me to put down those thoughts and ideas. I’ve tried other note-taking apps and it just doesn’t compare to Better Notes because they all feel too complicated with too many features imo. I love that when I put down my thoughts and/or ideas that everything gets separated and my thoughts and ideas aren’t all lumped into one page like all the other note apps I’ve tried. My thoughts/ideas don’t take up a whole page so it’s really nice that Better Notes formats their individual pages the size of however long my thought or idea is and without me seeing a bunch of extra space if that makes any sense lol. It’s almost like writing on a sticky note rather than a standard 8x11 paper. And lastly I LOVE that I can organize my thoughts and ideas with hashtags. I know, I know. There’s other note apps that have that feature too but Better Notes is just better to me. TO THE DEVELOPERS OF BETTER NOTES IF YOU’RE READING THIS: I wouldn’t change a single thing! There are two things I would add though: a passcode and a version to install on the Mac OS.
Request from a loyal supporter
I absolutely love this app. I’ve been using it for some time to quickly write down my ideas or create to do list on the go. I love the ability to create hashtags so I can organize my notes by categories.
Although I love this app I believe it can be better. Is it possible to have our hashtags organized in albums instead of list? I believe this would make it easier to navigate through the app. Currently it just feels like a endless list with a never ending bottom. So it can be overwhelming to sort out. I also think having a feature to change the background color of our notes would be amazing and another great way to organize related notes. For example being able to make all my #ToDo notes green. Then be able to view by color.
Again thank you for creating such an amazing app. It’s honestly the best mobile notes app in my opinion and I hope my suggestions are able to help improve it.
without Apple Pencil support why bother?
When it comes to taking notes, the whole thing is about being quick and easy (convenient). Otherwise, why not use one of the many word processing or text editing apps? There are plenty that allow hashtags, searching and more. Problem is, they’re not fast and convenient.
Then there’s the brilliance of Apple Pencil and it’s handwriting features. There are apps like GoodNotes, Notability, Note Shelf and more that utilize Apple Pencil and hand writing but again, these are major apps that must be launched and navigated. Good for serious writing but not for jotting quick notes.
I hoped this would be the missing link. It’s not. Hashtags and searching are a nice addition but without Apple Pencil integration, it’s not convenient to me. If you don’t care about that, you will probably like this app. The description is accurate.
