It's how notes on iOS should work. A unique swipe-gesture manages task lists and adds formatting in a snap. One-tap reminders ensure that you revisit a note later. Folders & favorites keep you organized, while Dropbox syncs notes between devices.

Once you see how productive your everyday notes can be, you'll wonder how you lived without UpWord!

99% Perfect Notes App

Have used upword notes for a few years now (bought IAP once, totally worth it). I recently tried a bunch of other apps, none of which hold a candle (in my eyes) with upword. Not all of them are bad, but this one has all the right features for ME and works as intended. The only thing it’s missing is the ability to save a note offline (local to the device). I love in a semi-dead cell area, so when I’m without coverage I can’t access my notes. Unfortunately, most apps don’t offer this function. DropBox does, so the work around is to find the note in DB and save it offline from there. I can then view the note from DB when offline, but can’t edit it.

I wish upword would add a way of saving notes offline and allowing us to edit those notes while offline. Then have them upload and sync to the server when connection resumes.

The only 5 star rating I've ever given

I am extremely detail oriented and need to have control over everything to feel organized. From the font, to the size, to bolding/italicizing and bullet or number lists, color coding and folders, headings and so on... And I all but gave up finding an app that gave me all of that. No lie I have looked for years. This was the LAST one I was willing to try and in no exaggeration at all, it has changed my life. I've never written a review for an app because I've never cared so much or been so positive impacted by an app. This is my lifeline: in less than one week of having it I have added more 60 notes in 7 different categories (not to mention sub categories within) and just being able to choose colors, or font, or all of the above from before, it makes this app experience MINE. Linking to DropBox is a lifesaver too because my lists and notes are constantly uploading and saving remotely, so I don't have to worry about any freak accident and losing hours of organizational efforts.

Thank you to the creators of the app, this is the only app I've ever purchased (I'm cheap and use free ones haha) and because of this app I can cut down my paper usage or my scattered notebooks because it's finally all in one place and with me all of the time through this app on my phone.

Helpful organizing tool

I use this app everyday and it is great. I use it to make shopping lists at the different stores I shop at as well as for making packing lists for trips and “to do” lists. It is great to be able to mark through an item and then unmark it. One thing I have found “on accident” that I don’t like is that if you scroll to the top of your list too quickly it will “clean up” your list by deleting everything you marked off. I don’t like this feature because when I make a packing list for example, I mark off the things that I have packed and then usually, when I am getting ready to come home from my trip I go back into my list and make sure I pack everything back up to come home. If I have accidentally scrolled to the top of my list too fast it will delete all of the items that I have marked through and that leaves me at risk for forgetting something.
