Let’s face it, the default notes app that comes with iOS is a little, shall we say, lacking. If you’re tired of its short comings then you should give this simple yet powerful app a go. It was designed with simplicity in mind, so using it just feels natural. It is also quite capable, with cloud syncing options available for both iCloud and Dropbox. Over the past couple of years I’ve tried about a dozen or so note apps on the iPhone that include Dropbox sync capability (so that I can access my notes on my Mac and iPad seamlessly), the vast majority of them simply don’t work, but iA Writer works every time. I have yet to have a data loss, which is vital when you’re jotting down things you need to remember. The iOS version is both an iPhone and iPad app, so that’s swell. The Mac, Windows, iphone, iphad, and Android versions available here.

This is the only text app I would recommend to replace Notes on your iPhone. Don’t sell yourself short with cheap and ugly alternatives.

On a personal note, I do think BioLite missed an obvious marketing opportunity to call this product the “First Law of Thermodynamics.”
