Noted updated v3.0 - brings new features, automatic backups, and more!

By Alicia Erlich on 28 Oct 2013 08:44 am EDT

One of my favorite note taking applications received another update this week and now stands at version 3.0. It may be a simple app hearkening back to the memo pad days of legacy devices, but for a sometimes absentminded individual such as myself, it stores all of my notes in one convenient database. 

This time around the change log is rather small, but you can view all of the modifications Carterbits incorporated below. What I do love is the quality service he provides and how dedicated he is to making it better with each new iteration. No matter what bug or issue one is experiencing, he is always there in forums to lend a hand or to consider suggestions.


  • New Settings feature to show/hide categories


  • Auto-hide bottom Action Bar on scroll, feature can be turned on/off in Settings
  • Search tab now automatically sets cursor to the search field on first visit
  • Ability to Share new note data, before the note has even been saved
  • New Settings feature to Allow/Disallow setting a secure note as the Active Frame cover data
  • Active Frame updates more reliable


  • Automatic Backups to SD card, Dropbox, wherever!


  • Linked Notes - shortcuts to plain text files so you can use Noted as a plain text editor.
  • Import and export notes from/to plain text files

If you haven't had a chance to try it, be sure to check out my original review. However, please note the price has changed since then and now stands at $1.99.

Good to see this app being supported so well. I think I'm gonna get my dad swapped over to this so he will stop bitching about no memo pad. Next we will tackle the password keeper issue.

Auto corrected by BB10

Password keeper issue? BlackBerry has password keeper available on BlackBerry World for bb10. If that's not issue... never mind :)

Way too expensive. Do I look like a billionaire? I own a BlackBerry that means I'm completely poor since every last penny I own including my unborn child soul has been sold to get this BlackBerry. I have no money. This app should be completely free and included with BlackBerry. There's no way I can afford $1.99. Let alone the. 99 cents I already paid when it was on sale :). Lol. Bought it to support developer, haven't used it yet so don't know if it's good or bad. A video tutorial for those that are aged seniors such as my father would be great, yes I ask a lot don't I? :). Keep up the good work. Carterbits

Only a fool thinks they know me.
