Noted updated once again - now stands at v2.2

By Alicia Erlich on 5 Aug 2013 02:38 am EDT

Just as I was getting used to version 2.0 of Noted, the developer went ahead and made two significant updates to the popular utility application. If you browse through the combined changed log you'll find quite a few new features although the ones that stand out for me is Active Frame support, Auto Save, and the ability to share text and urls directly into the application. 

Full change log

  • Auto Save: automatically saves open notes on a user-defined interval
  • Share Menu integration: clip text and URLs directly into Noted
  • Universal Search integration: search notes from the OS search function
  • Active Frame support, set a note as Active Frame content
  • Auto-refresh destination category after moving a note to another category
  • Settings: Enable/disable Auto Save, Set Auto Save interval, Hide note descriptions, Enable/disable Active Frame support, Use textured background in Active Frame
  • Help menu
  • Share app
  • Review app

An interesting capability of Noted is how it is compatible with the integrated BlackBerry Voice Control application. When you are creating a new note, simply press and hold on the period key (which has a microphone in the corner), speak what you would like to enter into the field and tap the done button when you have finished recording. 

One more feature that should help in your daily note taking activities is the ability to insert custom fields or the date and time in your notes. Simply tap on the overflow menu when creating a new entry, tap insert, and then either choose the date and time or input your own text in the three custom fields. This is perfect for those who have repetitive tasks.

If you are searching for a fluid, native, and easy to use place to store and keep track of all your tasks, there is no reason you shouldn't give it a try. It supports all BlackBerry 10 handsets and can be purchased for $0.99. I also love how the developer is working hard to implement these updates and take user suggestions to improve the application.

Noted updated once again - now stands at v2.2


Is that really a bad thing though? I'd much rather have an active developer than what most of the big name apps do.. push out the app and ignore it for months, then push an update that has nothing added to the change log.

(Asking this because I am a developer and I update quite frequently if I add some big features, just wanna know your opinion and/or if you do not like this to happen. Any insight is appreciated)

l find it so difficult...guess l need more understanding.

There are way too many "notes" app. Crackberry really needs to sit down and start doing comparisons amongst each and every solid release to date. Would be really appreciated.

True, but I honestly find this app to be the best. It is very similar to the memopad app on BBOS. I love how it is a native app, has a (manual) backup feature, auto-saves, it's integrated with the "share" icon, and is simple. The only thing missing is me pressing "D" as a shortcut on my keyboard (hoping BlackBerry adds this feature in 10.2).

The developer is active on this forum and is constantly updating the app. For $0.99, I'll definitely support a native BB10 developer.

It's only weakness is a pre-defined number of categories (5 I think). Developer is open to adding more, but in the meantime, I live and die by this app. Well worth the download...

Wow awesome review. I may even get it now. Thanks.

I would like to see the "show down" as well. I'm curious as to editors thoughts on other note apps vs Corky Notes and Lazy Lists :)

Corky Notes and Lazy Lists for BlackBerry 10 developer

This is definitely the best BB10 notes app out there. And carter bits just keeps making it better. The only feature it doesn't have (yet?) that I'd really like to see is the ability to import/export notes from/to .txt files.

@sleepngbear: That would be an awesome feature.

I also love the 'share' feature. I like browsing through sites and saving websites into various categories. I'm in the process of getting married and buying a new home, so I have categories set up for each. If something on the internet catches my eye, I share it to the appropriate category. Easy peasy...
