We're not short of note taking apps for BlackBerry 10 but there's always room for more, especially when of a high caliber and free. Swift Notes is just that. It's simple, attractive to use and offers all the features you would want from an application like this. 

Swift Notes takes on the style of post-it notes. Each time you create a new one it appears on screen as a yellow tile allowing you to give it a quick tap to dive into it for full reading or editing. 

Along the base of the display are three tabs, which are shortcuts for the style of note you wish to make. The options are:

  • Text note
  • Image
  • Voice

You can of course combine all three into one note as demonstrated on the video. If for example you have started creating a note with text you can tap the overflow menu (three dots) and you'll be given the option to include an image from your gallery or record a voice message. The voice recording is all done from within the app and once completed it just slots itself into the note perfectly. 

Sharing is built in and this is achieved via any accounts you have in your BlackBerry Hub, therefore giving you a wide range of options - from BBM, email, SMS, Evernote etc. 

Considering that Swift Notes is free and with no catches you can't really get better. The app is available for all BlackBerry 10 smartphones so go and give it a try - and enjoy. Nice work Mr Developer.
