We take notes. Notes turn into todo lists (or, it could be the other way around; the result is the same). In my never ending quest to improve myself I take on the burden of trying out various and sundry utilities that might, if they’re worthy, improve my day (and hopefully, yours).
Hybrid apps that attempt to combine the best of two worlds fall into two categories. The kind that fail miserably. The kind that total more than the sum of the parts. NoteSuite is more than just notes and todo lists.
On the notes side of the fence NoteSuite acts more like a mini word processor with multimedia capability. Drop in photos, do outlines, blend in audio recordings, create lists with bullets, manage PDFs, Office files, and more in the NoteSuite library.
On the todo list side of the fence, NoteSuite excels with bulleted lists, reminders with due dates or start dates, sub-lists which act like tasks in a project, repeating todo items, tags for search, and, well, you get the idea.
Beyond the basics of notes and todo items, NoteSuite has a built-in web clipping function to save website pages, articles, even PDF files from your favorite browser (which needs to be Safari, Chrome, or Firefox).
Folders and tags can be organized as needed to match your workflow (rather than the other way around). NoteSuite’s total value is greater than the sum of the parts. What’s also impressive is the iPad version of NoteSuite (both OS X and iOS versions are priced the same) syncs files with the Mac using iCloud so files are always available.
It’s too bad there’s to trial version, but the price is a bargain and the number of four and five star reviews will give you an idea of what users think of NoteSuite.
