[prMac.com] Lakeville, Minnesota - Viet Tran, the independent mobile application developer behind Notes Plus has announced the recent update to his popular productivity iPad app. The developer expressed great content with Notes Plus 2.1, crediting the app's emphatic user base with providing enough constructive and in-depth feedback to greatly aide the developer in effecting a number of significant improvements into this update. As a means of celebrating the launch of Notes Plus 2.1 as well as expressing gratitude and an unwavering commitment to his consumers, the developer is offering this utilitarian app - normally priced at $4.99 - for the reduced price of $1.99 for the next three days. Now fully compatible with iOS 4.2, Notes Plus 2.1 is currently available for download on the Apple App Store.
The vast majority of updates included in Notes Plus 2.1 were implemented as direct responses to consumer feedback regarding the app's earlier incarnations. To help satisfy customer's needs, the newest version of Notes Plus is able to export full note pages as images, allowing users to quickly save them within their iPad's photo library or iTunes, email them as images, or upload them onto Google Docs as single page PDF's. Furthermore users now have the option of locking completed notes to be read-only, while updates to the app's editing functionality now allow users to change both the pen and font settings of existing text as well.
Notes Plus' user interface has also undergone a series of improvements based on customer feedback. The developer has added the option of 'quick selecting' different pen strokes and fonts, as well as adding the ability to lock the app's 'tap-to-text' to better accommodate users who mainly utilize the keyboard while taking notes. Additionally, Notes Plus 2.1 features optimized page navigation keys, quick page insert and delete buttons, as well as improved 'line advance' and 'manual advance' buttons to help users more effectively utilize the app's close-up writing area feature.
While Notes Plus already represents a step up from other currently available note taking applications, the breadth of user guided improvements included in the app's first significant update serve to differentiate it from analogous competing iPad utilities even further. Such dedication to quality and overall performance have been integral in assuring Notes Plus' rise to popularity within the App Store, where roughly two weeks ago it surpassed Apple Inc.'s own native Pages note taking app to top the store's productivity category. Designed with performance and usability as its chief concerns and improved by user input, Notes Plus 2.1 proves that even the most well developed applications have potential to further improve.
