[prMac.com] Cedar Park, Texas - WebIS is proud to announce Note2Self 1.11, an update to their simple and easy-to-use audio recorder for Apple iPhone. Designed from the ground up to take advantage of the iPhone's unique abilities and interface, Note2Self is an incredibly simple application to keep track of task items via the email inbox.
As wonderful as iPhones are, they still lack an easy way to create actionable items with the most natural method of output: the human voice. Note2Self allows anyone to quickly record a voice note, save it in a Saved Notes list and automatically send it to a preset email address. All of this can be performed hands-free, without having to select a contact, type text, or any other distraction that could prove dangerous or difficult to do.
The key to unlocking productivity is for Note2Self to be incredibly streamlined and focused. Start Note2Self. Bring the iPhone up to the ear and start talking. Bring it back down and the recording stops. The recorded message is saved or emailed automatically.
"... collecting short notes to yourself and sending them off - it works extremely well" Jesse David Hollington, iLounge.
Version 1.11 offers additional features which will be particularly useful to anyone on the go. Users can now choose to shake the iPhone to record a note, or simply turn it face down on a desk. And Note2Self also sports GPS Location Tagging of voice notes too, making it easy to see at-a-glance the location from where the note was taken.
Additionally, users may re-order notes up or down the list, so naming and ordering of voice notes brings Note2Self up to a new level of note taking.
Version 1.11 improves greatly by adding the following features:
* Automatic recordings using the accelerometer by bringing the phone to your ear, turning it upside down or shaking
* Added Settings to turn off Accelerometer Support
* Pausing recordings
* GPS Location Tagging of Voice Notes
* Google Map integration
* Naming of notes
* Clear All Notes
* Reorder Notes
* New detail page for notes to show more information
* Volume control
* More options to better control Note2Self
* Improved Reliability
Leveraging Apple's Cocoa Touch foundation, Note2Self is gorgeous looking and truly an easy to use application. It uses the proximity sensor to turn off the screen when the iPhone is brought up to the face. And likewise, the accelerometer toggles recording on and off automatically. Instant, hands free voice mail. Only on the iPhone.
Note2Self can record audio as long as there is free space, and offers two encoding options to help decide the quality of the voice message which are playable with Apple's QuickTime software.
Note2Self Sending Service:
While the iPhone email client is capable of sending attachments, this ability is not yet available to Apple iPhone Developers. So for Note2Self to send email voice notes, WebIS has set up a passthrough server that accepts voice notes via a web service and then sends the email to the recipients.
* iPhone or iPod Touch 2.0
Pricing and Availability:
Note2Self 1.11 for iPhone is only $2.99 USD and available exclusively through Apple's App Store.
