iPad Version of BugMe! - Updated with Quick Alarms and Keyboard Support

April 13, 2010 in Productivity (E)

[prMac.com] Wye Valley UK - Electric Pocket Limited today is pleased to announce a major update to the iPad version of BugMe!, the original note-taker and reminder application. The newest version now includes BugMe!'s famous "Quick Alarms", which make it simple to pick a time to get "bugged", and keyboard support, which let users type text onto notes as well as scribble them quickly with a finger.

BugMe! lets users jot quick notes and doodles - with their finger as the pen - just like a digital sticky note. With its new keyboard support, iPad users can add more detail to notes than they otherwise could by scribbling with their finger. BugMe!'s notes can be organized for reference, and even shaken into place. Users can set an alarm time on each note and BugMe! will sound the alarm and show a reminder when the task is due. A favorite feature with BugMe! users is the ability to quickly choose alarm times from a pick list of time intervals - for example 20 minutes or "top of the hour". This makes the application very effective for informal, lightweight reminders, such as watching a TV show, or returning a phone call.

With BugMe!'s unique "Save to Home Screen" feature, users can save a copy of their most important notes to the iPad's app launcher screen. These small handwritten notes can be dragged and positioned as with any application icon so important BugMe! notes and reminders can be organized and visible on the Home Screen at all times. BugMe! enables users to start a note on a choice of colored paper styles or on photos from the user's album. Any photo can be used as a notepad for notes or doodles which can be used for shopping reminders or a fun email or tweet.
