QwickNote, by Arbezone, is a simple and efficient note taking app for Android. Aside from the fact that it flaunts a smooth, stable and responsive swipe/gesture based user interface, the app also supports speech-to-text input so it makes it easier for you to create and update your notes using voice. In addition, the app also supports file attachments. You can add up to three attachments per note. For a quicker access, you can opt to pin your important notes to your home screen using the app’s built-in widget.
When using the app for the first time, you will be guided by its welcome tutorial. Since the app supports swipe/gesture controls, it makes it easier for you to access certain sections within its UI. If you swipe from left to right, you’ll be able to open the app’s menu. If you swipe from right to left, you’ll be able to open its folder menu. If you want to see the options for each note, just swipe the note from left to right. To delete a note, just swipe the note to the opposite direction.
Another thing that I like about the app is that it lets you set reminders. As a matter of fact, this app lets you set one-time reminders, repeating reminders and even alarms. You can also create to-do lists for your work and day-to-day chores.
All in all, I can say that QwickNote can really help you take quick notes. It’s not only a fast and reliable app, it is also user-friendly. You won’t regret using it especially if you are someone who likes to take notes. It’s also good to know that this app supports a home screen widget. Plus, it lets you sort out your notes into different folders.
In addition, QwickNote has the advantage over other note taking apps because it offers a wide range of features and options. Nevertheless, it also has its own share of downsides such as its lack of support for secure (password-protected) notes. Furthermore, the app does not automatically convert URLs to active links. You also cannot sort out your notes by date modified or by alphabetical order.
