"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."Sir Richard Branson
We give the use of technology to humans a lot of thought. With the help of our initial software, SoundAMP, iPhones might be used as multiband digital hearing aids to assist those with mild to severe hearing loss. Based on the realization that the iPad permitted a new sort of note-taking, particularly with increased review and replay of notes made in a class or meeting, we released Notability, the first app of its kind, in 2010. Millions of kids, families, and individuals throughout the world rely on Notability, which is consistently listed as a top selling software in the iOS App Store. Our success with Notability inspired us to consider further demands for better, more straightforward digital experiences. What if we could eliminate the need to move between apps for communication and everyday tasks? Illustration of confetti a picture of lunch at the work lunch table by Ginger Labs workers We had a lot of experience with notes, but we desired an inbox experience that combined notes, reminders, and email. We believed that since our digital lives are interactive and collaborative, so should our inboxes, which should compile all of our information for easy access in one location. Our team has been developing, testing, and breaking numerous concepts for a better communication channel for more than two years. The outcome is Twobird, a novel email app that is currently accessible on all significant desktop and mobile platforms. In order to assist users focus on what's most crucial in their digital lives and comprehend material more quickly, our goal is to develop cutting-edge apps that accommodate all learning styles. Illustration of confetti our opinions Picture of a card game being played by Ginger Labs staff The best technological tools, in our opinion, support focus and creativity while being strong and intuitive. Technology can and should work for you, boosting the interactions and information that are most important, not for it to be the center of your day, in our opinion.
Three things that could make this app perfect. 1. I’d love a repeat feature I could set to pop up on a day of the week or date of the month, even annually for anniversaries or birthdays. 2. I’d love a time feature with an alarm/ visual pop up. Remind me to see my note for an appointment, deadline or to take my meds! 3. Attach my note to the calendar app and open it with a touch I will likely purchase the full version of this handy app without these features because it is so much easier and more functional than many other notes apps. I love it but there is a gap in functionality that could b filled.
vNote is a straightforward app that gets right to the business at hand. No dates, deadlines, alarms or labels. Your notes are contained within a single screen, and you have the ability to customize how they are displayed by adjusting the fonts, colors, and sizes. This allows you to obtain all of the necessary information in a single glance.
The interface is great: I like the low priority & unsubscibe, and the inbox is organized, simple and easy to look at. Unfortunately, the app is missing MAJOR features: PDFs (and many other types of attachments) can't be opened, and no attachments can EVER be downloaded (to open separately maybe), multi-selection doesn't allow most of the important organization features (labeling, moving, setting reminders), so you have to go into each one manually and do the things, also no way to print at all.

Great app, great cross-platform support. Still lacking a few key features that would make it a no-brainer. E.g. I have a Google account with more than one alias set up, but I have to remember to manually select which alias to send an email every time. (Thankfully it automatically selects the right one when replying, but not for forwarding.) The calendar support is there, but I'd love for it to support event colors since I color code many events on one of my calendars. Great potential!

I cannot wait to see how this app evolves. Things I love: - The texting-like interface---makes email feel like less of a slog - Markdown!!! - Free but with premium features, including snoozing, send later, hiding external images, etc. - Notes!!! Things that could be improved: - I don't love the interface aesthetics: --- (1) the font is chunky (especially in bold); would be amazing if there were options here. --- (2) the color highlights are dominated with eye-wateringly bright pinks and purples. I'd love to be able to turn off colors. --- (3) the icons are a little oversized

Like having all my notes in nice little cubes, all on one continuous upward scrollable page. Better than others with multiple pages to contend with. Adding notes is fast & accurate, haven’t lost a single note or part of a note. Nice color & background art choices. Simple & pleasantly easy to use. A title line at the top of each note would be nice, but, surviving quite we without it. Well thought out & executed.

My thanks to Nicola, the developer. I had a little notes all over the table and affixed with magnets to the refrigerator. There were shopping lists for various stores, to-do task notes, etc. ~ This gives me an attractive, easy to see place to consolidate all those notes. ~ I'm not misplacing little pieces of paper anymore, and my home is much tidier. ~ Life is easier--fewer things to forget. ~ It is also helping me to get things done, as I can arrange notes in the order of what I need to accomplish first. I am looking forward to more available colors, and being able to add photos would be great.
I love the app. I purchased it due to the ease of use. However, after I purchased the app the ads were gone but I cannot get the Touch ID to work. This was important to me. Can I get a help with this? It deserves 5 stars except for thic one factor.
