Write 2 for iOS App Review

Write 2 for iOS App Review

We all know how good the iPhone and iPad are as a means to make notes, especially the latter option due to its larger screen, but of course a decent device is only half the battle and to really do it properly, you need a good note-taking app to go with it. While you are spoilt for choice when shopping for such an application, one that might be worth checking out is Write 2 HD, which works across different iOS devices, can be synced accordingly and is available now from the App Store for just $2.99.

Write 2 HD is a simple and efficient app for taking notes that offers all the basic features and throws some decent security measures into the mix. While it is not exactly exceptional, it gets the job done and the ability to sync it across your devices is certainly appealing. When you begin to create a file you start with a blank page but a neat little touch is a crumpled effect that gives it the appearance of a real piece of paper that has been handled a little, if not written on. This is the default theme but there are others to choose from, although if you want to be boring you can opt for a completely blank screen.

Notes can be made by typing on the onscreen keyboard, which includes a row for numbers and features a keyboard icon that will present further commands for you to use. This last feature is not available on the iPhone version, which just has the basic keyboard, so if you want to get the most out of the app, you should stick to the iPad version, although working across multiple platforms also has its benefits if you enable the autosync feature. This requires you to link the app to your Dropbox account but once it is all set up, you can edit a note on any synced device and the changes will be applied to all of them. This makes it much more convenient, especially if you leave your iPad at home by accident, but it essentially allows you to work on your writing anywhere.

When your work is complete you then have all the standard options you would expect from an app of this nature, including attaching it to an email to send it out, putting it in your Dropbox, printing it or converting it to PDF. What you do with it then is up to you. So far so unexceptionally good but what makes Write 2 HD stand out is its superior security features, including a PIN for privacy. Another great feature requires a separate download of an accompanying app, WriteMate, which will allow you to use one device as a keyboard for another, which declutters the main screen and provides you with a more workable keyboard. WriteMate is from the same developer and free so it is worth adding to this package.

Overall Write 2 HD is a fairly standard offering that doesn’t bring anything new to the table. But if all you need is a simple way to write notes that is reliable and functional, this app will be more than adequate.
