“Notebooks is a wonderful App, which is so much better than the dozen other note apps I tried on my iPhone. It is sophisticated, in an unassuming way, so that you find yourself greatly rewarded and being productive without sacrificing time/effort to the App. I cannot tell you how much productivity I have gained by staying with your Notebooks. I am having a huge amount of fun, I use it constantly, more than the phone on my iPhone in fact." - Craig, Australia
Notebooks is the one and only notebook that you'll ever need. It allows you to create as many virtual books as you need to write, store and structure your details of life, and so it can quickly become the one and only repository for all your journals, ideas, notes, drafts, diaries, projects, task lists and everything else you want to keep close at hand.
Notebooks stores and displays almost any document you want to carry with you: text and HTML, PDF documents, MS Office or iWork documents, web pages, photos, videos, music and even your Palm memos. Everything you would usually print out and file can now go directly into Notebooks, without adding bulk.
There is one more thing: keep your task lists in Notebooks and tick off your to-dos as you complete them. Divide your projects into nested sub projects, which makes them easier to handle, and cross-reference to your reference library, which you keep in Notebooks, too. When a task reaches its due date, Notebooks' badge on the home screen reminds you of pending business, and an optional acoustic alert tries to draw your attention.

• Note Taker
