It’s the end of August and summer is coming to an end (sob). Soon, students across the United States and other parts of the world will be sucked back into the thing they dread most: school. But do not despair. With your iPod Touch (or iPhone) in hand, you can download the following applications that could very well make your transition into the school year much more bearable.
I’m a bit of an app fiend, especially for productivity type apps. Despite already having tried some great note apps, and having settled on Momo, I couldn’t resist getting my hands on Awesome Note. The icon fairly well jumped out at me, and looking at the screenshots, I was thinking I really shouldn’t spend that money. Nonetheless, I carefully looked over the app description – it didn’t sync to any online services, have a passcode lock, or live email, URL, and phone number links. Actually, it currently doesn’t have a lot of other features either, though the passcode lock and ability to sync online are my requirements for a note app. I sent an email off to the developers (BRID), and they promptly told me that these features are in the works and coming in the next update. I was sold, and downloaded it to see just how “awesome” this app really is.
