The Good UpWord Notes has an easy to understand interface and it's customizable with themes. Gestures let you cross off items from your todo lists and add special formatting you can't find in Apple's Notes app.
The Bad You can't add images to notes. You can't keep your formatting when sharing with other services or apps.
The Bottom Line With gestures, theme customization, and plenty of other useful features, UpWord Notes is better than most competing title and a great replacement for Apple's Notes app.
Gestures make note taking fast and fun
UpWord Notes helps you turn notes into actionable lists and reminders, but with quite a few more features than Apple's Notes app.
Indeed, though Apple's solution saw a big design overhaul in iOS 7, its features have barely changed since it debuted on the iPhone in 2007. That's why after a couple of days with UpWord Notes, I found it to be not only a great alternative to Notes, but even a solid replacement.
After installing the app you get a brief tutorial to show you the ropes. Here you'll learn how the app handles notes, along with how to navigate, use the gesture controls, and put the app to work for you. At the end of the tutorial, you can connect to your Dropbox account to sync your lists across any Dropbox-connected device you own.
