    Hi all,

    I am the developer of eNote Taker and would like to introduce the app. The app has a simple and intuitive interface and allows you to take any kind of handwritten notes and to annotate PDF documents. What makes the app stands out is the seamless experience when taking notes.

    Features:
    • Take detailed notes easily using the close-up view and the associated auto-advance feature
    • Write and highlight directly on PDF documents
    • Rest your palm as you write with the palm rest
    • Integration with email and Dropbox
    • Five colors of inn and five thickness settings
    • Plain, ruled, squared and music paper
    • Responsive vector eraser
    • Take notes with your fingers or with capacitive styluses
    • Export a single page or a whole notebook
    • Sophisticated smoothing algorithm
    • Notes are stored in vector format, which means your notes will always look great

    You can watch the (outdated) video demo here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivpegfohAbY
    You can also visit the (outdated) website for more information: http://enotetaker.com

    Please PM me when it's available on the App Store. I am still in search of a good note-taking app, as I have tried several others and I'm still not happy with each of them for particular reasons. Depending on the price, I'd like to give this one a try.

    Thanks!

    No problem! This is the reason why I created eNote Taker :) I hope you will like it.

    That looks like it could be a great app (although it would be even better with DropBox support ;) )

    I've signed up on your site and am looking forward to it being released: It could well be the note taking app I've spent months looking for

    I'm with this guy. I've spent quite a while looking and a fair sum of cash. Even the supposed best didn't hold up. Looking forward to this.

    Great, thanks :)

    fingers crossed Apple will get it through the approval process quickly: It really looks like it will be a useful app

    Looks really good - is there a portrait orientation?

    Going by the features you listed I'm not seeing anything your app offers that's not already part of the other note taking apps I already have. That being said I will most likely give it a go to see if the user experience sets it apart from other apps. What price will the app be selling for when it's released? I'd also appreciate a PM, if possible, when it becomes available.

    Good luck with the effort, appreciate the heads up.

    No problem! The app will be less than $5. I hope you will like the app. Huge amount of time were spent on creating the responsive and seamless note-taking experience.

    Nice job on the website. Without having tried the app I felt your site gave me a pretty good idea of what I can expect from eNote Taker. Hopefully the simplicity and quality reflect the design of the app.

    One piece of critisism though, I felt that this statement...
    ...detracts from the message you are looking to deliver. You don't really say, in quantifiable terms what eNotes delivers that the other apps do not. In the end it kind of comes off like your mom telling you how handsome you are.

    Looking forward to the apps release.

    take a page from the most successful apps out there, make it .99

    the scale you can achieve at the low end can open up this app to the world if it's a quality product. people will try anything for .99, but will ignore apps over $2

    I don't agree, most of the apps eNote will be competing against, Notetaker HD, NotesPlus, NoteShelf are all selling for $4.99. there might be some advantage in having an introductory price of $2.99, if the developer wants to get those who already have another note taking app or two to give his app a try. The app would sell on price rather than the strengths of the app. Selling at the commodity price opens the door for a greater number of bad reviews if you end up with a lot of sales to people who are not all that serious about a note taking app.

    What I'm looking for is a notetaking/text editing app that allows you to have a pair of windows open simultaneously -- so I can have notes on one side and write in the other. Will your app have this capability? And if not, is there any that does?

    Many thanks...A.

    Yes, I agree with you. I have removed that statement. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I have got almost all note-taking apps (handwriting) and none of them does what you say. I think the iPad screen is just too small... You can try to use the new four fingers gesture to switch between apps.

    May not be useful to you but I use BrowserNotes and Desktop all the time, both of which let me open pretty much whatever I want on one side and the other. Not handwriting, though.

    Love everything I'm seeing and can't wait to download it

    My only complaint - HATE HATE the name. Doesn't stand out and I have to imagine when searching in the store - other similar titles will show up.

    Hope the icon looks great though. I secretly judge all my apps by their icons.

    All seriousness though, really looking forward to this app

    This app DOES look awesome and I too am waiting for it. I haven't purchased any other note taking app, and I don't think I will.

    Btw what stylus do you guys suggest I get?

    I can not say enough about the AluPen, thicker yes, but compared to the boxwave I prefer it far and away.
    http://www.xtand.net/alupen.html I will have the Nataal later this week, have never used the 2nd generation Acase but have heard good things. I have the e.stylo coming as well which seems to be of choice for sketching, but you can write with it as well, limited quantities though.
