Note taking is definitely something I do often with my iOS devices. And a Dropbox-powered solution, Notesy, has been updated to version 2.1 featuring a slate of new features.

Probably the biggest addition to the updated app is passcode support. Now users don’t have to worry about their notes being read by the wrong person.

On the UI side, the app has added a next/previous button when viewing a note and the artwork has been updated.

The toolbar has also been rearranged to reduce the amount of taps necessary for a markdown preview. The CSS has also been updated for the same purpose.

And if you haven’t upgraded your device with the latest version of iOS, you should now. Notesy, at a minimum, now only supports iOS version 5.0 and above.

The app has been around for a while since its release in late 2010. In our original review of Notesy, Christine Chan said it was very quick to master and an easy-to-use solution.

Notesy is a universal app for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. It is available in the App Store for $4.99.
