The aptly named note-taking app Notefile has just been updated to version 1.5, highlighted by a faster launch time and other subtle user interface improvements.

In an age where apps seem to get bigger and bigger, Notefile is bucking the trend as the new version will take up much less space on your iOS device.

Once the app is launched, users should notice that tapping a link now automatically brings up the site in Safari. On the UI side, there is now selectable text sizes and a prettier search bar.

On the iPad version, the search bar is no longer hidden. Files imported into the app also preserve their date, and the file name is added to the first line.

And along with the usual bug fixes, the release notes promise many other subtle improvements throughout the app.

Originally started as a Mac OS X widget, Notefile was released in the App Store a little more than 18 months ago. In our review of the app, Christine Chan said its one of the better options for note taking on the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

The app developer, Junecloud, is also well known for its excellent package-tracking app Delivery Status.

Notefile is a universal app compatible with the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. It can be downloaded in the App Store for $4.99 now.
