MemoMa - Everyday Note App

MemoMa - Everyday Note App

Tsuyoshi Niwa

MemoMa is a simple note taking app. It saves your notes in your calendar, which means you can read the same notes from any devices or web sites as long as the same calendar can be configured. Your notes can be displayed next to other calendar events. Having both your notes and your events on a single timeline makes the context easier to understand when you review them. Also, because the data is on your calendar, it’s synced across devices automatically and seamlessly. You can move your notes from MemoMa to other apps if your calendar supports exporting, such as CSV. Because your notes are saved reliably on portable media, you don’t have to worry about losing them when you upgrade your OS or purchase a new device.

What It Can Do:
- Write a plain text note with non-animated emojis.
- Show notes and events on the same timeline, all expanded (no need to tap each item).
- Off-line access.
- Automatic syncing when online.
- Spotlight search or search within app
- Supports iPad & Apple Watch

What It Can NOT Do:
- No tags
- No formatted text
- No images or videos.

Simple Note Taking - Buno

Simple Note Taking - Buno

HELLOWORLD DEV PRIVATE LIMITED

When we started Buno (an abbreviation of Bucket Notes), the main purpose was to make note taking simple, beautiful and intuitive. And here we are to redefine that.

Here’s how:

• QUICK NOTES
Capture your everyday thoughts with our simple swipe gesture that makes it super easy to take notes
- Swipe down, take a note and swipe down again to save it.
- Minimal interface to avoid any distractions while taking notes to help you focus on writing
- Clip inspirations, images or even your sketches.
- Organisation is made easy with our systematic bucket technique that helps you categorise thoughts seamlessly. Create a Bucket or save it into “Uncategorised” to move it later on.
- Real-time word count for writers to keep a track of progress.

• SECURITY
Apart from design, our next focus was mainly on security due to the sensitive information a user can save on our app. We took utmost care in developing an advanced encryption system that protects your notes on the server side incase of any unauthorised access.
We also built a clean 4-digit password protection that can be activated from the Settings tab.

• GESTURE
Buno was created with a goal to make buttons redundant so developed a gesture based UI that helps you take notes with just one swipe to start and save your thoughts.

• SEAMLESS SYNC
Buno syncs seamlessly with Android, iOS and Web App(coming soon). Take note on one device and continue editing on another device. Our advanced mechanism syncs notes so quick that you won’t even notice it.

• SHARE, MOVE or DELETE
We love to share what we create so once you swipe left on any note you'll have icons which will help you share your note across different platforms, move to a different Bucket or delete it from the server completely.
