Well Symbian fans if you ever asked yourself if an Evernote application would ever be available for our beloved OS, your wait is over. Notekeeper comes to rescue us all. I’ve been awaiting for a decent Evernote client for ages. The WRT client previously available was a disaster. It stopped working since Symbian Anna, not to mention Belle. Even MeeGo got an Evernote client before Symbian. But now you can rest easy as we finally have a choice. Notekeeper synchronizes with your Evernote account in a matter of seconds. It can display your rich text notes even if you can edit only the plain text ones. The team behind Notekeeper came up with an ingenious way to allow you to do some editing on those rich text notes. It’s called append text. Basically you can append any amount of text at the end of such a note.
Each note can be reassigned to a notebook by pressing the information button on the toolbar. Just select the notebook option and then select the desired notebook. From the same menu you can also tag a note with one of the existing tags or even create a new tag. Overall the application has a very responsive user interface and that is on a 680MHz Nokia N8. On the latest generation of Symbian devices is probably even faster.
What I would like to see from this app in the future is widgets. Yes, more than one. I would like to see a widget that can browse trough my notes, and one shortcut-style widget to allow me to quickly create a note.
So let’s sum it up:
- Evernote access
- Nice and fast user interface
- Simple to understand and effective to use
- No rich text editing
- No copy/paste text from rich text notes
- No AMOLED friendly dark theme for the user interface
Notekeeper has a 10 day trial version available in the Nokia Store(download it here) and a full paid version(download it here). No matter if you’re a fan of Evernote or not, the app is definitely worth a try. For updates on the all you can follow @notekeeperapp on Twitter or visit their website.
