“I’ve been searching for so long for a note app that works. I think this is the one that really does the jobs of note taking. Should make this the default/native note app for PlayBook!”

Hello groovies! I was just wondering about this app the other day and the lack of updates for a while, good to hear from y'all. A few issues I have;
1. Texts I find are too small the size of the texts in the bridged memopad would be ideal and a better font or fonts you can choose the type and size you prefer to view
2. Some autotext action would be a killer
Give me those two things especially larger fonts and I'm good!
Well done guys portrait is excellentAim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.

This app is hands down one of the best apps I've purchased for PlayBook. It's perfect for me, it's absolutely beautiful, and XLabz develops great applications.
For anyone who is thinking about purchasing this, especially after these great updates, I assure you that you won't be let down.
Thank you XLabz, for helping me capture my mind!

i'm a big fan of this app. it's so well designed. users asked for these new features and the developer delivered. well done.
will there be implementation of photo or video capture in the near future? i would like to use the PB screen cap to take a photo of a street map or use the camera to take a photo of an item i see on sale at the store and link the photo to a note, task or appointment.
keep up the good work.

Good news with the recent updates! Thank you guys. As everyone mentioned already,
Following things make this app a greatest PB application.
1. Better font size.
2. Predictive Typing/Spell check.
3. Instead of only texts scrolling up & down on a constant notebook background, both
should move when we scroll through texts. This makes visually better.
I know you guys are constantly working on your apps to deliver best things! Hope to see an update in near future.

microsoft app store when it launches with windows 8
but in the mean time I am looking forward to freehand/stylus support, currently using handrite (android sideload) for that it works pretty well but imagine if your beautiful app did that.

How about offering your desktop companion software from your own company website. Dataviz did it for their DocsToGo? I would also like to see an alternative backup site to Dropbox since theirs isnt a supported app on Playbook. How about Box or even backup to desktop would be great.
