Notes By Email

Gee Whiz Stuff
­čÄą Demo video at ­čÄą. Harness the unbeatable speed and convenience of typing email on a full-sized keyboard to create notes on your iPhone. You don't need any special PC software. Notes By Email lets you create notes from any computer by simply emailing them to yourself. See the notes appear on your device instantly and access them with a clear and intuitive note management interface.

But WAIT... that's not all - the app is as powerful as it is simple. Here's a preview of some its features:

* Fast list making: You can create lists of notes as fast and easily as simple notes. Just use a hashtag (e.g. #Holidays) in the subject.

* Fast Sync for notes: Notes By Email has a super fast Sync option. Any change you make within the app - be it adding, deleting, or checking notes - is synchronized INSTANTLY across other devices sharing the same data. By instantly, we mean that the majority of syncs complete in the blink of an eye.

* Smart Comprehension: Notes By Email analyzes your notes to extract actionable items such as street addresses, phone numbers, URLs and email addresses. It displays these as buttons that you can press to open the corresponding app -- Maps, Phone, Safari etc.

Example uses:

* Question: How fast can you make a shopping checklist?
* Answer. In a few seconds. Type out the following email:

Subject: #Shopping Walmart (<---- Creates or adds to the list "Walmart" in category "Shopping")

* Dark chocolate
* Carrots
* Super glue

The first time you do this, you will get a new check list and the second time, your list will be extended with the new items.

* Question: How easily can you coordinate with a partner while shopping?
* Answer: With sub-second syncs, the moment you grab the milk or yogurt and check the corresponding items, they will get checked on your shopping partner's device. No need to gesticulate from the other end of store, or to peer through every aisle looking for him or her.

* Question: How easily can you note down an address or phone number when going on a drive?
* Answer. With Notes By Email, type out the following email:

Subject: Dr. Neville's office

5 Oriental Ct, Sunnyvale, CA. 2nd floor. 555-401-4141

The note will appear on your device in a few seconds with buttons to open the street address and phone number in the Maps and Phone apps, respectively. If you have this information in an email already then you don't even have to type it out, simply forward the email.

* Question: How conveniently can you track your daily calorie intake?
* Answer: With ease, using Notes By Email. Use your favorite search engine to search for a calorie count (e.g. try "calorie count in coffee latte") and email the result:

Subject: #Calories Feb 1

* Coffee latte - 180
* Bagel - 300
* Banana - 105

It's a breeze getting started. Swipe to the left-most screen and use one of many functions for adding your Notes By Email address to your iCloud contacts, or sending it as a contact to your Gmail, Yahoo or Outlook accounts. There are also examples for the various types of notes you can create.
