I know that BlackBerry has a Notes app that comes with the OS, but MiniNotes is the app that allows you to customize your notes your way. In fact, I have opted to use the MiniNotes in place of the native Notes app. I’ll share with you what MiniNotes is and why I prefer it.
MiniNotes is a small application. It holds your notes for you just as the Notes application does, but it does so with style. When you install it, it’s an icon with a paper and pencil that says “mini notes”. When you open it, it can take your current notes and import them. Now here’s where the customization begins.
It allows you to first choose your font and the size of your font. Next it gives you the choice to leave the font or to bold it. It also gives you the ability to make it italics or as is. There’s a Color chooser to choose the color of the font. There are eleven backgrounds to pick from as well, so you don’t have to use the basic white background and black font. It’s your notes your way. There are seven categories as well so that you can feel free to categorize your notes, which if you have several notes, you can file them so much easier.
You can also filter by category or by word to find the notes you’re looking for in a hurry. I use notes quite a bit to catch my quick thoughts, information I need to keep, or simple things that I want to have on hand. It’s so much easier to be able to categorize them, but I also love the ability to keep them fun and appealing by setting my fonts and background.
Pros: You can send notes as Calendar, Email, or PIN. You can store your notes on the Micro Sd card. You can export them as text files. MiniNotes is available in the BlackBerry Sync Store for only $3.99, but if you act now, you can grab a copy for $2.99. This app is perfect and is as exciting and nice as OS 6.0 is. Total customization of your notes at your fingertips.
Cons: I didn’t find one con as my notes are now customizable the way I want and I can share them or export them as I need to, and save them.
