In our lab there are seminars almost every day, and I started to use my iPhone’s Notes function to record some information and thoughts I found interesting during the seminars. I am really not experienced in typing the iPhone keyboard yet so here are my first 2 trials first as screenshots and then the texts themselves. Problem: in order to use the Notes texts in a normal text editor you have to send it to yourself as an email attachment.
and the second trial, followed by the comparison of the 2 texts.
Well, both texts are hard to decode, but the second one has a bit more syntactically proper terms which is a sign of progress and gives me some hope to use the Notes function later after a serious human learning period as it was intended to be. The scoring for this function is 0.5.
The iPhone features a very light document editor called Notes. It is more cute then useful, with its stylish font and glamorous page flips. Instead, it would be good to have Copy/Paste support as well as more rich editing features. A better editor is probably in the works, but for now notes are only good for quick shopping lists.
