New apps are actually easier to use, therefore, more useful, although with far fewer unnecessary features. Here’s a good example of an app that blends notes with a calculator. Think of it as a spreadsheet that’s easy to use, but more like a piece of paper.
That’s what NumbNotes does. It’s a calculator, which makes it easier to use than a traditional spreadsheet. Each item that needs calculations also has room for notes.
See? It’s a simple mix of a spreadsheet (which can have column and row headings), with a calculator (does calculations) with a note pad (which forms the headings).
NumbNotes organizes like a list of notes or items. Calculations can be set up as separate lists, and easily moved around, but calculations themselves are instant and in the background.
Additional quick functions (similar to sum calculations on a spreadsheet) are a click away.
They also save tedious retyping of simple formulas.
As your list of items grows you can click to show the search function. Or, click the Keypad button to enter numbers even faster.
Any item can be named and renamed on the fly, or share a whole list as a PDF. NumbeNotes is really useful once you get over the mild learning curve. It’s not a spreadsheet, but if you’ve ever used a spreadsheet for simple lists and calculations, this is better.
As soon as I began using NumbNotes for a few calculated lists I began to think of other spreadsheet-like formulas that would be handy. Well done and a bit less expensive than Apple’s Numbers spreadsheet app.
