Note+ Updated: Full SkyDrive Support and New Secondary Tiles!

by Aälejandro Dí­azs - 2 years ago -

With the previous update, Note+ got SkyDrive support for backup. This time around, SkyDrive support gets completed: it now includes a really convenient restore function.

After you’ve created a backup, which gets stored in the Documents folder on SkyDrive, you simply tap the restore button. It’ll search for the file, decrypt it —as it used AES encryption before uploading—, then ask if you want to replace all notes. After the user confirms, the notes from the backup are immediately presented on the notes list.

Now, secondary Live Tiles have been revamped: instead of showing the note’s content on the back of the tile, it’s shown on the front, allowing the user to quickly read it without having to wait for it to flip. However, it maintains the flip animation, showing the Note+ icon on the back; so it’s still a live tile.

Finally, a ContextMenu was added to the notes list, making it possible to quickly share, copy to clipboard, pin to start and delete notes without having to go inside each one of them. This menu is accessed by long-pressing a note.

You can get Note+ at the Windows Phone Store for US$1.29. Future updates are expected, which will introduce even more useful and practical features for a better note-taking experience.
