Note+ app adds SkyDrive backup support

Published by at

The Note+ app, which we've talked about previously as being "ideal for those looking for an ultra-simple note take experience" has been updated to version 2.4, adding support for SkyDrive back up and screen orientation lock.

The addition of SkyDrive backup is a logical addition, ensuring peace of mind for what is potentially going to be very valuable data. However, do note that a restore functionality has not yet been implemented, although the developer says it coming soon. 

Note+ originally caught our attention because the app faithfully follows Microsoft's recommended design and implementation guidelines. Adding SkyDrive backup to the mix reinforces the impression that this is the third party note taking app that ties in most closely with the Windows Phone ecosystem and associated services.

As we've previsouly noted Note+ fulfils a particular niche:

Note+ can be seen as an alternative to Windows Phone built in OneNote app, but while it is in the same broad app category, it's really serving a different audience. If you're the sort of person who keep numerous small text notes scattered around the place, then Note+ maybe the ideal app for you. It may not have the complexity of other note taking apps, but it does have a gentle learning curve, and is a very close digital analog to the post-it-note approach to keeping track of things.
