Do you ever need something written down quick and simply without having to browse through tons of options just to write down some info that maybe isn’t even that important in the first place?

Well for the past day, I have been using the new app called SwiftKey. I really do love this app, and I’m not just saying that because I want to. There is something about being able to write a quick note down without scrolling through numerous options to format something. Of course, the app does allow you to format text, but it keeps it out of the way until you need it. This eliminates space that would be needed to see what you’re writing.

When you open the app for the first time, a beautiful animation comes up asking if you would like to connect your Evernote account to the app. If you happen to use Evernote a lot at your home, on your tablet, or anywhere really, it’s probably a good idea to link the two accounts. This allows you to be able to write down some notes on your phone, and it will automatically be synced to your Evernote account.



Instead of using autocorrect, in all it’s hassle, the app runs it’s own correction system that’s more subtle. As with any app feature, there are pros and cons. My pros are that it will automatically learn a specific word that you entered, provided you press a button to the left that saves it. One con would be that if you don’t let it learn that word, it will automatically correct it exactly like autocorrect.

When it comes to notes in general, I really like how you can tag each note, so that if you happen to have many different notes, you can search for it using that tag you gave it. When you open up the notebooks tab, you will find that you Evernote notes are already present letting you edit them through the app.

In all it’s simplicity, the SwiftKey app is great for note taking and connecting your notes together. As long as it’s free, you should definitely get it.
