Readdle adds Remarks to growing field of note-taking apps

Readdle has launched a new note-taking app for the iPad, one that lets users share notes with collaborators or view the documents as PDFs on their home computer.

Remarks—a new offering from the maker of the popular ReaddleDocs application—debuted Wednesday in the App Store. The app lets users take notes in meetings, lectures, or interviews—entering text by typing or adding sketches with a stylus; sketchers can choose paper styles and ink colors for their notes. Users can also annotate PDFs imported from Dropbox, Box.Net, mail, or other applications. (Documents can also be shared to a user’s computer using a USB cable and the iTunes file sharing feature.) And documents created in Remarks can be shared with other Remarks users, adding a social collaboration component to the app.

Readdle’s new product joins an increasingly crowded field of note-taking apps for the iPad: CaptureNotes 2, Pear Note, Notability, and PaperPort Notes have all launched or seen significant upgrades in recent months. Each of those apps has a voice-recording component to let users flesh out their notes, however, a feature that Remarks lacks.

Remarks costs $5, and is compatible with iPads running iOS 4.2 or later.
