Catch Notes today has announced the launch of Catch Notes for Honeycomb, a tablet-friendly version of their note-taking application for Android.
I’ve been using Catch Notes since it was called 3Banana Notes (a much cooler name, IMO, but I digress), and am very excited to see this application come to Honeycomb, if for nothing else than to be able to view my notes that are stored on Catch’s servers. Improvements include a tablet-friendly UI as well as the following:
- Fragments: Creates multiple views so users can see more data on the screen
- Action Bar: Provides context-aware controls
- Tag Picker: Offers simplified tagging interface for quicker information capture
- Starred Notes: Supports lightweight organization for favorite entries
- Enhanced Note Editor: Allows faster composing using multiple images, voice memos, or file attachments
As far as how useful Catch Notes for Honeycomb will be now that Google has released their long-awaited Google Docs application, I’m not quite sure. I, and many other Android users I believe, use Google Docs pretty religiously and the thought of using two cloud-based note-taking applications makes me cringe a little bit.
But as always, I want to hear from you. Will you be rushing over to the market and downloading the new Catch Notes for Android, or does Google Docs (or another office productivity suite application) suffice for your mobile productivity needs? Sound off in the comments.
