When it comes to a Note, To do and Reminder apps for Firefox OS, there’s a quite large number of them on Firefox Marketplace, but what makes Fox Note different from them? Colorful and attractive design plus three important options combined into one app.
Classic flat and colorful design, with even more impressive icons, Fox Note is divided into three sections: Reminder, Note and To Do section.
Reminder is easy to use. By pressing plus button in upper right corner, menu where you can add details about the event you want to record, will pop up. You can add name, date and time of it (no description of it, we’ll get back on this later), just basic stuff.
Creating notes in the Note section is the same as reminders in Reminder section, pressing plus button in the upper right corner of the screen. It will open new window screen where you can enter Title of the note, and of course description of it. There are also three more things that make this app special: attaching video, picture or audio file for the note. These options can be very usefull in some situations, for example you can take a picture of some gift you want to buy with other friends to another, simple take a picture with short description of it and show it to them.
And finaly, the To Do section. By pressing plus button, on the bottom of the screen will show up input bar where you can type whatever you want and add it to your to do list. It works that simple. Also when you finish something from the list, simple press the checkmark icon and the task will be deleted.
So far we only wrote about the good sides of application, but let’s focus little on the bad ones (even there is only two of them).
First things that comes bothering me is the speed of the app. Sometimes it works fast, but sometimes there’s a delay of one second after pressing buttons, app also flash for that one second, but mostly of the time, app working fine.
Second one, if we may call it the bad side, is that there’s no option to edit events, notes, nor tasks (nor descriptions of reminders), but as it is written in the description of the app: “This app has been created for your daily use”, and it is realy designed for that, so is this good or a bad thing, we leave it to you to decide, in the end it’s based on your own needs.
Conclusion: Well designed, work great, have everything you need for taking notes and setting reminders, easy to use. Ignoring the minor problems around speed and editing notes, yes, this is definitely app that every Firefox OS user should own.
