This note-taking app works like iMessage and it might be awesome

If you’ve ever tried to get into the habit of taking notes but never got them to stick, Note Yourself might be the app for you. The reason for this is simple – it doesn’t look or work like a note-taking app and looks more like a messaging app. It looks like one, works like one, and basically is a. Except your messages aren’t going anywhere and no one can bother you either.

Note Yourself is weird, but it can also be awesome in how it works. See, WhatsApp and some other messaging apps already have a way to send you messages. This may seem unnecessary to some, but to others it makes perfect sense. Need to remind yourself to do something or pick something up? Put it in a one-way conversation and you have a kind of timeline of events or, in this case, notes. Note Yourself works the same way but without all the added messaging elements.

The result is an interface that looks immediately familiar, and you create “cats” that are actually different notes. You can create a chat for groceries or for homework or whatever, really. But the idea is still the same – the notes are written as if it were a chat message and you hit the send button. Need a reminder? There is also an option for that.

Notable features include:

  • Pin messages in notes to make them stand out and appear as sent messages
  • Communication notifications that look like chats and can be scheduled
  • Store notes in separate chats
  • Share, pin, delete and lock chats by swiping left or right
  • Copy, share, edit and delete individual messages by swiping left or right
  • Find a specific cat
  • Dark mode support
  • VoiceOver support
  • 3D Touch
  • Simple and beautiful user interface
  • Small haptics when interacting, improving the overall experience

If that sounds good to you, you can try Note Yourself now. It is available for download from app store and costs $2.99. If you already send yourself messages instead of notes, this might be the best iPhone app for you.
