Look out geeks, iPad’s Noteshelf is the new Moleskin

Noteshelf- handwriting app for iPad

The Noteshelf app for iPad proclaims to be “the most beautiful note taking app ever designed for the iPad.” It is a handwriting notebook that “features super natural digital ink, a stunning UI and a comprehensive toolset that will increase the benefits of owning an iPad by leaps and bounds,” according to the iTunes description.

We would add that it is a very sleek looking app for the professional who still prefers handwriting but knows that digital storage and organization is far superior to scraps of paper. The app has 17 notebook templates, syncs automatically with Dropbox and Evernote, has over 450 icons (for example, you can add a tiny icon of a target if you have a goal to meet by a certain time) and users can embed photos into their notes. says, “The templates fill most needs: in addition to ruled lines and graph “paper” you also have musical notation paper, shopping lists, baseball scores, day planners, and personal journals. While using your fingertip works well, you’ll probably want to eventually use a stylus to write with a finer tip. All of your saved notes go to an iBook-like library. The wrist protection features is also nice; when this is activated you can rest your wrist on the screen without worrying about creating unwanted lines as you write or draw.”

The iPad handwriting app is $4.99 which given its functionality is a steal (click here for product screenshots). It’s official- Noteshelf is the new Moleskin*. Our first thought was that we would want a stylus and wondered if we would accidentally use our ink pens, given how realistic the app is, but we decided that if we decide to use Noteshelf, it would be with a designated iPad stylus.

*Moleskin is a small journal with either plain or lined paper that is typically pocket sized with a flexible black cover, best known in the world of geeks for taking notes at conferences (once used as a means of identifying a fake geek from a hipster geek).
