[Review] OrganizeMe! – Springpad client for PlayBook by Sven Ziegler
Sven Ziegler, developer for ReadOnTouch PRO let us know about another product he built for BlackBerry PlayBook recently. This product is called OrganizeMe! – Springpad client for PlayBook. Sven brings the same quality of excellence we encountered with ReadOnTouch PRO to OrganizeMe.
- Many different object types (notes, bookmarks, recipes, shoppinglists, todo-lists, packing-lists,…)
- Possibility to create different notebooks
- Extensive filters and full context search on all elements(highlighting results corresponding to search term)
- All data is available offline
Changelog for version 1.3.1:
- updated: french and german translations
- changed: show delete icon per default (you can hide it via preferences)
- bugfix: renaming of notebooks is now possible
- bugfix: removed possible syncing bug
Now I must admit it did take me a while to get the hang of Springpad. Not because springpad.com/ is a confusing site at all. More because I didn’t have a lot of need to make any lists recently. However after I got my boys involved, explained to them what a wish list is, we got rolling on some items that we all would love to have. Fast forward to opening OrganizeMe! once we had some stuff to play with, and it’s all history from there.
Springpad is a social notes client unlike anything I’ve used before. Maybe I’m behind the times a bit. But after spending over a thousand dollars in Apple’s app store you could say I was done with Apple a few years back. BlackBerry and the PlayBook give me what Apple and BlackBerry handhelds did separately, but now together in one place. OM is definitely an evolution of this ideal to me.
The cool thing about Sven Ziegler’s apps so far is that they keep the same momentum. Options like fonts, font size, buttons, menus, etc all behave the same in both his releases so far. Made set up and usability easy.
Besides the obvious (read: setting up lists), OrganizeMe! gives users the ability to share url’s socially. Have something you want to send to a friend or just save to another area such as Mail, Create PDF’s (via Mail), Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
User’s build their own lists and OrganizeMe hosts them essentially. The UI is very crisp. Function is solid. Of course Sven brings the ability to sync everything. Settings allow you to set up a sync at start up, download thumbnails, or just sync when you’re ready. Another great function about OM is the ability to pull your Google Notes and Evernote accounts into the app. All in all I’d have to recommend it. Doesn’t matter if you’re already a Springpad user or a newcomer, this is a solid application.
OrganizeMe will set you back just $2.99 and all updates are free. Check out more at the link below.
