This app is a fantastic catch all for all your writing tasks:
- Take screen shots to capture ideas for inspiration, and add tags and notes.

- Use your phone to take screen shots of off-line research, receipts, etc., and upload to EVERNOTE.
Note: I have created notebooks for each of my writing projects, related marketing tasks, and monthly income reports.
