New Nimbus Note for Android – Note Widget, Auto Sync and Backup for Offline Accounts

We released a new version of Nimbus Note for Android with a few important changes.

Note widget

Now you can read your notes right in the widget. And not only read, but also check the completed tasks on the TODO list. You can also set the widget transparency.

Backup

An important update for users without a Nimbus Note account. Now you can save your notes to a ZIP archive and, if needed, quickly restore them from there. You can find the backup in Settings.

Auto-synchronization

Situations when you forgot to synchronize the note and all the important data did not arrive at another device are in the past! Now auto synchronization occurs right after you create or edit a note, so you will always have an up-to-date set of notes on all devices.

This release also comes with quite a few old bugs fixed. If you detect any new bugs, please do drop our support service a line!

New version of Nimbus Note for iPad – Autosync, line spacing and other features

The new version comes with many changes, and here are a few ones worth mentioning:

Auto-synchronization and background synchronization

In this updated version, a new very useful feature appeared. Now Nimbus Note will update the contents of your account even if the app is running in background mode. Also, every time you run the app, automatic synchronization will launch. You can disable auto synchronization in settings.

 Line spacing

Now you can set  lines spacing for a note yourself. You just need to press on Line Spacing button and select requied value.


Folders and tags in the web clipper

Many users were able to appreciate the advantages of our clipper. Now it’s even more convenient to work with – you can set a target folder and tags for a future note.

 Possibility to select a default name for your notes

A note title is crucial for quickly locating exactly the one you need. Now you can select a default title for your notes (unless you want to type in something specific of course):

a) The note title will consist of the first words from the note text.
b) The note title will be a combination of date and time.

We hope you will enjoy the new features. If  you encounter any bugs, we will be most grateful for letting us know right away.

Here are the most important changes:

1) Possibility to edit notes without switching to a separate editor window. Basically, you can be reading a note and editing it on the spot (it takes just a simple tap anywhere in the note).

2) Convenient sidebar in the window for viewing/editing a note. On this panel you can quickly change the note folder, note tags, as well as receive a direct link to your note or change geolocation.


3) Editor Optimization. Many of our users have complained about the editor, and rightfully so. In this version we redesigned our editor significantly, making it better and more stable. We also added the Undo-Redo feature to simplify working with text.
4) Numerous minor bugs that would often interfere with the app work were fixed.

New Nimbus Note for Android – material design, new widget, call reminder

We are pleased to announce the release of a new version of Nimbus Note for Android, in which we added a multitude of new features and possibilities.

Download Nimbus Note for Android – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bvblogic.nimbusnote

New note list
We decided to rearrange the list items. Firstly, previews were moved to the left, while descriptions were removed. The great thing about it is that now there is no limit on the number of characters for the note title, and every note’s full title will display on the list. Also, notes that have not been downloaded from the server are not marked with a special symbol: instead, their title appears gray. Therefore, we made the note list cleaner and more user-friendly, at least in our opinion.

Quick folder access
If in the old version you had to make a number of steps to switch from folder to folder. Now you can do it right from the note list. Just tap on the top bar and select the required folder.

Advanced widget
The widget’s main purpose is quick access to the app information without any need to open the app. Of course, you will not be able to read a note right from the widget window (how useful would this option be anyway?), but you will definitely be able to view tasks and check the completed ones.

Creating notes with a swipe
We couldn’t but add the + button to create new notes, which offers a number of advantages. There, is, however, a disadvantage – you need an extra tap to create a new note. Insignificant? Perhaps, but for many users it can be quite irritating (judging by the feedback for apps that already added such a button). We thought about it some more and decided to add yet another way to quickly create a note – a swipe starting at the right side of the screen will bring up a new note screen. It turned out pretty convenient too. I myself, being an active app user, hardly ever use the + button, except for when I need to make a photo or create a TODO note.

Call Reminders
Here’s how it works – you create a call reminder for the required note, type in the phone number (or select from the contact list). You will see the note with the incoming call information. The feature has been tested more than once and proved extremely useful.

Dark theme
You should be equally comfortable using the app (editing or just reading notes) no matter if it’s light or dark. This is why we added another eye-friendly full-fledged dark theme. The letters appear white against the dark background, which is perfect when reading in the dark. You can switch between Day/Night modes from the side bar.

New Web Client: Subfolders, Auto-Save and other features

We are happy to announce the update of our web client. It took us quite a while to finish the work on it, practically rewriting the client code completely.

Here are the main changes:

–       Subfolder support – you can create and view subfolders.
–       Note autosave to avoid loss of any information when printing out the note.
–       We merged note viewing and the editor, so you just need to click anywhere on the note to start editing it right away.
–       Shared pages have been optimized for mobile devices.

We also fixed a number of small bugs discovered in the previous version.

There are, however, a few disadvantages:

– We had to disable the full-screen work mode for now, but we will try to fix it as soon as possible.
– We disabled the option of group work on notes. At the moment we are rewriting the group work engine and will demonstrate it to you very soon.

New Nimbus note for iPad: web-clipper and improved editor

We are pleased to announce the release of a new version of Nimbus Note for iPad. There are several important things that are different in the new version:

1) Web Clipper

Saving various information from the Internet is among the most frequently used features in Nimbus Note. While special clippers are used for desktop browsers and Android devices, we decided not to devise a separate app for iPad, “stuffing” the clipper right inside the app. The clipper comes with a few features:

– Allows you to select a specific fragment of an internet page and save it to Nimbus Note (text is saved with all and any images);

– “Pulls” an article from a site, similar to Pocket or Instapaper;

– Makes and a site screenshot and saves it to your account;

 

2) Improved editor

Numerous changes have also been introduced to our editor. Here’s what we added:

– possibility to create bullet and numbered lists;

– possibility to select font for your text;

– text highlighter;

– possibility to align text left or right, as well as center text.

We have also significantly improved the app performance and synchronization speed. We will be happy to answer any additional questions you may have.

Time and Locations Reminders for Nimbus Note for iPhone

We are pleased to announce that we have added a new reminder feature to Nimbus Note for iPhone. This feature will help you finish your planned business in time. It is worth noting that reminders are the most requested feature, and our users asked us to create not only time-based reminders but also location-based reminders which we gladly did.

Time reminders

To add a new reminder to a note is very simple – just click on the corresponding icon in note preview and select the desired type: time-based or location-based. When you select a time-based reminder, you can set date and time for the application to remind you about the note. There is also a repeat function activated after a certain period of time.

Location reminders

Often there are situations when time-based reminders are useless as it may be not clear when you will get to a certain place. In such cases, location-based reminders will come in handy. They will give you an opportunity to not only focus on hours, minutes and seconds but also to receive reminders upon arrival to work or shop. Location-based reminders are not complicated either – you just select a place (or find it through a search form) and put a pin on it … and that’s it. And when you get to that place, you will only have to wait for your notification from the application.

New Nimbus Note for Windows: server backups, import from Opera 12 and other features

We are pleased to announce the release of a new Nimbus Note version for Windows. A number of useful features have been added. Here they come:

Server backups

Unfortunately, it’s pretty common to lose all your notes. That may happen for different reasons: the notes get deleted by accident, there’s a synchronization error etc. If before the problem was virtually impossible to solve, now you can always restore the lost notes from the server backup. For free accounts, server backups are stored for 2 weeks. For Nimbus Pro accounts, backups are stored for 10 weeks. Any Nimbus Note user can restore data from backup.

Quick opening of notes with current tag

There are often cases when you open a note with a certain tag and need to view other notes with the same tag. Surely, you can find the tag on the list, but it takes forever and is not at all convenient. Now Nimbus Note allows you to just double click the tag in your note to view all notes with the same tag.

Sort tags and folders by popularity

By default, all folders and tags are sorted by date: it makes sense in most cases. But what if from the great variety of tags, only a few ones are used often enough? How do you locate them quickly? It’s very simple – right click on All My Notes or Tags and select Sort by Popularity. On the top of the new list you will see the tags you use most often.

Import notes from Opera 12

Opera 12 is no longer supported, but it remains very popular still: its speed, user-friendly interface and other features placed this browser among the market leaders. Opera 12 came with its own notes: you could add text from internet pages or type stuff yourself. Now you can continue working with those notes in Nimbus Note, as we added a special tool to import notes. You just need to locate a file notes.adr (usually located at C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Opera\Opera\profile\) and import it through Import – Import from Opera file.

Full-screen mode in a large window

Nothing should keep you from comfortable work with your notes, including… the app interface. This is why we added the possibility of enabling full-screen mode using the F11 button. This will let you concentrate on your text without a single distraction.
