There are a number of note taking apps available for Windows Phone, including Microsoft's own OneNote. Another one (like you'd need any more choices) potentially worth mentioning is Metro Wordpad. The app is a well-rated and popular Windows Phone notepad that enables consumers to create folders, send notes to others and more. It's a neat little app that's worth checking out if you're not digging the likes of OneNote.
As expected, Metro Wordpad shares numerous features and functionality with similar apps. It's worth noting (pun intended) that the app may not be as feature rich as Evernote and other apps backed by companies and larger developers, but as an alternative it's pretty neat. There are a few unique elements to the solution, which provides a few unique touches. Here are some of the features of Metro Wordpad:
- Create folders for notes to be stored within and pin said folders to the start screen
- App theme matches current accent setting
- Search for notes with the built-in search functionality
The app was bumped to version 1.3, which included support and optimisations for Windows Phone 8. Advertising is implemented, with an ad-free version of the app now available on the store for a minute fee. One feature that's rather handy is the ability to pin folders of notes to the start screen, as well as individual notes themselves.
The overall design of Metro Wordpad is heavy influenced by the modern look of Windows Phone and Microsoft's simplistic user interface. The app reflects the current phone accent throughout and search functionality is included to quickly locate saved notes.
