Quotebook 2.0 ($2.99) is available with a slew of great new features. It’s now universal, offers iCloud syncing and supports Instapaper and Launch Center. This has been one of my favorite apps since it was introduced. Go get it now.
Big thanks to Quotebook for being this week’s sponsor. I use this app all the time. It lets you store your favorite quotes in your pocket for easy reference. Recording a quote is simple, but that’s not important if you can’t find the one you want to read. Fortunately, Quotebook offers excellent search capabilities.
Tap the search bar on the app’s main screen to see four options: author, source, tags or all. Tap either to restrict your search, or use all (the default) to throw the net wide. Quotebook will search the body of each quote, the source, tags, everything. So even if you can’t remember the quote exactly, you’re likely to find it. Also, the Author, Sources and Tags buttons offer scrollable, searchable lists of their own.
Now that you’ve found that nugget of wisdom, don’t keep it to yourself! Quotebook makes it easy to share. While browsing any quote, tap the Share button to easily regale your family and friends via email, SMS, Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr. You preferred method not on the list? Just tap the Copy button and prepare to paste into your app of choice.
I’m giving away 15 copies of Quotebook this week. It’s an app you’ll be glad to own. Good luck.
The longer Quotebook has been on my iPhone, the more I’ve used it. This fun, handy app stores quotes that you’d like to recall whenever the mood strikes.
Most of the time you’ll use Quotebook to capture quotes. [1. Some of my favorites include “Because I said so,” “There, it’s broken are you happy now?” and “Don’t make me turn around.” Your list may differ.] It’s easy to get started: just tap the “+” button to create a new record and start typing. It’s fun because Quotebook does a lot of the work for you. For example, tap the arrow next to the author and source fields to see an iPhone-optimized Wikipedia entry for each.
Also, the Auto Suggest will try to guess the quote you’re about to enter (usually successfully, in my experience) and the app will offer to add any text you have on the clipboard upon launch. That’s handy if you just grabbed something from Safari, an email, etc.
Lickability recently released version 1.3, which adds a new Author and Source completion button and lets you scroll through tags will the on-screen keyboard is up. It’s a super app that’s very well done, and has earned a spot on my iPhone’s home screen. Try it now.
