Moleskine, maker of the well known notepads, has released its first official app free for the iPad and the iPhone.
At first glance, it has a lot of features. You can type or scribble notes in four sizes and 15 colors. You can also embed images, attach geotags, and share the note online.
To be honest, I don’t really see anything special about this app other than the name-dropping value. It took me some time to figure out how to figure out how to type and scribble. Also, the drawing features aren’t all that impressive; the lines don’t curve smoothly and you’re limited to only four-line thicknesses. The eraser also functions poorly; it’s difficult to erase a large sketch gone wrong. I also don’t see a way to either print a note or import content from outside the app.
