[Review] NoteMe - A Nice-Looking Notification Center Notepad
If you’re one of those people who find it too cumbersome to open your Notes application from your home screen, then maybe you will appreciate being able to take notes from Notification Center. We’ve seen functionality like this before with the recent MemoCenter for Notification Center
widget, but to be honest it doesn’t look half as nice as what we’re about to show you. This new free note-taking jailbreak widget is dubbed NoteMe for Notification Center

Right off the bat, you see it and think, “That doesn’t look like a Notification Center widget.” You would be right – it looks more like something we would see from Siri’s interface, however when something looks as good as this notepad and
it is free, can you really critique it? The answer is yes!
The text that you type into the NoteMe widget is very bold and easy to read. I like the color choice that was put into designing the notepad and the text that is written onto it. The notepad itself also features the same torn-paper appearance as Apple's Notes application. Just as you would expect, tapping on the notepad brings up the iOS keyboard so you can record a note and then tapping on the blue ‘Done’ button where you would expect to see the return button will close the keyboard. There doesn’t appear to be a character limit for the NoteMe widget.
Regrettably, you cannot use Apple’s select, copy, or paste functions from the NoteMe widget. This makes getting text in and out of there pretty difficult, forcing you to type it out each time whether it's long or short. For any notepad – even a widget, I would expect simple copy and paste functions.
You can enable and disable the NoteMe widget any time that you wish through the Settings application in the Notifications section. From there you can drag NoteMe in and out of Notification Center or place it in the top shelf if you are an IntelliScreenX user. NoteMe is completely compatible with IntelliScreenX and with other widgets, the only oddity being you must be prepared to see a widget that doesn’t really look like an iOS widget at all. To install NoteMe, you must be an iOS 5 user.
