    Default [Review] Characount for Notes - A Character Counter for the Notes App


    It seems, nowadays, most great text-based features have character counters of some sort. Unfortunately, Apple’s stock Notes application does not. While a character counter may only be useful for a select few people, it never hurts to have the feature. With a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed Characount for Notes by iOS developer snakeninny, you can see how many characters are present inside the notes you save in the Notes application as illustrated by the screenshots above.

    Character count is expressed with Characount for Notes numerically within parentheses right beside the time when the note was written. As displayed in the example above where the text, “modmyi.com” was used, there are 10 characters in the text, meaning the number 10 was expressed. This would be so for any amount of characters in a note.

    The character counter is separate for all of your notes and does not combine all of your notes into one grand total. This allows you to keep a clear and concise understanding of the amount of characters in your note. Characount for Notes is very nicely integrated right into the Notes application. It barely looks like a tweak put it there, as the integration looks like Apple may have included it themselves – for this, we give the developer an A+ for design. Functionally, the counter is accurate and works as advertised.

    As per the concerns of the user, Characount for Notes does not slow the Notes application down. It requires iOS 5 to be installed and has no options to configure – just install it and start using it. To disable the tweak, simply uninstall it from Cydia. If you think a character counter might be useful to you, then be sure to give it a try since it’s free.

    ...do tweaks like this really need a review? I think it's pretty self-explanatory. With that said, why is it rated 3/5? Not only is it a stupidly simple tweak, but OP only gave it praise.
