Hi guys,

I wrote this app to attach an arbitrary note to a location. It works by letting you know when you're close to a note that you made.
It's got inbuilt routing, proximity alerts and much more. Let me know what you think.

1. Press the plus sign to add a note
2. Type it in
3. Now you have a choice of:
A. Press save and the note is saved without a location.
If you chose to save the note, you'll land on the notes list.
B. Press the map icon in the top right to add a location.
If you pressed the map button you'll land on the map page.
- Press the location reticle top right to locate yourself
or
- Type an address and press Go2Address

4. Now press Attach2Note and you'll land on the note page.
5. Tap save to confirm and your done!!

I hope the UI is not confusing to navigate. I was worried it maybe, although after a bit of use I find it like a pattern to use. Something like this to make a note for my location:

3 x touch top right
touch Attach2Note
type note
touch save, all done.

Ok, now it makes sense. The one thing I would add is clicking on a stored note would bring up the Navigation app so you can get driving directions without having to type.

It will be available in the next release.

At this time there isn't. Although it would not be too hard to implement. My only concern is where to fit it into the UI. Maybe I could add another button into the 2Note screen to pick a contact and that would add their address. I could also add another option to the Go2 map screen to do that. If I did it there, the map could be used to display the location, then you would just attach2note it would do what you're looking for.

I'm currently writing my end of semester university exams and will have more time to work on the app toward the end of next week.

Thumbs up
New version released is a major update.

I added a new feature to edit a note so now you can change it and even add a different location to it or remove it's current one. Next up is to implement an option to choose between imperial and metric units.
