NotePub was created in January of 2008. It was intended to provide micro blogging and note taking services to its users. The site includes many organized tools that allow users to share notes or keep them private. Today, NotePub offers a functional way to take, store and share notes online.
There are many components that make NotePub stand out. The private and public settings allow users to manage many things in one application. Users can share information, media, links and more with a group or they can keep a private to do list or journal. NotePub also uses a drag and drop system which simplifies adding images and other items found online.
The NotePub website is very attractive, yet simple. The logo features a hazy white and grey “NotePub” image that is complimented by a matching wire notebook spiral that runs down the left hand side of the page. As soon as a new user arrives on the NotePub homepage they are greeted by the basics. Users can find contact information, explanations of features and terms of service agreement using the three navigational links across the bottom of the page. The center of the page includes the login area. The rest is open space and the notebook design that makes NotePub look so minimalistic and appealing.
A visitor can register for NotePub by entering in their desired username in the box provided at the center of the homepage. After entering the name and clicking the white and black “Log in” button beside it, a grey box appears asking the user for a password. The user can also choose to remain logged in using the check box just above the password field. As soon as the user has submitted their password, they are given access to NotePub. The process takes seconds and the user is given access to all available features.
NotePub provides users with a helpful service, and does so for free. This is definitely a plus because the site doesn’t offer anything that would really justify a payment. Still, it is quite useful for users who want to find a way to get organized online. The various tools are geared towards the average user, so extensive computer knowledge is not required to master NotePub.
Anyone who wants to get organized and prefers to do it online can try NotePub. The application is simple but offers enough features to make it versatile. The drag and drop system is easy to understand so anyone can begin keeping notes or sharing them on NotePub.
