Re: [App] Quill - handwritten notes (v7)

Volker -- this is the best writing app ever!  It's a perfect example of the sort of "killer app" necessary to make my TPT a permanent appendage!  Thank you for writing it!

 

I would like to add another wishlist vote for ability to lasso an area and then cut/drag/paste its content.  Having the ability to visually reorganize notes after i've written them would make them even more useful to me!

 You should be able to use the screen rotation lock button built into the TPT, does this not work?

With screen locked i think the icons remain at the same place (and also they are not horizontal), so it is not a perfect solution.

Re: [App] Quill - handwritten notes (v7)

hallo Volker1, I have used your Quill app since the first day of my TPT. It's so great to see how your app improved with the community. I wann ask you bout some litte features:

- pen cursor : a litte dot on the screen for better positioning while writing. you know that TPT's tip is big and it's difficult to edit something without the cursor. Adobe Photoshop Touch have a cursor too, and it quite convenient for drawing or writing.

- new page shortcut: while taking a long note, it will be more efficient if you have a "new page" Icon on the toolbar, instead of go to Settings/Pages/Insert

- Tags management with remove function.

hope it helps. Thank you again Volker, we salute you Smiley Very Happy

The following is not implemented yet but definitely on my roadmap:

  • Background image
  • Reorganize pages
  • Sync with evernote
  • Quick menu similar to cvburg's mod

Thx a lot Volker! Is there some possibility to donate ? maybe if not to you, then to a non profit organisation you like.

 

edit:

Send to evernote seems to be already in:

@Volker1 and @all

 

Is there already an user guide for Quill available?

 

Or could a Wiki be used for a user guide made by "old" users who know Quill already?

Excellent idea! For example, see this donations infographic: Charitable organizations are hit by the recession like everybody else. But disasters, hunger, and diseases do not stop. So please, if you want to donate then do so as soon as possible!

 

As Quill users are scattered around the globe I don't want to pick any one organization

 

To do my part, I will donate the proceeds from all Quill sales from now until Xmas to the American Red Cross.

Its about time that we get one Smiley Wink I just started some outlines on the google code wiki.

 

  • Wiki is at http://code.google.com/p/android-quill/wiki/Manual
  • You need to be registered to edit. Email or pm me your google account name and I'll add you to the users that can edit the wiki.
  • Once its in a presentable shape, I'll add a "Help" button to the menu in Quill

 At least this point is already implemented: If you press "Next" and you are on the last page, a new page is added automatically.

Betreff: [App] Quill - handwritten notes (v7)

two questions :

- can quill export specific notebook to Evernote or sdcard ? since I have one notebook so far, I dont know whats the result of "exporting all notes ..."

- is there any way for quill to recognize that which pages from notebook #1 (for example) has been exported so far therefore for next time exports rest of it not the whole notes ?
