Lazy Productions is a fittingly apt name for the developers of Oooloo. If you have bad personal organization skills or need something to record your memos but want to save yourself the hassle of going through dozens of notes and free yourself from clutter, this is definitely the app for you.
Essentially an upgraded version of the built-in “Notes” application, Oooloo not only allows you to jot down quick notes, but also gives you the added convenience of adding images into your memos. It took me quite some time to get used to the many little features in the app, not very necessary but nonetheless proved to be very useful.
Oooloo gave me a great impression of it right from the very beginning. With it’s clutter-free user interface, everything bit of your information is presented to you without becoming an eyesore. Folders allow you to sort out all your bits and pieces and these folders can be further organized themselves through dividers. All this can be done with just a few simple swipes and taps. The developers did a great job with their choice of colors too, for the app doesn’t have certain corners sticking out like a sore thumb, and everything is seamlessly integrated into each other.
Folders include the default “To Do”, “Contacts”, “Calendar”, “Notes”, “Images”, and even a sharing folder where you can share your documents with other users of the app. Not a necessity but definitely good to have. You can add your own folders, and customize them with by selecting from a plethora of icons. You can then mark your notes within the folders in order of importance, through the colored blips available at the side.
One thing I don’t like about the app though is that while you have different categories such as a to-do list and a contacts tab, everything you put inside is more or less the same. They are just basic notes where you can jot down bits of information, no matter the choice of category you put them in. Of course, one can argue that this gives a wider array of options at your fingertips.
All in all I would say that this is definitely a great app to have. As a free app, it allows you to store a maximum of 30 notes. However, you might want to upgrade to the premium version with no limits at all.
- Well Organized, no clutter.
- Simple to use and understand.
- Useful to get your tasks sorted out.
- Not much variety on types of notes.
- 30 note limit (removable with in-app purchase)
