Short Review of the Jota+ App

31 Aug

Jota+ (the “Jota” is pronounced “Iota”) is a free writing app for your phone. It does code or something too, but I only use it for writing, so that is what I’ll focus on. It has other features that you can download for it that automatically integrate into the app; such as spellcheck and voice write.

The spellcheck worked once or twice for me and now gives an error message (it might work only with the paid update now). When it did work, it spellchecked well enough but you couldn’t make changes while it was working. The voice write works beautifully, though.

Jota+ has a bit of a learning curve because some of its features seem hidden or live along routes that don’t make sense. It saves as .txt files which is convenient for transferring to your computer and opening later in Word or Roughdraft. I haven’t tried that yet, but I’ve done it with other programs, so it should work the same.  Your saved files can be a bit tricky to find, however, when using the “Open” menu. It basically shows you your phone’s files. All of them.

I’m going to buy the full version and test that one soon. I love this program as is, so I think it’s worth the little it cost for extra features—such as Dropbox integration.
