8. Vesper: Elegant Notes
Vesper is one of the best all-round note taking apps exclusive to iOS. Its flexibility is its strength; you can organise all manner of notes, ideas, pictures and thoughts into whatever order works for you.
You can fully back up everything, as well as archive old notes so you still have them but aren’t front and centre within the app. It works across iPhone and iPad, so you can have everything synced no matter what device you are using at the time.
Vesper used to cost £7.99/$7.99, but is now available entirely for free, making it even more appealing.
