Today, Juicy Bits, maker of three App Store Best of the Year award winners and two Editors’ Choice apps, released WhereNotes for iPhone and Apple Watch. WhereNotes makes it easy for users to remember photos, text, and audio recordings for a specific location and quickly recall those items when they return. It’s like having a private notebook at each place they visit.

“I discovered that a lot of my friends—like me—take photos to remember specific products or favorite meals,” says Mike Swanson, Founder of Juicy Bits. “When returning to a location, they find themselves scrolling through hundreds of photos in their photo gallery, often giving up in frustration. WhereNotes was created to make it easy for users to remember important photos, text, and audio and to associate those items with a specific location. Because WhereNotes works with the Apple Watch, notes are quickly accessible from a user’s wrist.”

In addition to photos, users can add text (for example, to remember important names), audio recordings, checkboxes (to mark something as “checked”), and counters (to keep a count of visits, uses, redemptions, etc.).

While all data is kept private, users can choose to share specific attachments or entire notes. This makes it easy to send, for example, a set of items that are typically bought at a favorite grocery store. When the recipient opens the shared note in WhereNotes, it will automatically appear at the top of the list when near the store. On Apple Watch, they can easily swipe to see all items on the list.

A pinning feature is available to lock frequently-used notes to the top of the list so they are always available.

Other features includes the ability to receive an alert when arriving at a specific place, travel directions to a place, and backup and restore of all data.

Pricing and Availability:

WhereNotes is currently available for free on the App Store. A single “Unlock Everything” in-app purchase for $4.99 USD enables all premium features. WhereNotes runs on Apple Watch (with compatible iPhone) and iPhone 4s (or later) with iOS 8.0 (or later).

Founded in 2009, Juicy Bits is a small company that produces unique, freshly squeezed software for mobile devices.

Halftone 2, an Apple Editors’ Choice, was also selected for the App Store Best of 2013.
