John Gruber’s Q Branch Announces Vesper App for iPhone

| Product News

Vesper IconQ Branch announced on Thursday the release of Vesper, a note-taking and thought-organizing app for iPhone. Vesper allows users to take notes and ideas without imposing a specific method for doing so.

You may not have heard of Q Branch before, but you've probably heard of John Gruber, one of the company's founders. Mr. Gruber is best known today for his site Daring Fireball, but he formed Q Branch with Brent Simmons and Dave Wiskus.

The app's release notes:

Vesper is a simple and elegant tool for collecting notes, ideas, things to do — anything you want to remember. Use tags to group related items into playlist-like collections. Vesper imposes no system; organize and curate your notes whatever way comes naturally to you. Eschewing complications, Vesper's focus is on how it feels to use it.

  • Attach photos to notes.
  • Use drag-and-drop to reorder items. Move important ones up, inessential ones down.
  • When you’re done with an item, swipe it to send it into the archive. Out of sight, but remembered forever.

Vesper is priced at US$4.99, and it's available on the App Store now. It works on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, but the company said that it was optimized for iPhone 5 and is not a hybrid app.

In the last two rows it’s written the app works also on iPad, yes it’s true but it isn’t optimized for it. It’s only for iPhone and iPod touch.
