One of the more popular and best reviewed of the apps made especially for Windows 8 and RT has been Toolbox from developer VectorForm. The app combines a number of different "tools" in one location, including Facebook, Web, Calculator, Unit Converter, Voice Notes, Notifier, World Clock, Weather and Doodle. The app lets users interact with six of these "tools" at once, which gets around the limited number of apps that can normally be run at once in the Modern UI. VectorForm said there's been over 460,000 downloads of ToolBox since it went live.
Today VectorForm released a new update for Toolbox that adds two more mini-apps to the mix. One is a simple stopwatch; the other is Notes, which is also the first tool in the app that is an in-app purchase at $1.99. VectorForm states:
The ability to take notes was one of the most requested utilities for Windows 8 users. The note-taking tool allows users to create notes and manage multiple sets of notes simultaneously. Notes are synced to the user’s Microsoft account, can be accessed across different devices and easily shared to SkyDrive and Mail. In addition to keyboard and touch input, Surface Pro users will be able to utilize the pressure-sensitive pen for a more natural hand-written experience when using Notes.
