NoteMoz was founded in 2006 to provide users with an all-encompassing way to monitor websites, servers and website applications. The application belongs to the Zoho collection of web based applications. Although NoteMoz deviates from other Zoho products, it maintains the same goal of providing convenient webs services for individuals and businesses.
It is difficult to make the claim that NoteMoz is completely unique. The application serves a helpful purpose, however it is one that can be served by many other applications. The user can save notes, links, ideas and resources in one place and share them easily. Compared to many other note taking applications, NoteMoz may even seem a bit bland when it comes to originality.
NoteMoz takes the safe route with a blue and white color scheme, contrasted by the occasional splash of green. The application is very neat and organized. The user never encounters clutter whether they are visiting the homepage, accessing their account or working with the note management tools included in the application. The experience is overall positive, although it leaves the user wanting in some areas.
New users can create a NoteMoz account by clicking the green and white “Sign Up for Free” button found along the right hand side of the homepage. The form boasts a ten second sign up, and seems to make good on that promise. The registration form includes just two fields: one for a username and one for an email address. After submitting the form, the user is advised that their information must be reviewed by a site administrator. After approval, the user will receive an email address with registration completion instructions.
NoteMoz welcomes all new users to sign up for a free premium account. This opportunity is limited to the first 1,000 users approved. Users can recommend others to join as well. The site is currently only open to the first 10,000 users registered. Although there are hints that a paid membership option will be added, the site does not actually list the subscription fee or what will be included. For now, the user must be approved before the user limit is reached.
NoteMoz.com could be interesting for anyone who needs a simple, effective way to take and store notes. The sharing features are a nice bonus that allows users to share items or work with a team or group. The user can embed notes, pass them along and drag and drop them any way they like. It is really annoying that people have to wait for approval by the site administrator to use this kind of service.
