Dropbox’s Online Note-Taking Service Enters Beta
A few weeks back, some sites chanced upon Project Composer, an Evernote-esque note-taking tool Dropbox was testing silently. Curious as to what the fuss was all about, many flocked to the limited-access service, only to be turned away at the gates. While entry is still restricted, you can at least request an invite now.
Now called Dropbox Notes, the collaborative note-taking tool has entered beta. Details are thin at this point in time, but judging by its official page, Notes appears to be aimed at businesses and not consumer — at least for now.
The page requests that those interested in joining the invite-only beta furnish their name, e-mail address and company name, and then wait until “an early version is ready for you.” There are no details, save for a screenshot showing some fairly basic collaborative note-taking capabilities.
Notes is being seen as the fruit of Dropbox’s acquisition of HackPad about two years ago. It is quite interesting, however, that HackPad’s online collaborative notes service continues to be available to both new and existing users. Perhaps that will change once Notes has exited beta.
