Microsoft Makes Great IOS Keyboard, Twitter Makes Messaging Easier
Have you ever found yourself constantly scrubbing through a long voice note trying to find the important parts of an interview or a lecture? Noted solves that with hashtags. Basically all you do is start recording on your Apple Watch, and whenever you want to mark the beginning of an important section, you can simply add a hashtag at that point.Then, in the iPhone app, you can tap on those hashtags to skip to the timestamps in the recording when you added the tags, which makes it very easy to find all the important tidbits of a voice note. You can also rename the hashtags to make it easier to understand which section of the recording they refer to, which is also great.Noted is free to download, but offers a pro subscription that removes restrictions around the number of notes you can have, brings support for voice-to-text translation, and lets you export notes as PDFs as well.Download Noted from the App Store (Free)

iOS provides a message-threading capability, which organizes your email based on subject -- you click an icon to the left of a message header to see the related messages. That adds more clicking to go through messages, but makes it easier to find the messages in the first place. You can disable threading if you don't like it.
