This component can be used whenever you want the look of yellow lined notepaper. There are several challenges that you need to overcome if you want your notepad’s look to closely resemble the built-in Notes.app.

The latest version comes in a demo to show how to use DTNotePadView in a universal app that runs on iPhone as well as iPad. Don’t waste time trying to put it all together yourself! Rather get the polished component including lifetime personal support from us.


  • Yellow paper looks just like the Notes.app
  • Never-ending lined paper
  • Dynamic rotation to Landscape and Portrait supported
  • Plug in graphics to match your own app’s UI metaphor to customize the look
  • Delegation mechanism to know if the user cancelled or saved the note’s content

All you need is to pass it a text, code is generic to work with any model. Ideal to present in a pop over to make notes on something in your iPad app.


Documentation can be browsed online or installed in your Xcode Organizer via the Atom Feed URL.
