Who types text that is lengthy enough to warrant a character counter in the Notes app? That’s the first thing I thought when trying Characount for Notes, and needless to say I’m still pondering the question.

That’s literally all this tweak does. It places a character counter, not a word counter mind you, but a character counter at the top of each note you compose.

Who really needs something like this?

Maybe one could compose 140 character tweets in the Notes app before copying and pasting them directly into a Twitter client…but that would just be really bizarre.

If you’re interested, Characount for Notes can be had for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repo.

You’re not honestly going to try it…are you?

    Might be useful for people who use the Notes app to… ah screw it, it’s useless.

    Actually, a lot of people (mostly teenage girls, like me, mind you) use notes to write stories to post online, so character counting is useful for us.
