I was kinda fed up with the Notes application on my iPad. We can all agree upon it that it looks disgusting. The way it functions is what you would expect from it, but Apple did a terrible job at designing the UI. While they started to allow you to choose between 3 (also disgusting) fonts, the whole thing still looks like it comes out of the pockets of businessmen with bad taste who only get turned on by leather.
Since i like black and white, monospace fonts and microsoft's Notepad, i decided to write a simple web app in html5 that i could attach to my homescreen. You can see the app here. Well, you'll only see an empty textarea, but try to fill it up and refresh the page. You'll notice that the text is still there. The text is saved in localStorage. To make the thing work even when you are offline i used a cache manifest, which is included in the zip with source. You may use it with your own juicy fonts.
