Yes, all these functions are mixed together into one App — — Wiz! It adopts the freemium, for normal user’s normal usage, it’s totally free, but if you want more space and more uploading bandwidth, pay as you go monthly. Like what Evernote do, monthly or yearly subscription.
Wiz has a distinct Drawer Layout, and its article organization looks like OneNote. Though it looks like it has mixed a lot of app design and functions, but after 5 years development, Chinese users were falling in love with it.

Xuncius

Here is why: in Spring and Autumn Period (770 BC- 476 BC), there was a famous philosopher named Xuncius (Xun Zi). A philosopher should has its own thinking and methodology, but Xuncius learned knowledge from many other famous philosopher of the day. In normal thinking, this guy is crazy and dumbed.

The first look at Ci app, a strong feeling of Skeuomorph design style comes to you. The backgound letter picture is nice and any words you typed on the screen are shown in Song Typeface. Song Typeface is a typeface used in Song Dynasty.

Actually, applications built by Chinese abused the usage of Chinese style, but most of them just used some ink and wash style to fake a Chinese style. However, the developer of Ci paid attention to the design. In order to make it more beautiful and original, he bought a very expensive traditional book to learn the letter design. As you downloaded and used it, you would find the texture is carefully controlled to match the Song Typeface.
