DETROIT, Feb. 12, 2013 -- Vectorform, the global design and technology firm that developed Toolbox for Windows 8, the ultimate multitasking productivity app, has released two new tools, Notes and Stopwatch. Notes and Stopwatch join a lineup of eleven productivity tools within Toolbox's growing Tool Depot. With Toolbox, users can view and interact with up to six different tools on-screen at once including Facebook, Web, Calculator, Unit Converter, Voice Notes, Notifier, World Clock, Weather and Doodle.

The ability to take notes was one of the most requested utilities for Windows 8 users. The note-taking tool allows users to create notes and manage multiple sets of notes simultaneously. Notes are synced to the user's Microsoft account, can be accessed across different devices and easily shared to SkyDrive and Mail. In addition to keyboard and touch input, Surface Pro users will be able to utilize the pressure-sensitive pen for a more natural hand-written experience when using Notes. Notes is the first paid tool within Toolbox and is available for purchase from the Toolbox Tool Depot for $1.99.

Stopwatch is an intuitive and easy-to-use free tool that supports split time, pause, resume and more. Users can load up multiple instances of Stopwatch for easy timing of various activities.

Additional Toolbox Features:
Notes, Stopwatch or any other tool can be viewed simultaneously, or in multiple instances of the same tool.
Dock Toolbox into Snap View to complement your primary application with all 11 tools at your fingertips.
Save layout settings across multiple devices and pin customizations into Toolsets for quick and easy access to multiple layouts.

"It usually takes more than one tool to get the job done. On a tablet where space is constrained, productivity doesn't have to be restricted to one activity," said Kevin Foreman, director of product development for Vectorform. "Users now have an indispensable app that is able to keep up with the way they think and work in an organized and clutter-free way. Notes is an essential addition to our Tool Depot and adds greater power to accomplish tasks quickly and simultaneously."

Vectorform will continue to expand the Toolbox Tool Depot with additional premium and free tools to be released this spring.
