The internet and subsequent rise of smartphones and cloud storage have revolutionised the act of taking notes. It’s easier than ever to save your thoughts (since we almost always have a connected device within arm’s reach), access them from a variety of other devices, and share them with people who need to know what you’re planning. Instead of losing grocery lists or sudden sparks of creative genius you scribble down on a sticky note and can no longer find, your critical thoughts and must-do lists can live safely in the cloud.
There are plenty of apps out there that can enhance the note-taking experience. I still find myself writing things down with a pen on a notepad, but I’ll enlist the help of Google Keep and even Windows 10’s Sticky Notes app to manage my thoughts. (I find both apps’ cross-device synchronisation to be a massive help.)
In the spirit of finding the best, most efficient and convenient note-taking strategy, we’d love to hear about your most-used notes apps. Are you an Evernote evangelist? A die-hard OneNote user? Maybe you’ve stuck with the tried-and-true simplicity of Notepad all these years. Whatever you thought-jotter of choice is, let us know in the comments below.
