Features to Seek Out in a Note-Taking Application

Features to Seek Out in a Note-Taking Application

If you’re the one in your office known for taking spectacularly detailed notes, then you’ll find no greater productivity tool than a note-taking app. There are dozens of options on the market today that can help you make the most of your note-taking experience, as well as the integrations that they can provide.

What is a Note-Taking App?

A note-taking application is any lightweight app that gives users the ability to take notes on a mobile device or workstation in the absence of a pen or paper. They are particularly helpful for those who might litter their workstation with countless notebooks or sticky notes with important information jotted down on them. These applications have been developed with the intention of replacing these inconveniences, but whether or not you’ll get value out of them will depend on the individual.

This isn’t just some watered-down version of Microsoft Notepad; it’s a full-fledged application to help you stay organized. Modern note-taking apps have plenty of familiar features and similar functionality, like typing, drawing, or capturing notes, all with the ability to organize and track your thoughts, documents, personal notes, and pictures. Some even offer voice integration to dictate notes in real time.

The applications themselves are designed so you can keep yourself organized while providing a robust array of features. More applications will save the files directly to the hard drive, but these apps also offer cloud syncing so you’re never out of luck when accessing a file on whichever device you would prefer to use.

Where Do You Get Them?

There are so many different types of note-taking apps out there, all from a variety of developers. The most popular are Evernote, Microsoft OneNote, Dropbox Paper, Apple Notes, and Google Keep. You can acquire these applications by downloading them from the various app stores for your device. Most of them are free to download, but certain functionality might be locked behind paid services for either the individual app or as part of a productivity suite. OneNote is a part of the Microsoft Office 365 suite, for example.

If you are ready to change the way you take notes for the better, JensenIT can help. To learn more, reach out to us at (847) 803-0044.
