Here is my review of the newly released GoodNotes 5.
Every day in the paperless community, we hear about new technology that promises to make our lives easier and more efficient.
Much of this tech is specifically created to bring efficiency to the classroom and enrich the learning experience.
I constantly talk about note-taking apps on iOS and the iPad Pro, so it was a logical consequence to test the Galaxy Note 9 for my community. Bad idea!
Members of the Paperless Community often ask me what my go-to apps are. Today I’d like to highlight one of my favorites—an app that I use almost every day: Calculator2 by MyScript.
MyScript is the maker of the handwriting app, Nebo. What makes Nebo such a great app is the unique handwriting recognition algorithm it uses. Calculator2 follows in Nebo’s footsteps.
So, how does Microsoft stack up when it comes to note-taking apps? If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I’m not a fan of Microsoft OneNote for a couple of reasons.
First you have to log in to use it. Second, you only have OneDrive to synchronize.
However, the latest update from Microsoft has provided another option for taking notes by hand. Microsoft has added handwriting capability to their Office apps.
The handwriting capabilities of Evernote are very limited. Hence a note-taking app that can sync to Evernote would be really useful. And we are in luck, there are three note-taking apps that can deliver. However, let’s see which one you should pick.
On this website, I talk a lot about note-taking apps and going paperless.
However, apps aren’t the only things I review.
Today I will cover something equally important to your paperless note-taking success. I’m going to talk about the hardware side of note-taking on your iPad Pro or the new iPad 2018.
I will tell you about all of the things I’ve tested, what you really have to look for when you’re choosing hardware for note-taking, and what I’m using to take my notes.
When you visit my website, you’ll notice that I keep a list of my picks for the top three note-taking apps to use with your iPad and Apple Pencil.
For a long time that list has consisted of GoodNotes, Noteshelf 2, and Notes Plus.
But…I’m excited to say that the latest update to Notability has been a complete game changer. This update has skyrocketed Notability into the first place position as my favorite note taking app.
In order to make it onto the list, there were two features I wanted to see inside the Notability app. For a while now, users of Notability have been sending their feedback for suggested improvements, and it looks like the developers were listening.
The following 2 updates were the changes I felt that Notability needed to take it to the top.
Plastics play a huge part in modern life. Without plastics, we wouldn’t have the technologies, innovations, or comforts that we enjoy and benefit from.
Plastics are a major part of our electronic devices too. If we didn’t have plastic for cases and components, our tablets, phones, and computers would be made completely from metals, leaving us with tech that would be impractical, heavy, and prone to overheating.
Plastics are versatile, inexpensive, lightweight, strong, durable, and corrosion-resistant. They have high thermal and electrical insulation properties, making them perfect for our modern-day gadgets.
Because plastics are so versatile, they can be used to make a variety of products that save energy, help advance technology, and improve the lives of people around the world.
As you know, the #PaperlessMovement is all about going paperless, paperless note-taking and productivity. Today I think it is time to talk a little bit more about the hardware side of note-taking. I will tell you my personal opinion about those alternative styluses that are offered by Wacom and Adonit you can buy instead of an Apple Pencil. I tested them for 6 months and came to a brutally honest conclusion.
