Must Have Accessories For Apple Pencil and iPad Pro 2017

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.

Is Notability Finally the Best Note-Taking App?

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.

Do Plastics Have a Place in the Clean-Energy Future?

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.

Apple Pencil and iPad Pro

Stylus Alternatives for Apple Pencil

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.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Notes Plus

Here I will show you 10 hidden features in Notes Plus you might didn’t know they even exist. Notes Plus has so much to offer, that it might be overwhelming for some of you to get the hang of it. However, there are even more features than you might found at the first look. In my text here, there are even more things than I actually covered in the video, so it is worth to read this too. If you have any questions or if you know any features that I did not include, just let me know in the forum! You will help us, the paperless community, to grow even faster!

Meeting with Laptops

Don´t Make This Etiquette Mistake At Your Next Business Meeting

As tech gets better, laptops seem to get smaller, lighter, and faster. This makes it easier than ever to bring one along to a business meeting to take notes. But are they welcome?

The general consensus in company culture is, no.

A quick online search will bring up articles and debates about proper note taking etiquette in business meetings. And the etiquette guides say laptops in meetings are a no-go.

Integration

There’s No ALL-IN-ONE App. Here’s How You Can Fix That.

The more we rely on our computers, tablets, and phones to communicate, do our work, and collaborate with others, the more we see areas where we could use a good app.

Apps help us solve problems in our work and daily lives by focusing on a specific function, and doing it exceptionally well.

An app like a ToDoist or Things 3, which both are all-around scheduling and task management tools, can help you keep all of your projects and appointments neatly organized. It’s just two examples of the many highly useful apps people download and use every day to make going paperless easy.

Apps are cloud compatible, cost-effective, portable, and easy to sync across all of your devices.
And as more and more business apps become available, you’ll find that you want to use more than one to organize and manage your workflow.

Children Play Tablet

Thousands of ANDROID Apps Collecting Data on Kids

In the tech world privacy is an issue that’s always on our minds. From a general concern about what info companies gather and how they use it, to the recent Facebook data-collection scandal, the issue of privacy is something we’ll continue to wrestle with for years to come.

As adults, we expect to be fighting this battle over our personal information, but when it comes to the privacy of our children there is no gray area where the law is concerned.

Google Photos: Are Your Images Safe?

Remember the days of film cameras? If you wanted to take professional quality pictures you needed to lug around a heavy camera with the biggest, most expensive, lense. Then you carefully set up your shot and blindly snapped your pictures.

The you had to wait for the film to be developed before you could see if your effort paid off in a photo to remember or one for the trash can.

Today, we each have a top-of-the-line camera right inside our phone. The resolution is great, you have zoom and lighting features, and you don’t have to wait for film to be developed to see how your pictures turned out.

With a camera always at our fingertips, we have gone photo crazy. Snapping pictures of our cat, the food we ordered from the food truck, and our kiddies in the bubble bath.
