Microsoft got it Right—Handwriting in Word and Excel with Apple Pencil on iPad (Pro) 2018

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.

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.

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.
