I think I'll probably use evernote, will have to look into its features. Would like to be able to take photos of pages then annotate them digitally for notes.

Also does anyone know of any apps/software that can convert a picture of text into a word document? A bit like you can do with scanned documents

Hate one note from Microsoft so I use evernote only.

But in uni I much prefer tsking notes by pen.

Evernote only to remind me what to do

Has the use of a pen and some paper really gone so far out of fashion?

I found it quite easy once you get your head round the nifty features. I have separate notebooks so it doesn't get crowded so one for everyday life: meal planning bills budgets and stuff like that, then i have a university note book sorted by module with links to the word documents that are my module handbooks attached(being able to attach any other office documents is my favourite feature).

I prefer it to word as it is fully searchable, easy to screen clip diagrams in and my dyslexic friendly font looks better in that sort of format, the search function helps with the awful memory too If you re struggling with any feature I guarantee someone will have made a youtube video on how to use it

I still use pen for lecture notes

But note app are stored online. Never lost. Accessible everywhere. Most importantly can store pictures!!! Can draw mind map easily. Can share (if u work in an office sharing memo would be very useful! ). Plus u can search ur notes with search function which you have to go through manually with papers.

Good points! Plus I can see the sense in only having to carry around one thing with you instead of loads of paper and pens.

I'll have to have a look. I'm going to be teaching and it could potentially be ideal for planning units of work for pupils and I think they're sharable too, right? It could definitely work to pull everything together and may save faffing around trying to sort out a website of some sort.

My recommendation is a free iOS app Notescroll. A fast and easy note taking app collects all my ideas and thoughts. Coolest feature of this app is that lets you browse all your notes like iBook, even have table of contents and page number.
