Best note-taking apps


Think about the number of notes you take on a daily or weekly basis. In everything from listening to podcasts, sitting in meetings, quickly scrawling something on a sticky note so you don’t forget, or taking inventory of the pantry and what you need to grab at the store, let’s face it: we all take a lot of notes.

Thankfully we live in a time when that hassle can be a thing of the past. With so many note-taking apps out there, there’s no need to be scouring the house for those notes anymore.
