Note taking software

Note takingIf you’re like me, you’re much faster at typing than writing with a pen and paper. Here are some great applications to try if you’d like to take notes and organize them on your computer:

  • Google Drive – Create documents, presentations, and spreadsheets for free on your Google account and access them anywhere.
  • Evernote – Create notes and collect your documents in one place. Keep your files in sync over the web so you can access them anywhere.
  • Notational Velocity – Free and basic note taking database. Just search for a note and if it doesn’t exist yet, create it. Makes it easy to organize your notes.
  • OmniOutliner – Simple outlining program for the Mac. It isn’t free ($50-99) but still excellent for basic note taking.
