On Taking Notes Permalink: On Taking Notes Bookmark Icon

Last week Matthias wrote about the importance of writing down ideas immediately. I have to agree, the best way to being able to remember something, is to write it down right away. I have had many thoughts and ideas floating around, but oftentimes when I don’t write them down, I can’t remember or recall them later.

In a follow-up post Matthias now writes about the “The Single Best Way to Take Notes”, why it is important to do so and what he uses himself to write things down. The article also contains a list of apps that came out of a Twitter survey, with responses on which apps other people use.

I personally use iAWriter for most of the things I want to write down. I like it, because I think the writing experience is very good, there’s an app for macOS and iOS available and both of them sync via iCloud. This way I can always have access to my most recent (or any other) files and I can continue writing, so then one day they will turn into something more complete or thought out. Or get deleted.
