I briefly talked about note taking in a previous post.
I love OneNote, it’s basically my go-to app for every aspect of my life. Having Cerebral Palsy, note taking is very limited, and for somebody like me, who has reduced hand functions, it’s nearly impossible.
One of the features that I absolutely love is OneNote has it tabs inside notebooks so I can group notes of a similar subject together, for example, I pre-type all my blog material In a notebook suitably called Blogging.
The things that sets OneNote apart from other apps are:
- Syncs entirely – I can start something on my MacBook and be able to complete it on my iPad.
- Simple to use and a clear interface. I can capture ideas, organise notes and manage notebooks quickly and easily.
- Personalise your note-taking experience. Colour code notebooks and tabs, just like traditional note taking.
I just wish that not only OneNote, but the iPad itself had been around much earlier because my school life (class) would have been much different. I will talk more about this in a future post.
OneNote has improved my productivity and efficiency, as well as changed the way I work. No longer do I have to rely on somebody to “be my hands” or have to open a blank Word document to just jot down an idea. Not to mention that I don’t have to wait until I get home or near a computer to let my creative thoughts flow.
Above all, I’m enjoying OneNote and discovering how I can apply it to many different situations. I’ve even started a Pinterest board about OneNote, which you can follow here.
