by Startacus Admin

Do you remember when taking note of something simply entailed jotting it down on a piece of paper or in a simple old notebook? Of course, whilst this may be still the case for some of us, it’s good to know that these days we have noteother options too, namely thanks to the plethora of excellent note taking apps which exist. Which should you use though? Well, to help you decide, here are our faves - our Top 5 Apps for Note-Taking.

Number one on our list for a very good reason - it deserves to be. Evernote will allow you to take notes, organise them, save them and share them between different devices and between other people. Not only that though, you can also use Evernote to save web pages, files and images and thereby have everything you need to remember all in the one place. With mobile apps available for iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone as well as desktop apps for both Windows and Mac, this is one app that nobody should be without.

This iPad app lets you make typed or handwritten notes using either a stylus or your finger. It also allows you to edit PDFs by adding writing, drawing, text or pictures. In essence Remarks simply lets you view whatever is displayed on screen exactly as a notebook, letting you edit it any way you like. Remarks currently costs £2.99 from iTunes.

If you need a note taking App to sync with your Gmail account, this is one of the best around. Available as both a Web app as well as for iOS and Android, this free app is straightforward and easy to use and the convenience of having your notes synced with your Gmail account is pretty awesome.

Declared by Apple to be the best selling note taking app of 2012, Notability is one which is certainly worth a look. By allowing you to integrate your handwritten or typed notes, annotate PDFs and record notes in whatever way you choose, this iPad app is a delight to use. The fact that it also syncs seamlessly with Dropbox mans it’s pretty darn perfect and at only $1.99 from iTunes, a veritable bargain too!

This is another free app which allows you to take notes easily and organise them and share them across your devices. Once you have created your notes, you can easily share them with others and collaborate on them too - what’s not to love about that ! Catch is currently available for both iOS and Android.
