My Personal Note Taking Apps


I would like to introduce FIVE note-taking apps that I am very comfortable using already or I am exploring now. I will give my recommendation reasons, best applications, and at the end ONE picture of each note-taking app that represents the best feature they have!

I choose a note-taking app based on its best feature that helps me think and handle specific topics.

Hope there is will one or several that you would like to use to assist your thinking.
