22 Tech-Savvy Ways to Take Notes

From Notebook-Mimicking Apps to Digital Note-Taking

— September 6, 2014 — Tech
Seeing as it's September already and the back-to-school season has come back into full swing, it's interesting to see the various ways to take notes that are on the market. Yes, there are the quintessential notebooks to help get the job done but there are also modern innovations like pens that will track your words and digitize them and even scanners to pick out the small points from the text.

As we see the continued evolution of student life to being increasingly based on digital solutions, it's easy to see that we're going to continue looking for quicker ways to take notes. What's clear is that the physical feeling of writing in a notebook is indeed satisfying, but the modern student is looking to type rather than write for maximum efficiency.
