What are your favorite tools for organizing notes and quotes?

Ideally I'd like something where I can tag each quote/note to more easily find them. Also ideally I'd be able to quickly add notes from both my laptop and phone.

    I'm using taskade for To-do list, but I also use it for Notes. That way I can see what I have to do but I can also take notes everywhere because it's a website, an extension for chrome and mozilla, but also a software and an Android and iOS app. That way all my notes are share betwenn all this stuff, and if I want I can invite people I want.

    Realtime spreadsheet-database hybrid

    For taking notes, there are a variety of apps such as Google Keep, Evernote and so on. But for quotes and book notes I've recently started using Airable and I'm really happy with it for now 😅. I can create "items" for my books, authors, topics and so on, that I can use to link the quotes to. This, together with the ordinary search bar is, in my opinion, a good solution for organizing small to medium ideas and quotes. P.S. 📖For offline reading, I also use a quick hack: I take a picture of the page I want to remember, I use Google Keep's OCR to extract the text, and then copy it right into AirTable. Hope it helps :D
    It's a hybrid spreadsheet and one of best could base platform to record and organize your notes. I have been using it in to manage the task of my teammates.
    I think so far, Airtable defeats traditional other spreadsheets apps out there. Even better, it's my powerful tool among other note taking apps. Simple tool to organize everything on the go. Really recommended.

    I vote Notion here. It's super easy to quickly take notes and there are many templates for you to use to quickly organize a doc in whatever way you want. The desktop client and the mobile app are both very user-friendly and the "Quick Search" feature makes everything easy to find.

    It works great as a collaborative note-taking tool, but it's much more than that. For our team it fully replaced Google Docs, Trello, and Confluence.

    "Evernote helps you capture and prioritise ideas, projects, and to-do lists, so nothing falls through the cracks." I've been using it for personal and professional use at home and office both, for a few years now. It has made me keep a track of all my notes and tasks, right there on my desktop and mobile home screens. Definitely recommended! :)
    It is very much organized and I find it quite helpful in keeping my notes synchronized through my phone ,laptop.

    Evernote automatically synchronizes your content across multiple devices, allowing you to access it from any phone, tablet or PC. The service's premium tier offers even more features, such as offline access to notes/notebooks and PDF annotations.

    Great tool for sharing and managing knowledge within teams
  10. Apart from Airtable which I've already recommended above, I'd also like to recommend OneNote, one simple note taking app for all purposes. We can do a lot of things from a OneNote canvas, from taking regular notes, create some to-do lists, organizing notes based on tags/categories, etc. Does anyone know it is free to use both on desktop, tablet, and mobile phones? Yes it is.

    Super lightweight, flexible and searchable. Plus the content shares elsewhere nicely. I am a fan of the basic Windows Notepad, and Keep has a notepad-like feel to it at a basic level. I love it.
    Google Keep plus a markdown extension = a digital index card box.

    I am part of the product team but I have been looking for an app to do this for years! Of course we use JIRA and Confluence but we also now use Twasme to organise screenshots will associated note and documents. It allows you to create unlimited collections and then create unlimited entries inside each collection. An entry can be simply a note or it can have attachments. you can also add custom values to each entry to store credentials or scores or just about anything. The team are keen to see how people react to the product and will listen to any feature requests. At the moment anyone signing up for the live product before the end of January receives a free lifetime subscription.

    Just create a group, invite a friend and kick them out again – voilà! You basically have the personal version of a Slackbot, and also without any additional functionality, but pssst! I like this solution because it's super fast to boot on a phone (vs. Slackbot), integrated into your everyday life, allows you to pin the chat and serves as the perfect braindump, you can also enrich it with voice messages, photos etc.

    Google Keep helps me and my colleagues by taking daily notes, ideas, voice notes, links, etc, for new work projects and so we do not forget any important details. Google Keep is like an extension of our minds but with many more intelligent functions, where human capacity fails, applications like these help us improve our work performance.

    Weava is a Chrome extension that allows you to highlight any only article and PDF and organize them into folders to fit your research structure. You can also clip images, take notes and annotations, and create citations (if you're using it for college papers). Great research organizational tool.
