I'm doing some research on a potential new venture and would appreciate some recommendations on what tool to use to file/record the research on different topics. It would need to be flexible enough to be able to easily organise them, edit, brain map, maybe share with a team. Think Trello + MindNod + EverNote, but more intuitive interface. Cheers
- With it's continuous feature development, I can't find a better solution: You get web annotations AS you clip browser content.. AND, you can even clip web content and add it to notes on Android and iOS. Once your content enters a new @evernote note.. you can connect services like Zapier and IFTTT to trigger the consumption of your new notes across other cloud-platforms. This means once you save it, you can have a pipeline setup. Not only this, but with instant offline capabilities.. AND all the other features that I haven't mentioned, @evernote Web Clipper makes the most of Online Browser-Based research in my opinion. The free version of @evernote has the sharing feature too.
- I find a lot of my work involves writing down and collecting visual stories. This means I jot down and draw a lot while conducting app research, especially when first conceiving the UI-UX elements, things start on paper for me. If you research is very visual-focused and you need a quick way to get hand-made notes/drawings/diagrams into @evernote, you can get the Spark by @wacom to email PDF versions of notes to an @evernote-connected-email, this means as soon as @evernote gets the digital-version of your hand-made work it will produce a new note in-app and cloud-sync it right away. This feature is crucial for me because I handle client life-cycle within @evernote, so delivering visual notes is important.. and the email-to-evernote feature really creates efficiency.
