How do you keep notes?

Are you using an extra app for a note-taking purpose, or directly using the phone's own app. Is there a specific reason for that?

I am building a note taking app. To be frank, so far I have been using whatsapp's blocked contacts for posting own notes

@kdrnp hahaha. An alternative (if no blocked contacts): Make a group with somebody and remove them/ Then that is gonna be your kingdom.

As for me I am an old school person - I make notes on paper with a pencil. To make it less waste solution I use already used paper, eg. test prints. If I am out of paper or my notes / to do list must be send later to show progress of my work I make notes in most simple tool I can get in my operating system or directly in software I am about to use to report my job. For my private life I use paper calendar to make notes and to do lists.

@jan_mazurek You've explained all the steps to note-taking, Jan, thanks. Obviously, even if you use used paper, the paper should not be used, in my opinion. But I also can't stop myself from using paper completely.

@jan_mazurek @kdrnp Got to say, there is something so great about taking notes by hand. Even with all the bajillion tools out there, nothing beats having a by-hand checklist of things to do (and the feeling of crossing each of them out)

@kdrnp @sach_r35 most important here is fack I write / draw by hand, not point chars at keyboard (screen or classic PC one) It makes me to remeber that

@jan_mazurek Well, if they're temporary notes that you don't wanna save/archive physically for later, you could use a whiteboard or something like Rocketbook, and archive digitally.

@isaac_hernandez1 I don't think Notion is the right app for taking quick notes, you click too much.

@kdrnp - true. Notion is bit messy when it comes about to make lists

@isaac_hernandez1 I also use Notion. I love the app because of the variations of widgets. But sometimes it's too slow. I used to use the desktop app but it crashed , so now I am using the website. Do you know any alternative to notion , as good as it?

Used to use the Notes app for mac because it was simple & quick. Moved to OneNote because I like how you can start writing anywhere but don't need most of the other features and find it slow to paste into sometimes so may end up back with Notes.

I use Nimbus Note. Used to use Evernote but their lack of innovation and basic stability issues caused me to move after years of usage. Have been on Nimbus Note for a few months now and loving it.

I use Notes app for iPhone and Mac. It is synchronized and you may separate your personal and work notes. I find it very useful!

I use Roam Research for most of my notes. If I want to jot something down but I'm on the go, I still use Apple's Notes app.
