Taking Notes by Tablet I almost never take notes with my iPad. Because I don't have a keyboard attachment, I've used my iPad to take notes when that or my phone were the only options. Contrarty to how using a phone to take notes might look rude or like you're texting, taking notes with a tablet is more visually acceptable but not the easiest thing when you don't have a keyboard.
A couple of my favorite note-taking apps for both the iPhone and iPad however, are Evernote and Notability for a wider range of functionality. Both apps support text, images and audio recordings. Evernote now also has an easy journal app that captures your daily journal entries into Evernote. You type an entry, add your GPS location and upload it. Evernote curates all journal entries of the day into one note. Taking Notes by Laptop When I'm attending internal meetings, usually I reply on my laptop, especially if I know there will be a lot of information to retain. However, one downside of the laptop is that I become easily distracted. You have such easy access to email, the internet and chat services that once a meeting starts to slow down, you find yourself distracted by other things. Taking Notes by Paper Notebook I find that in a working environment, my best bet is actually going back to the trusty print notebook. A medium sized spiral notebook that fits in my bag is handy at lunch meetings and conferences. I even prefer it during in-office meetings because there's nothing to distract me and it's also nice to give my eyes a break from the computer screen. What's your favorite note-taking device?
