I was not prepared to takes notes. I hadn't brought pen and paper with me. Oops. So I started using my phone's note pad app. It worked okay, but it's not quite the same as when I take hand written notes. I colour code them using multiple pens, use arrows or doodle. There is just more freedom with hand written notes.
But there is also a problem with taking hand written notes at meetings or webinars. Those notes tends to spread out. Later on, when I want to review my notes on Lease Option for say (which I was trying to do this past week) It was very hard to find the right set of loose paper or notebook that held my notes. In fact I never did find them.
This is where Penultimate comes in. In this app you will have a virtual notebook that you can title to what ever you would like. So the title of the course you are taking, the date and name of group of a meeting you are attending, etc. You can create as many notebooks as you wish. Once you tap on the notebook you wish to work on, it opens and shows either lined paper, or graph paper or which ever type of paper you have selected. A few different choice are free with this app but if you wish, you can purchase additional paper kits that may better suit your needs like music paper maybe. You can also select the "pen" colour you wish to use as well as the width of the line. There is also an undo/redo button and an eraser. Obviously this app would be better suited for a larger device like the iPad and should be used with a stylus.
This is an app that coordinates with the Evernote app I mentioned in my last weeks post. With Penultimate I can keep my virtual notebook all available on that app as well as on Evernote. Which means at a later date I can access those notes from any device (phone, iPad, Computer) that is connected to my Evernote account. Can you see the possibilities? If I had been using this app for the courses and meeting I have attended, I would know exactly where my notes on lease option would be.
This is an amazing app that I think you should add to your collection of real estate tools as well as everyday life.
