Some years back I can remember exploring a note-keeping application called Zoho Notebook, that was in its’ infancy. Recently I revisited Zoho Notebook and boy was I in for a surprise. This application rocks and I am now committing myself to moving all of my note-keeping data from other platforms where I have data stored (i.e. Microsoft OneNote, Evernote and Google Keep). The reason for my decision is that Zoho does what all of the other applications do, but better (in my opinion). Zoho Notebook works on nearly all OS platforms and devices out there.
Below is a verbatim (best description) I could find on Zoho Notebook. You can judge for yourself.
- Take notes, add files, create checklists, sketches, record audio, and capture moments. All your notes are instantly synced across your devices and to the cloud.
- The simple, intimate joy of Notebook comes from using the app. We’ve been meticulous in our design, paying attention to every detail. Notebook is 100% free and ad-free.
Notebook provides different ways to take notes and capture your thoughts.
– Write notes. Start with text, add images and sketches, checklists or audio, all in the same note.

– Record ideas, meetings, and lectures with the audio note card.
