Today’s Thoughts From Rick:
How many of you use notetaking or note-keeping software applications? I do and I have worked the circuit with these various applications. Right now, I am back to using Microsoft OneNote, after have not used it for years. I never really took to OneNote due I thought it was sort of slow and slow is not in my makeup. My brother recently swayed me to take a look at it again after telling me how he actively uses it in his workplace. I was actively exploring Google Keep, Zoho Notebook, Simplenote, and Standard Notes. My take so far, after about 24 hours of setting up various notebooks, etc… and installing the app on my other devices, I am going in my head, “hmmm… OneNote has progressed to a point that this may just be the chosen one”.
