Bundled Notes takes the simplicity of basic note-taking apps like Google Keep, and merges it with the feature richness of other powerful third-party apps. It has a unique tagging and organisation system, a beautiful markdown editor, dark mode, sort and layout options, kanban boards, and much, much more.

Have you ever tried to use your Chromebook for note-taking with a stylus? Some devices are more suited to the task than others…Chrome Unboxed
My Notes is a Chrome based browser extension that turns the new tab page into a powerful note taking and note keeping app. After reading the review about “My Notes” (follow source link reflected below) I decided to give it a try and found it is everything the reviewer touted it to be.
No login required… Just Start Typing! Take your notes and never lose them again.
Your text is auto-saved to the cloud as you type it. It is only deleted after 3 months of inactivity.
A HIERARCHICALLY ORGANIZED NOTE TAKING APPLICATION… Secure, simple and FREE! The security and confidentiality of your data is the primary concern.
TreeNoote is available free for Windows and is under development for iOS, Android, MacOS, Linux.
Keep an eye on this one. If you are into note keeping and/or note taking, Joplin gives you full control of your data. The notes are searchable, can be copied, tagged and modified with your own text editor. You can import notes from Evernote with formatting, resources and metadata retained. You can synchronize with Microsoft OneDrive or locally.

“Notes for Google Drive” is a “must have” Chromium-based (Chrome, Edge, Vivaldi, Brave, etc…) browser extension that allows you to quickly (and easily) create notes that automatically are saved to your Google Drive account.
Plain-text file markdown note taking with Nextcloud integration… A good way to get your notes out of the cloud. Cross platform installation. Portable app on Windows…
I have been exploring the various note keeping applications (Google Keep, Zoho Notebook, Simplenote, and Standard Notes ) and thought I had settled on Microsoft OneNote; then, the light bulb went off. Back in August 2019, I had posted an article I had composed titled, “Quick Tip: How To Turn A Gmail Account Into A Powerful Note-Taking And Note-Keeping App“. Folks, what I posted in that article about using a separate Gmail account (from your normal email account) as a note-keeping and note-taking app really does work.
The key is: Use this separate account for note and document storage only; not for email. The most important thing in doing this is to use the tagging feature in Gmail to categorize your notes (see screenshot below). You can let your imagination fly by using all the powerful features associated with Gmail (especially the search function). In the end, I created a cross-platform note-keeping and note-taking app that works hand in hand with all the Google services, on all device platforms, with 15GB of storage; ALL, for FREE. I even prettied up my creation with a theme (that is an option that is built into the Gmail platform). The real beauty is that I can send anything to this Gmail note-keeping account from my phone, my browser and from my main email; then, organize the content accordingly.

The past several days I have been exploring the various note keeping applications and thought I had settled on Microsoft OneNote; then, the light bulb went off. Back in August, I had posted an article I had composed titled, “Quick Tip: How To Turn A Gmail Account Into A Powerful Note-Taking And Note-Keeping App“.

In the end, I created a cross-platform note-keeping and note-taking app that works hand in hand with all the Google services, with 15GB of storage; ALL, for FREE. I even prettied up my creation with a theme (that is already built into the Gmail platform). The real beauty is that I can send anything to this Gmail note-keeping account from my phone, my browser and from my main email.

‘What’s On My PC‘
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.
– Add PDFs, word documents, spreadsheets, and more with the dedicated file note card.
– Create and mark checklists to get stuff done with the dedicated checklist note card.
– Record ideas, meetings, and lectures with the audio note card.
– Capture moments using the dedicated photo note card.
– Sketch ideas and take hand written notes using your finger with the sketch note card.
Content added to Notebook gets intelligently formatted into beautiful, distinct cards.
– Recipe Card automatically pulls the recipe photo and description, creates a checklist for ingredients, and provides step-by-step cooking instructions. See zoho.com/notebook for supported sites.
– Video Card automatically pulls video preview and, once opened, plays in a distraction-free space. Works for YouTube and Vimeo.
– Link Card pulls headline or page title, along with the main image, creating a beautiful note card.
– You can organize various notes into notebooks.
– Notes can be grouped together.
– You can reorder your notes within a notebook.
– Move or copy note cards between notebooks.
– Synchronize all your notes and notebooks across devices and to the cloud.
– Take a note on one device, add to it from another.
– Change the color of your note cards.
– Choose a notebook cover or create your own.
– Lock individual notebooks and notes
– Search your notes within a notebook or across notebooks.
– Share your notes through email and other options.
