Take & Sync Notes Across Windows, Mac & iOS via Dropbox With Notebooks

Every once in a while, a new service comes forth and claims to be unique, productive or an improvement over what’s already available in the market.

Fetchnotes: Note-Taking With Twitter-Like Inline Hashtags; Now On Android, iOS & Web

Despite not being an avid Twitter user, I love a few things about the micro-blogging service. For instance, the way in which Twitter utilizes the concept of inline hashtags is something quite commendable. While composing a tweet, all you need to do is put a hash symbol (#) before the desired subject, place, person or topic in order to get your tweet organized, and easily discoverable within the extensive pool of hashtags that exist on the network. Wouldn't it be great if you could employ the same concept to routine note taking? Say hello to Fetchnotes – a cross-platform note-taking app for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS-powered devices that lets you add inline hashtags to your notes for easier organizing and searching purposes. Sporting a neatly designed UI, Fetchnotes makes your task of creating notes extremely convenient via simple swipe gestures. Each user-defined hashtag represents a specific category/topic under which you can assign all your relevant notes. This simplifies searching for all notes falling under a specific hashtag, as all you need to do is tap a tag to view all the posts under it. Read More
