1. Microsoft's OneNote: The first app that I use is OneNote by Microsoft. It is an app, a website, and a computer program. The best thing about OneNote (provided that you use Office 2010 or later) is that everything syncs via the cloud. In my OneNote, I have three notebooks: one for my work, one for my personal life, and one for my grad school classes. My son, who is in 6th grade, also has a notebook for all of his classes. His notebook is also shared with me, so that I can keep track of what is going on in his classes. This one program has been a fantastic way for me to stay organized and to keep up with all of the notebooks that I used to keep for every facet of my life. My husband also uses it in both his professional and personal life to replace the hundreds of partially-used legal pads that he used to use to take notes.
*Caveat: If you only have access to Office 2007 or earlier, you will lose out on the best feature of OneNote, cloud syncing, and will likely be unimpressed.
**Used by me as: students, teacher, ITS, human being
Coming up: What to do with all of those files when you have too many devices...
Sorry that I was gone so long! I'll be back after UGA plays LSU in Athens with my #2 app. Have a great weekend!
