Notes on Notes

I use a lot of apps because I like different features of all of them.

Roamresearch The newest app I use. I currently use this app for meeting notes at work. I also use it as a scratch pad / minimal todo list throughout the day rather than paper. If I generate longer term todos at the end of the day I will transfer to my task manager (Things 3). So far I like it for this purpose.

Notion My main use case is for notes I need to study. I have a job where I have to go to training every 5 weeks. I have a written exam during this training week. I have been using Notion to keep my notes and use the toggle feature to ask myself questions. I want to replace Evernote, but it doesn’t have OCR of documents, and I can’t forward an email to it yet.

Evernote I dump documents and emails here. That is my main use case now. I also will write some general notes, but not many.

Google Drive I need to share documents with my wife, so before dumping in Evernote, I put a copy in google drive.

I know this is kind of crazy, but it works for me.

Until the next shiny app comes along…
