Comments from some of those who selected Evernote as one of their Top Tools 

“Tools for managing the tidal wave of information we are all subjected to are an absolute necessity. If we’re not to drown under uncategorised information overload, and if we’re to reduce the time we spend trying to find the ‘right stuff’ at the right time we need tools like Evernote.  It’s certainly a tool that works for me. Evernote is the frontal lobe of my ‘external brain’ (where Google Search is probably the rest of my digital cerebral cortex). Evernote is on all my devices and use it every time I want to save an interesting ‘snippet’ that I may want to access and use in future.” Charles Jennings, 2015

“I use this to manage all my projects at work and personally, can send an Outlook email directly to evernote, create organized notebooks, collaborate with people, and more!” Jennifer Smith, 2015

Comments from some of those who selected OneNote as one of their Top Tools 

“it’s handy at work with colleagues” Natalie Raeber, 2015

“the best note-taking application on the Windows platform. Unbeatable in combination with SharePoint or OneDrive, and a tablet pc with a digitizer pen (like the Surface). It is now fully cross platform with a nice and stable client for OS X!” Jan Van Belle, 2015

“I began using OneNote early last year for note taking for work and school. Utilizing cloud storage and the cross-platform applications, I’m able to access my notes on my computer, phone, or iPad anywhere and anytime.” Rob Wiltbank, 2014
“Superior notetaking, research and eportfolios”  Jason de Nys, 2013
