Taking a pen and notebook to class or to a meeting may very well become a thing of the past with the advent of note taking software. Designed for students and business personnel it has the capability of accepting both handwritten and typed input. Handwritten notes can remain true to their original form and stored as images or can be converted into typed text. Note taking software was designed in order to make the time-honored tradition of putting pen to paper to record pertinent facts less taxing and more efficient for all involved. After inputting the information it is then organized using a custom tab system for easy retrieval. Web notebooks – such as Google Notebook and Zoho Notebook – are online versions of note taking software that are specifically programmed to organize the user’s online files such as web pages, research, text and images.
