How to Choose the Best Note Taking Software in 2022 |

Look at Your Use Case

Consider Preferred Note Taking Styles

  • How important is it for you to be able to access live transcriptions of audio course materials?
  • Will you need to be able to access or edit notes you’ve taken in the past? If so, how do you want to store them?
  • Do you want to be able to add images, screenshots, or other types of information to your notes?
  • Do you need a note taking software that integrates with web applications like Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, or Zoom for virtual courses?
  • Does your note taking tool need to integrate with any other systems or technologies?

Evaluate Note Taking Software User Interfaces

  • How difficult is it to get started with the software?
  • Am I able to easily access all of the features I wanted, or are certain functionalities not that intuitive?
  • Does the program seem like it’ll seamlessly fit into my note taking workflows?
