We are going to talk about two of the most popular note taking apps that you can find on your smartphone, sure to increase your productivity level up a few notches. Be it Android, iPhone, iPad or Windows 7, Evernote is available on almost all of the OS. It comes with the advantage of allowing users capture virtually whatever they want. To create notes has been oversimplified by Evernote – plus the note will support different types of media. This integrates into a part of a notepad.
What’s so new about the Evernote?
You never would be tired of searching because searching on Evernote is really easy and convenient. Be it a hand written text inside an image, you can find it using Evernote. You will find variable options for entering text, photos, attachments; you can tell Evernote where you are currently located and you can enter calendar links, email and tags too.
Now what are tags? They are actually keywords which can be associated with the user created notes to be a connecting link to similar and related subjects. Thus comes in place the powerful search database which is always a single click away and this is made possible only with the ability of adding, removing tags whenever a note is created. Medical professions love this app for making work convenient and quicker.
What surprises the user is that Evernote has integral cloud sync, and the ability to access notes from anywhere. There are many applications for healthcare professionals, and it can successfully be used to store patient data. The sheer genius of Evernote is that all data we feed to it is properly organised, totally effective and highly productive, and that’s what makes it adaptable to the needs of almost any person’s individual requirements. Thus Evernote can prove to be useful for medical professionals by creating a searchable, organised place to put all our notes and thoughts.
What’s different with Skitch?
Skitch, another great app comes into effect when used in conjunction with Evernote. In simple terms, it is a photo annotation tool. This is another product that had been launched by the makers of Evernote. Available on Mac, iPhone and Windows, it’s easy to start off. Your start can be a bare beginning like taking a photo, choosing one from the already uploaded files.
You can also start things off with a map or a web search. To give the teaching a jump start, you can add texts and highlights to the same. The menu is also very easy to go through and things are made even simpler with the navigable controls. It is too obvious to state that it is a very user friendly app.
You can create a highly efficient interface using a simple image along with the tags you added. It lets you open up an iOS map of the locality that makes it easy to locate hospitals in the locality. There is an auto save feature which directly transfers all the image annotations to the Evernote library.
Skitch is at best very simple and useful and it facilitates users to clip from maps from within the app. This along with Evernote can become a time saver for all medical professionals. Simplicity sometimes is the way to go about when it comes to apps helpful for medical professionals – skitch is an example.
