I’m interested in using my Nexus 7 for collage, anyone else using it to take notes in lectures and things? How is working for you?
What is the best note taking app for the N7?
As much as I like my N7, I type quite quickly so don’t really like using any tablet to type with, even with something like swiftkey installed. I’m a bit old fashioned like that :D
Do people generally adapt to typing on a tablet? Does it become easier if you use it for a bit?
Must admit that I’ve got into typing on the N7 fairly easily – still on default keyboard. Not as fast as at my desktop, but it’s a million miles away from typing on my phone.
I would be interested to know how writing with a stylus works…
Surely note-taking needs a real keyboard? As mentioned elsewhere on this forum, if you have room in your ruck-sack (and your wallet! – about £60 UK) get an Apple Bluetooth keyboard. Simply the best! Works just fine with Nexus 7.
If you need something more portable there are some reasonable folding Bluetooth keyboards.
Apps: why not key directly into Evernote? I do it all the time. No faffing about with transferring info: its there on your PC / Mac when you get home! If you are not an Evernote fan (why?) then try mNote (Android app) which integrates with SimpleNote (Notional Velocity on Mac) – its a pure, clean, simple note taking app in other words!
Must admit, I took my N7 into a meeting the other day to take notes.
Having Swiftkey was both an advantage and a disadvantage; it corrected a lot of my nonsense, but when I was typing up some information regarding a colleague called “Stu”, it autocorrected the word “stu” to “stunning”.
Thankfully I noticed before I sent the notes on :-)
