I’m happy to pay EUR5 a month for Evernote as it’s the most powerful digital note-taking app I’ve ever used.

Like Evernote, Google Keep also suports image recognition, enabling you to convert images (photos of your notes) and PDFs into searchable text.
If you keep digital notes, tags are a great way of organising and finding these notes later on.
It’s free, it’s colourful and it comes on many Android devices.
You can use Google Keep to take notes and create lists, which are stored on Google Drive.
Your choice boils down to personal preference and how you like to work.
Whatever note-taking app you decide on, it’s important that you have a trusted system for getting ideas out of your head.
Last year, I attended a Photoshop course, where the lecturer shared an Evernote workbook of useful articles and images with the class.
This is an excellent way to take advantage of Evernote’s free multimedia features and share them with others.
