  • Evernote

    Freemium Mac OS X Windows Web Android iPhone ... Blackberry Windows RT Android Tablet Windows Phone iPad Apple Watch Android Wear Kindle Fire Pebble Website

    Evernote is a cross-platform, freemium app designed for note taking, organizing, and archiving.

    The app allows users to create a "note" which can be a piece of formatted text, a full webpage or webpage excerpt, a photograph, a voice memo, or a handwritten "ink" note.

    Notes can also have file attachments. Notebooks can be added to a stack while notes can be sorted into a notebook, tagged, annotated, edited, given comments, searched, and exported as part of a notebook.

    Evernote Premium features:

    Offline notes
    Your notes are available anywhere, anytime, even without an internet connection. Perfect for flights, international travel and working on the go.

    Passcode lock
    Make sure only you can access your notes. Add a layer of security on mobile devices to protect your valuable information such as business plans, receipts, health information, and photographs.

    Business card scanning
    Leave behind your stack of cards by scanning them using Evernote's camera. Capture and store all contact information, a photo of the card and choose to automatically pull additional profile details from LinkedIn.

    Presentation mode
    Present directly from your notes in a full-screen layout for more collaborative, efficient meetings.

    PDF annotation
    When a picture’s worth a thousand words, you can avoid lengthy email dialogue. There’s no quicker way to call attention to contract edits or design changes.

    Context and Knowledge Discovery
    Context reveals notes with related content and documents, and Knowledge Discovery identifies co-workers who are experts on the topic or project you're working on.

    Faster image recognition
    Find what you’re looking for, faster. We scan your images faster, so text within them is searchable sooner. Find text in handwritten notes, Post-it® Notes, whiteboard drawings and more.

    Search in PDFs and Office docs
    Your files are easily searchable within Evernote. Quickly locate your Office and work documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and PDFs.

  • Zim

    Free Mac Windows Linux BSD Website

    Zim brings the concept of a wiki to your desktop. Store information, link pages and edit with WYSISYG markup or directly typing some lightweight markup syntax and see it previewed as-you-type. Creating a new page is easy by either clicking on the "Create new note" button, by linking to a non-existing page or by writing a CamelCase name in any note. Pages are stored in a folder structure, like in an outliner, in plain text format with lightweight markup, and can have attachments (stored along the notes).

    This tool can be used to keep track of TODO lists or ideas, to take notes during a meeting, to draft any other kind of text (blog entries, important mails, etc.) or to write long texts like lab research notebooks thank's to the headers structure and the table of content navigation.

    Zim handles several types of formatting markup, like headings, bullet lists, checkbox, tables and of course bold, italic and highlighted. This markup is saved as a hybrid wiki/markdown text so you can easily edit it with other editors. Because of the autosave feature you can switch between pages and follow links or even close the software anytime while editing without worries. The interface also provides multi-document tabs, and it remembers the cursor position in all notes for quick resuming in your note taking endeavors.
