I am not a huge fan of installing all kind of gadgets on my machines. The leaner the better. Sometimes I am seduced and I install a new piece of gadget software. Lately I installed the following:
1. joplin for making and archiving notes;
2. weylus for making drawings and graphs on my tablet and displaying this on a large screen.
Making notes is chaos. I use a simple text editor or a word processor. This leaves me with all kind of text files under different names stored in a folder notes, and I have folders like this on different devices such as a phone or my tablet. What I need is a piece of software that stores my notes and synchronize it my other devices. Joplin is a find: doing exactly what I need, easy to use and to install. It is available for all OS, from Windows to Linux and Android. Here is a screen dump of the program.
