With the recent Android 3.2.1 update a new app called Supernote was silently introduced – one that will revolutionize the way you take notes in class.
Of course, there are already ways to take notes in class with your ASUS Eee Pad Transformer or Slider Tablet using the included Polaris Office Suite, but Supernote takes note-taking to a whole new level.
With Supernote you can switch seamlessly between typing notes with your keyboard or handwriting them with your finger. As you scribble the characters you write will be converted into images so you can delete and edit letter by letter or word by word (depending on how fast you write) if you need to make changes later. Pause after each letter and watch them be inserted letter by letter – or write faster and insert entire words or sentences at a time.
But of course, the best thing about having a touchscreen is that you aren’t confined to just writing. Supernote makes creating charts and graphs easy and seamless. Just click “Add Annotation” to switch to drawing mode where you can create economics graphs or sin curves - then manipulate them to re-size or place them wherever you like in your notes.
And for lectures where your prof moves just a bit too quickly to copy all their notes or graphs Supernote has an added feature. Your Tablet’s camera is integrated into Supernote so that you can quickly snap a photo of the blackboard or projector slides and insert it directly into your slides.
Once you’ve finished your note-taking for each class you can sort them into “Notebooks” labelled for each course you’re taking. Add multiple pages per notebook, and multiple Supernote notebooks, just like you would have in your coil notebook.
If you were on the fence about taking notes with your tablet before – this should help change your mind.
