Taking notes used to be quite a messy job because the conditions leading to the need to create them are no always favorable to order. However, this is no longer the case because there are lots of applications that offer to organize all your ideas for you.
Action Note is one of those programs that only require that you type in your ideas, assign tags, then let it group them so that you can easily access them at a later point.
Before anything else, it must be said that Action Note is a universal app, meaning that, besides Windows 10 computers, it also works on mobile devices as well as HoloLens, which adds to its flexibility factor since it guarantees that your notes are readily available no matter the machine you are currently using.
As for the program’s appearance, we are talking about a minimalist interface that makes navigation easy as pie. The main window displays a list of all the entries, with their titles as well as a preview of their description plus a color tag and their level of importance.
Further exploring the left panel, you get to the “Archive” section, where you can find all your previously deleted notes in case you change your mind and want to restore any of them. At the same time, removing them forever is also an option if you are sure you no longer need them.
As for the note-taking process itself, things are clear-cut. You simply have to click the + button at the bottom of the main window, settle on a title as well as content, and you’re done. However, attaching a file, and more specifically an image stored on your PC, can be done so that your notes are suitably illustrated.
Even though there are not many editing tools at your disposal, a nice addition to the program is its ability to read aloud your notes so that you can easily review them while multitasking. Besides, a QR scanner is on the feature list you can take advantage of.
The note-taking application tries to differentiate itself from competition by offering extra accessibility, and during our tests, it indeed proved to be quite capable on this front. Proof of that is the fact that it allows you to pin any of your notes to the Start Screen.
Other than that, the fact that the note manager is integrated into the Action Center, letting you explore your entries and even create new ones, shows that the application is quite keen on offering a comfortable user experience.
All in all, Action Note is a lightweight application that provides all the basic tools you may need in order to write down your ideas in an intelligible and easily accessible manner.
