In a recent video by the Paperless Movement®, Tom Solid addresses a common concern that arises on social media: the question of “What is the best note-taking app?” and the often misguided and context-less answers that follow. He emphasizes that the question is frequently asked without considering the specific needs and purposes of the individual, leading to recommendations that may not suit the person’s unique requirements.
The Problem with Asking “What’s the Best Note-Taking App?”
Tom Solid highlights two main issues with this question. First, it’s often asked without context. Are the notes for personal or business use? Will they be shared with a team or client? Is the goal to gain personal insights or create a broader knowledge base? Without this information, it’s nearly impossible to recommend the right app.
Second, the answers on social media are often based on personal preferences, popular trends, or even replies from tool companies claiming to have the best solution. These responses don’t consider the individual’s specific needs, leading to recommendations that may not be the best fit.
