Sit down & take note!

We all tend to live at 100 miles an hour these days, trying to cram as much as we can into each day, which makes it hard to remember everything you need to do!

This blog is a guide to taking notes on the go, using some great apps and video tutorials to ensure that your notes stay with you at all times on your mobile device. From here they can be sent via email which saves you rewriting notes or copying for other people to read – you can share at the touch of a button.
