Note-taking apps you can use for your business

Table of Contents

Whether it’s keeping your to-do list on track, or you just to have something handy on your phone that you can jot down a thought as you’re walking to your next meeting – or you want to record key points in a training session – note-taking apps are an incredibly useful item to have in your digital toolkit for your business.

It’s something I get asked about a fair amount, so I thought I’d take moment to give you some options and explain what we use at Hypestar.

This is not an exhaustive list by any stretch, but if there’s something that you think should be included, let me know in the comments below.

Google Keep

Capture notes, share them with others, and access them from your computer, phone or tablet. Free with a Google account.


My favourite go-to note-taking app. Works on your smartphone, in browser and browser extension. This tool is also pretty well baked into the Google tools/G Suite experience, so you’ll find the Google Keep icon hovering over on the right-hand side of your browser window when you’re in Gmail.

Share your notes with other people to ensure that you’re both seeing the same stuff (shopping list that your partner can cross stuff off as they buy it?). We use it here as a rolling to-do list so we can all see what has/hasn’t been done yet while we’re in different offices.


Our note taking app helps you capture and prioritize ideas, projects and to-do lists, so nothing falls through the cracks. Start your free trial today!


Perhaps one of the better-known note-taking apps. You can do some pretty cool integrations with Evernote too, linking it up with email services, Slack, some CRMs etc.

Dropbox Paper

Dropbox Paper is a new type of document designed for creative work.


Dropbox continues to roll out some pretty nifty features for their Paper tool. Focussing largely on the collaborative nature of group notes, it could be a good companion to teams or virtual meetings etc. as well as a pretty nice note taker.

Any and all of these could be a good fit for you, but have a play with them and see which one works well for you. You may well be wrong a lover of paper and pen, but a digital companion to use as well (or instead?) helps to ensure that you don’t need to remember your writing stuff – because you can have tools like this on your phone, tablet or tablet.

Whatever solution is right for you, that’s totally cool – whichever you choose, we hope to see you taking those notes on one of our training sessions soon.
