    "I was a little skeptic about this one but decided to give it a try anyway since I really do get distracted easily, and to my surprise, it actually helped! It's not something like completely dramatic, but I've definitely been getting more things done with this tool, so i must admit it helps you focus!"

      "Devonthink is literally like an online home office that I can access from anywhere to start, work on or even finish my projects. I can sync my data which is great if I have an idea while I'm traveling or away from my computer. I can share information from my Mac and PC in addition to scanning papers and archiving emails. This is a much better alternative to Evernote."

      "DEVONthink is probably the most clever management software I've ever heard of. The ability to sync all my work together from different places is great, but to do that even with physical drafts of my work is even better. With DEVONthink I feel like I have my home computer with me where ever I go, and that is something I like."

      "OneNote is a great piece of software. It's very customizable so I can make my projects look exactly how I want. Plus, the access from multiple devices is very useful and seamless. I was somewhat disappointed by Evernote, but this software had an answer to all my frustrations."

      "If you were the type of person that got down a lot of notes or lists and this could be there for you. It is very simple to use. You pretty much write your notes and that's it. And as a bonus it stays in sync with all your devices for no additional charge."

      "I love how Keep My Notes actually does what it claims to do. Not only does the app claim what it does, but it's also completely free. Sure it does contain a few ads, but that's not a big problem. The trade-off is much more worth it. I use this app for all my notes, and my favorite aspect about this is app is the offline backup functionality."

      "This looks like it could be a very useful tool and I really like the fact that it can be used with Word docs and they can be converted back and forth as so much of what I have now is in Word, so it wouldn't make those files obsolete and I wouldn't have to spend time transferring all of the data from those to the new format. I also use an open source Word that came with my new computer and I like it's layout better, I don't know if this Google program would be compatible with the open source Word? If not, I would have to save those extensions as the actual Word doc which would be a little extra work, but I see some real benefits with this that would make it worth the time and effort. This would have made some work in the past so much easier as people I was working with could have all been using the same document instead of constantly sending our documents back and forth to each other and trying to combine them into a final document."

      "I use Google Docs almost everyday. It's a great alternative if you've ever used Evernote. You can save your work under your profile and the access it from any computer. Also, with its auto save function you never loose your work. A total lifesaver!"

Currently it is just a basic version, I am looking forward to what is coming next.."

What I like the best is the built in web clipper for the iPad version. It's exceptional when you need to collect information from web pages, and it allows you to trace back to the original sources."
