Today we spent sometime browsing Chrome web store looking for note taking apps that run offline. We came across several titles but most of them did not make the cut either because of technical glitches involved in their installation or bad performance behaviour when installed. We ended up with these four apps.
These extensions can be used to capture and jot down quick notes offline, record to-do lists, scribble notes, attach reminders, and many more.
1- Quick Note
This is a great app for lightweight note taking. You can use it to quickly add and edit notes. It also provides an integrated search functionality that allows you to do instant search for all your notes.
2- Memo Notepad
“Memo Notepad is a very easy and simple way to write your notes in Chrome. Your notes are saved as you type to your local computer, and you can also sync and backup your notes via the cloud service.”
Scribble allows you to capture quick notes and thoughts in text format. You can add reminders, colours and to-do lists to your notes and store them in your browser to access them when you are offline.
“Writebox is a off-line text editor for Dropbox and Google Drive. You can write text on your web-browser and sync your text with Dropbox/Google Drive storage. Writebox is very simple and helps you to concentrate your writing.”
Capture life moments, from everyday thoughts to useful travel logs, Journey helps you to rediscover the joy of journal writing through the warmth and humanity of the interface. Journey presents your life beautifully in calendar, photo and atlas view, allowing you to revisit the greatest moments of your journey anytime, anywhere.
6- Sticky Notes
As its name indicate, Sticky Notes lets you create beautiful sticky notes using different colours and customization options. The app is also integrated with Google Drive.
