Got an idea or random thoughts or while surfing websites you got something to note or simply you want to create a to-do list, then why not capture it in your notes.Taking short notes, of what you learn or any other kinds of stuff that may be useful for you in future, is considered a good habit. There are numerous ways to take notes. Usually, people take notes by writing on papers or notebooks but it becomes quite unfeasible to manage these notes when a number of notes increase.
