A handy program for keeping notes
Keeping a consistent collection of notes when working between many computers and other devices. Memonic is available in nearly every different form you could want. This download is the Windows desktop version but there are alternatives for iPhone and iPad, Mac OS X and Android. Finally it can work in a web browser
The Terms and Conditions are remarkably honest about the fact that communication is unencrypted and so can be read as it's sent. This is true of many email accounts as well but it's good to see it written down. Unless you're planning on recording highly confidential information or password it isn't really a problem
An account with Memonic is required and you can sign up through the software. All you need is an email address. The option to receive an email newsletter is preselected by default, but it's easy to deselect.
The layout of the desktop app is rather pleasant with a cork board effect. This is where existing notes are displayed.
Adding notes is easy and there are good formatting options including bullet points and paragraph numbering. It is possible to nest these lists, which is very useful when taking complicated notes or making plans.
Tags can be added to notes to improve organisation and they can also be kept in folders.
Notes can be shared with other people or kept private. Sharing can be done via email, Facebook, Twitter or a direct link.
The free Memonic account can store up to 100 notes, take part in 3 groups and has a maximum single attachment size of 2MB. The Premium account costs £18 a year and offers unlimited storage and groups and a maximum attachment size of 20MB. There are also student discounts.
Memonic compares very well with Everynote that offers a similar service. Evernote does have an edge by including audio recording on the iPad version.
