CALL Scotland is pleased to announce the release of a new resource; 'Making the Most of Notes’ – an easy-to-use guide'.

Making the most of Notes

The Notes app is one of the most underrated and overlooked app on the iPad.

When it comes to note taking and word processing other apps are available at a cost, but if you’re looking for an easy-to-use app for capturing notes and ideas, creating checklists, adding images, videos and drawing illustrations, and more – then Notes is the hidden gem you’ve been looking for. And it’s free!

The new guide highlights a range of features and tools, including:

  • Folders, to arrange and store all your files including images, videos, drawings etc.
  • Drawing tools – for making mind maps, sketches, drawing and measuring shapes (including geometrical shapes) or even for fun doodling! 
  • A to-do list to keep track of school work, deadlines and other activities.
  • Formatting tools to turn Notes into a powerful word processor.
  • Embedding and storing content from other apps such as map locations (great for geography), voice recordings (record an idea for an essay or project and store it in Notes) Keynote or PowerPoint presentations and much more. 
  • Adding videos and photographs.

Other features in Notes include using Siri to dictate text (or ask Siri to 'Start a new Note'), collaborating with others on projects within Notes.

Also, the iPad’s accessibility features integrate seamlessly with Notes, such as Speak Screen to hear content in Notes spoken aloud and Typing feedback so you hear words read aloud as you type. 

For more information and tips on Making the Most of Notes you can download the guide.

For best results print the guide in A3 size.
