No more lost notes and forgotten tasks: we show you how to use note apps and digital to-do lists to better organise and simplify your everyday life.

Are you somebody who still uses pen and paper to make notes? Then it is high time you switched to digital notes. Because: how many times have you written down an important note on a piece of paper, and then you cannot locate it later? Or you created a to-do list that only turned up after the event? Digital note apps and to-do lists help you eliminate inconveniences such as this from your everyday life. They are easy to use and can be synced across different devices. This means you can take your notes with you wherever you go.

💡 Tip: use your phone’s voice input to take notes in your app when you are on the go. This is much faster and simpler than typing on a small screen.
