Information overload is really codeword for a lack of meaningful information. When we complain we’re inundated with useless information, what we really mean is we cannot make sense out of the information. When we fail to create meaningful connections between data points, we fail to organize information and make sense out of it. That’s when information overload sets in and our primordial appetites for the next Netflix binge start to growl.
To stave off your next Netflix binge, the NoteLedge update introduces a new workspace for users to fight information overload. The goal of connecting information is now baked into the interface. You can Collect Information from multiple resources, Organize them to connect ideas, then Build Knowledge and make it shareable.
Organize PDF Notes and References – Yes, We’ve Heard You
How else can you refer to the data if you have not made a conscious note of it? Waste another five minutes googling the data hoping to high heaven your search keywords will find it? Not happening.
The responses in our user surveys have prompted us to include the PDF annotation feature in this new iteration. With the new NoteLedge update, you can now highlight and annotate any PDF document. But that’s not all. Once you link your annotations to related notes, you can organize the key facts you pull from PDFs, and continue editing your notes.
Researchers and scientists who need to read lots of PDFs will now be able to highlight from multiple PDF documents, link the annotations and connect ideas. Tracing sources and references — a huge bugbear for researchers — is now a cinch with NoteLedge. Teachers preparing course materials will also appreciate how easy it is now to connect, organize and summarize key facts from e-books, research papers, magazines, or journals. All reference sources are stored securely in NoteLedge so retrieving them now is a hassle-free experience.
Trawling Information from the Internet
The Internet has always been a treasure-trove of information. But connecting that information and making sense of it is increasingly difficult. The new NoteLedge is more than up to the task though. It’s a great alternative to Evernote Web Clipper, more iPad-friendly and even sports a split-screen Web Clipper!
It’s now easier than ever to keep a collection of your favorite videos from YouTube and TED Talk, and add your thoughts and references. Reflect on them anytime and you’ll keep making those insightful connections so critical to innovation and creativity. Lost track of who created what? Just long-press the content in the Media Folder and you can trace the web-source immediately.
Fashion designers who literally get inspired by everything will find this feature especially useful. Drafting designs, planning an outfit, clipping preferred fabric color, and making a fashion journal are all now possible with the new and improved NoteLedge. Why wait till the iOS11 launch or for a newer iPad model when you can enjoy the split-screen Web Clipper on NoteLedge today?
