Assistive Technology – A Review of AudioNote
I wish I could say that I am one of those uber-organized individuals who consistently use my planner for all my notes. Unfortunately, I have always been a post-it and original “palm pilot” note-taker. This means that my post-its get misplaced, and well, since I wash my hands, I lose my “palm pilot” notes!
Assistive technology specialist! – My new role!
I have been looking at various applications to help students with note-taking in class in my new role. So I have been trying a few of these out. One of my favorites is AudioNote. They recently added an update to AudioNote. I downloaded it and then removed the upgrade. While the upgrade has some great features, I was a little disappointed in the additional price for the upgrades. So this review is on
They recently added the update (which was an upgrade to AudoNote2) to AudioNote. I downloaded it and then removed the upgrade. While the upgrade has some great features, I was a little disappointed in the additional price for the upgrades. It is a yearly fee. You can try the free version of AudioNote2, but there are ads. Since I had already purchased AudioNote (and have it on my MacBook, laptop, and phone, I had hoped there would be a discount for purchasing the subscription to AudioNote2, but there wasn’t :(. I still love this app, and you can download the original AudioNote
Why I love the AudioNote application!
- It has lines
- Synchronization between iPad, iPhone, and Macbook
- Highlighter feature
- Drawing/doodle feature
- The ability to record audio that coordinates with notes.
- You can type or draw with a stylus/finger.
- You can include pictures within the notes.
So how do you think this will help you or one of your students?
