|Samsung Galaxy Tab A|
with s-pen (8" version)
Before I talk about the use of the apps, I have to first explain the choice of tablet. I used to own a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and I loved it. I used it a lot whilst I was studying but decided to sell it so I could buy a decent laptop. I didn't think I would have a need for a tablet like that once I was teaching. The one thing I loved most about it was the fact that the stylus was the closest resemblance to writing with an actual pen.
|I feel so organised by keeping all my|
notes in Evernote.
*disclaimer - this is not an ad for Samsung, I know there are a few brands with pen-like styluses; I just prefer this brand as it is what I am most familiar with.
|Meet Squid (formerly Papyrus)|
Squid (formerly called Papyrus) is a note taking app for use with Styluses. I really like their features because they allow me to scribe over the top of pdf files which is perfect for when I am doing running records. Once I have annotated the pdf's I am easily able to export it to my chosen Evernote notebook for later viewing.
It may sound a bit like double handling using two apps but I find that Evernote (in particular, the Skitch feature) for Android is a bit laggy when it comes to handwritten annotations.
Anyway, I have rambled enough. Here is some photo's to help you get started. If you need some help, feel free to leave a comment and I can walk you through it.
