What’s On Your List

The concept of jotting down a list is nothing new nor is it innovative. Anyone can write a list on paper, in an email, or using an app. What makes a listing application interesting and important is it’s meaningful features that satisfy your purpose through collaboration, efficiency, and ease of use.


Two strong app candidates to consider for note taking are Google Keep and Wunderlist. Below is a comparison chart of their capabilities.

For GAFE district’s I definitely lean towards the usage of Google Keep. All features advocate for great usage abilities as well as ease of use for all users. Keep’s side docking, simplicity, sharing qualities, and ability to copy all notes into a Google Doc makes it a great tool for gathering notes, research, or documentation. The only issue I have is that it’s not available as an app in Apple’s App Store (however you can still use it using a web browser).
