I was reading an article about work productivity, meaning typical office work, citing several iPad apps as must-haves when I discovered SoundNote. Well, genealogy researchers need to be productive, right? This little beauty records a spoken word interview or meeting quite nicely while you type notes using the iPad soft keyboard. Later, you can use your notes to jump to a specific place in the recording. You can even draw with a built-in pencil if doodle sketches work better for you as reminders. The whole thing can be saved to your Dropbox (BTW, that link is a referral for those of you who haven’t tried it!) or to a SoundNote space and you can email the notes including a link to the sound file to anywhere. I sent it to my Evernote account. It’s a great way to be productive!
