06 May Milanote is the next step in notetaking evolution and it’s wicked cool
If you’re like me, you’ve had many phases in your idea-having, note-taking life. There was the AP History period, where I decided the quality of my notes would be judged based on the tininess of my handwriting and the number of innovative abbreviations coined. There was the “song collection” period, in which I wrote down song and band names with reckless abandon, on any scrap of paper or non-paper within reach, and promptly scattered the scraps everywhere. There was the post-it era, in which every single idea was carefully documented on a “Sticky Note” that tiled over my Windows desktop and was impossible to find thereafter.
And then, there was Evernote, and Trello, and I thought my evolution was complete. I had neatly organized “Notebooks” and “Cards” and I felt very structured and efficient and spiritually done with my note-taking journey.
But a whisper of rebellion called out to me. It sounded musical, colorful, whimsical. It asked me whether I wouldn’t like to liberate myself from those neat lists and stacks, let my ideas flow, visualize my thoughts?
It introduced me to Milanote – the note-taking app truly made for images, not just tolerant of them.
Milanote markets itself toward so-called creatives: “For the research, thinking and planning behind your next great piece of work.”
But the strengths of this app could benefit anyone who could use a more freeform space to collect their thoughts. A blank page resembles a peg board, and users can add images, notes, links, and more in any configuration their hearts desire. You can also link any elements together with a web of lines, or leave them on their own.
This could be a great app for early-stage brainstorming and planning, when you need to play around and be flexible.
Milanote can be collaborative, like Trello, or individual and personal, like my always-evolving grocery list in Evernote. Milanote currently works in any web browser, and iOs and Android apps are coming soon.
Start taking notes!
For up to 100 notes, Milanote can be yours free of charge. More than that, though, and you’ll have to pay $15 a month for the infinite space ($12/month when you pay for full year at a time).
Something tells me infinity should cost much more, but the organic, customizable concept is something to hold on to.
