For my professional activities, I have to take a lot of hand notes during meeetings with customers. I have to reprocess the notes afterward into protocol or minutes and most of the time my notes not only contain text but also sketches or diagrams.
I tried to use mind map tool or word processing software to take my notes, but I don't like to have my laptop open between me and my customer. I would like to use an iPad with a dedicated pen and software (with hand writting recognition). My colleague use a Lenovo tablet, which I find is way too thick to confortably write on a table.
My questions are not related to the software / pen, but on the handling and usability of the iPad solution:
- Who is using an iPad daily for taking hand notes and sketches? If yes, what are the inconvenience?
- Is it possible to work paper free?
- What are the reasons why this tool cannot be used for taking notes?
- What about the comfort compared to a sheet of paper and a real pen when taking notes during a 2 hours meeting?
