Gathering information online used to mean saving folders full of images or copying and pasting text into a word processing documents, but then web clipping services such as Evernote made it easier than ever to collect together information and organise it however you wanted.
Evernote is an undoubtedly powerful tool, but for many people its features may be a little over the top and the interface somewhat overwhelming. Memonic is an alternative tool that keeps things simple and yet retains the most useful note management features.
The service can be used via the Memonics web site, using a Windows program, with browser extensions or by making use of an iOS app. Almost anything you encounter online, from text to images, can be clipped and saved to your notes and organised in a variety of ways in a customisable and searchable database.
While client software is only available for iOS and Windows, the fact that plugins are available for all popular web browsers means that the service can also be used by Mac and Linux users as well. As well as providing a handy way of collating information you need for personal project, Memotic can also be used for collaborative work thanks to the built in sharing options. As has become the norm, the sharing of information via the likes of Facebook and Twitter is also available.
Memotic can be used in so many different ways, from conducting research and group brainstorming, to storing bookmarks online and sharing information between your computers. The free version of the service is limited to creating 100 notes, but by upgrading to the premium edition this limit is removed.
