Appified Note-Taking Consumers turn to mobile apps for connected note-taking Implications - Note-taking apps are a natural extension of the consumer desire for connected tools that streamline day-to-day activities.

The incorporation of non-digital tools used in combination with analog ones signals the need of individuals to have a non-tech backup, proving that the main concern remains preserving content by any means.
