Notejoy for Mac & Windows

Most of our power users love using Notejoy's Mac and Windows apps as their primary Notejoy client for a variety of reasons. First, as they are often copying and pasting content to Notejoy from their web browser, it's helpful for Notejoy to be a dedicated window as opposed to just another tab in their browser. They also enjoy that it's always at their fingertips: available in the Dock or taskbar to quickly jump into to capture notes. The desktop app also makes it easier to manage multiple Notejoy windows so you can easily have multiple notes open side-by-side for reference.

Notejoy for iOS & Android

Notejoy's iOS and Android apps are the perfect on-the-go companion for capturing notes. Just open up the app, press the big red Add Note button, and start tapping away to get your thoughts captured. You don't even after to worry about where you put the notes, because as soon as you get back to your laptop, you'll find them at the top of your Recent view, so you can process and organize them further there. You can also easily save images from your camera roll to Notejoy and use your phone's built-in audio transcription to capture audio as text.

Web Clipper for Chrome & Firefox

When you are exploring the web, Notejoy makes it super easy for you to clip any article or web page as a note in Notejoy for later reference. Great for articles, research, recipes, and more. Notejoy's web clipper clips a simplified version of the page to Notejoy, removing all the cruft and focusing on the main content you are trying to capture. You can then go to Notejoy to add highlights, comments, and more. Notejoy's web clipper is available for both Chrome and Firefox.
