Today we’re breaking down the top ten best note taking apps that are available today (in my very humble opinion, at least).

This list has choices for people on pretty much every platform – Windows PCs, Mac OS computers, iPhones, iPads, and all iOS devices, Android phones and tablets, web browsers, and even you Linux folks aren’t left out.

We’ll talk about note organization features, folder hierarchies, Markdown capabilities, optical character recognition, image annotations, and lots more.
