As much as we love jotting down ideas and drawings in our pretty Field Notes, Scout Books, and Moleskine notebooks, we’ve gotta thank our smartphones for making the act of taking notes a whole lot easier.

And the truth is, sometimes a note can actually be better in digital form. Say you want to copy a link, snap a photo, or even record a note? Not very easy with the old paper notebook, eh? We’ve already shown you our faves for keeping track of all those pesky to-dos. Now, to help you find your perfect note-taking app, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best, most efficient, and most convenient ones around.

2. Note Everything Pro: Note Everything really does what it says. Android users can create text, photo, and voice notes. You can also sync it to your Note Everything Documents account or Google Docs. What’s even more fun? You can paint notes! Perfect for the artists who love to write their notes with a little more spunk. ($5, Android)

3. Color Note: Love old school Post-It notes? Then this is the perfect app for you. Jot down notes, memos, lists, etc., and keep them all color coded. It also comes with a Calendar function if you want one app for both functions. (Free, Android)

4. AudioNote: Take note students and professionals, this is a great app for lectures and meetings. With this app, not only are you taking notes, but it also records audio at the same time. Once you write a note, you can click on a word in it, and it’ll bring you back to the point in the audio recording when you wrote that note. So. Cool. ($5, iOS and Android)
