Default What do you use SNote for?

If there's a thread here for this, my apologies. I thought it would be nice to share uses for SNote.

I constantly find myself at the store wondering which refill (printer ink, air freshener spray thingy), etc I need to buy. Often leaving the store without it because I can't remember if I have an Air Wick Air Freshener or Glade. Or if my printer model is 3250 or 3520.

I made a note folder with a photo of the items I need to buy refills for. Now I always know which one to buy.

I also have a Christmas List folder and one for my drawings.

I didn't give it even a passing thought until just a few minutes ago. Then I opened it, and drew a smiley face. Then it occurred to me, in 31 years of owning computing devices, I have never, until today, been able to draw a smiley face with a pen on a computer. Ever.

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!

I have no idea how I'll use this feature in productive work, but I feel like someone just removed a tether from my ankle that I didn't even know was there.

And yea, I just picked up my Note II today.

Congratulations on your N2. When I got mine I didn't think I'd even use the SPen. Couldn't see and real benefit to having one. I can honeatly say that I have seen the light. I use to keep a pad and paper by my chair to jot things down. Now when I need to jot something down, I just whip out my SPen and jot away....

I use it primarily for brain farts You know, you get that random thought in your head that you need to pick up this or go check out that. I write those little notes with the S-Pen. And if I'm out and about, if I see a DVD or some product of interest, I'll jot it down with the S-Pen to remind me to research it later on. Plus it comes in handy when you need to get that phone number or whatever as well.

I use it for shopping list, reminder when I see or think of something I need to write down. To show someone an idea or explain a concept graphically where a piece of paper and a pencil would normally be used. I need to learn how to insert a photo taken with the camera, I think that would be very useful. Just recently I was price comparing between two stores and it came in handy to make notes.

Will i use it for everything
- as h1r0ll3r also use it for ideas that can come up anywhere
- use it as to do lists (shopping, work, reminders...ext.)
-Draw on my photography and sign my name before i post them online
- During my presentation and lectures as a teaching board
-Reading PDF books
- Sometime drawing funny stuff
-During meetings
Itís an awesome feature and i love it every day, though we used stylus before but spen and snote is a real innovation and fun creation

In the note you are writing, the 2nd item from the right up on the top bar top lets you insert a photo or take a pic.

I don't yet. I need a good video tutorial first. I love the idea of it, but the few times I've played with it have made it clear it isn't as intuitive as it could be (ymmv, of course!).

Here's a link to a Users Digest for the Note 2 in the Play Store. It includes video tutorials for the whole device. Maybe it will be useful.

Well, at first I used it to import pictures and draw moustaches on them, now I use it to write down all sorts of things:

1. I am a singer and I use it to quickly jot down songs ideas
2. My dad is in the hospital, and I am using it to jot down insurance and other medical information.

It is quite the application. S

I LOVE the fact that I can place the note into Evernote, directly from S Note. Share Via -> PDF -> Evernote. I use that all the time because Evernote is my main app for, well, a lot of stuff.

I also use it frequently to take notes when someone calls me and I'm not sitting at my desk. I get a lot of those types of calls, and I usually have a bluetooth headset, so I just whip out the pen and jot down actions, etc.

When I pull the pen out the quick note pops up, is there a way to have S Note start, I think it did that at first but I must have changed something.

Maybe you turned off Page Buddy. It's in settings, display.

Yep. I'd usually ended up leaving my analog shopping list sitting on the counter when I go to the store anyway. Now I never forget it.

Don't tell me I'm the only one who uses an app for shopping list.
The only time I seem to use S-Note is when I'm showing off.

As I understand it, Quick S Note is actually a minimal version of SNote. You'll notice that if you start to write something then touch the check button in the top left corner of the popup, it'll save your note and relaunch it in S Note.

So far I use Snote as a check/ to do list, writing down songs/artists that I hear about and want to listen to later, and as a shopping list. Pretty common uses but I love using it and I hope to find some more uses for it in the future.

Well I use the snote for making notes on various things.

I use my Spen for everything I do on my phone, so no nasty finger print marks on my screen.
