About two-weeks ago a simple site called Jjot launched as an easy way for you to aggregate all of your notes into one simple location. It’s a fast, lightweight, and simple service that doesn’t cost a dime. It’s not packed with a lot of features like the Google Notebook, but did I say it is fast?
I’ve been using it for a few days to jot down some things that I don’t want to forget, and it’s actually quite nice. Here are some things that I’ve noticed you can do:
- Maximize a note so that you can easily view the contents.
- Increase/decrease the size of all the notes on the page.
- Organize your notes into Noteboards.
- Email or print an individual note, or an entire Noteboard.
- Deleting a note puts it in an archive so that it isn’t permanently lost.
- Notes are searchable.
The only thing that is close to this in terms of features is Webnote. The two services are pretty similar, except that Webnote lets you place notes anywhere on the page. Jjot keeps everything nicely aligned to a grid, which is actually what my preference is.
One thing that I would like to see added to the service is a bookmarklet. That way I can create a note on any page that I’m currently visiting, but Jjot loads fast enough that I don’t see it being too much of a problem.
