About Zoho Notebook

Zoho Notebook is a free app that makes note-taking simple, but to be really useful, it needs a web version and better organizational features.This free app from Zoho gives you virtual notebooks with designer covers to store card style notes. The covers make it easy to segregate and identify different notebooks. You can also choose fonts, font size and colours as per your preference. Zoho Notebook is available across Windows, Mac, iOS and Android.

Zoho Notebook lets you create notes in 6 categories: text notes, checklists, audio notes, photo notes, sketches and document notes. 

Zoho Notebook Review

What Is Zoho Notebook?

Zoho Notebook is part of an online application suite that includes a word processor, chat service and other applications. As an individual, you can get a free Zoho account, which gives you access to all of the program's tools. Paid plans are available for businesses and organizations featuring multiple users. Zoho has a special website you can access using portable electronic devices, but no mobile apps.

Notebook features a single pane with toolbars and a sidebar that shows the notes you've saved to your account. Notes are organized into notebooks, which can have multiple pages. It's possible to share entire notebooks with other users, or keep them private for your own use. Users can add images, video and audio to their notes. There are also some drawing tools that can allow you to add shapes, lines and freehand drawings to your notes.

Is Zoho Notebook free?

Zoho Notebook is completely free to use. There are no in-app purchases. Your data is kept secure and private.

Is Zoho Notebook easy to use?

Zoho Notebook makes note taking easy for teachers and students. The Notebook application is one of Zoho's many functions, and it's possible for individuals to use those other functions in collaboration with the notetaking tool. For example, if you create image slides in Zoho Show, you can add them to a notebook. You can also use Zoho chat with other users while writing in a notebook, allowing for collaboration through the same application. I also like the fact that individual users don't have to pay for the service.

This combination of assets can make Zoho Notebook a good choice for students. Individuals signing up for an account in order to use Notebook may find educational uses for the program's other applications.

What are the best Zoho Notebook features?

Zoho Notebook is a note-taking app with a good stack of features. Users are encouraged to create separate notebooks within the app, each with a custom image. There's good support for images and rich text, and it's able to sync and backup across multiple devices. It supports checklists, photos, sketches, audio clips and files. Zoho notes works on Windows, Apple Mac, Android and iOS. On iOS, the app integrates with Siri. You can ask Siri to search through notes, for instance. 

Zoho Notebook features smooth, intuitive, gesture-based functions that help you organize, reorder, copy, group, and flick through notes to find what you're looking for.

Notebook integrates with plenty of platforms, including Google Drive, Gmail, Microsoft Teams, Slack, Zapier, and more. It is also easy to migrate across to, from the likes of Evernote with auto migration included.

How do I sync my Zoho Notebook?

If you want to have your notes synced across your devices, you need to sign-up for a free account. Its not mandatory to sign up if you don't want to back up online and only want to keep notes on your current device. 

Zoho Notebook Drawbacks

We found this application's interface somewhat confusing. There is a help section that provides an explanation of how to use the program, so this confusion didn't prevent me from being able to use the program. There was something of a learning curve with Zoho Notebook - more so than any of the other notetaking programs we reviewed - but we don't think this will be a boundary for all users. Those who are less tech savvy will probably prefer a program with more streamlined, user-friendly controls, but I think Zoho Notebook's assets outweigh this particular drawback.

Zoho Notebook is a digital note-taking tool that works across devices and operating systems. It is an online suite of tools, including a word processor, an image and audio creator, and organizer.
