Sometimes it might be difficult for you to drop what you’re doing and take a note on a pad of paper before running out the door, or open your favorite online note taking solution like Walnote or Stikkit. Andrei to the rescue. Andrei sent in a note to the WebWorkerDaily team advising us of the simple free note to self email form tool he built.
No usernames or passwords needed here, its all open. When you visit the Note2email homepage all you are hit with is a clean and simple form with email, title, and a note field. Fill in your email address, title, and a note to yourself, and it will be emailed out. Emailed notes do take longer than we would like for the recipient to receive, but nonetheless, this seems like a simple and effective online tool for notes.
How can you take full advantage of this tool while streamlining it a bit? Let’s take a look.
Take your standard Gmail account. You can fully utilize this as an easy location for receiving and checking your quick notes.
- Fill out the Note2email’s email and title fields only. Use the title field as a descriptive note area, starting off with “NOTE – your note copy”.
- Send the email.
- When you open your Gmail account up, not only will your notes be easy to locate and read, they will be prominent over other emails in your inbox. Having your main note in the title field, rather than in the body of the email, will save valuable time since you will no longer need to open the email up to read your note.
If there are any other WebWorkerDaily readers that have created online applications that could have some benefits for webworkers, let us know, we will be happy to take a look at them.
