Taking notes with Jarnal


Article from Issue 75/2007

Jarnal provides some handy features that make this application more than just a note-taking tool.

Text editors and word processors are good for writing and editing text, but they are not up to snuff when it comes to taking notes, annotating documents, and doodling. For this purpose, you need a dedicated tool like Jarnal, a unique application that can make your computing more efficient.

Although Jarnal is a perfect companion for Tablet PCs, you can easily use it on your regular laptop and even on a desktop system. However, if you plan to use Jarnal for some serious work, you should consider investing in a pen tablet if you don’t already have one. Pen tablets are cheap, and you can pick up a new or a used one for little money. Since Jarnal is written in Java, you must have the Java Runtime Environment installed on your machine in order to use it. Once you’ve done all the preparatory work, download the latest release of Jarnal, unzip it, and run the jarnal.sh script.
