There are tons of ‘edu-formational’ content online. As you are browsing, you may find some material that you would like to quote or need to make notes on. There is a plethora of application that can help you do that; ranging from launching the MS Word, or Notepad and many other alternatives.
However, most of them don’t sync to your Google Drive that well. It will require a bit of extra effort from you for that to happen, but what if you want to make notes while browsing and have it sync to your Google Drive automatically?
Well, there is this nifty Chrome browser extension that allows you to sync your notes to your Google Drive seamlessly. Dubbed My Notes, this app is available for free download from the Chrome Web Store.
Upon installing the extension, you will first need to permit it to access your Google account. You do that by signing in to your Google account and granting the app that permission. The first time you install the app, it automatically takes you to the signing in page, so you can complete the authentication process before starting to use it.
When you are browsing and would like to take note, you simply click on the pen icon located on the upper-right corner of your Chrome browser and simply start to write. When you are done with your notes taking, you have two options; Save to Drive or Mail to Self. The former saves the notes to your Google Drive while the latter allows you to email yourself those notes.
When emailing, the email can only go to contacts already in your contact address. When you want to start new notes, you simply need to click on Create new.
You can download the app from the Chrome Web Store at this link.
