Note Taking Cum Translator App for Windows 8: ThinkNote
ThinkNote can be downloaded from the Windows App Store.
Features in brief…
THE LANDING PAGE…
When you launch the ThinkNote app on your device, you will be taken to the landing page of the app as can be seen in the screenshot below.
You can log in to the app by launching the control bar (by right clicking or swiping down from the top of the screen) which is needed if you need to sync your notes to OneNote. The app can easily log you in with your Microsoft account.
Once logged in, you can start using the app (although you can still use the app without logging in, logging in will allow you to access the complete functionality of the app).
THE EDITOR INTERFACE…
To access the editor interface, just click on the heading Editor in the main screen of the app, which will present you with the below screen.
You can see that the app’s editor interface has all the text editing options in the tool bar at the top, and it also highlights the incorrect words. You can right click on the highlighted word to open up the menu of correct words suggested by the app’s built in spell checker.
As I had told you before in the intro to this article, the app allows you to sync your notes to your Microsoft OneNote account. You can do so via the control bar in the editor interface.
Once exported, you can choose to open up the OneNote interface. Once opened up, it will open in a snapped format.
You can see that the content has been synced successfully to OneNote! Do note that this is not possible if you don’t log in to the app, as the app needs access to your Microsoft id to sync content across to your OneNote.
THE TRANSLATOR INTERFACE…
In the main screen, if you choose to click on the heading Translate, you will be taken to the translator interface, where all you have to do is to type the text which you want to translate, highlight it and choose the language that you want to translate it to from the right side of the translator interface. Then, click on the Translate button at the top right. Below you can see the translator window opened up with sample text which I had written.
And here, you can see the translation process being completed!
This wraps the main features of ThinkNote for Windows 8.
ThinkNote is a pretty decent and well designed note taking app for Windows 8 and 8.1 which allows you to take down notes on your device. The app also allows you to sync them all to OneNote, which makes for an even better feature of the app!
