“I am very impressed with PowerNotes. What has most impressed me is the simplicity of the tool. I really love that the interface is built into how I am already seeing the sources. Reading documents and being able to highlight and simply immediately make a note and then organize them into how I want them. My prior method has always been to simply print off my articles and keep a four-inch binder with separations for each article. Needless to say, this is much easier and much more environmentally friendly.”
