Summarized request (read below if you want more background detail): Please share your favorite program/app for writing (typing) and tracking notes (physically on paper is probably not for me) and specifically your experience/thoughts with Google Docs would be appreciated.
I have posted a few other topics as I have been working on nailing down my preferred note-taking/reporting process. I think I have quickly determined that audio-recording my observations/thoughts as I'm observing is much preferred over writing stuff down - I don't have to take my attention away from observing and I was even able to record my thoughts on my drive home this weekend from the local observatory public-night.
So I am using Google Recorder on my phone to record. I didn't really do any research there; it was already on my phone and it transcribes the audio into text (while maintaining the audio recording). It seems like a really good app but I'm also open to suggestions of other recording apps/programs...
I now have 4 nights of recordings and need to start organizing some of this on "paper" but think there are a lot of options in terms of the available apps and programs and would like to start with a good one that I could use for a long time (as opposed to jotting things down in the first program that comes to mind, not liking it, transferring to a different program, repeat). The very first thing that came to mind was just tracking in Excel and creating a table based on constellation or something to track favorite targets, best observation times/conditions, random notes, etc but figured there's no way that's a good option and would get out of hand very quickly.
After some brief research I'm just leaning toward Google Docs as I think I will have a lot of options/freedom to format my notes. Any thoughts on Google Docs or other favorite programs would be appreciated. The one worry I always have with any Google product is that they are always changing, renaming, or just straight up abandoning their programs/apps.
