As part of a conversation with our Masters students about their dissertation projects the topic/idea of using tablet/ phone apps as field diaries or notebooks… I remember some coming out a few years ago, which seem to have mostly fallen by the wayside, like “Field Notes App” (which still has screenshots from pre-iOS 7)
This is not something I have really engaged in as a late-comer to smart phones (yes, really) and not exactly the most successful bidder for research funding…
I wanted to ask the few folks who read this – do you use anything like this? If so, what? and can you provide any links or info? Please do use the comments section below.
@samkinsley Hi Sam, ArcGIS Collector used in Exe BSc fieldtrips, incl Iceland and Culm – geotag photos + notes within the app and shared in groups 🙂

@samkinsley I currently use Evernote – it allows for multimedia fieldwork notes on multiple devices (and syncs to a desktop for later analysis)
