Last year I used the application 'journler' to take notes using my macbook pro in lectures. It worked well as it allowed me to make folders for different classes and I was able to export all my notes to a folder on my computer and then time machine would back up the notes for me.

Im just having a look around to see if there are any better alternatives that i can use when I go back to university. I have been looking at evernote and I like the idea of being able to access my notes everywhere but I cant see a way to backup my notes locally.

Do you have any recommendations for me that I may find useful for my second year at university?

thanks

Wow, great topic, I'll probably be using Evernote when I head off to college in a few weeks, you can set the notes/notebook's to be either a Local or Synchronized notebook. I don't see a way to back them up Locally and have them sync.

Take a look at this one - although I've never used it, I've read some very positive things about it:

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Well just forgot that our University uses First Class, problem with that is, its a Web Based App, so I can't even get into the program to look at or work on notes when I'm offline. I guess its Microsoft Word/Text Edit for me.

I find the new word to be great, i use to use circus ponies but i find that word words much better. I just switch it to the notepad view which makes it much easier. Its like the mac version of One note
