How to Get Started With Noted on Apple Watch

Great ideas can strike anywhere at any time. However, these ideas can go just as easily as they come. We tend to forget most of our thoughts so it only makes sense to capture them immediately, and that’s precisely what the Noted Apple Watch app is designed for.

What is Noted on Apple Watch

Noted Apple Watch app is your most reliable note-taking and idea-capturing companion. It offers a quick and easy way to take audio notes: just one tap on the Record button and you can start capturing your ideas using your voice. You can also add #TimeTags to your notes whilst recording, which will help you review the notes afterwards.

Once you finish recording, the audio notes are automatically transferred to your iPhone, where you can transcribe them into written notes – plus so much more.
