Isabella Kwai has “disturbingly agile millennial thumbs” because she prefers to use Apple Notes instead of pen and paper. Ms. Kwai is a New York Times reporter and writes about her technology.
I still keep a notebook on hand that I’ll occasionally use. But to be honest, I have atrocious handwriting, and deciphering it is arduous. Instead, I use the Notes app. I find it easier to write up thoughts and notes that way — though once, it did freak out a source, who asked me how I was able to type and look her in the eye. (Disturbingly agile millennial thumbs is how.)
I love reading about the tech other people use in their work and personal lives. I’m a big user of Apple Notes with close to 1,000 notes, although my thumbs aren’t very agile.

One thought on “How This New York Times Reporter Uses Apple Notes for Her Job”
I agree. I love notes. I started using it for, well, notes. Visual impressions for writing. Story ideas. Snippets of poetry. Then I discovered I could copy and paste things into it, like links to tames in the AppleStore. That’s where my “I want it” list is. Then I realized I could dictate into it and it would convert that to text. I love how I can share a note I make on my iPad at 2:00am and it will be on my phone the next morning. I find I’m doing more and more stuff with it. For a long time I had my to-do list on Notes.
