Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Moms Voices program and have been provided with a wireless device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.
I recently went on a few media trips. Being away from my computer can be difficult for me though. Thankfully, I had my Note 3 with me while traveling this time. It truly is an office in my pocket!
While in New York, my Note 3 helped me out immensely. I wrote the address I was staying at in Action Memo and then hit the map icon. This brought up a map of where I was. I was then able to find a place for a late dinner! I wanted to add a contact to my phone so I wrote her number on the Action Memo and hit the contact icon. Easy Peasy! Finally, I wanted to send a quick email to someone that wasn’t in my contacts list. I wrote their address in the Action Memo and hit the email icon. It immediately came up for me to send an email.
As you can see, all of these revolve around my favorite feature of the Note 3, the Air Pen and Air Command.
When you pull the Air Pen (stylus) out of the bottom right corner of the Note 3, the Air Command pops up. This can also be brought up whenever you press the button on the pen. That little pop-up gives you a few options. Below you will find the image and then description of each feature:
This links your memo to an action. I used this while looking for addresses or businesses. I wrote in my address or phone number in the memo with the Air Pen. I was then able to “action” that by directly calling the number, mapping the address, or searching the web. You can also add someone’s email in a memo and then “action” it to email the person directly. This is great when you are without a pen/paper and need to jot something down. I use Action Memos often now for whatever I need to remember!
You can draw around in an area on the memo with the pen and collect it in Scrapbook. You can also use Scrapbook to save YouTube videos, videos you make, and more!
This takes a screen print of the image you are looking at and allows you to write on it and send, if you want to. This is perfect for those times you are looking at an image or document and want to suggest changes while away from your computer.
This allows you to search for content on your device and the web. You can even turn on location tags like Camera, S Note, Scrapbook, and more. This is great for those times that you have a document sitting on your phone somewhere but don’t have time to search for it. This allows you to find it quickly and easily.
When you choose this, a little pencil comes up. Use that to draw a rectangle on your screen. You then choose the app that you want to appear on the screen in that rectangle. App choices are the Calculator, Clock, YouTube, Phone, Contacts, ChatON, Hangouts, and Internet. You can move it around, minimize it, and even add more as needed.
S Note is something I have always loved with my Note 2. I used it when we were searching for a house by taking a picture and attaching it to a note with phone number, address, and any other details we may want to remember. But, it is better than ever now because you can automatically sync it to Evernote, which many people like to use to organize and act as a reminder of things that need to be done.
Can you think of ways the Note 3 and Air Command could help you?
