Google Notebook Alternatives / Replacements

Google Notebook has been a nice tool which allowed users to take notes and store web clippings online, however with the announcement of stopping development on Google Notebook has got many users to think about a switch to a alternative note taking application or service.


We do have a list of sticky pads which you can use for note-taking, however there are several other full-fledged replacements for Google Notebook which provide the same note taking features. We recommend our personal favorite Evernote to users as a worthwhile replacement for Google Notebook.

If you are looking for other alternatives, you can give a try to Zoho Notebook, we also have a tutorial that will help you import notes from Google to Zoho with ease.

There are quite a few other Google Notebook Alternatives/Replacements out there and Digital Inspiration has put up a list of web clipping softwares, that function and work pretty much like Google Notebook. Amit also has another interesting tutorial, where you can learn to move your web clippings out of Google Notebook.

The CEO World has also put up a amazing list of alternatives for Google Notebook, the list is pretty extensive and covers a large amount of replacements.

There are few other places where you can find information about Google Notebook alternatives/replacements.

So what is your favorite pick? Which note-taking software are you going to switch to? Do you have your personal favorites, you would want to recommend? Do let us know through your comments.

  • I keep thinging that Google may stumble a little at the top, but they keep innovating. And innovating in the right ways. I’ve seen little backlash to date. Kudos.

  • I’ve used Zoho, but when you use a few Google aps you tend to gravitate to all their stuff. Even if it’s not the best.

  • this is true. first it was their search engine, then their email, then google chat and google docs. the list keeps on growing.

  • Thanks for writing a post that directs me to useful and extensive lists. Sites like PC World and others list 3 or 4 Notebook alternatives and don’t give links to extensive lists.

  • I don’t know that this will be a big issue for a lot of people but if you read the Terms of Service for Evernote they own everything you submit to them.
    Google is still hands off in that department…

    iCyte (www.icyte,com) is a great alternative. Let’s you clip web pages, tag them, add notes. All are saved, and searchable. Great interface, intuitive and simple to use, but powerful search and annotation functions. Been using it for everyday stuff, as well as serious web-based research.

  • I was just reading the iCyte privacy policy and B4 I sign up and start using it, I wondered if anyone else thought it was a good thing to use.
    I was doing a little searching around first.

  • Google are being known as innovators, so I am pretty sure they will come up with something even better like they did all the time.

  • google keeps innovating and this is the most important aspect for a company who will lead the market for more than a while…
