Great App for Taking Notes at Meeting (Android)

I just wanted to share this new app with the friends. It's called S-pen Recorder for Note 10.1 2014 and is available in the Samsung App store. It allows pdf hand written notes to be synced with recorded audio. You can also click a portion of your written text and the audio recorded at that moment will be played. This can be a valuable tool to take notes on our tablets at the meetings, assemblies, and conventions. Just click the portion of your written note and what the speaker was saying at that exact moment starts playing! Spen SDK must be installed from Google Play store or this app won't work. This is the 1st app on Android that I have seen that adds my most missed feature from Notability on my old Ipad. Glad it's available for our Galaxy Notes!

Hey Lloyd (also my first name), might I ask what your technique is for studying the Watchtower using the S-pen, if indeed that is what you use? 

 

When I use the S-pen to highlight and add notes to a Watchtower study article, when I am done and click "Save", all I seem to get is a separate png file. 

 

What I would like to be able to do is to end up with the complete study edition of the Watchtower highlighted and annotated with my notes, and then I'd throw it into Evernote to be able to reference that studied copy later.  It would also be nice to be able to click on or hover over a scripture and have it pop up when I'm studying, but that wouldn't be a "deal breaker" if I couldn't do that.

 

Goy any ideas?

 

Thanks!

I use Moon Reader to study my Watchtower. This is a good tutorial on its features. Importing EPubs into Moon Reader Pro: http://youtu.be/J6487t2z2lk

I don't know if this helps, but I use ezPDF Reader with the PDF magazines. You can annotate in every way imaginable, and then flatten all annotation layers so they are a permanent part of the document.

I also use it and you can even save the pdf with the annotations (no need to flatten) You can open later and edit the annotations or you can even email it and edit on other device

Wow!  That was a fantastic video.  Thanks so much for posting it.  Actually, I recently downloaded Moon Reader onto my tablet (Samsung Galaxy Pro 12.2 - I would have bought the 10.1, but the 12.2 was actually cheaper!), but I hadn't figured Moon Reader out yet.  You decreased my learning curve by like 9/10ths!

 

Anyway, that excellent reader does everything I want except for maybe the "writing notes" or annotating part to where those notes are visible in the margin along with the rest of the magazine page when we consider it at the meeting. 

I wonder if it's possible to use the S-pen to write notes in the margin of the Watchtower in Moon Reader?  Like I said earlier, whenever I use the S-pen to write notes and then click "Save", it simply turns the notes into a png that doesn't appear when a Watchtower is re-opened in Moon Reader.  But maybe I'm missing something or doing it wrong?

The world of tablets, and especially the Samsung S-pen is new to me. But I did in fact choose Samsung because it had the S-pen, thinking that I could somehow use it to write notes in the margins of Watchtowers as I studied them and then have them be visible in the Watchtower margins, like we did with the paper copies.  If I guess right, using ezPDF Reader as recommended by Dismal_Bliss and jayrtom [Thanks for your posts guys!] allows you to write visible notes in the margin, but then you lose the ability to see the scriptures "pop up", a big advantage of Moon Reader as was pointed out in the video.

So it makes me wonder if there isn't some app or format that would allow me to "have it all", if you'll pardon my greedy desires. 

1. Easily read the Watchtower

2. Easily highlight

3. Ability to make notes in the margin in my handwriting that are visible later at the meeting (without clicking on anything)

4. Have scriptures easily pop up

5. Ability to save the document in Evernote or OneNote or whatever, to be able to reference later.

 

That possible now?

Thanks!

Hello all,

 

I use Moon+ Reader Pro and I need to figure out how to delete book categories.  I was testing something and created categories which I will never use and now, I can't get rid of them. Please help before I lose my mind, I have over an hour into this.  THANK YOU!!!

Delete all the books that are in the category that you want to delete. When there are no books in a particular category, it should automatically disappear.

Thanks so much for your response Andre.  Unfortunately, these categories do not contain books and yet, they are not disappearing.  Worse still, I have discovered that I cannot move books to these categories.  I can move books to any other location by going to ALL BOOKS, highlighting the publication and then, go to ADD TO MY FAVORITES (select Category) and hitting OK.  They all work fine.

 

It's only these two categories that I giving me problems.  I can't add to them or delete them.  If it's a glitch, I'm afraid that if I uninstall and reinstall the program, I could lose everything.

You may check this below app. I had that same desire and this app solves the pop-up with the scriptures ;)
