Suggested January 2024 Visual Notes – 6 Apps To Organize Thoughts On Ipad

The iPad is a visual tool. And with its retina display, it’s meant to be seen with great visuals. Apple didn’t add this spectacular display so that we could read; they added it so we could view it. So why type your notes in plain text?

That’s all you will get with the built-in Notes app provided with iOS, just plain text. While that does serve the purpose, the iPad can do so much more than just allow you to view plain text, so why not use it that way? The following is a list of six apps that will help you organize your thoughts with visual notes on an iPad.

1. Curator – Visual Notes

Curator lays out your thoughts in blocks. It is narrow to a certain extent, as it only allows for a five-by-five grid and only works in portrait mode. It is so visual that the best way to utilize the features of the app is to organize something such as a Christmas wish list or an article with lots of research. It’s best with websites and photos and limited text. Simple to use, working with drag and drop in your visual notes allows you to manipulate your ideas and thoughts into place.

2. Penultimate

The best part about Penultimate is that it’s part of the Evernote app family, allowing it to sync with your Evernote account. This means you will have your notes on all your devices, as Evernote can be accessed from your computer or your iOS device. It will work in both portrait and landscape mode, yet the “notebook paper” background does not move to landscape, so notes need to be written on a blank page or graph paper if you’re looking for landscape. Additionally entire sections can be moved with copy and paste around the page or even between pages. Penultimate will also work with a search command on your handwriting, but will not work with mine, meaning my handwriting must be really bad. You can add photos along with handwriting and drawings as well.


3. Springpad

What makes Springpad unique is that it can save several different types of items, and not just notes, photos, and links, but also television shows, movies, books, music, recipes, checklists, and more. You can build different notebooks that hold different items. One of them could hold the movies and TVs that you want to remember to watch. Another can hold your recipes and shopping lists. Another can hold your notes for a meeting along with links to websites to look up when the meeting is complete. If you save a product, a movie, recipe, or similar, it will look it up for you and will give you reviews of the movie, as many recipes as it can find for a certain food item, or tell you where you can buy the product you are desiring. You can also make your “Springs” public or private and follow others’ Springs as well, much like Pinterest.


It’s sticky notes for the digital age. At first glance it might seem like the old Sticky Notes app on Mac, but it’s much more versatile for working with those visual notes. You can have different notebooks and can fill them with both notes and pictures. Instead of having a yellow post-it note that will stick to most surfaces, you can have notes on different colored “paper” and with different fonts and colored “inks.” It’s a simple app, but sometimes that’s all you need.

5. Popplet Lite

Popplets are like square bubbles. You can build a whole thought process with popplets. New popplets can be added and connected in any direction to follow your thoughts. You can add text, images, or drawings and change colors of the Popplets, as well as change the size and orientation of the type. There are more options in the paid version, but at the very least this free version gives you the option of trying the app for awhile before having to purchase it.

Popplet Lite

6. SimpleMind+

SimpleMind+ is much like Popplet, but more involved. Unlike Popplet, though, it doesn’t have the control of font size and orientation. Drawing another comparison to Popplet, to get more features, you have to buy the full version. These features are as mundane as color choice and as necessary as the option to add photos. There is also a desktop version for both Mac and Windows that allows you to view and edit your visual notes on all platforms. The free version is still very usable, but if you want the better features, you can always try before you buy.



There are so many different note-taking apps for iOS. There’s not reason to narrow yourself own to just one app that you keep on your iPad. Keep as many as you need for taking notes, whether they are visual notes or more straight text. These six apps laid out above are great choices for your visual notes depending on your need.

How To Organize Music Library On Your Pc

Of the innumerable files (and other data) we have stored on our PCs, a very large number contribute to our digital music collection. Granted, with the ever increasing popularity of music streaming services, not many users download music for offline listening, but there are still many people (including this author) who love to create their own libraries of hard-to-find songs, bootleg recordings, and stuff like that.

Good news, it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s actually pretty easy to organize music library, by just adding “tags” to the tracks in your collection. And there are multiple ways of doing it. But before we get to that, let’s read a bit more about these tags.

What are Music Tags?

In the simplest of words, Music tags (popularly known as ID3 tags), are a means for embedding additional identifying information to the digital music files (e.g. MP3 tracks). A standard specification, ID3 tags were primarily meant for MP3 format files only, but are now used with many other audio file types, like AIFF and WAV.

How to tag your music library, and organize it better?

Broadly speaking, there are two ways of adding identifying tags to the tracks in your music library. Both of these are briefly outlined below, along with their usage cases:


Automatic Method

The “Automatic” method of adding ID3 tags involves using special software programs that scan the music files for any existing identifying information (e.g. artist name) that they might be having, and reference it with online CD information databases (e.g. Discogs, Gracenote, MusicBrainz) for the the missing details (e.g. album name, genre). Once a match is found, the software can automatically add tag information to the music files. Using this method is preferred if you have a large music collection (spanning thousands of songs), comprised of music from well known artists.

1.1 Automatic method illustration: MusicBrainz Picard

Although there are many applications that can look up identifying track information on online databases and add it to music files, MusicBrainz Picard is probably the best. The free and open-source application can not only retrieve metadata using existing tag information of songs, but also through their acoustic fingerprints. Thus, MusicBrainz Picard can work even for tracks that have no existing metadata at all. To get tag information, it hooks into the MusicBrainz open-content music database, which catalogs information about 1 million artists, and 15 million recordings.

1.2 How to use MusicBrainz Picard to automatically tag music files?

Step 1: Add the music files (or the folders having them), and use the Lookup CD button on the toolbar to have the software connect to MusicBrainz database. You can also use the Scan button to look up information using the acoustic fingerprints of the songs.

The above mentioned steps only outline the basic working of MusicBrainz Picard. However, it’s a powerful application that can do a lot more. It can even be enhanced using a variety of plug-ins, which add functionalities such as the ability to use tags from chúng tôi genres, and fetching cover art from numerous online sources.


Manual Approach

As the name suggests, the “Manual” approach requires you to look up information about individual songs on the Internet, and add it to the songs manually, using one of the many tag editor applications available for the same. It goes without saying, it’s quite a time consuming method, and should be used if your music library only has a few hundred of songs. However, this can be helpful for tagging music from lesser known artists, as the online databases (mentioned in the previous point) normally don’t have information regarding their albums and work.

2.1 Manual approach illustration: MP3tag 2.2 How to use Mp3tag to manually tag music files?

Step 2: Find the metadata information for a track on the web. This is as simple as typing in the song’s name in Google, and you’ll get everything from the artist name to genre. Other than that, you can also visit online CD information databases (e.g. MusicBrainz), or even Wikipedia. To get album artwork, you can use either Google’s image search, or websites like AllCDCovers. Once you’ve found the information regarding the song, simply add it via Mp3tag, and hit the Save button. Here’s a screenshot:

VSpatial is about the closest app to a real-life JARVIS that exists. It allows users to create an infinite number of virtual desktops and virtual monitors. There are also a host of screen-sharing features that let you show your coworkers precisely what you’re doing.

Do you work in a creative-focused field? Gravity Sketch works like a scaled-down CAD program that allows you to create 3D models within VR, capture concept art, and much more. It’s an excellent way to depict your creations within a virtual whiteboard or set them against a background to visualize the result better.

Gravity Sketch offers six different creation tools and three geometry types: Mesh, NURBS, and SubD. Unlimited layers, custom environments, and much more are available to you. Best of all, it’s a free platform. Try it out and see if it’s right for you.

The Horizon Workrooms beta is a way of bringing remote teams back together from anywhere in the world. You set up a “room,” just a virtual office, and your coworkers’ avatars can sit across from you. You can bring images and resources into the virtual space, display them on the whiteboard, and even connect remotely to your computer.

While Horizon Workrooms still has room for improvement, it’s off to a great start. The ability to join meetings through a video call on your mobile device if you don’t have VR makes it accessible for everyone. It’s the promise of the Metaverse rolled into an app, and you can even enable passthrough just enough to see your keyboard, making for a mixed reality experience. Horizon Workrooms is also designed to work with hand tracking for better productivity.

Noda is a brainstorming app that tries to create the sensation of standing inside your own mind. You create “nodes” – individual points of interest from which you can branch. For example, you could create a node for “nouns.” From that node, you make three branching nodes for “person,” “place,” and “things.” Then from the “person” node, you create more branches for “George Washington” and “Barack Obama.”

The good news is that the free plan gives you enough of an idea of how the app works to determine if it’s the right choice for you or not.

When it’s still somewhat iffy to spend a lot of time in coffee shops, many people miss the experience. Immersed places you in a completely virtual workspace while giving you access to multiple virtual screens, along with the ability to bring your keyboard into VR.

It’s perfect for solo work, but you can also use Immersed to interact with your team in a real-time conference room. Multiple monitors are a fantastic way to see more information at once. Immersed is a free application, but you can pay for the Elite version to access a larger workspace with more screens and whiteboards.

ShapesXR is designed for collaboration with your team – specifically, for pitching 3D ideas and models in an easier-to-understand way. This tool is handy for VR and AR content designers, and it also works with multiple game engines so you can explore immersive content in its concept form.

While not as detailed as something created in Maya or Unity, ShapesXR lets you lay the groundwork. You can then export from VR, through the Web, and with plugins. It’s ideal for early planning. ShapesXR is free, but there are in-app purchases you can invest in to expand its functionality and capabilities further.

If you plan to be in virtual reality for long periods, you might want to invest in a more comfortable head strap and an additional battery. Consider a Bluetooth keyboard that works within VR, too – one with low latency to prevent typing errors.

In-app integrations make it easy to use your favorite tools, even if they’re exclusive to Apple or Microsoft, without ever leaving your VR space. Moreover, many of these tools work cross-platform, so it doesn’t matter what your VR platform of choice is. Whether you use the Meta Quest 2 or something like the HTC Vive, you can still work together with people across the globe.

Visual Look Up Not Working On Iphone? 7 Ways To Fix It

One of the newest features to arrive on iOS is Visual Look Up, which is Apple’s way to take on Google Lens, helping users recognize the kind of object that’s been captured in a photo. Unlike Google Lens, the Visual Look Up function doesn’t need a standalone app as it is accessible directly from the Photos app on your iPhone. 

If you’re unable to see or use this new Visual Look Up option inside the Photos app, then the following post should help you figure out a way to get it to work. 

What is Visual Look Up on iOS 15?

With iOS 15, Apple released a new Visual Look Up feature inside the Photos app on iPhones. What Visual Look Up does is use machine learning to identify objects from pictures you’ve saved and provide you with more information about them. The feature can be used not only to recognize the object but you can only find the exact type or category it falls into. 

For instance, when you summon Visual Look Up on a picture with a dog, it won’t just show you that it’s a dog but will also try to identify the breed of dog and more info on it. For now, the feature can be used to pin down pets, landmarks, plants, and artworks but we can expect support for more objects in future updates to the Photos app. 

Visual Look Up resides in the same location inside the Photos app as your other picture info, meaning you can access it using the ‘i’ button when viewing a picture. This ‘i’ button will look different for pictures that support Visual Look Up as its icon will be surrounded by stars.

How to fix Visual Look Up not working issue in 7 Ways

If you’re unable to see or access the Visual Look Up function on your iPhone, you can check the following fixes to get the feature to work. 

Fix #1: Know how Visual Look Up works

Visual Look Up is a new feature that’s available inside the Photos app on iOS 15. So, before you go ahead and check if it works, make sure you’ve updated your iPhone to iOS 15. To use Visual Look Up on iOS, open the Photos app on your iPhone and select a photo that supports Visual Look Up.

You can check if a picture supports Visual Look Up by looking for the Visual Look Up button which is indicated by an ‘i’ icon with stars. If the picture doesn’t support it, you will only see the regular ‘i’ icon with no stars. For searching objects within an image on your Photos library, tap on this Visual Look Up button.

This will load up additional info on your screen. For pictures that support Visual Look Up, you’ll see a Look up section under the caption section and you’ll also see the type of object that has been detected by iOS. In this instance, you can see that the image we have on the iPhone is marked as “Dog”. To get more details and similar results based on the image, you can tap on this Look Up section.

A new popup screen should appear showing you Siri Knowledge (more info about the detected element), similar web images, and suggested websites based on the object found in your picture. In this instance, Visual Look Up shows the possible breed of the dog and pictures of similar-looking doggos found across the web. 

Here’s another example of Visual LookUp detecting the kind of plant that’s been captured on a photo.

Fix #2: If you don’t reside in the US

Visual Look Up is natively available for all iPhone users who reside in the US. However, there’s a workaround to using this feature from outside the US by simply changing your region to “US” inside your iPhone’s settings. For this, open the Settings app on your device and go to General.

Inside General, select Language & Region.

On the next screen, tap on Region. 

From the list of regions that appear next, select United States. 

You can now open the Photos app and check if the Visual Look Up button is available for supported pictures.

Fix #3: Check if your iPhone supports it

Visual Look Up isn’t just available for the latest iPhones but you can also access it on older iPhones but it all depends on whether the hardware inside your device is powerful enough to run it. Apple says all iPhones powered by its A12 Bionic chip or newer chips will be able to use Visual Look Up inside the Photos app. 

iPhone XR, XS, XS Max

iPhone 11 series

iPhone SE (2023)

iPhone 12 series

iPhone 13 series

iPad 8th generation or newer

iPad mini 5th generation or newer

iPad Air 3rd generation or newer

iPad Pro 11-inch or newer

iPad Pro 12.9-inch 3rd generation or newer

Fix #4: Turn on “Show in Look Up” for Siri

Since Visual Look Up is a machine learning tool, it relies on Siri to get suggestions based on content on your phone. It’s thus important that Siri has access to on-device learning for you to be able to use Visual Look Up inside the Photos app. Although this option is enabled when Siri is activated, you should make sure it is turned on to get better suggestions for your pictures. 

To enable on-device learning for Siri, open the Settings app and go to Siri & Search.

On the next screen, enable the Show in Look Up toggle under the ‘Content from Apple’ section. 

Now, check if Visual Look Up is active inside the Photos app. 

Fix #5: Check your internet connection

In that case, simply connect your device to the nearest Wi-Fi network or enable cellular data so that Visual Look Up can be used straight away. 

Fix #6: Check if the picture is clear and centered

Although Visual Look has been touted by Apple as powerful enough to scan for objects at any different condition, it may still run into some issues if the object in question isn’t clear for the machine learning to read. 

So, to make sure the Photos app detects an object present in a picture, the object needs to be visible clearly and easily distinguishable from other parts of the picture. For this, you need to ensure that the picture captures the whole of an object without any kind of motion blur or improper lighting.

It’s also important that the object is centered or positioned close to the center and the camera’s focus is set on the object and nothing else. If there are multiple objects in the frame, the object you want to be recognized should have a clear focus. 

Fix #7: Understand that Visual Look Up has its limitations

Visual Look Up is a new feature on iOS and like any new tool that relies on machine learning, it has its flaws. For firsts, it doesn’t work with everything – there are several objects you may not be able to use Visual Look Up with. Currently, you cannot use Visual Look Up to scan inanimate objects. This means you cannot scan for items you wish to buy from your camera roll or dishes you’ve captured on your iPhone. For now, you can only look for different breeds of dogs, plant types, landmarks, and art. 

Even with the limited support for scannable objects, the results are hit and miss. In our testing, the Photos app was able to categorize objects appropriately but was unable to point to the right type/kind within a category.

For instance, scanning a picture with a Buddha status yielded an inaccurate result about the location of the landmark, and pictures that were suggested weren’t similar-looking but similarly themed. 

The same statue went undetected by Visual Look Up in the next shot as shown in this screenshot where you can see that there’s no ‘i’ icon with stars. 

Besides this, the feature becomes inaccessible when there are multiple objects that can be scanned in a picture. If the picture you captured has a bunch of detectable objects, then Visual Look Up may be able to pinpoint the objects but you won’t be able to see detailed results based on them. 

As is the case with machine learning, we can expect these limitations to go away as the feature gains more functionality over time. 

Still cannot use Visual Look Up? Try Google Lens instead

If none of the above fixes help you use Visual Look Up on your iPhone, it’s time to consider an alternative to the feature, and what better than Google Lens? Google’s visual recognition has been in existence since 2023 and is powerful enough to recognize any worldly object you throw at it. Unlike Visual Look Up, you can use Google Lens to detect objects from pictures you have already captured or recognize items as you scan them in real-time. 

Although Google Lens is available as a standalone app on Android, it’s embedded right into the Google app on iOS. So if you already have the Google app installed for searching and looking at news/weather, you don’t need to install another app to get Google Lens on your iPhone. To start using Google Lens, open the Google app and tap on the Camera icon on the search bar at the top.

First-time users will be prompted with a welcome screen. Here, tap on Open camera to go ahead. 

When Google asks you access to your iPhone’s camera, tap on Ok. 

You will now see the viewfinder screen for Google Lens appear. If you don’t have an existing picture of the object you want to scan, then you can point your iPhone’s camera to this object and then tap on the Search button. 

If you have a photo whose elements you want to scan using Google Lens, tap on the Picture icon. 

From your photos library, select the photo you want to search. 

Google Lens will now upload your photo and search for relevant results across the web. When the search is complete, you should see details about the object like its name and kind inside the Search tab. 

You can swipe up the Search tab to view more info of the object along with other “Visual matches”, that show similar images as yours.

In addition to this tab, you can also search for more results inside other sections. For instance, tapping on the Shopping tab will yield you products that you may buy based on the detected object. Similarly, the Places and Dining tabs will show you a list of locations or restaurants you can go to see or get the item you’re looking for respectively. 

That’s all you need to know about fixing Visual Look Up not working on iOS 15.
