By now almost everyone knows about the bullet journal. It’s a great system for planning, getting ideas onto paper and out of your head, and just organizing your life.
Probably the most popular tools for bujo users are the following:
Pens & Highlighters
But in my journey through the Tumblr bullet journal/studyblr communities, I found someone doing it quite a different way.
User StudyAndGoHigherToday posted a screenshot of digital notes they made on their iPad. As a new iPad owner at the time, I wondered if it’d be possible to bullet journal with the device in a similar fashion. The answer: Yep!!
I wound up using a slightly different medium for my bujo’ing.
They used NotesPlus, which is a $7.99 app I didn’t really want to shell out for just to test. I found a comparable app called Penultimate, from the makers of Evernote. It’s completely free. Plus, if you have an Evernote account (you should!) it backs up all of your notes automatically.
They also said they’re using a Wacom stylus – I got the Apple Pencil with my device, so I just use that, but whatever works, works!
Here’s some screenshots of my current setups:
