PowerNotes is a productivity tool that allows you to gather, organize, and track internet research easily and efficiently.

PowerNotes helps researchers make the leap from research to writing. First, the browser extension gives you the fastest way to save passages from the web, PDFs, and other digital materials. When you save a passage, you will also organize it and take notes. All saving will be done without leaving the source, so you won't need to copy and paste anymore! Also, the organizational structure is up to you. PowerNotes gives you a flexible organizational framework so that you can make the framework more sophisticated over time. So when you are doing research, you won't just be saving content, you will be creating an annotated outline at the same time. Everything that you gather will be saved in the Cloud. Once you've gathered your research, you can view an outline of your research in our web app, where you can assess and reorganize it. We built an interface specifically designed for reorganization. You can just drag and drop your digital note cards, move them around with a simple menu (again, no more copy and pasting), and create blank note cards to incorporate your own thoughts. You can even turn your research outline into a writing outline so that you can more easily start that first draft. You can download your research into a MS Word or Google Doc, a spreadsheet, or RIS file. For more information, visit our blog at: https://www.powernotes.com/resources/blog

Excellent app and overall very easy to use. My one major issue is that there's no way to collapse all your topics for a project without manually doing so one-by-one. This is especially annoying with when using the popup sidebar since there's no way to have the program auto-scroll down to a specific topic on your list. I want some kind of "expand/collapse all" command. Also, if you HAVE collapsed some topics and left others expanded for some specific reason, but then load a new tab and bring ... Show more
