Taking notes from the web on the iPad

Recently, while dong a workshop on mobile learning, I had a participant who had just bought an iPad and was upset because he couldn't easily switch between a website he was reading and a word processing program. He wanted to do what many of us do on a desktop or laptop computer and copy paste sections and quotes or take notes.


After some research I found the Side by Side browser. This is a simple free app that you can download to your iPad (Sorry, no Android version) which allows you to have a browser window open in one half of the screen and a note taking app in the other half. You can type notes then send them to who ever you want or store them in DropBox.

Here's a short video tour.

This is a really useful app for those students with or wanting to develop their digital literacy and study skills to the iPad.

I hope you find Side by Side useful.
