Compare the top team note taking apps from Box, Dropbox, and Samepage

Create great things together

These note taking apps are designed with one goal in mind - creating great things together. Each app has the ability to create multi-media documents with colleagues anywhere in the world. Start digging in though, and you'll find that they all have different spins and workflows.

Note taking vs. Work

It takes teams to make the best content. It also takes organization. The best apps do more than just help teams create notes and documents, they help teams divide and track work. So no matter where your team is located, you know things are heading in the right direction.
