The best note-taking apps to use in 2018 — The Vergewww.theverge.com
You might want a note-taking app as an artist, to take notes during a meeting to remember important feedback, or to jot down insights from a meaningful panel. Maybe you’re a celebrity who needs to publish a public apology to social media, and you need more space than a typical post affords. Often, we don’t give much thought to which app we’re using. It’s either the first app that’s available or the one everyone says is good.

Cool Tech of the Week

Before I name a product Cool Tech of the Week, I have to actually use it for a period of time (or have used it in the past) and I have to know that it is a solid product.

This week’s Cool Tech is Vooplayer. I’ve been using Vooplayer since March this year as a replacement for Wistia (which I still like very much but they have gotten pricey).

What I like most about Vooplayer is their hybrid video model. You can upload and host your videos on Vooplayer and take advantage of all their security protection and advanced features OR you can host your videos somewhere else, like pCloud, Amazon S3, or even YouTube, and still leverage the majority of Vooplayer features like player branding, call to actions, conversion tracking and more.

I’ve been on a mission to get Vooplayer supported by many of the other tools we talk about here at Tech Smart Boss (which I use daily), and so far Vooplayer embeds are now supported at AcademyOcean, SupportHero, Story Chief, and the list is growing.

If you are looking for a powerful, affordable, and ever improving video hosting and marketing tool, check out Vooplayer, our Cool Tech of the Week.
