Fill in Gaps in Pear Note

If you ever find yourself zoning out during a meeting or class, only later to realize that you forgot to take notes for 20 minutes, Pear Note makes it easy to fill in those gaps. To do so:

  1. Open your Pear Note document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
  4. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
  5. Take notes on the part you missed.

Your new notes will be synced to the recording just as if you'd taken them live with the rest of your notes.

DealBITS Drawing: Rogue Amoeba's Fission

Send Article to a Friend

All too often we see products released with relatively basic feature sets, after which they evolve into powerful applications used by professionals. That leaves few choices for those who want a simple, focused program. Think about how that's happened with page layout, graphics, and Web authoring tools, as well as audio editing applications. That's why it's great to see programs like Rogue Amoeba's Fission, which is a simple audio-manipulation program that handles numerous audio formats and provides lossless editing of MP3 and - uniquely on the Mac - unprotected AAC files. Unlike high-end audio programs, Fission doesn't attempt to do everything; it focuses on helping you trim, split, and manipulate audio files for cleaning up podcasts, making ringtones, eliminating commercials from recorded radio shows, and more (for additional details, see "Fission Manipulates Audio Tracks of All Stripes," 2006-09-25). Also unlike high end audio programs, Fission doesn't come with a high price tag.

In this week's DealBITS drawing, you can enter to win one of three copies of Fission, each worth $32. Entrants who aren't among our lucky winners will receive a discount on Fission, so be sure to enter at the DealBITS page linked below.
