Google Docsdocs.google.com — provides a platform for online note-taking. This is one of our favorite ways to edit in a collaborative manner. It also works to sync across devices, to literally be on the same page, across devices and accounts.

Among the pluses – it automatically save documents without the need of a ‘save’ button. Google Docs can be used for private individual notes and public collaborative editing.
