Catch - Capture Notes from Almost Anywhere

Catch is a service that allows you to create bookmarks, text notes, voice notes, and images anytime you're on the web. Catch offers browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. You can also use Catch on Android and iOS devices to save notes. Notes that you save to your Catch account can be just a simple link, a link with a note, an image that you capture on your phone, or voice message. The voice note feature is currently an Android-only option. Notes can be shared with others or kept private. Catch allows you to organize your notes with hashtags.

Applications for Education
I often get ideas for a lesson while not near a computer. Services like Catch allow me to capture those ideas on my phone. Later when I get to a computer I'll expand upon my idea. Students who work the same way, might find Catch to be a handy tool for capturing their ideas whenever they get them.
