Hadge Hughes is a therapist and a mindfulness coach from Brighton, United Kingdom. He is a jack of many trades—loves to write, draw, paint, play some soulful tunes in the piano and the guitar. Hadge is an early adopter of technologies. He started with a ‘Commodore 64’ years ago, moved on to an ‘Amiga 1200’, then to an iMac, an iPhone 6 and now an iPad Pro 12.9 with Apple Pencil.
He always had a journaling habit but when the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil were released into the market, he set about looking for a digital note-taking app he could adapt to. He wanted something that offered a realistic writing experience, close to his natural handwriting. Being an early adopter, he had tried out pretty much all the apps out there and finally chose Noteshelf 2! In his own words, “Noteshelf offers me almost everything I need and the handwriting experience is second to none.”
