What are tags for?

Tags give your notes context and meaning. The main advantage of tags is the fact there can be many of them for a note (unlike a folder) and it's easier to categorize them that way. For instance, a note titled "Recipe of a vegetable salad". You can put it in the Food folder, but you can also add tags - vegetables, salad, tomatoes, cucumbers etc.
