I love Evernote. It’s one of my favorite apps. Ever. Kinda like Apple stuff, it just works. Plus it syncs on all of my devices – tablet, phone, desktop computer, laptop. Everything. Everywhere. And I like that.
In addition to being able to write notes, blog posts, letters, emails and anything else I want to write in it, I can save screenshots (via their Skitch tool), save clips from the web including PDF’s and other docs as well as emails, office docs and file attachments. AND I can even create lists and spreadsheets when I need them. It also has tons of integrations – IFTTT, Zapier, UberConference, Pocket, Mailplane (another one of my absolute fav, must-have apps) and many more.
Why don’t I just use the Apple Notes app?
Well, one very particular reason – it doesn’t support tags. And I find it easier to tag things for search purposes than relying on keywords. PLUS – I can share notes or even whole notebooks with anyone I want simply and easily with Evernote. There’s also a built-in chat which makes collaborating with others super easy.
Evernote simply keeps everything I need clean and organized.
What else does Evernote do?
- Turns notes into presentations (VERY handy!)
- Annotate PDF’s
- Scan and digitize biz cards
- Scan and digitize hand-written notes on regular paper (they’re even content searchable!)
- Record voice notes
- Drag and drop anything onto a new note to save it for later
Simply put – Evernote is a powerhouse!
