Evernote: a fantastic tool for busy people!
As a busy entrepreneur and executive, I am constantly brainstorming ideas on technology, go to market strategies, and ways to improve our business. Additionally, I am voracious reader and I am constantly consuming information to advance my understanding of the world both professionally and personally. I was struggling - till I found evernote - to capture and organize my ideas and sync them across my various devices - in my case - a mac and iPhone. Evernote, therefore, is an application for mac’s, pc’s, and mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, Android) for the capturing of txt, images, & voice notes. It’s brilliant! Here is what I love about evernote:
- Easily capture txt, voice, and images on your mobile device or computer. When I have an idea, I simply open up evernote and type or speak away. My phone and computer are almost with me, so whenever an idea pops into my head, I can now capture it - no pen or paper required.
- Notebooks aka folders. After I create a note, I simply create or select the appropriate notebook and its now organized.
- Sync’s across my devices. I think I love this part the best. When I create a note or update an existing one on my iPhone, it automatically syncs to my computers desktop evernote application. This is just so handy! For example, I note that I started on my iPhone, can be completed or added to on my computer. Nice!
- Searchable. Notes in evernote are searchable! Even webpages and photos! Not only are the note titles and tags searchable, but the entire txt is searchable. Can’t remember exactly what the note was called? No problem, just enter your best recollection in the Evernote search bar.
- Webpage clips. I really really love this feature. Upon installing Evernote, you can clip portions of or entire web pages/articles into Evernote. I use this to clip articles that I want to read later on my iPhone when I have a few free minutes. This has proven to be an incredible productivity booster for me.
In summary, Evernote is a brilliant tool for brainstorming ideas both professionally and personally, cataloging thing of interest, and storing interesting articles for reading at a later time. Evernote works on Mac, PC, Android, Blackberry, iOS, Windows Phone 7, and Palm Pre devices. If you haven’t checked out Evernote yet, please visit www.evernote.com You’ll be so glad you did!
