Evernote – Every Time to Organize Everything

Well, almost everything.

Several years ago I started using Evernote on an occasional basis to save bits of information I ran across on the web. As time went on, I found that I was using it continually. For those times when you’re surfing the web and you find websites that you’d like to go back to  but don’t want to bookmark them, or those articles that have a quote you want to copy but don’t want to open notepad or a word processor to copy it to, or, in my case, fixes for different computer ailments that I need to keep handy, Evernote is the program to use. It’s compatible with Windows and the Mac.

With Evernote, capture what you like, find it when you want.

Things to capture:

  • Tasks and to-dos
  • Notes and research
  • Web pages
  • Whiteboards
  • Business cards
  • Scribbles
  • Snapshots
  • Wine labels
  • Even Twitter messages

And then find them all any time across all the computers and devices you use. And it’s free.

How to get stuff into Evernote

Memorable stuff is always happening, so we’ve created lots of ways for you to get that stuff into Evernote:

Create: Create new notes using desktop, web, and mobile versions of Evernote

Snap: Take a snapshot using your camera phone or webcam. We’ll even recognize the text in the image.

Clip: Clip entire webpages, screenshots, and just about anything else you can copy

Drag-and-Drop: Drag and drop content into the desktop clients for Mac and Windows

Email: Email notes directly into your account using your personalized email address

Scan: Scan receipts, recipes, tags, brochures, and anything else into Evernote

Record: Record audio wherever you are and listen to it whenever you want

Tweet: Send Twitter messages into Evernote by following @myEN

You can even install Evernote on a flash drive and take it with you. I highly recommend this program and once you start using it, you’ll find it invaluable as well.
