One of my favorite (not new but improved) applications for your Mac, iPhone and iPad is the updated version of Evernote. Evernote just released a new more user friendly version for the Mac this week and it is a wonderful upgrade to what has always been a very good program.
What is Evernote? Well Evernote does some really cool basic things for creating notes for yourself and for organizing them in away that is easy to work with. Here are some of the main features of Evernote:
Keep everything in sync
With Evernote, all of your notes, web clips, files and images are made available on every device and computer you use.
Remember things you like
Save everything cool and exciting you see online and in the real world. Snap a photo, record some audio and save it.
Save favorite webpages
Save entire webpages to your Evernote account with our nifty web clipper browser extensions. You get the whole page: text, images and links.
Collect information from anywhere into a single place. From text notes to web pages to files to snapshots, everything is always at your fingertips.
Work with friends and colleagues
Share your notes and collaborate on projects with friends, colleagues and classmates.
Plan your next trip
Keep all of your itineraries, confirmations, scanned travel documents, maps, and plans in Evernote, so you’ll have them when you need them.
The best feature of Evernote is how well it syncs with you iPhone, iPad or Android devices. Everything you store in your Evernote account is automatically synced across all of your devices, making it easy to capture, browse, search and edit your notes everywhere you have Evernote. My favorite way to use Evernote is to take pictures with my iPhone and then write down information about the picture I just took and I can add some voice memos with it as well. An example of this was my last couch shopping experience. I was able to take photos of some couches, then make notes on the photos and add some voice memos about pricing and manufacturers. Evernote is an awesome way to organize a project you are working on. There are 12 different programs in the Evernote suite of applications and each one has a different specialty that makes it unique. I strongly recommend looking at Evernote and all of the applications it offers to see if any of them can simplify your life or add some fun to how you currently do things.
