411 Junkie’s Toolbox: Evernote

Apps are all the rage when it comes to your online life. It’s amazing to see just how dependent we’ve become on these mini programs. We have them on our phones, on our computers, on our mobile devices. But they are convenient, no?

As an information junkie, I can’t tell you how much I rely on these apps.

And as an information junkie, I heavily rely on Evernote.

Evernote is a note-taker’s dream. I use it for just about everything: school, blogging, book notes, research. You name it.

With Evernote, you can create different Notebooks and within that notebook you can create notes. This allows me to organize my blog posts, my study notes, my casual reading notes, and whatever else you can think of. I can add things like pictures, links, voice memos, and attachments to these notes. I can share these notes by email these notes and tag them for easier search. It’s amazing. It really is.

I can also access Evernote easily from all my devices. I have a MacBook, an iPhone, and a Kindle and I can use Evernote on all three devices with no problems.

If there is any complaint, the one minor thing I’d have to complain about is a formatting issue. If I copy and paste to a program like Pages or Word, it could loose it’s format. For me, this is really minor because you have that risk whenever you cross-platform something.

And the best part of it all? FREE! I used the free version for a while and was happy with it. I decided to upgrade to the Premium because I wanted to see the difference between the two. I can’t remember the difference between the two platforms exactly, but I remember thinking that $5/mo is a small price to pay monthly consider the benefits. I think it was because the layout is more mainstream as well as your notebooks are better organized. But, again, I was happy working with the free version and if you can’t spare the $5 per month, I think the free version works just fine.
