Evernote, The One Stop Depository of Lists, Notes, Web Pages, Snap Shots or Anything You Can Think Of!
Are you the kind of person that easily forgets things? Now what was I writing about? Oh yea, I remember now. This blog is about Evernote http://www.evernote.com/. It’s a free service to capture anything, be it to do lists, notes, web pages, snap shots or anything you can think of. You can use your PC (or Mac), desktop or laptop or your mobile phone to create your notes. You can also hand write your notes. You can take a picture using your camera, phone or webcam, take a clip of a web page, take a screen shot of your computer, scan whatever you want into Evernote, record audio or email notes directly into your account. Evernote will run everything through a recognition technology and then synchronize it across all your devices. The notes you add are arranged chronologically by the date and the time you created them but you have the option of changing the way they are appear in your notebook. Notebooks are the containers for your notes. You can have several notebooks. These notebooks can be local: which reside on your computer but do not get synchronized to the Evernote server, synchronized: which are synchronized to the web server but are only accessible by you or published: which can be viewed by the public but not edited. You can also tag your notes to organize them so that you can easily find them at a later date. When you do a search for your notes, you can save the search for later access. You can create notes by dragging a file directly onto a notebook name. The file types supported at this point are txt, html, jpeg, gif, wav and png. You can also email text and images directly into your Evernote account. Evernote is a free online method to get yourself organized. Just don't tell my wife.
