Evernote is a cross-platform, freemium app designed for note taking, organizing, and archiving. It really starts to show its brilliance once you start using it as your default bookmark/webclip app, notetaker, recipe box, repository of all your reference material, and so on. It’s great to have ALL the information you need indexed and searchable across every single platform you have.
Here are a few examples of what you could do.
Evernote’s web clipper extension allows you to bookmark and save an article and to make notes on an article, or save it with other related notes on that project.
Evernote manages a multitude of notes easily thanks to notebooks, tags, and note links.
Evernote helps you to keep track of your TODOs and keep track of your project.
You can filter out your notes based on the tags and see related stuff.
Here’s other staff you could do:
- Business cards (which become searchable with Evernote’s optical character recognition)
- Recipes and restaurant recommendations (see also: Evernote Food)
- Code snippets or other reference material
- Receipts and serial numbers for your big purchases
- Archive whiteboard notes from your meetings or brainstorming sessions(again, all of which become searchable through Evernote)
- iOS or Android “themes” that you like, if you’re a home screen customization fanatic
