I take my elephant everywhere!
This awesome free app is a must have if you make lists or reminders of any sort. I suggested it to my friend recently and it got me thinking about just how cool my “Elephant” is.
It is even in Wikipedia which describes it perfectly:
“Evernote is a suite of software and services designed for note taking and archiving. A “note” can be a piece of formatted text, a full webpage or webpage excerpt, a photograph, a voice memo, or a handwritten “ink” note. Notes can also have file attachments. Notes can be sorted into folders, then tagged, annotated, edited, given comments, searched and exported as part of a notebook”
Evernote will sync between all your devices. Most of us have our phone by our side 24/7 these days. This little app can make your time more productive, and never let a great idea slip by…tell your elephant, for they never forget!
My biggest tip for using Evernote is to add a tag to everything. As you start to make more notes and lists, tags will help you find what you’re after straight away. Failing that it will still search all words in all notes, so you are sure to find it eventually.
There are premium paid versions too that give you even more options, but the free version works just fine. Simply go to your app store and search for Evernote, or for your desk top go to evernote.com and download the version for you operating system.
