Do you want a convenient way to access all your notes or memos from your iPad, iPhone or computer? With an internet connection and the Evernote App, you can do just that. I love this App and wanted to tell you more about it.
About a month ago, I wrote a post about Google Docs on iPad and Google Drive. Google Drive is great to handle and share documents among mobile and computer devices on the cloud. But sometimes, we just need notes to remember or keep track of things: a list for grocery shopping; a “To Do” list; minutes of meetings; voice memos; etc. This is how the Evernote App is both useful and ideal.
Evernote is available for iPad, iPhone, Windows, Mac, Android and more.
In this article I will explain some of the features of Evernote. If you are like me, you may end up saying goodbye to those little paper notes that are cluttering your home and office…
Why use Evernote?
The greatest thing about Evernote is that all your information is stored on the cloud. All your devices can synchronize and have access to this information as long as they can connect to the Internet.
This means you can start a note on your Mac, continue updating it on the iPad and be able to access it on the go with your iPhone.
Best of all, the Evernote App is free to download. To get started you will need to create an Evernote account which is also free.
Search for Evernote on the App store. Follow this post if you need to refresh how to download and install iPad Apps.
You can create new notebooks. Each one will have its own title and will store notes related to a certain topic. Notebooks can be shared with other people (read only with free account).
You can use notes to capture almost anything. From lists, to ideas, tasks, minutes of meetigs, audio memos, images and pictures.
Note: The free account only lets you see the note’s content while connected to the Internet.
Evernote comes with a powerful Search utility that lets you search by keyword and tags inside your notes.
Currently, Evernote charges $5 per month or $45 per year for the premium account.
Some of the features of the premium account are:
* 1GB uploads per month
* Access to offline notebooks
* Search attached PDFs and documents
* Work together –> Share notebooks and notes. Other users can edit your notes
* Note history –> Ability to view past versions of individual notes
