Evernote is a cloud based note taking system. A central store of notes is kept on Evernote’s servers and may be accessed via a special web client. Evernote also provide software clients for a myriad of platforms including Windows, Mac, Android, iPod/iPhone/iPad, Palm and Blackberry. Changes are synchronised from client to the cloud and vice versa (depending upon platform and account type in some cases).
Almost every day (and typically several times a day) I’ll enter data into Evernote and synchronise it across several devices. I have access to my information pretty much everywhere and from everything. This leaves my mind free to focus on more important things and not worrying about remembering every little thing - that’s all in Evernote.
Because Evernote is so versatile and useful and I use it so frequently, I have come up with a number of tips, tools and strategies to help me use the software.
