Really useful software – Evernote

Over the next few weeks I will be posting articles on various applications and software that we have found to be really useful. Some will be relevant to home PC users, and others will be more geared up to the small businesses.

I will start off with an application that I use to capture notes, screenshots, and ideas.

Evernote is a free application designed for notetaking and archiving of information. A “note” can be a piece of formattable text, a full webpage or webpage excerpt, a photograph, a voice memo, plain text, a screen capture, or a handwritten “ink” note.  Notes can then be sorted into folders, tagged, annotated, edited, given comments, and searched.

Evernote supports a number of operating system platforms (including Android, OSX, Windows and WebOS), so will run on PC’s, Macs, and mobile phones, and offers online synchronization between all these devices and platforms. Use of the online server is free up to a certain monthly usage limit, with additional monthly use reserved for paying subscribers.

I find it is really good for capturing notes and then making them available in a searchable format.
