Evernote includes a special blend of abundant features, a very cool layout, and near-limitless note variety. There's a reason everyone seems to sing its praises. It is a phenomenal productivity tool, no matter what you use it for.
This app saves notes along with anything you find on the Web, so you can read it later. It syncs to your online account, so you will have to sign up before you can get started. It offers unlimited storage, but your uploads can't exceed 60MB per month. That may not sound like a lot, but the app has all sorts of tricks in place to keep your storage count low. For example, Evernote can save Web sites as text lists and let you view them offline. If you take pictures in the app, you can tag them, share them with friends, or organize them to match your lists. The app doesn't offer any widgets by default, but you can download some to make it easier to get to your notes. All of your notes are presented in a clean layout, and even if the standard white-on-white style doesn't wow you, it does make the app really light on RAM.
Evernote gives you more ways than you can count to organize, share, and take notes. Since it syncs to a just-as-useful Web version, your notes can follow you wherever you want them to. There's really no better way to kick start your paperless lifestyle than with this app.
