Editors' Review


Functional and useful, Evernote goes beyond its architecture and is also interesting. It's a true three-platform play: it works very well, and somewhat differently, on desktop computers, mobile phones, and over the Web. Evernote is a good note-taking application. If you have the Evernote application running on your camera phone, it will automatically upload your snapshots to the Evernote server, creating a useful archive of them. But the killer feature is that it also does OCR on your images so you can find them later by searching for text in them. Use this tool to snap pictures of products you see in stores and want to remember, to grab whiteboards in meetings, and to take pictures of people with name tags at conferences. It's one of those utilities that might just change your life.

Everything you do on your phone and on your computer gets synchronized to your Evernote account on the Web. Since it synchronizes as soon as you log on, and regularly thereafter, reinstalling the software or losing data because of a crash are nonfatal problems. Do note that the Web-based text editor isn't keystroke compatible with the PC-based editor. It makes switching between the two experiences confusing. The free version offers 40MB per month for uploading and unpredictable OCR performance, while $45 a year gets you a 500MB a month allowance, priority OCR, better security features, and support.

"Incredible cross-platform synchronized note-taking tool"

November 14, 2008  |  By scottgsmith62

 |  Version: Evernote


The killer feature is that the application is synchronized across mulitple platforms - This is only serious note-taking tool that will work equally well on a Windows machine, a Mac, an iPhone or Windows Mobile. No one else is doing this.


The only things I can think of that I would like to change or see done different:
1. I'd like it to run on Macs older than 10.5... I have 10.4 at home and I can't use it there.
2. I'd a little beefier support for tasks and how those are handled.


I really enjoying using the application, and these folks have done something that no other company has done to date; create a solid cross-platform application that synchronizes across mulitple platforms, as well as supplying a free version to boot. The application really is in a class of it's own because of these things... now I wish I could run it on my old Mac at home too.

"Great general purpose tool for work and play"

November 06, 2008  |  By sbumgarn9

 |  Version: Evernote


This is a really good web clipping application - I wish I had this around the last 10 years. I've been using it for about 3 months now and find it to be a pleasure. It's ability to keep multiple file formats is great and I like the storage capacity.


Needs to have the ability to render web pages more as they appear in your browser.


Great app for saving a wide variety of stuff and great at sycing across multiple computers. Love it
