Evernote

CNET 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.

    "A wonderful tool for my life I use on a daily basis."

    April 3, 2014  |   By QuickTrainAcademy

    Version: Evernote 5.1.2.2387

    Pros

    One of my favorite features on Evernote is that if I create a list on my desktop or my I-Pad, it can be synchronized to my phone so I can check off things, using the check box tool, as I find them. It was great to use at Christmas so I could see at a glance if I'd found something I'd been looking for.

    I also use Evernote Clipper on my desktop and IPad in my office and at home or on the road to clip articles I have seen on the internet for future reference. If I see an e-mail article from one of my networking groups, I can clip that, too, to share in our next meeting.

    I recently had a reason to contact Evernote support.for assistance in combining my two Evernote accounts. The people I contacted made the task so easy and it only took a matter of minutes to combine my duplicated accounts into one account so that I don't have to switch back and forth to see my work notebooks and my personal notebooks. They are merged together for easy access.

    Cons

    Evernote on a desk top is relatively easy to navigate compared to the mobile versions. The mobile versions are not as user friendly and sometimes I have to hunt around to find the function I need, such as deleting a note I no longer want.

    Summary

    Evernote Premium has even more great features for personal or business use. With the premium version, I am able to work with my mobile notebooks even if I have no internet connection. I am able to lock my account on my cell phone and IPad if I am on the road to keep prying eyes out. At work, I can share notes with the people in my office and allow them to edit the notes. Premium also gives you a lot more storage space allowing 100MB per note rather than the free capacity of 1GB per month.

    Excellent tool for business and home use and the price for a Premium subscription is well worth the expense to just be able to share with coworkers and family or friends.
