Editors' Review

Evernote for BlackBerry lets you upload a text note, voice clip, picture, or file to your cloud-based Evernote account through its attractive, signature green interface. Simply scroll with the track ball to move through the four notetaking icons on the start screen, or pop down to the bottom to search a note by its tag. Pressing the Menu key reveals options to view recently-created notes, notes pending uploading, and an option to activate GPS.

The application's performance depends heavily on how strong the data connection is. On a weak data or Wi-Fi network, loading your history of notes could test your patience, but on a fast connection, the notes you may have taken on the desktop, Web, or other smartphone are easy enough to browse or search by tag. We should note that the method for playing back voice notes requires you to download or open the captured voice file on the BlackBerry's media player--too bad there's no direct method to bring the player's functionality into Evernote. However, the app also includes some keyboard-skirting shortcuts that let you populate the descriptions area of an upload with previously-used tags.

Evernote for BlackBerry is a "freemium" product; the core capturing and search features are free, but subscriptions for storing multimedia notes online beyond the first 40MB per month sell for $5 per month (or $45 per year.) The application is compatible with the Bold, Storm, and Curve 8900 series phones, and should also work on future phones running operating systems 4.6 and higher. At the time of the review, Evernote for BlackBerry is exclusively available through the BlackBerry App World application.

The multiple forms of expression has always been one of Evernote's strengths, and its cross platform functionality makes it a valuable addition for those who want to create and access their notes, photos, and audio reminders from more than once place.
