Evernote – Your External Brain

Have you ever taken a picture and couldn’t find it?  Is your ‘Favorites’ list so long it scrolls off the screen?  Can you find anything you’ve saved in 5 minutes or less? I’ve just discovered a solution to my disorganization – Evernote!

Evernote is a multi-platform organization tool available on the web, your desktop, on your phone or the cloud.  You can capture tasks, notes and research, web pages, whiteboards, business cards, wine labels – what ever you can think of – and save it.  With state of the art recognition technology, including handwriting recognition, Evernote analyzes and tags your images, web links and notes while saving and synchronizing across all your devices.  You can then organize as you wish.  And best of all – it’s free.

Evernote’s published goal is to “give everyone the ability to easily capture any moment, idea, experience, or object whenever they want using whatever device or platform they find most convenient, and then to make it all easy to find.”  I think they have accomplished their goal!

I’m just beginning the learning process, but I wanted to share it with all of you.  Check it out for yourself at www.evernote.com.
