Evernote can help you organize your life by keeping notes. Compared with other similar applications, this tool has the advantage of letting you access your notes from any location as they are stored both locally and on the Cloud. Therefore, before you start using the application, you should sign up to the corresponding online service, which is available for free. Luckily, you can use various accounts at the same time. For instance, you may want to have an account for personal notes and another for work-related activities. Besides, you can create notebooks, or note collections, for a more efficient management of your notes. Another handy way to organize them is by classifying them with tags.
The application supports applying formatting to the text on your notes, and it even allows checking your spelling or adding hyperlinks. Additionally, you can also attach files to them. What is more, you can also add reminders in order to receive e-mail notifications on a given date. Unfortunately, reminders cannot be set to be triggered at a specific time.
The tool has an attractive and easy-to-use interface. It allows finding the exact notes by full-text search or arranging them into notebooks and by tags. Even more, it has a feature called “Atlas”, which can help you organize your notes by locating them on a map. Finally, you can easily share your notes by posting them to social networks or sending them by e-mail.
To sum up, Evernote is an excellent application. As said above, its main advantage is that, given you have an Internet access, you can see your notes independently of your location. However, you do not need to be online all the time because local copies of your notes can be created and then synchronized at a later time.
