I have a few similar apps, but this one is my go to app for its ease of use, and you can use it for so many out-side-the-box ways to organize life, lessen the clutter on the computer, and be able to toggle and access your important info and docs on the go, on both computer or mobile devices.
One of my personal and favorite ways to use Evernote is to throw out all manuals to your fridge, dishwasher, camera, ipad, etc., and go online and download the PDFs to Evernote. Man, is that freeing!!!
An additional tip I learned from a fellow Evernoter: she likes to take pictures of serials numbers of her big ticket items such as her big screen TV or camera -- you know, the ones you need at inappropriate times like when you are at Lowe's! That way she can always know the correct parts she needs to get. Great tip!
It is free to sign up for a basic Evernote account, or they also offer a premium paid account for bigger storage (which I have).
Here's the review from Cool Mom Tech:
If there was an app our readers consistently crush hard on, it's Evernote. And since it's so often hailed as a fantastic way to get organized, especially with the handy email address that dumps everything right into your account along with the auto import of images right from the app, we thought back to school would be the perfect time to share 4 reasons why we think you should be using it.
1. Take pictures of items while you're shopping, to-do lists around the house, even business cards from work and then instantly import them right to your account.
2. Find recipes around the web and use the book marklet to drop them right into a handy notebook for easy printing and kitchen use.
3. Save links to articles and posts that you want to read at another time that you can access from any device.
4. Free up your email inbox by storing and retrieving your emails that don't require your immediate attention and check them later.
Thanks Cool Mom Tech! I seriously love Evernote, too!!!
