Evernote: The best note taking tool so far

with 7 comments


I blogged about Google Notes and Zotero before, and I liked both of them. But, if you really need a note taking tool which can pan across web-desktop- mobile; which comes with a very usable desktop (PC / Mac) version as well as web based version – you need Evernote.

Evernote allows you to easily capture information in any environment using whatever device or platform you find most convenient, and makes this information accessible and searchable at anytime, from anywhere.

On the web. On your desktop. On your phone.
Everything you put into Evernote is always synchronized across all of your devices. That way, all your memories are available to you wherever you are.

It comes with a powerful Web Clipper, a Desktop Clipper, a great Desktop tool with a nifty editor. It synchronize with the web based note automagically! Desktop Evernote indexes itself – makes searching really easy. Also I was most impressed by the fact – it stopped indexing when my laptop was running in battery (small things matter)! Tagging is easy. Display of the web clips, specially images are good (one up against Google Notes).

Top of that a screen capture tool comes along Evernote desktop, which is very handy to quick snap any app and paste it in your note.

The browser clipper and the web version is very usable, specially the thumbnail display of the notes. Sharing the notes via email or publishing is neat too!

Yet to try out the mobile options, but already I am impressed!

Here goes an overview video of Evernote:


BTW : Evernote is still in private beta. But I have few invitations left. if you want one – drop a comment here.

  4. Getting to know and trying out the functionalities…I was missing the ‘to do list’ creator as in the old evernote…Just came to know that I can create to-do list by using Ctrl+Shift+C command but can’t check/uncheck in the edit mode…If this work out, I’m ready to give up other tools, I’ve been using….The best part is the fast synchronization :-)

  5. This sounds like a very good tool. Tried Zotero, but found it inconvenient. Dear Mr. Soulsoup, could you please send me the invite for Evernote.
