Evernote is a fantastic tool for note taking. Let me start again…
Evernote is a fantastic tool for solving all of lifes problems. Ya that feels better.
I have been an Evernote user since 20008, and I have always loved it. At first I used it simply for jotting down notes on my Blackberry. I then moved on to using the voice recording, photos, searching, folders, scanning documents, scanning business cards and automatically connecting with the contacts on Linkedin (pretty sweet I know). However, about a year ago I purchased a Surface Pro 3 (now rockin the Surface Pro ) and I began using Micr0soft Onenote for various reasons, but mostly the touch screen and pen support. While Onenote is fantastic for any document you may need pen support in, I slowly began to miss certain features of Evernote. I attempted to supplement Onenote with various task management apps, reminder apps, business card scanner apps, voice recorder apps…then it hit me, WHY DONT I JUST USE EVERNOTE!
Long story short, there is not a perfect note taking app, however Evernote does lead the pack. It is incredibly intuitive, handles task management and reminders like a pro, the built in scanner app is second to none, and its cross platforn any system you can throw at it. The one thing (and it is indeed a big thing) is the lack of Surface Pen support. I know use both note taking apps for various things. Any time I know I will need to use my handy Surface Pen, I bust out Onenote, and using a handy IFTT recipe, that Onenote gets sent to my Evernote.
Go ahead and give Evernote a try if you havent yet. It’s pretty much a game changer.
