Remember Everything.

What is Evernote?

Evernote is touted as a way to "Remember Everything."

It is an organizational tool that allows you to:

  • Keep everything in sync
  • Remember things you like
  • Save favorite webpages
  • Research Better
  • Plan your next trip
  • Work with friends and colleagues

It works as a desktop application (requires a download and admin privileges); it works in a web browser (see link); and there are apps for iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone.

You can upload documents to keep. You can make new notes that include photos and/or sound clips. You can organize information by using Notebooks and Tags. The search feature looks at the text all of your notes--even handwritten notes in photos--to help you find what you're looking for.

Users do need a log in which is acquired by providing an email address, picking an appropriate username, and password. The basic service is free; but a premium account is available.
