Geek moment: Evernote

Standard

Have I mentioned how much I love using Evernote? I use it almost every day to clip websites for web research and other stuff I want to save. Plus now, I’m using it to organize all my grad school info and notes. The best thing is the way it syncs and works seamlessly across all my devices. Laptop, sure. But the Kindle and Android phone apps are almost slicker. My favorite feature is related to appointments in my calendar. When I’m at the appointment and click New Note in the widget on my phone, it starts a new note with the title of the appointment—as if it knows where I’m at! The first time it did that, I was like, how did it know!?

There are things I would improve—like spell check for tags when you clip articles, and I wish it would recognize if I’d already clipped an article. Also, once in a while I’m at a strange computer and just want to look something up or print from my Evernote account: The web browser version is painfully slow, especially on older machines, and it ends up freezing a lot. Also, I miss the way I could paste text or images pretty much as is into OneNote—there are some formatting issues in Evernote. But the pros far outweigh the cons, in my opinion.

I am not affiliated with Evernote. Just having a geek moment. That is all.
