Review

Evernote is an application that I have installed on my Mac, iPhone and iPad (and if I was allowed to install it at work I would have it on my Vista laptop too). There are a number of note-taking apps around and Evernote is the one that I use. Well, when I say use, I have barely scratched the surface, although after Elaine’s demonstration I intend to take advantage of it’s many features.

In fact Evernote is much more than a note taking application. It allows you to capture information and ideas in a variety of ways and from a variety of sources. You can use it to type a text note, clip a web page, snap a photo, grab a screenshot and much much more. Evernote will even convert a photo taken from your mobile’s camera into editable text using its OCR capabilities.

Once she’d covered the basics, Elaine showed us how to manage our information, demonstrating tagging, searching and notebook management. She also talked about the differences between the basic free version and the Premium version – with the Premium version you get bigger upload capacity, support for more file types, PDF searching and no adverts.

One of the great benefits of Evernote is that it synchronises your notes between your devices, so, for example, I can add or update a note on my iPhone and that note will be available on my desktop and my iPad via wireless synchronisation.

As always with our events, after the demo, Elaine took questions before we moved on to other tech and Adobe related chat.
