Evernote (Finally) Adds Audio Notes for Windows Users
Evernote is a tremendous application for taking notes in class, organizing materials, and keeping your memories organized. Their mobile applications have always allowed you to create notes with audio from your phone’s mic, but their desktop counterparts lagged behind.
The Mac desktop app gained the feature not too long ago, and now Windows users can get in on the action as well. If you’re already using Evernote in class to take notes, now one click starts recording part of the lecture to refer back to later. Just make sure your professor is okay with being recorded beforehand; I’ve seen some bad confrontations in my classes.
Unfortunately, the audio files don’t fall in line with your current notes, instead recording directly to a new note, but you can drag and drop them wherever you want after the fact. If you really wanted to geek out, try using Dragon Dictate after class to transcribe your professor’s audio into an instant study guide.
Obviously recording lectures is nothing new, but it’s nice to see it arrive in one of our favorite all-around apps for students.
