Achieve Your Resolutions: Evernote
Over the next few months, as people draft their New Year’s Resolutions and 2012 predictions, I’ll be providing tools to help you Achieve Your Resolution – valuable webapps and web sites that I’ve found in the past year that help achieve popular New Year’s Resolutions.
Evernote is a popular app available online, for Windows and Mac and on mobile phones via iOS and Android. Sarah talked earlier this week about getting Premium for free for the rest of the year as a student. We’ve had guest posts on how to use Evernote to organize, and our editor-in-chief emeritus Shep McAllister wrote on Evernote’s blog on how it was ideal for students.
But how can Evernote help you get more organized?
Here’s how. It allows you to put your documents and information in the cloud. I’ve used it as a more fully-featured Google Docs, a storage container, and a repository for all my notes. If I go to the library and forgot my notes, they’re available on the cloud. If I want to find that great Rolling Stone article I read earlier, I can find my copy in Evernote.
Evernote’s not the best app on-the-go for note writing, in my opinion, but it’s ideal for note gathering. If you need to pull up notes on your mobile phone quickly, Evernote is the app for you.
To a lesser extent, I’ve even saved memes from Tumblr or Reddit in Evernote. No one ever said organizing has to be 100% productive!
Evernote gives students an app where they can take their class notes, clip articles and organize their favorite memes or trends.
