Evernote – a new way to take notes on and offline

Evernote is gaining fans all over the blogosphere with its free, feature-filled service that works on various platforms – Windows, Mac, Windows Mobile, online, offline; and is sync-able and searchable!

The coolest technology feature is Evernote’s handwriting recognition. Just start typing in the search box for whatever word or string of text you are looking for, and watch Evernote find it for you!

Evernote works off of the premise that you will save items that you don’t want to forget or lose into the program. Then Evernote will sync the information across the desktop program and online, to make sure you can access it where ever you are, whenever you need it. Adding tags is easy, as is searching. We all like tagging support because you can add any kind of triggers that help you remember the information or have it available for searching later. (I use tagging support on my blog, too!)

When you are on the go, you can email reminders to your Evernote account, and when you get back to your computer or online, the information’s there. Additional ways to add information to Evernote are to scan and upload documents (great for receipts!), pictures (Evernote is so smart, that it can recognize text in photos!) and dragging and dropping files from your desktop.

Evernote is easy to use, which makes me like it, but it also has the capability to be used over a variety of platforms. I don’t feel limited by my cell phone’s data plan to access Google Notebook when I’m on the go or feel pressure to carry a notebook with me 24-7. I am also able to search my notes and add/remove/modify tags, which is incredibly helpful. The interface is bright and easy to use, and the help documents and community are great.

Have you ever clipped or saved something and then forgotten where you got the information from? Every Evernote clip has the source hyperlinked, if available, for easy viewing at the source.
