Evernote – (Stephen Georgulis Recommended)

EvernoteFollowing on from my last two 'recommended posts' on 1Password and Dropbox… Evernote completes my holy trinity of favourite software.

With these pieces of software and my iPhone I literally have my whole life in my hand wherever I go.

And just as much as I rave about the other two, Evernote may just be the best of the three in terms of just how brilliant and useful it is.

The guys over at Evernote describe their software as being 'your external brain' and quite honestly it really fits the bill.

Anything you see, think of or want to remember can be quickly and easily saved in this software and then synced to all your computers and phones.

What's more, all this data can be stored in various notebooks, tagged and geo-tagged to suit your own taste so all your information is instantly cross-searchable at any moment.

Just to give you a quick example of some of the many ways I use it…

  • Storing flight, hotel and details for trips so when I'm travelling I have it all to hand
  • Storing daily exercise along with schedules and routines I want to follow so I can record and monitor progress
  • Storing webpages and articles I see online that I want to read later or keep on file

And that's just the first few I thought of immediately. I could give loads more. To do lists, things to get, recipes… you can store them all in one place.

But I haven't even got the best bit… the cost for all this insanely cool capability at your fingertips… nothing!

Yep, Evernote is FREE!

If you're a poweruser like me you may find you want to purchase the ridiculously low priced 'Premium Subscription' but for a lot of people this isn't necessary (even with my high usage I've only really needed the higher upload limits 2-3 months out of 2 years of daily usage).

So if you're not using it already I really suggest you go and grab Evernote right now.

Especially considering it costs nothing you've got nothing to lose in at least checking it out.

Let me know what you think.
