Let me introduce you to one of my new favorite productivity applications. It’s called Evernote. Evernote is a note/picture/voice taking productivity application used on laptops and mobile devices. If you aren’t familiar with it, let me share with you five reasons I love this product:
Efficiency – Evernote allows me to put a note, picture, or voice recording into the application and then Evernote automatically syncs with my other devices. Whether I’m using my iPhone, iPad or MacBook Pro, I input once and am updated on all three, and it does it quickly and without error. I place my notes into files that are searchable and specific to the subject matter. Every blog post now starts as a separate Evernote file.
Convenience – Evernote is with me wherever I go. I sometimes carry my phone with me when I’m walking the dog. I can quickly put thoughts that come to me into a file in Evernote as I walk. (She’s sometimes slow!) If I see a picture, I can snap it and place it in an Evernote file for later use.
Creativity – Evernote fuels my creativity, because it allows me the freedom to think in the moment. I no longer have to wait until I get back to my laptop to brainstorm. I’m less likely to forget ideas, because I can record them as they come to me in the appropriate file.
Reliability – I never have to lose a thought again! There is seldom a time where I would not have one of these devices with me, so whenever I have a thought, I always have a place to record it, which again, automatically syncs with the other devices. I’ve yet to have the application crash, freeze, or fail to sync immediately.
Access – Evernote is a free application! You can’t beat the price for such a productive tool. Evernote is finding new ways to share information. If you notice at the end of each post now I have an Evernote share icon. You can now save my posts into your Evernote application. (How cool is that?)
If you are looking for a way to stay more organized and be more productive, check out Evernote.
