Great App for Computer, Phone and Tablet: Evernote: Nerd Rating: 5 stars
Ever wanted a place to store all those little notes that get lost so easily? Let me introduce you to Evernote. Evernote is a free app that organizes all kinds of information into notes and notebooks. These notes and notebooks are easily searchable. You can even add tags to make finding related notes easy.
Now you have a place for all those little notes, recipes, travel itineraries, to-do lists, and all the things you might jot down on a sticky note or scrap of paper. Better yet, you can search through those notes, and even organize related notes into notebooks. I have found Evernote to be an indispensable app for keeping my life in order.
Ever come across a webpage with information you want to refer to later? Evernote allows you to “clip” (save) webpages for later review. I really love this feature because I can keep a copy of the whole webpage, in many cases including graphics, instead of copying and pasting just part of the page -which often loses its formatting when pasted into another application.
Evernote has versions for your computer, tablet and smartphone. Changes, deletions and new notes are automatically synchronized between all your devices. Evernote offers a totally free basic version, a Premium version for $5 per month or $45 a year, and a business version for $10 per month per user, which is geared towards business collaboration and sharing.
Evernote also has specialized versions for food (Evernote Food), keeping track of people (Evernote Hello), a super people tracker for the NSA (just kidding), downloading online content for later viewing (Evernote Clearly), and studying (Evernote Peek)
Evernote can be installed from the App store, Google Play or www.evernote.com. This is a great app for computers.
