As a district level school official I find Evernote to be key in my operations. I am very focused (for myself, my staff and my students) on anytime, anywhere access to my work and information. I need to have a time and date stamped log of phone calls and conversations and be able to pull them up on my iPhone, my iPad or my Windows based Ultrabook. The challenge for me was the steps in opening the software and getting to the notes phase. Here is how that was resolved.... -on the Ultrabook: Control Alt N brings up the note function ready to type. The only thing I need to do before exiting is to indicate where I want it (see the iOS apps below to indicate where I put the notes). -on the iPhone and iPad I decided upon Journal for Evernote by Voyager Apps for Evernote. It is a $0.99 app. Hit the icon and start typing. When finished hit the top icon which sends it off to Evernote and close the program. The app automatically creates a journal folder and the year of the date stamp. All of your notes for the day are compiled inline on a single note and time stamped for each. You also have the option of having a Map link that will show where you were when you created the note. The integration with Evernote is seamless and it is fast. Between the keyboard shortcut in Windows and the iOS app, I now can quickly keep track of notes from calls, etc., email those notes when desired, and access them from anywhere, at anytime. As in anything else your mileage may vary but for me THIS WORKS.
