The app is roughly organized into notebooks and notes. Just like in real life. You create a notebook for a particular subject/topic, then fill that notebook with notes. Besides syncing across devices and operating systems, there are some features that make Evernote really stand out:
The ability to share notes and whole notebooks with classmates, coworkers, family, etc.
The ability to take and attach pictures to a note right from within the app.
The ability to take and attach voice memos and audio to a note right from within the app.
The ability to attach files (spreadsheets, images, docs) to any note.
The ability to scan text in a photo using Optical Character Recognition technology.
The ability to set reminders for yourself for various tasks, goals, and projects from within the app.
The ability to create checkboxes that serve as virtual to-dos.
The ability to sync automatically between all devices, meaning you can access your notes even when offline. (This feature is somewhat limited in the free version.)
Best of all – it’s FREE! There’s a premium version that offers a few bonus features, but the freebie offers all of the above.
Evernote has been around for nearly five years now, and although the Ahom team has dabbled with the app before, Brett and I have finally become full-blown evangelists for it. Before we get too far in, we should say upfront that this is not a sponsored post; we have no affiliation with Evernote whatsoever. We just really love the app and we think that every man could benefit from using it.
