Evernote – an online note keeping system

Evernote - an online note keeping system

I have been using Evernote for a while now.

Evernote allows you to easily capture information in any environment using whatever device or platform you find most convenient, and makes this information accessible and searchable at any time, from anywhere.

Now what I like about Evernote, is not only can you use it online from any web browser, they also have clients for OS X and Windows. If you have a Tablet PC you can even use your “Pen” to make notes too.

They also have a Windows Mobile client and one should also be available for the iPhone (and so the iPod touch) soon.

There is this video which helps explain things a little better.

Now from a learning perspective this could have real potential for learner in keeping all their electronic notes in one place. They won’t need to worry about if they are learning at home, in college, at work, whilst mobile or wherever they are.

Pen support means that those learners who prefer to write notes can, whilst those that prefer to type will be able to.

You can even add audio notes.

Well worth checking out, it use to be invite only, but as of yesterday it is now an open beta which means anyone can sign up.

Evernote is now in open beta! No more invitations required. Tell all your friends.

  1. Hi James,
    I love Evernote as well, though I have never got around to being able to sync it with the thousands of laptops, etc I seem to own and use in work/home mode. This is excellent and might help me become even more organised than I used to be. Huh!

  2. How well does it compare with MS OneNote -I’ve been encouraging students to use it to organise notes and it works wonderfully with a tablet or IWB.

    I don’t think it has the search that Evernote offers, but what I really like is that, if you paste text/image from IE, it also pastes the URL so snippets are automatically referenced – does Evernote do the same?

    Would try myself but Evernote does not seem to want to send me a confirmation email……

    Though OneNote is “better” on a single computer, what I like about Evernote is that you don’t need to have the application on every computer you use, as you can access your Evernote notes on the web.

    You certainly can add snippets from webpages into notes and it references the URL.

    I can also e-mail myself notes, which is useful say on the iPod touch (or iPhone).

    Have sent you an invite.
