Evernote is a cloud-based, information organization app. But you probably knew that, right? The system already boasts over 100 million subscribers. Why? Because it’s the one of the few apps almost no one can outgrow—I find new uses for it all the time. Here are twelve you may not have considered. They’re a little unconventional, but they save me time, trouble, and a lot more.
Not only is Evernote easy to use across all my devices, but I’ve developed workflows and workarounds that enable me to be more efficient and effective than ever before when it comes to content production.
I explain step-by-step how to use these same hacks and tips in my new screencast and ebook, Evernote Hacks for Bloggers, available for anyone who registers for Platform University® today, Friday, April 17, 2015.
Everyone knows I geek out when it comes to new technology. But sometimes old tech is the best tech, and that goes for taking notes.
Last fall information guru Clay Shirky banned the use of laptops and other digital devices in his NYU classroom. It remains a controversial move. Not only students, but even other professors have criticized him.
Not me. I think Shirky’s onto something.
I often refer to Evernote as my digital brain. It has replaced my physical filing cabinet, allowing me to go completely digital. It is where I store anything I need to reference later.
But Evernote can quickly become unwieldy if you don’t have a system for using it. It doesn’t have to be complex, but it does have to be intentional. My own strategy has evolved over time.
However, like most people, I struggled with consistency. I wanted to journal. I was convinced of the benefits. But I found myself blowing it off with increasing frequency.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I bought an iPad Mini and am loving it. It goes with me everywhere. It is what I think the iPad should have been from the start.
Since writing that post, I have been asked numerous times about which iPad applications I use. I thought I’d share here my top ten favorites. These are the applications I am using daily.
I have been using Evernote for months. However, I have not really taken time to explore the depth of this incredible program until just recently. I have mainly just used it for a place to store meeting notes and an occasional web clipping.
However, thanks to Brett Kelly’s very helpful e-book, Evernote Essentials, the Evernote user forum, and a little experimentation, I have begun to see the incredible power of this digital repository. So much so, then I am committed to going paperless in my new office setup.
I have been writing for a while now about Evernote, the software that turns your computer into a digital brain. It allows you to remember everything. Literally.
Yesterday, someone asked me if I had a list of all my blog posts I’d written on this topic. Sadly, I had to admit that I didn’t. The best I could do was point them to my blog’s search engine.
