Best App Ever: EVERNOTE

This gives a few more original ideas on how to use Evernote. I like the saved blog ideas for future reference and the receipt capture. I like the way it highlights the ease of use for clipping websites in their entirety. Tons of good Evernote ideas are available on AR when you search or visit the new Evernote group!

A lot of apps are just a one-night stand, or maybe a week. Then they sit around gathering digital dust.

Evernote is different; I use it almost every day.  And best of all, it's free!  There is a pay version, if you need it to store large documents, but for me the free version is fine.

And what does Evernote do?  It saves web pages and stores them as notes.

When you install Evernote, the little elephant icon appears in the browser toolbar.  Whenever you want to keep, but not print out, a webpage, just click on the elephant. Evernote captures the active screen -- all of it, not just what's showing on your monitor.  It's then saved as a "note."  You name your folders, and pop the note into a folder so you can find it again.  The entire process takes seconds.

It's amazing how often you want the webpage -- but you don't want to print it.   I use Evernote for transaction confimations such as paid receipts after an online transaction.  I know they'll send me an email .. but what if they don't?  I have the confirmation number right on the saved note.  

I save recipes, travel tips on countries I'd like to go to.  I have a file called "Treasures" where I keep web pages of artists whose work I like, stores I'd like to visit, and quotes.  I also have a file called ActiveRain where I save blogs with useful tips I want to keep for reference.  Of course, I can bookmark blogs on AR, but with Evernote I can sort the saved blogs  into folders labeled "AR: Blogging Tips," "AR: Tech Tips," "AR: Words of Wisdom" and so on.  And if you synch your computer with a smart phone, all those notes are available to you on the go, too!

It's a painless and paperless way to keep information accessible and organized.  The more you use Evernote, the more you appreciate how handy it is.  Other apps may come and go but with Evernote, you can look forward to a satisfying long-term relationship.

Thanks so much for this great app!  I will use it pretty much the same way that you do and it far surpasses the snipping tool.  Love the ideas and help I get from active rain!

I love Evernote!  It's simply awesome when you're flitting around the internet researching stuff!!  And of course I hear other agents who have found lots of other creative things to do with it.
