Evernote: The Note Solution I Needed

Over the years, I’ve bemoaned the fact that I can’t use OneNote on non-windows machines. I’ve tried multiple options, they were all lacking something I needed or wanted. I whined a lot.

I’m so over that now. I am really enjoying having a note solution that goes across platforms and across devices. My only concern is that I’ll use it so much I have to start paying a monthly fee. 🙁 So I don’t use all the features (like photos and such.)

The devices where I use Evernote now:

  • iPad
  • MacBook Pro
  • Kindle Fire
  • iPhone
  • iMac
  • Android Razr

Aside from these, I’ve also set my folks up to use their own accounts on on their PC’s, desktops, iPads and Android phone and iPhone. It’s not had so much as a hiccup. Not one!

I use it primarily for storing things in the following categories:

  • Tech Notes: The information I have to reference all the time when a device gives me an issue — and until now, my little self-made “tech manual” almost always was stored on the device that was crashed. Now, it’s on EVERY device. 🙂
  • Client Notes – I use it for meeting notes as well as outlines on projects currently underway. If a client calls and I’m not at my desk — I can still capture the information. If I have an idea to develop — I jot it down in the RIGHT place anywhere — anytime.
  • Quotes – I’m a collector and now I can review them or add to my collection anytime.
  • Personal Notebook – where I keep my private stuff, gift ideas for others, and quickly jotted notes.
  • Expenses/Budget – financial notes so I’ll have an easier time next April.
