Evernote is an application that allows you to capture ideas anywhere with virtually any device.
With Evernote, you can capture ideas, Webclips, Web pages, audio clips, images, etc. and organize them with tags and “notebooks”. You can capture and organize ideas from your phone, iPad, Web browser, e-mail, and computer. All devices can synchronize with each other; however, you can capture ideas offline, and synchronize when there is an Internet connection.
It is a powerful tool for collecting your ideas and thoughts.
In order to use Evernote, you will need at a minimum a Web browser. However, you can reach its full potential through the installation of applications to your Web browser, desktop, iPad, and phone.
The only required equipment is a device to access the Internet. This can be a phone, iPad, or computer.
Software for Evernote can be found at Evernote downloads. This link will provide you with links to download applications for your computer, Web browser, and mobile devices.
