Many have reviewed Evernote, and months have gone by since I first mentioned it in my blog. I will briefly discuss how and why I use Evernote and point to some other helpful blog posts.
In my quest to get things done, I used to make use of email and of my PDA to keep task lists and to remind me of things I did not want to forget. (As the senior Dr. Henry Jones says, in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade says, "I wrote them down in my Diary so that I wouldn't have to remember.") If I found something on the web that I wanted to download or read, but didn't have the time to deal with at the moment, I would send myself emails with the subject "tryme" or "readme." When I got home in the evening, I would take care of them by actually downloading something I wanted to try or reading something I wanted to read (on my iPod touch screen, or by printing).
Also, as I have mentioned, I make extensive use of Notes in my PDAs; I used to use Memos on Palm, and now Notes on my iPod touch. Then I started reading about Evernote. I read 7 Ways to Use Evernote. I also read 9 Ways I use Evernote, and How To Use Evernote to Remember Everything, Part 1 and Part2.
I started using Evernote to capture the things I previously emailed. I did this on my home PowerBook Pro of on mywork MacBook Pro. The notes were accessible on both and on my iPod touch. I took brief reminder notes on my touch. I started taking notes Evernote in the classes I was taking using my PowerBook, I'd take notes on my iPod touch when reading for the classes, and I would study reading (and searching) through both on my touch.
The more I use Evernote, the more I like it, and the more ways I find to use it.
