Evernote

Review Author: Donna_Berryman@URMC.Rochester.edu
Platform: iOS
App or Mobile Website: App (link to App Store)
Does it require WiFi to work? No
Category: Productivity
Price: Free
Special Instructions: WiFi necessary for synchronizing notes. There is also a paid version of the app. This app is for the iPad. Others are available for iOS & android phones. There is also a desktop/laptop version. It will sync across all devices.
Tasks or Searches Tested: Writing notes; saving web pages; doing searches for notes.
Design: This app is well designed. Pretty much anything you want to do is intuitive. The Evernote website (evernote.com) does provide tutorials and a "knowledge base" (sort of an elaborate FAQ)
Functionality: Write notes. Store them in notebooks. Use tags to help identify them in searches. Use in conjunction with Skitch (another app) which allows you to draw on photos, maps, web pages, etc., and store them in Evernote
Content: YOU add the content. Evernote provides the sync, the search, etc.
Other Comments: There's an upload limit with the free account. From the Evernote website: - 100,000 Notes; each note can be a maximum of 25 megabytes (mb) for free users and 50mb for Premium users. - 250 Synchronized Notebooks (including Notebook Stacks). All 250 notebooks can be shared. There is no limit to the number of Local Notebooks (which aren't synced) you can have. - 10,000 Tags. - 100 Saved Searches. Due to the space limitations, this is probably most useful for written notes, clipping items from web pages, etc.
