Today, I'm highlighting an app that I use all the time. Behind my calendar, email, and to do list, it is my most useful app I have.
Your post it notes, clippings from magazines or websites, lists, social security cards and medical papers, insurance forms, knitting patterns, books to read, school papers, art articles on how to make something, notes about holidays, anniversaries, gardening, home design, inspirational quotes, pet records, travel notes, memorable meals, medicines and appliance records.
All the things that used to go into a pile and eventually into a box, now all go to my Evernote account. No more searching for that paper, clipping, note, etc. that I KNOW is somewhere on my desk, beside my bed, in my purse, etc. I know it exists in Evernote, and a quick search finds it, even if I forget which notebook I put it in. See you can have many notebooks to store different information. That should put most information in order, but if the info is ambiguous, then Evernote will help you search for it.
You can scan things to Evernote, email things, web clip things or even "print" to Evernote much like you print to a PDF file.
You can try to service for free, but it you find it as useful as I did, join the Premium membership not only for the extra perks, but also to reward the software team that not only created the original Evernote, but keeps adding more and more features all the time. You will not regret it. (And no, I don't get a referral bonus, I just like things that take stress away from my life in an easy and simple way. Evernote is just that.)
