Evernote: Your Personal Note-keeper

I love EverNote! Unlike most of the computer application I rave about, EverNote is not Web-based. (Gasp!) It must be downloaded to your computer. However, ignoring that issue, I think EverNote is one of the best free products available to help you keep track of all of the pieces of information in your life.

EverNote works as a "scrolling, never-ending note." You simply write a new note to yourself and it is saved automatically. However, it is more sophisticated than the spiral notepad that sits on your desk. Here are a few of the features that make EverNote so great:
  • Full text search capability: Search through all of your notes at once for a particular word.

  • Tagging: You can assign multiple keywords to each note. The keywords show up as categories that you can see at a glance.

  • Copy and paste: Copy and paste from your email, documents, the Web, or anywhere! You can save screen shots, graphics, etc. to your personal database.
