Evernote Crush

Evernote. You may be a convert already but I am only now finding the time to ‘play’ with this little app.  And I think it could potentially change my life. It will challenge my habit of collecting moleskins and beautiful journals. It will stop me writing in several journals at once. It may help me to stay on track with a whole range of documents, ideas and administration. It will allow me to illustrate ideas as they come, to track the flow of new thoughts, creative projects and memos. And these lovely jottings will be synced across my devices.

So I see you may still be unsure. In the last week I have used Evernote to:

  • Collate research notes
  • List blogging ideas
  • Clip important documents from the web
  • Annotate a photo – with Skitch
  • Copy and paste inspirational quotes
  • Note important websites to visit
  • Store important receipts
  • Journal my ideas
  • Make shopping and to do lists
I have a long way to go. I need to use it each day for a week to get a real run on its full potential. Sacha Chua’s  is inspiring in how she used Evernote for Visible Thinking. She uses Sketchbooks to illustrate what she learns and helps people engage with Visible Thinking. Evernote is her vehicle. Her Vodcast makes Evernote look so simple and the obvious way forward for any creative. Enjoy!
