What is Evernote?
Evernote is a powerful cross-platform tool that allows you to take, organize and share notes. All your notes are accessible via Evernote’s website, their mobile apps and their computer programs. Evernote’s unique organizational tools help students to stay on top of their schoolwork by helping to efficiently organize notes, so they can be accessed with ease in the future.
Evernote’s Features and Uses
In Evernote, you can save notes to different notebooks, with the ability to move a note from one notebook to another with ease. Notebooks can be used to organize notes by topic. For example, you can save all of your favorite recipes into one notebook, and have all of your biology notes saved into a different notebook on the same account.
Evernote also uses tags to organize various notes, so you can search through notes in multiple notebooks based on what tags they have. This can allow you to find notes related to similar topics in different notebooks. For example, you may be looking for notes with the tag “vectors”. This tag may be attached to notes in both your physics and calculus notebooks, giving you access to more information than if you were to only check one of your notebooks for this information.
You can also set reminders in Evernote for upcoming events. Reminders will appear in your notes as checklist items, so you will be reminded of these tasks every time you open Evernote. You can also set a date and time for the reminder. Since Evernote is a cross-platform tool, any device you have with the Evernote app will give you a notification, and you can also receive email notifications about this reminder.
