I stumbled across it while looking for desktop filing and organization software. I’m a newbie user but so far I love how beautiful and easy this program makes projects for me. Sticking documents in a regular file folder doesn’t work when you still have to sift through dozens of files. With Evernote I can SEE the files that are being put away as depicted below.
You can also search for each file by keyword and tagging. Don’t worry if you don’t have time to go in and tag all your files yourself. Evernote can call up the text within any of your documents much like Google mail so even if you forgot to properly label, you should be able to find your file. You can use Evernote from your mobile phone to take snapshots of business cards and other images. Here’s the kicker as quoted in my Evernote startup message:
“Evernote automatically makes text in your snapshots searchable!”
I plan on using it to organize my thoughts while I’m planning for trips, projects and design drafts. You’ve gotta check it out for yourself!
