Evernote is a suite of software and services designed for notetaking and archiving.
A "note" can be a piece of formatted text, a full webpage or webpage excerpt, a
photograph, a voice memo, or a handwritten "ink" note. Notes can also have file
attachments. Notes can be sorted into folders, then tagged, annotated, edited,
given comments, searched and exported as part of a notebook.
Evernote makes it easy to remember things big and small from your everyday life
using your computer, phone, tablet and the web.
Data storage and access- On supported operating systems, Evernote stores and
edits the user's notes on their local machine.
Users with Internet access and an Evernote account can also have their notes
automatically synchronized with a master copy held on Evernote's servers. These
approaches lets a user access and edit their data across multiple machines and
operating system platforms, but still view, input and edit data when an Internet
connection is not available. However, notes stored on Evernote servers are not

and the recording of voice notes. In some situations, text that appears in captured
images can be recognized using OCR and annotated. Evernote also supports touch

are available for the most popular Internet browsers that allow marked sections of
webpages to be captured and clipped to Evernote. If no section of a webpage has
been highlighted, Evernote can clip the full page.

images are made available on every device and computer you use.

How to get setup with Evernote
Evernote is free and works on any platform: Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and
Blackberry. There are two different ways to set up Evernote:
On Your Computer. Open up your web browser, type in www.evernote.com, and
then click the green Sign Up tab at the top right of the screen. Follow the
On Your Mobile Devices. Go to the App Store on your iOS, Android, Windows
or Blackberry phone/tablet and search for Evernote. Download the app.
Also, install the simple drawing app from the Evernote family, Skitch on both
your computer and mobile devices. On your computers, access and install the
WebClipper for Safari, Firefox and/or Chrome. That extension creates an
elephant icon in your browsers’ menu bars to create web clippings.
When you install Evernote on your device, it asks you if you want to create a new
account or sign in to an existing one. If you are new to Evernote, it asks for your email and a password to establish an account. The app will then ask if you want to
save location data along with your notes, allowing you to see where each one was
created. After this you’ll see the main menu screen where you can navigate to your
notebooks or all of your notes by tapping the appropriate button.
