    2. 2. What exactly is it? • Evernote is a cloud-based storage system that allows you to store, organize and retrieve electronic notes & files of all sorts using a variety of platforms or devices. • You can upload up to 40 MBs of data per month for free (or 1 GB of data for $5/Mo or $45/Yr). • It works from your browser or as an application for Window’s and Mac computers, or from many mobile devices such as iPhones, Galaxy or Motorola SmartPhones. 1/14/2014 2014 - Transformative Leadership Group 01/21/2014 2
    3. 3. Is it safe and secure? • In general, it is as secure as your email. While it is a great place to store nearly everything, key financial & medical records and passwords should probably use more a more encrypted storage method. • Evernote keeps your PC or Mac synchronized with the cloud-based copy of your database so you can also access it locally if the net fails you. • Information is all stored in XML format so that it is transportable if anything happens to Evernote. 1/14/2014 2014 - Transformative Leadership Group 3
    4. 4. How do I get it? Easy it IS! • Go to www.evernote.com and click on the Get Started link to sign up for a free account. • Then go to the downloads section. You’ll want an application for your OS (Mac or Windows), a web Clipper for your browser and possibly a client for your smart phone. • Note the email address they give you when they confirm your information.
