An ex collegue of mine told me a few months ago to start using Evernote. He said it was the best piece of software he had ever seen in the last couple of years.

Well.. to be honest…  I downloaded it… installed it… looked at it… and removed it.

But I have it back on my pc again….

You must be wondering why. Well I will tell you in a sec. Let me first tell you what Evernote is. I call it the remember everything application.

Or how Evernote self descripes it : Evernote allows you to easily capture information in any environment using whatever device or platform you find most convenient, and makes this information accessible and searchable at any time, from anywhere.

Well… but why am I using it. Well that one is very easy. I was always emailing stuff to my own email account to not forget anything. Like an URL I wanted to remember… or an new email address from a friend.. or even that I had an appointment. But also big pieces of text and images. It all cluttered up my mailbox.

But since I have Evernote on all my pc’s, mobile phones etc I never forget a single item.

Well there is actually not more to tell, you just have to start using it yourself. Or just take a look at their Tour.
