Confessions of an Evernote Addict

While my partner in Clare-and-Chrissy Crime is busy getting ready for GRL (and avoiding the pet store), I thought this a good time to confess my latest addiction.

See that Green Elephant there to the left? Yeah, him. Baby, he has changed my online life. No, he hasn't managed to eliminate my anal retentive, just this side of appearing on the television show 'Hoarders', compulsive need to collect and organize. Instead, he's fueled it. Given it wings. Turned me loose in all the best ways.

Some of you may be surprised that I haven't come across him before. I guess I was just saving the best for last as I've tried other online organizers and web clippers. But they were clunky, unsatisfying, and a pain to go back into. But this guy? He's smooth. Slick. And so much fun. Are there even words to describe what I've been up to with him?  Images, Recipes, and Articles galore. All my writing and research applications. Everything nice and tidy in a series of notebooks and tags. And, should I have more than one device that accesses the web, synced.

Did I mention he was free? *blinks*

Evernote. This my compulsive need to collect and organize information on meth.

Have you tried him? (If so, why didn't you tell me about him sooner?) Or are you a fan of some other online organizer?

I'm totally impressed with the program. :) Glad to hear others find it useful as well.

I've tried it, but couldn't really get along with it. I was looking for a more simple one that has an Android app (which is not too ginormous) so I can get notes I make on the go to my PC and into One Note. Evernote is more than I need. I don't want to keep notes in an online one permanently, I want to do them in One Note, with all the lovely noteflags and stuff. I'm suing a much more simple one call Catch Notes. Its app is way smaller.

If I had tablet (which I keep thinking of) I might give Evernote another go.

There's a whole world out there that I'm totally behind on not having a cell, much less a smart phone. :) I'm fascinated by all these apps - but figure by the time I get a chance to use them the technology will have changed again. To what, I have no idea - but I have faith.

I love Evernote! It makes the Misadventures in Stock Photography possible. :)

That said, I don't use it that often on my tablet or phone. I tend to use Simple Notepad instead, just to capture stray thoughts.

Aha! Practical usage! And such fine, practical usage indeed. We could use you as a testamonial and expose more people to the wonder that is MISP. :)
