Website Review: Evernote

As an online high school student, trying to keep track of all of your notes can be a pretty daunting task. Whether it is your class notes jotted down on a piece of notebook paper or an online article your reading for your research paper, your notes can be spread out over a variety of mediums.

But what if there was a single place where you can save and access all of your notes from any medium? Enter Evernote.

Evernote is your own personal digital assistant that helps organize all of your notes and documents into one centralized location. The site allow users to capture a wide range of data; everything from text notes and clips of webpages, to photos and screenshots. Once you capture something you want to hang on to, you can easily save it to the Evernote servers.

After you capture a note, Evernote even indexes your notes so you can search all of your notes later on. All of your notes are searchable and are organized for easy reference. You can also search any of your notes by keywords, titles, and tags, which is perfect for digging through your notes for a quick review session. Another cool feature is Evernote’s ability to recognize handwritten text in your images, which is searchable too.

Perhaps the best part of Evernote is the ability to access your notes from a variety of platforms. Since the application is web-based, users can access notes from their computer, phone or other desktop applications. This can come in very handy for students who need to access their online high school courses from multiple computers.

All in all, Evernote is a great app for those who are looking to organize their ever-increasing pile of stick notes and docs. The free version offers 40MB per month for uploading, while $45 a year gets you a 500MB/month allowance, better security features and support.

Evernote Rating: 4.5/5
