Technically Speaking All in on IT

logo Then look no further than Evernote. I had heard about this app for awhile and even had it languishing on my iPhone never to be used. Then I started to look in to it as I tried to find something that would let me merge notes from my Mac and my Windows virtual machines. Not only is it cross-platform, but you can synchronize all of your notes over the internet between desktops, laptops and mobile devices.

It is much more than a note taking app, with the ability to make web clippings and translate the text in the clips. It can also house voice recordings if your device supports making them. But the thing that jazzed me the most was that it has the ability to import notes from OneNote 2007. I love OneNote 2007, don’t get me wrong, but there wont be a version out for my Mac or iPhone anytime soon (also, where is Outlook, Visio and LiveWriter for the Mac??).

I was initially disappointed with the lack of text formatting options and the seeming inability to do numbered or bulleted lists. Once I found this (CTRL+SHIFT+O or CTRL+SHIFT+B) by right-clicking in the middle of the note I was much better off. There are still some improvements to the fit and finish to be made, but overall well done. And of course, the price cannot be beat.

You can also purchase a premium account for $5 a month that let’s you exceed the 40mb limit on syncing data. So if you add a lot of multimedia or photos to your notes, this may be worth considering.
