Hands-On with Evernote for Android (Video)
A few of our viewers have asked to see Evernote (the app) in action on Android. But before we can do that we have to explain what Evernote (the service) is. Yes that means another LONG video by Joe. Don’t worry though, if you already know what Evernote is and does, you just want to see it in action, skip to 5:43 and get right to the features and functionality.
What is Evernote?
If you don’t want to watch the video describing what Evernote is, let me sum up for you. According to their website, “Evernote makes it easy to remember things big and small from your notable life using your computer, phone, and the web.” In short, it’s a web-service that lets you store notes, photos, images, bookmarks, and even voice notes on their servers in the cloud. They offer clients for most mobile platforms (Android, iOS, Balckberry, Windows Mobile, PalmPre, etc.), Windows and Mac, and even a version for your web browser.
Notes can be stored in “notebooks” (which are pretty much “folders”) and can be given a title and tags to help you find them in the future. But Evernote doesn’t stop there, they also recognize text in images (such as business cards, ads, handwriting, etc.), for indexing and searchability.
