Are you using Evernote? This app has to be one of the best-kept business productivity secrets. It’s amazing.
I keep my life in Evernote, and yesterday I had cause to be glad. My modem died, so I had no Internet connection other than on my phone, but I kept right on working on my iMac. Everything was there in Evernote. Projects I’m working on, client notes, research data.
Although I spent a couple of hours rushing out to buy a Wi Fi hotspot (BAD Telstra — a three to five day wait for a replacement modem? Curses…) — I had a productive day, thanks to Evernote.
As soon as I got online again, Evernote updated itself with all the new material I’d created, and with the changes I’d made to notes.
Although most people I talk to haven’t heard of Evernote, it has millions of users. According to this February 2013 article in Bloomberg:
Evernote says it has 50 million users around the world (a third in the U.S.) and is adding 100,000 a day. Operating on a “freemium” model, the company makes money primarily from the sliver of that user base that pays $45 a year, or $5 a month, for a souped-up version with more storage capacity.
Many people are aware of how useful Evernote can be, but did you know that you can also record audio notes in Evernote?
As this article, 8 Pro Tips for Evernote Power Users reports:
“Create Audio Notes
Creating an audio file is another way you can take full advantage of Evernote’s multimedia note-taking capabilities. To do so, create a new note and click the audio button, which is located on the top right for both the desktop and mobile versions of Evernote.”
