I am going to be reviewing software I feel is invaluable to the current day college student. Today I will review Evernote, an amazing bit of software that will increase the productivity of every single student on campus. College is all about notes, papers, analyzing and memorizing important information. College is also about participating in sports, activities, events, social groups, and meeting new people. Basically, college is an extremely busy experience.
Evernote can be used to help you make the most of those random “fifteen minute” breaks we all have throughout the day. Evernote allows you to take notes (or cut and paste them from your favorite word processor) and have your notes sync between every single digital device one can own. Evernote allows your information to be accessed and edited on any Apple, Linux, Windows, iOS, Android, or web-browser environment. This “anywhere, anytime” information retrieval is extremely convenient and can allow you to study whenever you find yourself with a few extra minutes and are bored with Angry Birds.
Evernote even allows you to clip webpages, drag and drop images, and collaborate on assignments with friends. I have Evernote set up so that each notebook reflects a college semester, and each note inside the semester notebook represents a class. I further organize my information based on class notes, book notes, and paper research. Using Evernote and organizational skills, I now have access to every note, paper, research assignment, and thought I have written or created since day one as a college freshman.
Evernote is free and can be downloaded for every operating system currently available. There is a premium account that increases the size of your web-storage; however, I still have not exceeded the free storage space Evernote provides. In my opinion, Evernote is one of the most powerful and useful tools for college students, professors, and professionals. Check it out at www.Evernote.com.
