Evernote is an application that allows you to securely save, easily sort and sync, and then use information and notes for business, daily activities and hobbies.

The abilities of the human brain are incredibly wide: from solving the most complex mathematical problems in the mind to knowing several foreign languages. However, remembering information takes some time, sometimes a lot, and therefore sometimes we need something to help keep the necessary notes, materials and memories close at hand.

This is where Evernote comes to the rescue.

On a long trip, when you usually have to carry a pile of papers with you with important information like flight number and departure time, tourist routes, city maps and much more. Evernote helps you save precious space in your suitcase.

One has only to download the application to a smartphone or tablet, and everything will become much easier – all the necessary data will always be at hand. And thanks to a well-thought-out tagging system, convenient search and division into notebooks, you can easily navigate through all your entries.

Photos and videos – invaluable sources of travel memories – can also be stored in Evernote.

Various lists, whether it be books that you need to read, movies you want to watch, or lists of important numbers – all this will no longer get lost among the countless files and folders on your computer, and your desk will not be littered with small pieces of paper with to-do lists, information about meetings and other daily concerns.

If it often happens to you that you find an interesting site on the Internet, and then lose it among your bookmarks, and sometimes you just don’t remember why you saved this or that page, then Evernote can be a good solution to the problem.

With it, you will be able to save the web page you need or only part of it, and read it at your convenience.

Evernote syncs your devices so you can access important information anytime from your phone, tablet, laptop or computer. In addition, Evernote allows you to collaborate on projects with your colleagues thanks to the ability to set up document sharing.
