Slightly limited feature set and a more basic look than the classic Evernote
Platform: Windows 8 compatible
Sharing information can make productivity far more easy, not just for yourself but for other people in your organisation. At vnunet.com, we use a content management system (CMS) which enables us to upload images. However, we don’t need four different images from Mozilla Firefox. If we need to put up a news article on Firefox, we simply search for relevant images, attach, publish. Saves the effort of duplicating images across various articles.
However, you could apply this technology to your own work. Even better, if you could find a tool that would enable you to synchronise your notes, images and thoughts across different desktop computers, irrespective of operating system, even better.
Evernote is both a desktop application and an online portal for storing and accessing your notes and other important information. Simply add notes, images and thoughts to the Evernote application and these will be synchronised with your online account. Launch Evernote on another computer, sign-in to your account and the notes will be synchronised back to the new Evernote. This is irrespective of whether you’re running Evernote on Windows or a Mac.
We’re hoping the developers go one stage further and enable you to share some of your notes with other Evernote users, much like the facility to share your music through iTunes or your documents via Google Documents. It would be good if you could use Evernote to store information which could be used by other people, as well as your own work. Much like your own CMS.
The Windows 8 version of the app is visually different from previous versions, but the basic idea is still the same. It utilises a tiled interface and everything you store in your account is presented in a clean and uncluttered way. There is also ‘snap view’ which enables you to display the contents of Evernote in a smaller window.
This version of Evernote is optimised for touchscreen devices so provides a slighlty more imited selection of the usual Evernote features in a more lightweight package.
