13) What’s Your Fave Note-taking "Grass-Catcher" App?

I (Doug) remember the first time I came across a computer application designed to help me remember all those loose items in life. “Who was the author of that book? What’s the name of that hotel in Paris that has a fantastic rate on an amazing room in the perfect location? Remind me which shuttle service we used in Bangkok. What are the names of all my neighbors?” I finally realized – this was the perfect reason that computers were invented: To help us search massive amounts of information and find knowledge. So when you think about all the applications you’ve ever seen that are perfect for that challenge, which one wins in your mind? I had been using Microsoft OneNote. But frankly, I’ve become interested again in Evernote lately. You might have another fave. Would you click comment and tell us briefly why?

7) Cool Tools: How to Remember Every Random Fact You Ever Heard

evernoteYou only need one word to answer this item: Evernote. It’s fast, it’s synchronized (with every device you own), the notes are always available off-line, and it’s full-featured. Basically, think of it as a funnel into which you can throw all your ideas, goals, things to remember, notes, and everything else. On the other side, you can retrieve everything. It has been said that the spreadsheet application virtually CREATED the market single-handedly for the personal computer. Why? Because paper spreadsheets were made SO obsolete by computerized versions. To me, Evernote is another one of those apps.


3) Evernote Essentials

evernote-iconYou’re probably already a big fan of Evernote, the ‘grass-catcher’ digital note-making application for smartphones, tablets, and computers. I’m not sure there could be any better app for remembering and tracking loose bits of information.
