The top jotter app for iPhone and iPod touch

Evernote Review

by on January 21, 2011

Folksy and simple it may be, but for the seriously studious, Apple’s native Notes application just doesn’t cut the mustard. For those in need of a quick spot of note-jotting, Evernote is the pro’s choice for iPhone.

Four flavours of note-taking facility are at your fingertips: a plain text note; a “snapshot”, which uses the iPhone’s camera; “camera roll”, which opens up your iPhone’s photos folder and lets you tag snaps you’ve taken earlier; and voice memo, which starts a countdown from three before launching into voice recording.

Once notes or photos have been taken they can be tagged, annotated and e-mailed around, and on a free account (there is a premium service available for £2.99 per month or £26.99 per year) the storage allowance is a passable 60MB – great for short notes or low-res iPhone snaps; not ideal for audio clips or big image files.

All notes taken on your iOS are accessible online at evernote.com and are searchable by their names, tags and content, but by far the coolest addition we found to Evernote was the app’s ability to search through text copied with the camera – we took photos of webpages and magazine articles and found Evernote magically effective at tracking them down just by using search terms that cropped up in the photographed text.

If you’re just looking for a way of send and store simple files, then Evernote might seem overly complicated compared to something like Dropbox, but for jotting down simple reminders it’s a brilliant little free addition to your iOS device.
