People within spitting distance of me have heard a little about Evernote. I like Evernote a lot, for ways that probably I won't be able to fully take advantage of for too long. So when I saw this article in LifeHacker today, I had to re-post it.
Evernote is a piece of technology you use through your phone and your computer. You take a photo on your phone of something you want to remember. The photo saves on to your computer, then you can search for the photo later as a reminder, except what's so very cool about Evernote is that the technology reads the words inside your photos.
Here's some examples, pretty rudementary ones at that, of how Evernote could be used:
- Take a photo of a shop window, then search later for brand names to get your reminders
- Take a photo of your receipts and find what's in them in the future without having to file them
- Scan or take photos of your notes and search for them one day in the future based on the words you wrote
- Launch a competition online, and no need for entrants to follow tagging and uploading instructions. Everything's findable more easily
- Every photo on the web searchable by its contacts instead of its tags and its titles... hmm. Google or Flickr to snap up Evernote maybe? (Evil Google had to make it into my list...)
And here's a video on how Evernote works, from the makers themselves. Check 1:30 into the vid for the good bits.
Any ideas from you on how Evernote could be used?
