On Evernote

I’ve been playing around with Evernote for the first time in years, and I have to say, the app has come a long way. I’m really pleased with it as a place to catch random bits of information in a way I can get to easily from my Mac, iPhone or iPad.

Currently, I have some text notes, a bunch of images and a crapton of PDFs in there. While Evernote won’t replace writing in plaintext/Markdown for me, it is replacing a bunch of folders I had floating around on my Dropbox in a nicely-designed application.

I’ve found my buddy Brett Kelly’s book “Evernote Essentials” to be super helpful. You really should check it out. I’m about a fourth of the way through it, and have already picked up a bunch of tips and tricks.
