One of my favorite tools has to be Evernote.
It is such a simple and straight forward program… it takes notes… so what exactly makes this tool so wonderful? Well – the way I see it is the collaboration. Basically your notes are stored online on their servers. This allows you to login from your iPhone, your windows laptop, your iPad, etc… and have access to the same batch of notes.
They even allow you store images and what not inside the notes… I rarely end up doing that – simply because I don’t need to… but I have saved a few – and I have never even gotten close to the limit for the free monthly usage plan. With the free account you see a small ad down on the bottom left – but hey – who cares… a great productivity tool for free!
