Evernote: iPhone app review


Evernote is one of those applications that will someday be the mainstream way we interact with computers and devices: snap images of wine labels, book covers, sales receipts, and let Evernote process the text contained within to make recall that much easier. As for its iPhone app, the four input methods are Text, Snapshot, Camera roll, and Voice. Text is straightforward; Snapshot is for new images and Camera roll for already captured ones; and Voice is for messages to yourself. But very handy is the Notes bottom tab, which gives you access to all of your notes in your Evernote web account (which itself is synced with your iPhone and desktop versions). You can call any note to view, edit details, and even email to anyone else. For Evernote items you keep in public folders, this becomes a competitor to online storage services such as Box.net and Dropbox. I’m not a heavy Evernote user yet, but someday we all will be.
