Featured app – Evernote
When it comes to staying organised by keeping track of ideas and other information, Evernote for iPhone does the heavy lifting for you. Integrate it with one or two other apps, and you can’t do better.
This free, straightforward note-making and –syncing app outrivals most competing apps thanks to its strong search capabilities, effortless tagging features, and simple organisation. But the real key to its success and popularity is that Evernote synchronizes all your files by saving them to a cloud service, meaning anything you create or alter from your iPhone will be there waiting for you when you log into any other version of Evernote, such as Evernote for iPad, Evernote Web app, Evernote for Windows, and every other platform where it’s supported.
In a nutshell, Evernote lets you create all kinds of electronic files—text files, images and photos, audio or voice memos, and videos—and gives you access to them through a variety of interfaces. Log into any of these access points with your Evernote account, and you’ll be able to read, write, search, and otherwise utilize all your files.
All your files are stored in a cloud-based system, meaning Evernote automatically manages version control. If you know you’re not going to have Internet access, you can save the files you need locally on your iPhone using a feature called offline notebooks (for Premium subscribers only), edit them offline, and send them back to the cloud later, at which point Evernote will update your notes to the latest version everywhere that you access Evernote. If you forget to sync your device in advance, Evernote gives you the option to work on a copy of the most recent version it has stored locally, or work on a blank canvas and append the changes to the stored file later.
