EverNote is a nifty and powerful application to take Notes, web clips, Images. EverNote earlier available as a windows app but now they have introduced web based version and currently it is in private beta. I got a chance to see the EverNote Beta version and i am really impressed with it.
With EverNote you can take Notes, highlight text on web pages to clip it, or take a picture from your phone and send it to your PC or the web. EverNote automatically synchronizes the data, so wherever you are you have the same copy of your notes or clips. The most impressive part of this app is its search for printed and handwritten text within images. You can take pictures of business cards, or anything you want to save as a notes, later you can use text keywords to search with in these pictures.
With EverNote Desktop app you can organize your notes, search, save clips. EverNote desktop has a feature called “Universal Clipper”, click to open this Clipper it will sit in your system tray, whenever you want to clip something click the clipper to clip it or double-click it to open the clipper. Click on the clipper frame button to select a frame of anything you want to clip. You can clip web page, text, images anything you want. It will be automatically sent to evernote.
When you search for something it will highlight everything related to the term including the text within images. See the below screenshot.
Currently EverNote is available for Windows, Web and Windows Mobile Phones. Mac version and a version for Java phones is will be released in the near future.
Overall the application is very useful for saving anything whenever you want. Search functionality is really impressive. This is the best note taking software i have ever used.
