How good is your memory?
If it’s anything like mine, it’s probably terrible.
I forget things all the time, which is why I rely on tools like Evernote to capture day-to-day information that I want to reference and use later on.
Evernote markets itself as a digital tool that, like an elephant, remembers everything.
The basic version of Evernote is free while the premium version costs EUR 5 per month or EUR 40 per annum.
The latter package provides advanced collaboration and sharing features along with offline access to notebooks on mobile devices.
I’ve had an Evernote account for several years but until recently, I struggled to get the most out of this service. After a bit of investigation, I figured out how to use this powerful digital tool and improve my memory.
Here are nine great Evernote tips and tricks:
1. For Class Notes
I recently attended a Photoshop class where the lecturer shared an Evernote notebook full of image ideas and articles with students. This struck me as a really clever use of Evernote because:
- Evernote is free and anyone can use it, even cash-strapped students.
- Evernote is geared towards the capturing and sharing of images.
- The lecturer added extra articles and images to the notebook as the classes progressed, thereby making our class notes dynamic and relevant.
