Evernote CEO, Paul Libin likes to call Evernote the "external brain," where things that you typically cannot remember on a day to day basis can be automatically stored and retrieved at a later time, thus never ever forgetting anything.

Evernote is an easy to use application that enables you to quickly capture data, pictures, information, virtually anything you can think of or see and store it for later use. Evernote works on Windows, Mac, on any web browser, camera, or mobile phone. Super flexibile with usability.

I have to admit that I have used Evernote in many of the ways that Paul Libin recommended:

  • Taking a picture of a business card

  • Capturing notes from a white board

  • Copying a favorite web page

  • Clipping a recipe for my wife

  • Saving a Cakebreaad wine label last year when I was in Napa County

It's amazing how easy Evernote captures any form of information! Evernote is dummy proof!

On the backend, all your content is stored in the cloud on Evernote's servers which can then be synchronized across all your devices. Whether it's your iPhone, Mozilla browser, Mac OS, you have access to all your important data instantly.

I'm signed up for the free Evernote version but they also have a Premium version that's only $5 per month! It includes full file synchronization, 500 MB per month of storage space and SSL data encryption.
