Apps I Love … Evernote
As part of my "almost" paperless classroom project, I have been using Evernote for a couple of years. About a year ago, I had been deciding between Evernote or Microsoft’s OneNote for my preferred note taking application. I had been leaning towards OneNote for my personal notes. I love how OneNote will record audio and help link the audio recordings to notes. I also love OneNote’s interface with the side-tabs and drag and drop capturing of work.
When Evernote 3 came out, I quickly began leaning towards Evernote. First, Evernote is Free; OneNote is not. Evernote supports cloud computing with its web-based account synchronization; OneNote does not. Evernote has a portable version for USB drives; OneNote does not. Evernote has Windows Mobile and iPhone versions; OneNote does not. This list goes on for features in Evernote, but not in OneNote. So far, the one missing feature that I occasionally use with OneNote is the recording of audio while entering a note. Hopefully, this feature will make its way into an upcoming Evernote update.
