How Evernote makes my life easier

Evernote is a great way of organizing your life. It is a free cloud synced notebook available from your computer, smartphone and tablet. You are able to save and share text, pictures, web pages, PDFs and more.

My main uses for Evernote are:

Storing receipts and warranty info

I scan the receipts using my printer/scanner and it sends the scan as an email to my personal Evernote email address. When starting Evernote next time (or force sync it immediately) I get the receipt in my notebook. Evernote automatically recognizes scanned text (OCR) thus I am able to search for a receipt containing specific text (maybe the OCR part only is available when using the paid premium version).

Web clippings, articles, recipes

When I find interesting products, articles or recipes when surfing I can clip the page (or part of the page) using an add-on to my browser. This easily copies the information and puts it in Evernote.

Taking screenshots of presentations when attending web conferences

When attending web conferences, Evernote is a super easy way of copying the currently viewed slide to either Evernote, clipboard or to a file.

Everything you store in Evernote can be shared with others or only be available to you. Also, for example, when attending confidential company meetings you most likely are not permitted to upload those slides outside the company, instead you can put them in a locally stored part of Evernote, only available on your current work computer.

Yes, I would like to recommend Evernote. It is a great way of storing and organizing all the information you want to keep for later easy retrieval.
