iPhone Evernote

Evernote is truly the most useful iPhone application I have come across. Long story short it is a note taking device. But it is of course much more than that.

It allows you to make a Text, Photo or Voice note. but again that is not all. It can read text within pictures which is then made searchable, and on top of that it geo-tags all the notes you take on your iPhone so you know where the note was taken.

So, for example here is a perfect situation to use it:

  1. You park your car at the Trafford Centre, you often forget where you parked and spend ages in the cold looking for your car.
  2. Take out your iPhone and open Evernote.
  3. Take a picture of your car or better yet a sign detailing the parking section.
  4. Do your shopping.
  5. Open Evernote.
  6. Open the picture note you created earlier, tap “Details” and “View on Map”
  7. Maps opens and places a pin where your car is.
  8. From there you can make your own way there or even ask Maps for the directions.
  9. You are at your car, happy and warm.

    Evernote rocks and I like your use case.

    We recently integrated our project management application Pelotonics into Evernote. You can now create tasks and messages related to projects using your Evernote information. It’s pretty innovative and handy. I put together a few use cases here: http://www.pelotonics.com/evernote_usecases.html

    I would love to see what you think about the marriage of technologies.
