Evernote for Android review

FREE

Manufacturer: Evernote

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

Backups to the Evernote server are automatic, providing peace of mind. This app is equally useful to a student, a mobile worker, a small-business owner and a busy mum.

Evernote is one of the more established productivity apps for smartphones and tablets. Much like the elephant that symbolises this app, Evernote aims to ensure you never forget an appointment, a half-remembered message or task, or lose track of a web page containing important information. It’s like a clipping service for your brain, and has the immense advantage of being free to use across multiple devices.

Create an account on your PC and you’ll then be able to log into it from any web-connected device. We had problems with account creation on an iPad; important messages stating that our account name format was invalid didn’t appear. We used an Android tablet instead, and didn’t even need to wait for a confirmation email.

Evernote is a doddle to use. Click the page icon to create a new note; tap the pushpin to log your current location; take a photo; and install the optional Web Clipper widget to start collating web pages. Location data can also be stored with your notes.

You can tag items and add them to private or selectively sharable notebooks. For family-tree, business or scholarly research, these soon become invaluable.

Verdict: Backups to the Evernote server are automatic, providing peace of mind. This app is equally useful to a student, a mobile worker, a small-business owner and a busy mum.
