Ever what?

Many of my friends know that I recommend Evernote unequivocally. Evernote is my personal repository for all kinds of information, accessible from just about anywhere. Evernote runs on Windows & Mac, iOS & Android, and even as a web application (Windows Phone, PalmOS, BlackBerry, Windows 8 Touch, Safari, Chrome and Firefox too!). Regardless of the platform(s) on which you run Evernote, it keeps your personal information synchronized between all your devices and PCs.

Evernote is incredibly useful, but many first-time users have difficulty understanding what it can do for them and how to use it effectively. Lifehacker has published a great article that walks you through several uses that illustrate what it does and how to do it. Here's another article here that you may also enjoy.

What do I use it for? Keeping track of my web accounts, interactions with customer service reps, all the places I stash my money, scanned contracts and other important documents, project pictures, drawings & documents, tips & how-tos, manuals for my appliances and many, many other bits and pieces of information that I don't want to lose. It's fully searchable, quick & convenient to use and very portable. Try out a free account for yourself, install it on your portable devices and then see what you can do with it.
