  • “I’m also getting hooked on this note taking tool for my iPhone too” Stephanie Horden
  • “Almost everything I write starts in Evernote. Blogposts, papers, lessonplans, etc. Even when I’m making notes on a piece of paper during a meeting, or scribble some ideas on a beernapkin, I take a photo with my iPhone camera and ’scan’ it into Evernote for further use. I’m using Twitter to tweet ideas, thoughts and information straight to Evernote. All my notes are synchronized between Evernote for desktop, iPhone app and web”. Jeroen Bottema
  • “Great way to archive digital and scanned paper documents, and find later. One of our customers built an impressive, award-winning Evernote demo, which you can learn more about and view here”. Gabe Anderson
  • “A new one for me and becoming central to how I work. Evernote is how I store all my work in progress, notes and research. Ideal because it has a desktop client but synchs up to an online database” Clive Shepherd
