For me, it was a no-brainer.
"Oh look, here's Evernote," I thought. "Well, I wanted to learn it and it looks like now's the time."
|From "Best iPad Apps" by Peter Myers|
Evernote is ranked by the book as the "Best App for Gathering Research." Being the type of reporter who loves the research gathering process, this seemed right up my alley.
I downloaded the free version of the app on my iPad and figured I'd be Evernoting it away in no time.
It opens up to a blank page with a little text letting me know that I can save any search I want to by creating a saved search. How do I do that? No idea. I tried figuring it out that night. No luck.
So far, I've figured out how to create a new note and add photos and audio to it. Not exactly the range of cool stuff I was expecting.
Just like figuring out how to use the ancient version of iMovie on my Mac laptop back when I was in college, I expect this to be a bit frustrating but overwhelmingly worthwhile.
And when it's all said and done, I'll have learned something I really wanted to learn and will make sure all of my coworkers can have an easy-breezy time learning and making use of this.
Stick with me for updates and please, if you've got some tips on using Evernote, leave me a comment!
