Evernote – now has reminders
I’ve been steadily becoming a fan of Evernote for some time. It syncs with home and work computers and my Nexus 4 smartphone (plus the family tablet) and makes it really easy to move stuff around (remembering to delete the note if it is just to move something)
- Key information is available to me at all times
- I use it for bookmarking websites to go back to : the same bookmarks are then available on all devices
- I use it to keep recipes – I can stand my phone or the tablet up in the kitchen to follow as I cook
- I use it for my shopping list, add things to it anywhere I am, edit it, and carry it round the shop with me
Now that Evernote has a Reminder function, it becomes possible to use it as my To Do list, for which I have recently stopped using Remember the Milk and Astrid (the free versions don’t sync often enough or are missing other features).It has tagging and categories (notebooks) within a To Do stack, so I can continue to use my kanban board process. I’ll describe that in a later post once I’ve got to grips with the interface… I’m slightly concerned that not all features are available on all versions of the app.
