I noted earlier this year that Livescribe has been running a special promotion whereby Echo smartpens come with a free 12-month subscription to Evernote Premium.
I’ve been aware of Evernote for some time – particularly when it was included in the launch pack of connectors for Livescribe Connect.
Given I travel a lot I was frustrated at the note taking app on my iPhone so I finally bit the bullet and registered for the free subscription upgrade.
I have to say – I’m very happy I did. Evernote is a great application and it’s been a pleasure using it. Some of the features I like include:
- The iPhone app is exactly what I was looking for – now my notes are synced between my phone and Mac
- I can send hand written notes from my Livescribe notebook directly to Evernote. This allows me to include Pencasts in folders with other content.
- I can capture images, video, random thoughts and scraps of blog posts anywhere I want to and then organise them via Evernote.
If you haven’t tried Evernote – I’d recommend giving it a go. The offer of 12 months of Premium finishes 31 January 2012.
