    If you're anything like me, you forget nearly everything. Luckily for us, there's the Evernote app.

    Evernote allows you to save almost anything, and lets you access them on any computer and, of course, your Android phone. After you download the app and set up a free account, you're ready to go. You can record voice notes, take "clips" of web pages, snap photos, upload files, write memos or to-do lists, and you can even save tweets to Evernote using your Twitter account.

    The practicality is why I love it. You can record a shopping list and listen to it while in the supermarket. Or if you're browsing the web on your home computer and see something that you could use at work, just take a "clip" of the web page, and access it in the office or on your phone - whether it's a day or a year later. Tasted some great wine while on vacation? Take a picture of the label and keep a record of it.

    Probably the most impressive part of Evernote is the speed at which information is saved and synced on one device and readily accessible from another. It takes only seconds. Also, the ability to assign tags to everything you save makes it all super-easy to find.


    • Wonderful organizational app.
      Simple to use.
      Tagging makes finding your stuff easier.
      Ability to email any of your notes.
      Works on phones with Android 1.5 and up.

    Needs Improvement:

    • A home screen widget would be nice.
      Songs cannot be uploaded to Evernote.

    Final Verdict: Evernote is the perfect app for people who would forget their head if it wasn't attached, or for those who remember everything, but need one place to put them all. So I guess it's great for tons of students, artists, travelers, professionals and, thankfully, forgetful husbands like myself.
