    Evernote is a cross-platform, freemium app designed for note taking, organizing, and archiving.

    The app allows users to create a "note" which can be a piece of formatted text, a full webpage or webpage excerpt, a photograph, a voice memo, or a handwritten "ink" note.

    Notes can also have file attachments. Notebooks can be added to a stack while notes can be sorted into a notebook, tagged, annotated, edited, given comments, searched, and exported as part of a notebook.

    Evernote Premium features:

    Offline notes
    Your notes are available anywhere, anytime, even without an internet connection. Perfect for flights, international travel and working on the go.

    Passcode lock
    Make sure only you can access your notes. Add a layer of security on mobile devices to protect your valuable information such as business plans, receipts, health information, and photographs.

    Business card scanning
    Leave behind your stack of cards by scanning them using Evernote's camera. Capture and store all contact information, a photo of the card and choose to automatically pull additional profile details from LinkedIn.

    Presentation mode
    Present directly from your notes in a full-screen layout for more collaborative, efficient meetings.

    PDF annotation
    When a picture’s worth a thousand words, you can avoid lengthy email dialogue. There’s no quicker way to call attention to contract edits or design changes.

    Context and Knowledge Discovery
    Context reveals notes with related content and documents, and Knowledge Discovery identifies co-workers who are experts on the topic or project you're working on.

    Faster image recognition
    Find what you’re looking for, faster. We scan your images faster, so text within them is searchable sooner. Find text in handwritten notes, Post-it® Notes, whiteboard drawings and more.

    Search in PDFs and Office docs
    Your files are easily searchable within Evernote. Quickly locate your Office and work documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and PDFs.
