It’s hard to believe we are already in the last month of 2012. For many of us, the winter holidays signify a break from our busy lives to spend with friends and family, but the lead up to this exciting time is often defined by a lot of to-dos, not to mention, stress. To help you keep things organized, we’re compiled a list of great apps that integrate with Evernote that will make your holidays easier to manage.
All about the food
Evernote Food lets you capture, share and relive your memorable meals. Whether you’re eating at home with family or out at a restaurant with friends, use Evernote Food to snap photos of your meal, setting, and fellow diners to create a beautiful photo essay that you can relive anytime, or selectively share your experiences with those you care about. Add location, tags, and captions to note special details and make your meals easier to find later.
The first step in preparing a special holiday meal is researching and finding the perfect recipes. Punchfork is a visual recipe search engine that makes it easy to discover popular recipes from top food sites and save your favorites to your Evernote account so you can access them whenever you need them.
Use Say Mmm to plan your meals, organize recipes, and shop for groceries. By connecting Say Mmm with Evernote, you can automatically create organized grocery lists with nutritional estimates from your recipes and consolidate them into one easy list that you can pull up in Evernote while you grocery shop.
Finding the perfect gift
This app makes it easy to quickly send pictures to your Evernote account. As you holiday shop, snap photos of gift ideas, assign photos to notebooks and tag them to find them later. You can also take pictures at holiday parties, then save and share them with everyone via a Shared Notebook. Even if you’re offline, FastEver will save the photos in queue to send to Evernote when you’re back online.
|Evernote Clearly and Evernote Web Clipper
For those who want to avoid long lines in stores and shop online, the Evernote Web Clipper and Evernote Clearly are lifesavers. Clip gift ideas from any site, and save them to Evernote with a simple click so you can compare prices and finalize purchase decisions in one place. Whether text, an image, or links, everything you need to refer to will be in Evernote on your phone, desktop, tablet, and the Web.
A finalist in Evernote’s 2012 Devcup, Kustom Note lets you easily create templates for your notes in Evernote so you can input necessary information quickly and create nicely-designed notes.
