We recently launched the Evernote API, which allows third party developers to integrate Evernote functionality into their applications and services. In this series, we will highlight some of the most exciting integrations.

Curio, in their own words

Curio is Zengobi’s award-winning note taking, mind mapping, brainstorming, and task management application for Mac OS X. Its innovative freeform interface promotes visual thinking, a more natural way to gather, associate, and recall ideas.

Curio + Evernote API

Curio 5.4 helps users organize their thoughts and ideas. Now, everyone from creative professionals to students can use any version of Evernote to capture their inspirations, and have that content automatically appear in Curio. UPDATE: For more information on the integration, read the Curio 5.4 release notes.

Why this is cool

Evernote is all about giving you the tools to capture your thoughts and experiences as they happen, which is why we’ve developed over 7 different versions for desktop, web, and mobile devices. So, no matter where you are, there’s always a version of Evernote within reach.

With this integration, you can easily take what you have been gathering in Evernote and automatically bring it into your Curio workflow. Take a note or photo using Evernote on your mobile device, and you will it have it waiting for you in Curio when you return to your desk. Once in Curio, those notes, snapshots, web clips, and research can all be used to help you brainstorm and, ultimately, complete your projects.

    How limited is this time? I tried the coupon and got the following message: We’re sorry, the Coupon/Promotional Code you have entered has already been used.

    It looks like a great app, though!

    • Andrew Sinkov

      @Hadewijch I just did a test of the coupon code, and it is still active. Must have been a temporary issue.

  • Savvy

    Well, this is a cool app and I am currently trying it out.
    But I don’t understand how it actually integrates with Evernote; there is no explanation on that in your post and I don’t seem to find any specific functionality inside Curio linked to Evernote. Could you provide more information on that? Thanks.


    • Andrew Sinkov

      @Savvy You must have Curio 5.4 installed. That version has Evernote as one of the tabs in the right-hand shelf. There’s more information available here:

  • Hadewijch

    @Andrew, thanks! I tried it again, and saved myself some money!

    Is there going to be either a Palm or Linux Evernote client?
    Windows has its charms (such interesting aesthetic choices), but if I’m travelling light (without the Mac), I have my Eee, if I’m stripped to the very bone I have my Palm.
    It would be great to be able to Evernote at any time: especially as my wife has stopped me writing notes in bath crayon on the bathroom wall.

  • Mike Belisle

    I have an old IBM T-22 that I run Ubuntu Linux on and would love to have my favorite Evernote on it. I vote for a Linux version!

  • Michael

    Zengobi is no longer honouring the 20% discount.

  • Chad Merkert

    I run Ubuntu Linux as my primary OS, and would really like to see a Linux version! it would really get me using Evernote again. Hope this can happen some day soon.

  • Myke

    Ditto what Chad said! Please make a Linux version (Gnome based preferred). I also use Ubuntu.

  • Adam

    Linux is my main operating system and I too would like to see a linux version of Curio.

  • Pratik

    Any way to revive the discount?

  • Dale L.

    There is a LINUX version of Evernote – it’s called Nevernote and you can find it here:
    There’s just a few requirements to get it running… follow the instructions and visit their forum!

    You can choose between 32 bit or 64.

    I got it working fine and it runs well…!

    After that, you can add the evernote webclipper to your browser…
