Evernote art

Phil mentioned that Evernote has not only been the subject of books, but also immortalized in art. Here’s a sculpture at a gallery in Moscow, Russia.

    Volumes could be and perhaps have been written on ways to use Evernote but there seems to not be any place where these treasures have been documented in a consolidated, organized way. I’ve been using computers in some way for more than forty years and obviously I’m retired now. However, I still have a lot going on and some guidance on ways to use this most excellent tool would be very helpful in reducing my stress level.

    You mentioned todo lists and other things involving special techniques or tools with which I have only a last century familiarity. It’s hard to get answers from a FAQ when you don’t know the question or its context.

    I could see using todo reminders that bug me on my phone or wherever I am focused. I could also use shopping reminders and many other memory-joggers. I can get most of those services from various tools on my phone, laptop or web but they are all disconnected and don’t talk to each other. Each must be managed individually. Evernote could probably solve this dilemma but I don’t know all the fine points it seems to take to make it happen. For example, what is there in WebOS that would put a picture I’ve taken into Evernote? In fact what is there in Windows XP other than copy/paste for moving anything into Evernote?

    If I seem frustrated, I am and I’m counting on you guys to help fix that.

    Speaking of voicemail box: voice memos in evernote?

    • Phil Libin


      You can make voice notes in most of the mobile clients and drag audio files into any of the desktop clients. Lot’s more functionality around this is in the works.

    I am using Evernote more and more since I started.

    I’ve just brought a snapscan & loving it! I’ve recycled sooo much paper!
    One question – sometimes the jpgs are the wrong orientation – I have to go into paint, rotate, save. Can you enable rotation of images (& pdfs?) from right mouse click?

    First: Evernote rocks!

    I am into GTD for a few years now and I use OmniFocus as my main GTD app and Evernote for reference. These are the two most important apps in my system, always running side by side!

    I just would like to be able to reference Evernote notes to OmniFocus. Just a reference by UUID to the document in Evernote that would work on every device I have (MacBook, iPhone, iPad). I prefer only a reference because I don’t like to have documents attached directly (physically) to OmniFocus as it slows synchronisation and I’d have multiple copies of the same document again all over the place.

    I heard either Omni or you talking about a tighter integration of the two apps about a year ago but I can’t remember where. Any news or plans about it?

    This would make my live so much easier (again). It is just so obvious that the two apps should be able to talk to each other. (Maybe I just missed something?)

    Greetings from Switzerland and keep up the brilliant work.

    Check the iTunes feed. I don’t think it’s working.

    Love the podcast!

    Hi guys,

    I’m a premium user and love both the Evernote app and the podcast, I run Windows, Mac and iPhone versions (so far). I’m a learning GTDer and I picked up egretlist which is a fantastic app which plugs in to Evernote.

    On the En Website there is a page called ‘works with us’ about hardware.

    You make such a good job of promoting apps which work with Evernote on the Blog and the Podcast, why is there no page listing apps which work with evernote. The example I would equate this with is basecamp at http://basecamphq.com/extras.

    I’m really keen to see what else works with Evernote and rather than searching through podcasts and blogs, a single page would be awesome.

      Geoff, the Works with Us page (www.evernote.com/about/integrations) has tabs for Hardware, Mobile, Web Services, and Desktop. There are lots of different apps listed there.

    I have wanted a widget type Evernote app for Windows or Mac so I do not have to take up disk space on all my computers with redundant notes. I am a premium Evernote user and use it on my Droid, my Windows laptop at work, and my iMac and Macbook Pro at home. I do not need to load down my laptop drives with all the notes as both are always used with the internet, besides I can always download a note with my Droid.

    I found a way to have my cake and eat it too with Fluid http://fluidapp.com/. Fluid can be used on a Mac to make any web application a desktop program complete with an icon for the dock.

    I made an Evernote Lite app with fluid to try it out and it works great!

    Just wanted to pass on the information.

    I was just wondering if i can save the photo taken through evernote in my own phone gallery? sometimes i want to take the pictures with my comments, but after that i can’t just view the pictures all together on my phone.
