It’s happened. I’ve gotten to the point where if something isn’t on my phone, there’s no chance of me remembering it. If it’s not in my calendar, I won’t be there. If it’s not on my task list, there’s no chance of it getting done.
Evernote is always at my fingertips, helping me remember and access all my thoughts and information, and I was looking for a way to better integrate that with my task-oriented life. For example, I’m going grocery shopping next week (I know this, because it’s on my calendar)—what’s on the shopping list? Or, I’m going to a party on Friday—what’s their address, and what am I supposed to bring?
Awesome Note to the rescue. Awesome Note is an iPhone app in the Evernote Trunk that handles all those questions and more. It’s a note-taking, task-managing, calendar-handling app that syncs with Evernote, so all of your information is available whenever you need it.
Why this is cool
Awesome Note lets you take notes, organize them by folder and sync them to Evernote. Individual notes can also be exported from one app to another. For me, it’s the sync that is the most impressive. Awesome Note creates folders called “[aNote] YourFolderName” in your Evernote account, and any notes that you place into those folders are automatically synced between the two applications.
Awesome Note also integrates Evernote with your task list and calendar, giving you the option to create tasks and events and attach Evernote notes to them. One glance at your calendar or your task list, and you’ll know all the information you need to get going.
You can transfer notes to other Awesome Note users via Bluetooth, and you can email or text notes and tasks to anyone. It’s a great-looking, super-customizable app, as well. You can have it look like anything from a pad of paper to a chalkboard, all for your note taking pleasure.
Get Things Done in the Trunk
There are all kinds of productivity applications available in the Evernote Trunk, from apps like Awesome Note to tools like Nozbe and Reqall. Each one hooks into your Evernote account in useful ways. Explore the Trunk to find your favorite.
