AOTM #1- Evernote

Hello! I've decided to start a new series called "App of the Month" or AOTM for short. It's pretty much all explained in the name, so all I'm going to say about it is that the apps will be of all different genres. This month's app is Evernote, if you aren't familiar with it, it is a note taking app very comparable to the likes of Microsoft Word, except, in some aspects it's much more basic. 

I'd been looking for an app to store notes for an array of subjects, I wanted something that could sort different subjects into folders or something similar. I also wanted something that would let me draw diagrams and have them in amongst the text. Evernote does all of this, you can group your "Notes" in "Notebooks" and add tags to your notes so they are easy to search for! 

One of my favorite features of Evernote is the document camera. You know those times when you want to take pictures of some notes or even just a piece of paper so you have a back-up when you lose it (maybe this one's just me!)? When you take a picture normally perhaps the lighting isn't fantastic, resulting in your picture turning out blurry and your note unreadable. Sound familiar? Well the Evernote picture adds an-almost white-out effect making the blank spaces on your text whiter and thus more readable.

The other thing about Evernote is that you can access your files on any device, it's not a feature I use all that often but it is something, nonetheless. One of the big things that I don't like about Evernote is that it costs. You pay $6 a month or $56 per year for the premium version. Personally I just have the free version as it suffices for what I want it to do but often there are times when something along the lines of "upgrade to access this" pops up. Which, as frustrating as it is, to me seems perfectly justified. Evernote does do a lot, connects with a bunch of other apps and offers a lot in the free version so I can see why they'd charge. 

Anyway, let me know in the comments, do you have Evernote?
