Even though it is not perfect, it is a great tool
I love Evernote and have been using for years. There are a few glitches (the clipper doesn't always work well) but it is so convenient and has replaced what used to be multiple sticky notes on my monitor and desk.
- Easy to use - Easy to share - Notebooks, tags make it very easy to come back to items later - Notebooks make it easy to share ideas and thoughts on particular subjects
- I hate the Mac app - after reinstalling several times, I simply use the web version now (locking up, taking up disk space, etc.)
There isn't really anything else like it...
Saving ideas, tutorials and research I want to read later or share with others.
I can clip ideas for clients and share a notebook with them and save and tag research links I know I will want to look at in the future.
I purchased Evernote as a tool and have not done a formal ROI.
Again, with a free version, definitely try it! I used the free version for about a year before really finding a groove of how to best use daily, get email out of my box for things I wanted to deal with later, check in with tags for now, soon, later, in progress, etc. and needing the premium version.
