So I’ve totally had Evernote on my iPhone for at least a year, but I didn’t start using it until I bought an iPad. And a few days ago, I downloaded the software onto my laptop.
Evernote is really awesome software that allows you to save all your notes, ideas, photos, and even voice messages. And it will sync to all of your devices. So say you’re out and about and have just your iPhone. You can bring up the app and take photos, write notes, basically jot down your ideas, and save it. When you fire up your app on your iPad or computer, it’s all there. It’s pretty brilliant.
I’ve been using it to brainstorm ideas for shoots. Gone are the days of having 46 different folders scattered about my laptop without rhyme or reason. Or keeping 17 tabs open in my web browser (Cent calls me the “Tabs Queen”). You can also install a plugin for your web browser, so with a click of the mouse, you can add a page or image to Evernote.
Why haven’t I been using this software sooner?!
Anyway, that got me thinking that it would have been a great tool to have while planning our wedding. (And it was probably around but I didn’t know about it yet.) I remember sitting in my cubicle checking out blogs for ideas, scouring The Knot for ideas (most wedding blogs were still in infancy), and have a bajillion bookmarks. Most never to be seen again. Or, I would right-click and save the photos and then insert them in a Word document to print out. If only I had Evernote back then.
And since the holidays is a popular time of year for engagements, I figured this would be a great to share with those who just getting started planning!
This is a screenshot of my Evernote window with an image from the Fossil website that I liked.
Oh yeah, and Evernote is FREE! For up to 40MB a month, then there’s a paid subscription if you use more than that.
Do you use Evernote? Do you like it?
Happy wedding planning & Happy Friday!
PS. I’m not getting anything for singing praises about Evernote, I just really like it, and thought you might, too!
