"Evernote is definitely one of the apps I use everyday. It helps me stay organized and scales up my productivity. However, the app has even more to offer when used with other partner apps. These apps  are particularly useful in expanding Evernote functionality  and in providing you with a richer and organized experience."

These are great apps if you use evernote
Lou Salza's curator insight, June 1, 2013 5:02 PM

I started using Evernote for storing notes from meetings so I could retrieve them on any device at any location.  It is searchable and does way more than keep notes stored and accessible. This site will lead you to excellent explanations of Evernote and its functionality. It can be particularly useful  for teachers and their students !--Lou

Vicki Butler's curator insight, June 7, 2013 2:30 PM

I need explore the power of Evernote.  The power to use this as a 'notebook' for learners intrigues me.
