Melissa Marshall's curator insight, September 23, 2013 9:24 PM

Evernote has to be one of my favourite organisational apps. I am scanning documents into Evernote and using it as a diary - the hope is to run a paperless office at home in the near future (or only file those things that absolutely need paper copies). Evernote stores my stuff securely everywhere - all the images are searchable and you can tag items for easy searching. It is also a great app for student note taking and organisation. 

Viljenka Savli (http://www2.arnes.si/~sopvsavl/)'s curator insight, September 26, 2013 2:51 AM

New features with new iOS 7 come also with Evernote, so it is even more functional and easy to use.
