How To Use Evernote: The Missing Manual

How To Use Evernote: The Missing Manual | k12 Blended Learning - K12 | Scoop.it

Are you a digital packrat? Are you in need of a searchable repository for everything you want to recall later? Does the idea of automatic OCR (Optical Character Recognition) for all your scanned PDFs get you excited in a way only seriously organised people could ever understand? If so, Evernote is the tool you need right now – and we’ve got the perfect manual to get you started using it like a professional.
