Evernote makes it easy to remember things big and small from your notable life using your computer, phone, and the web.
- Chances are, if you can see it or think of it, Evernote can help you remember it. Type a text note. Clip a web page. Snap a photo. Grab a screenshot. Evernote will keep it all safe.
- Everything you capture is automatically processed, indexed, and made searchable. If you like, you can add tags or organize notes into different notebooks.
- Search for notes by keywords, titles, and tags. Evernote magically makes printed and handwritten text inside your images searchable, too.
