Evernote Is Your Quintessenial Cloud App

NUTSHELL:  Evernote is a Cloud app that allows you to easily capture information in any environment using whatever device or platform you find most convenient, and makes this information accessible and searchable at any time, from anywhere.

What’s so cool about Evernote is how many ways it captures and saves data. Whole areas of a webpage can be selected and bookmarked; photos and videos captured and uploaded; personal voice messages left using applications like Jott; and files synced directly from your local disk.

And this data is indexed on your own Evernote page, to be referenced forever.

(Video is a bit too long, around 4 minutes, but informative)

What’s really mind-blowing is how Evernote can read text from a graphic; it’s revolutionary.  Say someone named Bob gives you his business card.  Go ahead and take a photo of Bob’s card with your mobile device and send it to your Evernote page.  Evernote will translate the graphic to text and index the information. When you decide you want to call Bob, search the name and Bob’s business card will load.

This application is kind of like Basecamp or Backpack on steroids.  Amazing.
