Transcript:Overview of Evernote iPhone App

Hey, I'm Jamal Andress with About.com and today we are going to talk about the Evernote App for the iPhone. This free application can help you remember absolutely everything.

What is the Evernote App?

This productivity app allows you to take notes, make lists, capture photos, or record voice memos — plus makes any of those notes completely searchable across all your devices, whether you are at home, at work, or on the go.

How to Use Evernote

From the home page, you can tap the clearly labeled file folders labeled "Tags", "Notebooks", "All Notes" or "Places" for different ways of organizing your notes. All Notes is the default that shows everything in a chronological order.

"Tags" shows all notes under different labels you've attached to them and "Places" organizes geotagged notes by where you wrote them.

Also, using the search bar under "All Notes" everything you've ever added becomes instantly searchable, one of the apps most-utilized features.

Back on the homepage, you can also utilize the three buttons at the top for quick ways to add new things to the app. The paper icon allows users to type a quick note or list, the camera allows users to snap pictures they want to save and the scanner icon allows users to turn pictures of documents into searchable notes.

Premium Features of Evernote

Evernote also offers premium features that can be purchased within the app — from "Go Premium" folder on the homepage or under Account settings, that you can get to by clicking your username. Evernote offers both monthly and yearly subscription options.

Some of the features include the ability to take notebooks offline for access without WiFi connection or internet or adding a PIN to lock the app for added protection.

All Evernote features are tailored to the various platforms you can access them from, whether it be a computer, a tablet or a smartphone. Evernote has received consistently good reviews and maintains 4 stars in Apple's app store, with many calling it their go-to for on the go information storing.

That's a quick look at the Evernote app! For more information be sure to check out About.com
