Evernote on the iPad is a powerful productivity tool, so ensure you make the most of it.
Sync notes between devices
While the iPad is incredibly useful, Evernote doesn’t lock you to a single device. The beauty of Evernote’s cloud sync features is that you can jump between computers, smartphones and tablets during the day and pick up where you left off.
Syncing is especially useful for those times when you don’t have your iPad at hand. It lets you quickly turn to the Evernote app on your smartphone to capture an important note or recall key details.
Photograph important information
There’s no need to jot down all the important information on a sign, such as the holiday opening hours written on the window of a nearby store. You can simply snap a photo with your phone and save it directly into Evernote.
You can tag images and file them in notebooks. Even better, the app uses Optical Character Recognition to automatically find text within an image. This means if you photograph a sign on the wall, a business card or even an entire document, you can easily find it when you need it. The Evernote Scannable app even turns your mobile device into a fully featured document scanner.
Take handwritten notes
Evernote’s Penultimate app for the iPad supports handwriting recognition. This lets you use a stylus to jot down thoughts, sketch out ideas and take down meeting notes. Thanks to Penultimate’s Drift feature, the page will move along with you and automatically adjust to your pace as you write.
Once again, this is all converted to searchable text so it’s easy to find what you’re looking for.
You can import audio recordings or else record within the app while you take notes. It’s a useful way to record meetings or capture audio notes. Simply open the note where you want to create an audio note and click the microphone icon in the Menu bar along the bottom edge. You can even take advantage of speech-to-text to dictate notes into the app.
Share notes with colleagues
This is where Evernote becomes an especially powerful business tool. It lets you share specific notes and notebooks with colleagues to ensure everyone is on the same page.
Evernote is a handy way to share a meeting agenda along with meeting notes for those who couldn’t attend. When sharing project notebooks with others who use Evernote, you can set up note reminders to notify others whenever you add or update notes.
