Have you heard about Evernote? Our librarians are big fans of the resource, now available on a wide range of devices (web, desktop, Android, iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, and Windows Phone 7).

It can be used to create notes from text, audio, photos, attachments, location-based information, and tagging – which are saved to the cloud. Evernote is an effective tool if you want to find quick and easy ways to organize your life. It can be helpful for study, to remember to buy milk or groceries, and to save content needed for class.
