Evernote LogoEvernote is a note-taking software that is compatible for Mac, iOS, Windows and Android. What’s different about this to other notebook or note-taking software is that it is absolutely free, and comes fully packed with features that you would think would cost a premium.

Evernote automatically uploads everything you put into their server’s, making it available for immediate syncing to all of your devices whether it be your computer, tablet and/or smartphone. The basic unit of information in Evernote is the note. You can collect similar notes in a notebook, creating as many notebooks as you need, or even throw everything in one main notebook. I like to create a different notebook for every class that I have and organize my notes according to the weekly lectures.

Evernote gives you a plethora of ways of capturing notes. You can type directly in the Evernote client, drag text, embed images, audio, videos and even record audio and videos. If you don’t want to type out a graph or chart in one of your lectures, you can just take a picture with your smartphone within the Evernote app and seamlessly embed it into your note!¬†After capturing the desired note, the client gives you the ability to share it via email. You can add tags to notes to help categorize them further, this allows you to find them ease using the built-in search function that scans your entire notebook library. The killer features is the syncing. Documents and notes I keep on my laptop are instantly connected to my iPhone so that I can look at my notes without having the computer with me.

I personally use this as my daily app for taking notes for all of my classes. I believe it is the best student software that delivers the most fluid, seamless and easy to use word processing experience. You can download the computer client at and the mobile app versions at the App Store on iOS or the Google Play Store.
