I found this little gem today.
On your desktop you can highlight some text and send it to evernote. In a web page or email you can do the same. You can take a screen grab and send the image to evernote. OK – not bad but the best is yet to come.
You can do the same on your mobile and the ‘notes’ are synchronised. OK -Cool- but wait
All the notes are searchable (as you might expect) BUT – images are scanned for text so you can take a photo of a product in a shop for example, send the image to evernote and the text in the image is searchable. OR Kids could photograph the whiteboard and search their notes collection for just the right one. Now that’s nice.
Oh yes … it’s free.
