Windows Phone 7 App of the Week: Evernote

Maximum PC Staff

If by some chance you are unfamiliar with Evernote, you should sell that rock you’ve been living under and visit our Evernote Cheat Sheet . Evernote is a must-have app for every smart phone platform on the market, but if you are a Windows Phone user you’ve probably been making do with OneNote and Windows Live Skydrive up to this point as Evernote has only released their Windows Phone app in the last week or so.

Smart phones are intended to make our lives more organized, ease communication, and remind us of important things we might otherwise forget. Evernote uses cloud-based technology to synchronize your text, voice, and image based notes between all your devices and makes them accessible via the web. Images containing text go through an OCR process, rendering the recognized text searchable. The Windows Phone app also makes use of the phone’s GPS and location services to allow you to save a note based on your current whereabouts.

Evernote applications are free, as is the basic cloud service. Premium accounts are available for $5 per month or $45 per year, and bump the monthly usage limit from 60MB to 1000MB.

Evernote is also available in the Android Market and the iTunes App Store . Be sure to check back next week for another Windows Phone 7 App of the Week!
