Use cases have ranged from taking notes for research for writing a book, planning events and even taking notes for class. Evernote is avaliable on every major smartphone platform, on PC and Mac, and even as a web client, making all of your data accessible and searchable from anywhere.

Each note can then have tags associated for deeper organization, and using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software even text in images are searchable.

The free account allows up to 60 MB of data per month while the premium can upload up to 1 GB and has more bells and whistles.
