My Evernote 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Books on computer programs/systems tend to be so detailed one misses the concepts of what can be done for first click here then here, etc. This made Evernote very easy to learn the basics while learning what was possible to do, how to enter it and how to find it later on. Of course, finding what you need and making ot presentable to share with others is whatmakes Everrnote a truely useful system. My main use of Evernote will involve genealogy which involves lots of detail and different types of media. This book helped me get a great start!
