Ever­note power tips

Master one of the most use­ful iOS apps around

Mac Format - - IMPROVE -

For many, Ever­note is in­dis­pens­able. The abil­ity to grab con­tent from just about any­where, sync it and share it with any de­vice linked to your ac­count means you al­ways have that cru­cial re­search in­for­ma­tion, recipe or check­list close to hand. Now Ever­note is on the Ap­ple Watch too, the notes are even closer to hand – lit­er­ally and metaphor­i­cally.

There’s a lot more to Ever­note, how­ever, than just typ­ing in new notes, mak­ing au­dio notes or grab­bing clip­pings from the web. It’s Ap­pleScript­able, for ex­am­ple, so you can au­to­mate the cre­ation of notes on your Mac us­ing tools such as Au­toma­tor and Hazel.

The iOS ver­sion has a To­day wid­get in iOS 8 which al­lows you to cre­ate new notes with­out open­ing the app. Ever­note has a chat fa­cil­ity so you can share ideas as well as notes, and Re­minders so you can set alerts for notes. And if you al­low it ac­cess to Lo­ca­tion set­tings, it can tag notes with your lo­ca­tion – a use­ful aide memoir if you tap only the briefest of de­tails into a note.

There are other fea­tures lim­ited to the Pre­mium ver­sion of Ever­note, such as sup­port for Touch ID. But the free ver­sion is hugely pow­er­ful on its own. Here are three tips to get more from it. Kenny Hem­phill
