It feels like it’s been around forever, but this organiser still has plenty to offer the photography enthusiast
What the app does
This app helps you to stay organised when you’re doing research for a photo shoot. You can keep everything arranged here in electronic notebooks, to which you can add your own photos, notes, web images and even entire web pages. You can do all of this on the desktop version, then sync this to your mobile device, or vice versa. The free Evernote Basic offering syncs on up to two devices, while the subscriptionbased Plus and Premium versions give you syncing on unlimited devices and a larger monthly upload allowance.
When to use it
Evernote is a smart option for the travelling photographer in particular, as you can pool all of your travel documents, booking details, emails and research into the one place. It also enables you to put together checklists (for kit, say) if you’re planning a shoot, and take snaps of documents and sketches from directly within the app, ready to annotate and add to a note.
How to use it
Make individual notes or a whole notebook, then clip information into them from web pages – with hyperlinks fully preserved. Copy and paste photos, annotate them with hand-written notes, text or icons and type up notes before hitting the Sync button, which uploads the content on to a server. You can also share notes and collaborate with other Evernote users.
