What if you had a perfect memory that could instantly recall every brilliant thought, earth shattering idea and moment of inspiration no matter where or when you need it with perfect accuracy? Well until technology let's us 'upgrade' our brains with some kind of memory chip, Evernote is probably the best tool around to instantly improve your productivity by acting as an extension of the brain you've got today.

Let's say you're sitting in the park brainstorming on that new business idea while using Evernote on your Nexus 7 Tablet and you want to see a bunch of notes you took earlier in the day while using Evernote on your mobile phone. If you filed that note under 'business idea' you'd simply do a search and presto...all your previous notes on that subject would pop up from today, yesterday, a week ago, a month ago...whenever! Not only that but let's say you had a particularly great idea a few weekends ago but you forget what you filed it under. You can thumb through your notes and see WHERE they were taken because everything in Evernote is 'geo-trackable' as well as organized by time. Evernote gives you multiple ways to link together, free associate and find all your information so it's usable for you when you're ready. All your notes are laid out for you in an easy to swipe calendar like interface so you can see exactly what you thought and when you thought it! Pretty cool, eh?
You can also attach image files, drawings, web sites, audio files and virtually any other type of document, media or file and it all becomes instantly searchable and connected in context with everything else. You can even record audio notes, music or any other sound source to a note. If you've been looking for a great way to organize receipts and track expenses...Evernote can do that too. You can even use it to organize the people and business contacts in your life by snapping or attaching a photo or a business card to a note of the 'who and why' about that person. You can further organize your notes into different 'notebooks' soo if you want to share notes pertaining to a class you're taking with your classmates...it's as easy as tapping a few icons.
Evernote has recently been updated with a ton of new 'tablet friendly' features that make the layout perfect for your Nexus 7. If you're looking for the best note-taking app around, Evernote gets raved about by everyone. It's definitely worth trying and it'll quickly become an indispensable part of your life helping you become more productive and acting as a 'supercharger' for your brain. 'Evernote' is free for the basics and for some of the more advanced features there's a premium charge. You can grab it and try it yourself at the link below at the Google Play store.
