Parenting stretches one's ability to keep track of details, especially in this data-heavy age. With paper calendars, sticky notes and address books straining under the pressure, an ongoing stream of Web- and mobile apps have stepped in to take up the slack.
In Parenthacker circles, Evernote gets mentioned quite a bit as exceptionally useful, easy, and flexible (and free). Evernote has been around for quite a while, is trusted by millions of users, and is available on just about every platform imaginable, including the iPad 2's nifty smart cover.
Evernote lets you take notes, or clip digital files, then save them in collections called "notebooks," which you can annotate, tag, and search, and then access anywhere. There's more to it, but that's the gist. It's one of those apps that lends itself to so many different uses it's difficult to pigeonhole.
I thought it would be fun to find out how Parenthackers are using Evernote, given your collective intelligence and problem-solving creativity.
I use Evernote to clip Web-based crochet patterns so I can tag and search them, then access them on my phone. The Evernote blog profiles a bunch of interesting uses.
If you're an Evernote user, leave a comment telling us how you use it. I'm sure there are plenty of ideas the rest of us hadn't considered.
If you don't use Evernote, which notetaking apps do you use?
