Evernote (Note storage)

A really cool application to store notes. When we first started using this, we didn’t ‘get it’ – didn’t really appreciate it’s full worth. It was only when we started using it more intensively did we realise its full potential. Great search abilities – great access; from smartphones, iPads, PCs, Web browsers. All your notes anytime. Brilliant.
