“Use evernote as the place you put everything… Don’t ask yourself which device it’s on- it’s on Evernote” – this is how The New York Times describes the app. Over 100 million+ downloads, this app is nothing less than a blessing for students in particular and for everybody else who likes to keep their work organized.
It provides almost any format like notes, memos, checklists, etc. and also helps in organizing texts, PDFs, audio, video etc. It will ease your work as it can do task management and also provides the feature of archiving. You can also add members that are people who might be helpful in your work. So don’t let the brain storming wait.
