I recently converted to evernote for recording notes, lists etc. For any college or uni student evernote is a must have. Here are my top 5 reasons to use evernote:
5)Evernote makes it extremely easy to record and organize notes. I mainly use it for "to do" lists, but there are many applications for it.
4)Evernote automatically syncs your notes from the desktop application to their webservers. Your school won't allow you to install programs, or you want to check your notes at a buddies house? No problem, you can view your notes online on evernote.com
3)Don't bring your laptop to class? Evernote syncs to your ipod touch, iphone, blackberry, pre, or windows mobile device. It is great to have my notes everywhere I am.
2)Evernote is available on the mac and on the pc.
1)-It's free. As long as you use under 500MB per month (which is impossible to hit with text only), evernote is totally free.
