Lesson Learned: Evernote vs Apple’s Notes

January 2, 2020

Sometimes I jump a little too soon. I absolutely love The Marker’s Yearbook that I reviewed in my last post, and wanted to add to it’s functionality by being able to work on the PDF pages on my iPad. The planner pages I print out from the PDF file I purchased are in a 3 ring binder. My iPad is with me much more often. I started researching and found that Evernote is an amazing system. So I bought in.

Pros
Document scanning
PDF annotation
Easy searchability
Handwriting recognition for searches

Cons
Sharing straight from Evernote only really works if the person you are sharing with also uses Evenote.
When I toggle back and forth on my devices between a note and somewhere else that I’m copying and pasting from, I have to search and find the note every. single. time. Instead of holding the note open so that I can just paste.

Then I found this guy’s video…..

And guess what? Notes – which I already have and use extensively, can do ALL those things. Go figure. I just never pay attention to the updates and never bothered to look at what all the little icons can do. I should. I really should. 

I already have a huge library there. Now I need to organize it.

Lesson Learned: pay attention to what you already have and play with any new little icon you see!

    Excellent advice. I am always kicking myself when I find out what my electronics can do that I didn’t know about.

    I just upgraded to an iPad 2018 with Gen 2 Pencil. MY old notes is full os stuff, but I never really used iT except as a storage bin. Now I am discovering that I can even create art in it, so I need to study up on it.
