Personally, I was surprised to see a lack of native support from Evernote when Blackberry 10 launched. I mean sure, you could use the Remember app for a quick Evernote fix, but native offerings have always seemed… I dunno much more important to me. Call me crazy.
Why is Evernote so important you ask? Why not use another application available in Blackberry World? Well, you see Evernote offers cross-platform use. If you own multiple devices like an Android tablet, or iOS handset you can use those and even open Evernote in your browser. If you prefer a native desktop solution you can get your hands on an Evernote desktop client, as well.
Naturally, it makes sense to take advantage of a note taking app that you can use from anywhere. Unfortunately, we all know that Evernote has yet to release a true app for the Blackberry 10 platform. Until now, that is.
Evernote is now available in Blackberry World for use with BB10 devices. The funny thing is, it’s been around for a while, but only usable on devices running a leaked 10.2 build. That’s because it comes bundled with the 10.2 OS natively.
If you’ve never used Evernote before, it’s relevant to note that it doesn’t just support text based notes. You can record videos, voice memos, add photos and much more. You can either store the content locally, or you can upload it to a cloud storage account. If you choose to upload the content then you will be able to access it from anywhere. To be perfectly honest, I use the platform to write a lot of my articles while I’m out and about. Then when I get home I can finish them up via a web browser or alternate platform.
Want some other ideas on great ways to use the app, say no more.
- For research and class notes
- For client and sales meetings
- To stay in-sync with your desktop notes, web clips, and files
- To snap photos of whiteboards and business cards
- As part of your GTD system to help you stay organized
- To record quick voice memos
Easily search for notes created on your desktop or web using your BlackBerry®. Whether from last week or last year, all your memories are in one place, available whenever you need them. You can even search for printed or handwritten text within your snapshots – great for business cards, whiteboards, and wine labels.
The best part is that the app is completely free to download on any and all platforms. That means you can use it no matter where you are, without paying a dime. That’s pretty awesome I think, especially when so many companies are just pining for money these days.
Evernote sees regular support from the developers, including plenty of software updates and fixes. If you want to get it for your Blackberry 10 device hit up the widget below.
Have you used Evernote in the past for Blackberry, or any other platform? What do you think? Do you think it’s just as useful as I do?
