Evernote gives everyone the ability to easily capture any moment, idea, inspiration, or experience whenever they want using whichever device or platform they find most convenient, and then makes all of that information easy to find. Evernote makes it easy to remember things big and small from your notable life using your computer, phone, and the web.

Weaknesses:
