Just today as I was writing this post, Evernote was hacked. In an article in the LA Times, Evernote representatives said that hackers were able to gain access to users’ email addresses, user names and encrypted passwords. Fortunately, the hackers were not able to access any of their files or their payment information, the company said.
That said, I still think that Evernote is worth checking out. This cloud-based note-taking app, or rather, family of apps, is very popular in the personal organization/productivity space, and if you are anything like me, getting high-tech help remembering things, is well, very helpful. (See this article by Jeffrey Kishner about his fave three digital organization tools: Evernote, Omnifocus, and OPML.) With Evernote, you have everything in one place – notes, images, documents, web clips and audio notes. You can search and sync across your devices—that alone shaves minutes off my day.
Now You Can Organize Your Food
I have always been obsessed with food. From making my first bread recipe up at age 12, to attending a macrobiotic class with a friend ten years later (and then eating that kind of diet for a few years), to the latest minicupcake craze, I’m all over food—and the new Evernote for Food. (And something tells me I am not the only woman on this earth with this obsession.)
Evernote Food v2.0 was released in December of 2012. (See blog post about it here.)
Just to be clear: by organizing your food, I don’t mean keeping it in neat piles on the plate and making sure the piles don’t touch. It’s really about remembering your food, and your food experiences (good and even bad)—dishes, people, and ambiance.
Oh, and did I mention it’s free? So you can keep your money organized, too.
