I started using Evernote to help organize information for work. But as I used it I saw it as a great tool to collect, organize and retrieve any information – like all the great ideas and recipies I see here on SMF!
Evernote is a suite of software & services used for note taking and archiving. A "note" can be a piece of formatted text, a full webpage or webpage excerpt, a photograph, a voice memo, or a handwritten note.. Notes can be sorted into folders, then tagged, annotated, edited, given comments, searched and exported as part of a notebook. It works on PC’s, Macs, iphones/pads, and android devices. And it also has synchronization – I can get my “notes” on any PC on the web, and my smartphone.
When I’m online and I see a post here, or a recipie on another website, all I have to do is hit one icon, and it clips the “article”, or entire page. I have a “cooking” notebook set up, and tags for recipies, and various categories of foods (BBQ, Charcuterie, Beef, Pork, etc). It’s easy then to sort and retrieve things. It even clips the pictures – so you can see them as well. Best of all – the version I use is FREE!
I had clipped Pop’s brine recipie one day at work over lunch. Then over the weekend in my kicthen, I brought it up on my andriod based phone – easy as pie!
If you are looking for a easy way to collect, store, organize and retrieve recipies online, I’d say check it out!
