Evernote by Connie

Name of App: Evernote

Cost: Free

Device/s used: Ipad

What was good about this tool?  
Evernote is a word processing app, similar to Pages on Macs or Microsoft Word. This app, like many, can be used on portable devices and therefore you can carry on at home with work that you started in lessons. Notes/Documents can be stored in different Notesbooks. For example I have ones for my individual subjects. Documents can then be sorted by date created, date updated and the title. When it comes to actually creating the document there are many tools to help you. Inserting a photo is very easy, you can use photographs you already have or take one there and then to use. You can also add audio recordings which may be useful for quick notes and other peoples. Documents can be given a geographical location as well as 'tags'. These tags can be,  for example, similar themes or subject matters. So if you need to just look at theories in Psychology, you can tag them while making the document then search for just them in Tags when needed for revision. Or if you just need to revise the equations that need to be learned for Chemistry and Physics, you can find the right documents under Tags too.

What was bad about this tool?
Be careful to back up documents as in the two years I have been using it, it has once lost my documents but i did get them back as Evernote back them up to their online servers.
