I mentioned previously that I recently picked up one of Moleskine’s Evernote notebooks – long after they were first introduced, so I’m not blazing any trails in this area! Essentially, these notebooks are created with the note-taking app in mind, allowing you to scan them into the app with your iPhone’s camera. After a week of […]

I’ve only spent a few minutes toying with the new version of Evernote for iOS, but I have to say I’m impressed. This newest version (Evernote 8.0) seems to be a complete rebuild of the app on iPhone and iPad and is a big step forward. For me (and others, if you simply google it) […]

You may recall I got very excited by a start-up called Postach.io come time ago. Simply put, their USP was taking your simple Evernote notes and turning them into a simple blog. Just tag a note as ‘published’ and it appeared as a new blog post.


I quickly fell in love with it, due to its simplicity, its tight integration with Evernote (one of my favourite apps of all time) and how I could quickly write in Markdown.

The guys over at the Mac Power Users podcast spent a while reviewing the various options we iOS users have when it comes to Notes apps. The podcast covers the pros and cons of the popular apps, including: Apple Notes, Evernote, OneNote and just using plain text files (!!). You can listen to the notes […]

Great news if you’re an Evernote user (check!) who also relies on IFTTT (check!): “Evernote just got a whole lot better“. You can now, for example, post to Tumblr simply by adding a note to a pre-determined Evernote notebook. This makes offline Tumblr post writing much easier, especially when using and iPhone. Or, post to […]

Those who know me in real life know I’m something of an Evernote fan. An Evernote evangelist, even. I’ve used the app for years and spent quite some time singing its praises on this blog and elsewhere. Over the years, Evernote has helped me get more organised when traveling for business; it has helped me […]

I travel a lot. A. Lot. Mostly for business, mostly short trips to UK cities and occasionally further afield. Personal trips too, mostly within Europe, but at least once a year something to either North America or (like last year and later this year) Asia – in the form of Japan. And in all this […]

The really very excellent Postach.io has joined the Evernote App Centre. What’s Postach.io, I hear you say? If you use Evernote, it’s an idiot-proof method for turning notes into a perfectly serviceable blog. It’s definitely idiot-proof as I’ve managed it – took about one minute to get it up and running. I really have a […]

After my recent blog melt-down and apparent loss of (about) two year’s worth of writing, I’ve decided to adopt a “safety first” approach and ensure this never happens again. Aside from scheduling regular back-ups of the WordPress blog itself, I’m also using the very excellent “If This, Then That” (IFTTT) service to send all new […]
