On the other hand, EverNote is like Dropbox as it saves your notes and then gives you access to them from any device.

Moreover, it’s more than mere a simple notepad, as you can store snapshots and recordings as well, and it will synchronize the files as per your device. Searching a particular file is very easy as you can find it with the help of any given key word or predefined tags.
There are probably thousands of apps available; however, the selection of the most suitable one, which could help you manage your life and business easily, is a tough job. Above written apps are very useful, but you can go to your device’s app store and choose the one, which are more rewarding and helping for you. Particularly, before downloading some paid app, you need to carefully analyze its importance and vitality for you and your business. If you think that marginal utility of downloading it exceeds the marginal cost, you should go for it.
