“Evernote is a cross-platform, freemium app designed for note taking, organizing, and archiving.” (Wikipedia). It has been my main go-to information and research organization tool since 2009. Anything I need to document, organize, or remember goes into Evernote. It is invaluable for research planning, for logging my research steps and progress, to take on research/road trips, for capturing and retaining what I learn at conferences and institutes, and helping me make better sense of both my paper trail and DNA research.
