Make notes on almost anything you can think of with Evernote.

Using the app allows you to save as much information as you want when you're searching for things online or if you simply want to make notes about a shopping list or tasks that you need to complete. You can also take notes for a class or while you're at work. After you have made notes, you can organize them into different sections so that they are easier to find when you need them later.

Evernote can be used for addresses that you need to keep up with, special dates, such as birthdays or anniversaries, school shopping lists and web fragments. Personalize the formats to make them unique, making them easier to find. Change the color of the background of the note as well as the font and size. Use a different color for the text with each note that is made. Underline important aspects of the notes, and create bold headings to stand out for when you're looking at your notes and trying to find specific words and details. You can also include images, but this sometimes makes the app a bit slow to process.


  • Make multiple notes
  • Personalize information
  • Link pages


  • Upgrades sometimes aren't compatible

There's a new section called "Shared." View all the notes and notebooks people have shared with you in one place.

Potentially dangerous permissions

  • ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access approximate location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION.
  • ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access precise location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION.
  • CAMERA: Required to be able to access the camera device.
  • GET_ACCOUNTS: Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.
  • READ_CALENDAR: Allows an application to read the user's calendar data.
  • READ_CONTACTS: Allows an application to read the user's contacts data.
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
  • READ_PHONE_STATE: Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.
  • RECORD_AUDIO: Allows an application to record audio.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
  • INSTALL_SHORTCUT: Allows an application to install a shortcut in Launcher.
  • INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets.
  • READ_SYNC_SETTINGS: Allows applications to read the sync settings.
  • READ_SYNC_STATS: Allows applications to read the sync stats.
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
  • SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW: Allows an app to create windows using the type TYPE_SYSTEM_ALERT, shown on top of all other apps. Very few apps should use this permission; these windows are intended for system-level interaction with the user.
  • VIBRATE: Allows access to the vibrator.
  • WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
  • WRITE_SYNC_SETTINGS: Allows applications to write the sync settings.
  • android.permission.AUTHENTICATE_ACCOUNTS
  • android.permission.MANAGE_ACCOUNTS
  • android.permission.USE_CREDENTIALS
  • com.android.vending.BILLING
  • com.evernote.gcm.permission.C2D_MESSAGE
  • com.evernote.permission.C2D_MESSAGE
  • com.google.android.c2dm.permission.RECEIVE
  • com.sonymobile.permission.CAMERA_ADDON
  • samsung.snote.permission.EVERNOTE
