BlackBerry app: Evernote


Developer:Evernote Corp.

Price: Free

This app is paired with a browser-based desktop and is designed to let you share text and audio notes as well as Web page snapshots and other files between platforms and with friends. The app lets me create text notes and audio recordings that I can name, tag and upload and then access online, or, in theory, pull down onto the handheld with a less-than-useful search engine, which just takes me to the Web interface in my handheld browser. And on my computer, while I can access the notes, I can’t download them, which leaves me unclear on exactly what the point is, and why I don’t just e-mail myself and save the hassle.
