Nowadays I use the Evernote app to create notes coming from my not so organized Gmail account. As one of my primary accounts and one I frequently check, my Gmail is inundated with e-mail subscriptions (despite transitioning to a more promising Inbox from Google). With Evernote at least half of the burden is eliminated whenever I copy some notes from Gmail and paste them onto Notes in the Evernote app.
I downloaded Evernote on my Windows 8 tablet PC twice – one from the Windows Marketplace and second was the desktop version. The Marketplace version for Evernote, unfortunately, could not sync my notes in real-time. The desktop version redeemed the great funtions of the app – it was not only syncing notes in real-time but it had more specific tabs, font options and other settings not accessible to the iPhone and Marketplace version.
