Qrobe The Peer to Peer Search Engine Evernote Brings Widget, Share Extension to iOS 8 I save everything into Evernote. While I’m almost religious about plain text and Markdown for my articles, anything else goes into Evernote: PDFs, screenshots, photos with GPS information, my shared shopping list, and any other note that has a visual component (such as formatting or hyperlinks).

For Evernote, quick note creation has always been an issue on the iOS platform. The widget is simple, but useful. The share extension is amazing. Evernote 7.5 is available on the App Store.

Sure enough, I found I could add my other account as an alternate email address so I could forward these invitations to Gmail and get them on my calendar. Two items worthy of mention: This process doesn't apply to Gmail addresses; they must be from non-Gmail accounts). Here are the steps involved. 1. 2. 3. 4.
