Social Media Search Tool | WhosTalkin? 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). I started using Evernote in 2009, and it’s become an external brain where I archive everything that I need to remember but not store in my own brain. Evernote suffered in its transition to iOS devices as it couldn’t be as flexible as the Mac app: Evernote is only as good as the ways it gives you to create notes, and the iOS app couldn’t use the best one – the clipper. This is changing today with Evernote 7.5, which adds extensions for iOS 8 to let you save anything from anywhere with just two taps. 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.
