when you get back to the office. On the iPad
Pro, Evernote also offers good compatibility
with the Apple Pencil, as it has the option
to add a sketch to any note. I also tested
the audio recording feature on the iPad Pro

Another useful feature in Evernote is the
web-clipper application. After installing
the Evernote extension into your internet
browser, you have the option to save web
pages to Evernote as a pdf, save the link as a
note, or save a screenshot. This application
also had some nice features, like the ability to
highlight text on the webpage before saving it.
As with everything on Evernote, once saved,
your web clipping syncs over the cloud with
all your devices.
If you haven't tried Evernote, it's a great
application to keep your thoughts and notes
