I cannot say enough good things about Evernote. - - - I came across it about 6 months ago and use it several times a day.

Even though the AAII Computer Investing article is fairly short, it does a good job summarizing Evernote's features. I would emphasize and/or add these features to the list:

* Evernote converts words in pictures, images, and handwriting into searchable text.
* You can associate an Evernote Note to a particular Topic, Person, Location (or any other relevant attribute), making it easy to find at a later time.
* Evernote associates a Note to your location (any place in the world) when you create it (geo-tagging).

But, arguably, the best thing about Evernote is its ability to "capture" information from sources without you having to type it in. "Information" can be text, images, pictures, audio, even video on some devices. Sources include: Anything you see on the Internet, an email you send or receive, a file on your computer, a picture on your smartphone, a scan of paper, a voice recording, and your webcam.

I developed a PowerPoint presentation that I have given to groups and individuals. I would be glad to email a copy to anyone who wants one. Send me an email at so that I know where to send it. (You will need Microsoft's PowerPoint version 2003 or higher to open it.)

Please note. The presentation I developed is for the general use of Evernote. It is not geared specifically for investing purposes. However, here is a list of ways to use Evernote for your investing activities:

* Capture investment articles you want off the Internet.
* Capture charts and numbers off the Internet.
* Make a list of tickers on your watch list.
* Create and maintain a list of investing web sites that you check out periodically.
* Write down the buy and sell rules of your investing strategy.
* Capture descriptions of companies, their products, customers, facilities, and plans.
* Retain copies of your technical and fundamental analyses.

BTW, I do not work for Evernote Corporation. I do not receive any compensation from them. None of them have ever taken me out to dinner! I promote Evernote because it's a really helpful and valuable app.
