Evernote Adds 'Quick Note' Feature to Speed Notetaking

Tuesday March 12, 2013 4:33 PM PDT by Jordan Golson
Evernote has upgraded its menulet item to enhance the workflow of its users who take notes frequently. Users can click the Evernote icon in their menubar from within any application and immediately begin typing a note, or can even drag files directly to the icon to upload them to the service.

Use Quick Note to:

- Create a text note instantly. Pop it open with CTRL-CMD-N, type your note. CMD-Return to go back to what you were doing
- Add images and attachments by dragging the image up to the Evernote elephant icon
- Create an instant audio note and grab screenshots with the Helper options
- Have several things to clip to one note? Just keep opening the note with Helper and drop things in as you go
The update has not yet gone live on the App Store, but users can download the new version directly from Evernote's website.

Evernote is a free download from the Mac App Store. [Direct Link]

Surprise surprise...

My app, Rapid Note, does exactly that, but better as it allows you to use a global hotkey and very soon will have iCloud support and free, accompanying iOS app.

Maybe sometime someone will make a post about me :rolleyes:

If any one was interested, you can check it out here: Rapid Note (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/rapid-note/id468548067)

Just noticed that it has also support for a hotkey. My bad.


So does your app also have full featured clients with a consistent UI on Windows, OSX, iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone, extensions for most every browser, not to mention full-featured editing from any web browser?

Thought so. :rolleyes:

I know that feel. MR prefers to only report on apps that most people already know about. I think at this point everyone who checks the MR forums ever knows about my app, but only because of how frequently I've plugged it for the last year.

Yeah but your app costs money and you don't have an iOS app yet. :)

Evernote is free across the board.........

Hopefully your app gains some traction and is recognized here. But I doubt they are going to pay much credence to a snarky post.
