Harness the power of Evernote for Mac, a popular cloud note-taking and note-sharing tool. This course begins with a look at ways Evernote can help you note and track important items and then build and work with notes and collect notebooks for sharing. Author David Rivers also shows how to take and store photos, screenshots, and even video in notebooks. Plus, the powerful tagging and search features help keep your notes organized and accessible. The course also covers the notebook sharing and protection features, so your privacy is maintained at all times.
When you create your Evernote account, you're automatically signed up for the free version of Evernote and you can start accessing it right away over the web. If you were following along with me in the previous movie where we registered our email after signing up for Evernote, we arrive at this Welcome to Evernote screen. Notice in the top right corner, you can sign into Evernote and start using the online version right away. But, to take real advantage of the benefits of Evernote, you'll also want to get it installed on all of your devices. This includes any computers you use, and your mobile devices like tablets and smart phones.
So, you'll notice from this welcome message we have links to get Evernote for Mac, because we're on Mac and Evernote knows what we're using. There's a link to get Evernote for your mobile tablet, and other devices. As well as a link to continue using Evernote online or on the web. There's another option, though, that we don't see here. And that is the premium version. To see what that's all about, we're going to leave this screen. Go up to the address bar, click in there, and just go to evernote.com. Now from this main website you can see Get Evernote.
It's free down below and clicking this is actually going to send all the necessary files to your downloads on your Mac so you can start installing it on your Mac computer. But up in the top right-hand corner, you could also sign in to the web version. Or there it is, a couple down, Go Premium. Let's click that link to see what it's all about. Alright, a premium account is going to cost you five bucks a month. Or you can pay the yearly price of $45, which actually works out to just $3.75 a month.
And why might you want to go premium? Well, there are a number of reasons listed here so let's go through them quickly, beginning with supersized uploads. Now, both the free and premium versions have monthly upload limits 60 megabytes and 1 gigabyte respectively. There's no total upload limit so you'll never have to delete notes to make room for more. But if you find yourself uploading more than 60 megabytes of pictures and audio files in a month, the premium account will definitely be worth it to you.
Right, let's move on to Top Priority Support. If you're a free user your access to support is via email and they will respond to you within one business day California time. The time frame is essentially the same for premium users but you're at the top of the queue rather at the bottom. I've never had a need for support, so I can't comment on how good their support actually is. But not needing the support is a great testament to the quality of their product. Let's go to Offline Notebooks. You can create online and offline notebooks in both versions of Evernote but you can't change their type after the fact.
Now, if you want to be able to work with your online version while you're offline, you'll need the premium version to take it offline when you don't have a network connection. Let's go down to work together here. You can share entire notebooks via Evernote Web whether you're a free or premium user. But if you want to allow others to edit those notebooks or collaborate with you you will need a premium account. Just below that we see Larger files, Bigger notes. In the free version, the maximum note size is 25 megabytes. In the premium version, you can create notes as big as 100 megabytes. Lets go over to faster image recognition.
Both the free and premium versions feature searchable handwritten notes, or what we call text recognition inside images. But the premium account receives priority access to this. While the free account will take a little bit longer, free account users have noticed a lengthy delay in this recently. So if you love this feature as much as I do, I recommend opting for the premium version. Let's go to the Passcode Lock section down here. If you're going to be using Evernote on your iPhone or iPad or on your android smartphone or tablet, the premium version let's you lock the Evernote app for some added security. And saving this for last, PDF and document search.
Now, the free version allows you to upload and sync images audio ink and PDF files. The premium version allows you any type of file whatsoever and you'll be able to search for text in a PDF something you simply can't do in the free version. So it's your call only you will know if the premium version is something you're going to need. If you're not sure just try out the free version for a while. You can upgrade to premium at any time. For the remainder of this title I'll be working with the free version.
