    I've heard a lot of good things about evernote, and thinking of downloading and trying it out.

    WOuld like to hear from users how you use evernote, and what makes it so good?

    I have a bunch of notes on paper, and study guides, that I would like to read on my ipad / mac, and not have to carry around my folders with all these pieces of paper. Not sure if evernote is a solution to this problem or not.

    I use it for all kind of note taking, both personal and for work. The advantages for me lie in
    - cross platform sync
    - hierarchical tagging
    - ability to share note books
    - easier to switch between notes than in a regular file system
    - my email client has great evernote integration, so I can easily convert emails to notes, there's also a good web clipper for Evernote

    Best for me too is it Syncs across iPad Mac & iPhone

    I found this "how-to" guide to take advantage of Evernote's features. There are a few steps, but the result is definitely worth the effort, in my opinion.
