Interesting Updates

A couple of interesting updates for iOS devices recently . . . The Flickr app has some performance enhancements and a new “group card” feature that makes it easier to follow what’s going on in your favorite groups. Probably the most significant update is that you no longer need a Yahoo email address to create an account […]

Evernote Update

Evernote does listen to their users and they learned – quickly – that we aren’t happy with the proposed privacy changes.

Import Files to Evernote on iPhone

You won’t believe how easy it is to import and attach a file to a note in Evernote on your phone. This includes photos, scanned images, PDFs and office documents.

Link to an Evernote from Your Genealogy App

I use Evernote and the MacFamilyTree/MobileFamilyTree combo to manage my family research. Both genealogy apps share the same data files which reside in iCloud.

Society Evernote: The Policy and Procedure Manual

One society I belong to maintains their policy and procedures in a three-ring binder. Each board member and staff position gets one. I’m estimating that they cost approximately $120 to produce. This could explain why the policy and procedures manual hasn’t been updated in years. Unfortunately, reality (and technology) has changed significantly and many of […]
