SIG-Computing Topic: “Evernote – What it is & how I use it for 2021”

Presented by Hewie Poplock

Evernote is a note-taking application that allows you to quickly capture your notes in different formats, whether is audio, images, or simple text. Its structured system of notebooks and tags makes it easier to safely store your information and find them later again through a powerful synchronization across your devices.

Best features include: the web clipper to save snippets or whole pages from the web, a powerful handwriting search, rich editor, templates, document scanning & much more.  Evernote works on Mac, iOS, Android, Windows, Chromebooks, and the Web. 

Hewie Poplock of the CFCS Windows SIG (WinSIG) is a member the APCUG Speakers Bureau.

From distrowatch.com: “AV Linux is a versatile, Debian-based distribution featuring a large collection of audio and video production software. Additionally, it also includes a custom kernel with IRQ threading enabled for low-latency audio performance.
