I have written before about Evernote. It is one of the most useful programs I have ever used and, when I purchase a new computer, Evernote is one of the first applications I install. Evernote is a note-taking application that allows you to write notes or to copy-and-paste text and pictures from web sites, email messages, screen shots, voice memos, or most anything else. Best of all, for the person with two or more computers, Evernote will even copy the notes to all the Windows and Macintosh computers you own. You can even access your Evernote notes from an Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, Android, or Blackberry cell phones. Evernote is a free application for up to 40 megabytes a month of file storage. More storage is available for a modest fee.
I now have more than 2,000 notes stored in Evernote and love being able to find any one of them within seconds by typing one or two words from that note into Evernote. The Evernote software instantly retrieves every note that contains those words.
The folks at Fujitsu have now created a nifty free configuration utility that will set your Fujitsu ScanSnap Scanner to the optimal settings for use with Evernote. You can insert one or multiple pages, press a button, and the pages will be scanned in stored in Evernote. As soon as your various computers and cell phones are connected to the Internet, the documents will be copied to each. You can scan and copy pieces of paper, business cards, documents, and even precious napkins with drawings on them.
The new utility is written for the Fujitsu ScanSnap Scanner but the producers say it should work on most other brands of scanners as well. However, they only guarantee operation on the Fujitsu ScanSnap Scanner.
Unfortunately, the new software only works on Windows. A Macintosh version has been promised for the near future.
