I find them both excellent products which will probably work just fine for most companies, but there are a few nuances here and there between them which are worth analysis.

Evernote: A 0-to-60 MPH Guide

In All Platforms, Cloud, Strategy, Teaching on 09/24/2012 at 8:50 am

Evernote really can help you remember just about everything.

Evernote is so flexible and valuable you’ll wonder why it took so long to hear about it. Between my phone, my work computer, my personal laptop, and increasingly on an iPad, Evernote helps me keep track of all kinds of things. I use it to track work projects, save recipes and software tips, save (and search for words in) pictures of labels on products I want to remember, to-do lists, voice memos, and a lot lot more.

Evernote is many things to many people because it’s so powerful. But for the same reason, Evernote’s purpose is vague enough that it can be hard to get started with it. First, you have to figure out what it can do for you. Here’s a guide to how to think about Evernote, so you can get better at using it.

This paragraph from Jon Mitchell’s Evernote: A 0-to-60 MPH Guide at ReadWriteWeb above is as good a quick intro as you’ll find. There’s much more about using Evernote in schools and in higher education. Evernote has their own page full of resources for using it in education.

Useful.
