Angela Randall 29-11-2012

Have you been collecting awesome notes and information in Evernote for a while, but not really experimented with the many Android apps and widgets you can use yet? Well, if this sounds like you then you’ll love today’s line-up of apps.


We know there’s a good number of Evernote fans and Android fans lurking on MakeUseOf, so we thought we’d make a list of apps and widgets fans of both would appreciate. So here’s the best Evernote apps and widgets for Android!

The Official Evernote App

Of course, the Evernote App should be the very first app you add. Everything you can do with other apps can be done via this app, as well as allowing you access to everything you’ve already added to Evernote.

The Official Evernote Widget [No Longer Available]

If you have the official Evernote app installed, the Evernote Widget app is the perfect accessory. The widget gives you easy access to all the most popular Evernote functions. There are two widgets you can use: the smaller one lets you add text, audio or snapshot notes quickly, as well as letting you search; the larger widget will do all this as well as show snippets of recently viewed notes.

If you’re trying to memorise something you’ve put aside in Evernote, then Revunote is the app for you. Revunote uses spaced repetition to ensure you revise in a timely manner, so whatever it is you’re hoping to learn will eventually stick in your mind.
