StringNote is an app for Evernote that requires a little bit of introduction. This is an app that’s designed to let users quickly post to Evernote from anywhere. Evernote is one of those tools that its users seem to swear by as an extremely useful service, and the company has helped its adoption by being on pretty much every platform under the sun. Seriously, they even have an app for the BlackBerry Playbook! No one has an app on the BlackBerry Playbook!
So, why use StringNote and not the official Evernote app? Well, because StringNote can send a quick note by double-tapping the power/lock key to Evernote. It grabs the user’s location, adds the time and date, and then sends it to Evernote. The app can also be set up to snap a quick picture and send that to Evernote, or to record audio for 15 seconds. It serves as a convenient way for users who want to use Evernote as a proper note-taking service to have lightning-quick access. It’s not a replacement to the official Evernote app, merely a useful complement to it. The app is available for free from Google Play, and while the description says the app doesn’t work with 3.0+ devices, it worked on an Ice Cream Sandwich device that I tested, so the description appears to just be out of date.
