I gave myself a new mobile phone for Christmas.  My first Smartphone is a Samsung Galaxy S III.  See how big it is compared to my old phone!

So I have spent the last month discovering new ways to do the things I used to do with my old texting phone, and finding apps to do things I could never do on my old phone.

I can scan QR codes!  I don't know why I want to, but I'm scanning crazy.  And my phone can tell me the name of the song playing on the radio, when I can't.

My latest discovery was to replace the simple "Notes" I had on my old phone.  I thought there ought to be a simple function already on the Galaxy.  When I couldn't find it, I went searching for an app.  Yes, there's an app for that.  Probably a few dozen apps for that.  But I chose Evernote, since it's free and has a lot of five star reviews.

I powered it up and at first it seemed like overkill, then I found I could synch my notes from my phone with my desktop.  Had to install Evernote there too. What's really annoying is the little pop-up from the system tray telling me it's synching...every ten minutes.  I don't have that much stuff in notes!!  But I could if I wanted to...add photos, videos, docs, pdfs. And if there is stuff I want to keep track of on my desktop, but don't need on my phone, I can tell it not to synch that stuff.

I bet there are hundreds of you out there saying, "I knew that!"  OK, tell me how you use your Evernote.
