Let me start by saying that I've been a happy and consistent user of Evernote for as long as it's been around. In fact, the first entry that I made in Evernote dates from late May, 2008, and contains notes for a review of the application, which was just about to go into open beta.
I honestly don't remember what I wrote about it at the time; however, I can tell you that since then, Evernote has been my go-to application for almost any kind of text record I needed. I've used it for taking notes at press events, tracking websites that I found useful, storing the copious information I needed one year when I was dealing with a couple of real estate transactions, keeping copies of PowerPoint presentations, storing copies of receipts and travel expenses, working on short stories -- and many, many other things. At the moment, I have 5,647 notes in Evernote -- and I understand that there are other users out there who have over twice as many.
