EverNote is a software application that allows users to capture information of various types, including text notes, mobile phone snapshots, printed and handwritten text within images, web clips, and digital ink. All data added to EverNote are run through a series of recognizers that make any text within the various note formats searchable. The application uses a continuous "roll of paper" metaphor for its user interface. Additionally, users may create folders, categories, and notebooks.
For capturing content beyond direct text and digital ink input, EverNote uses system of Clippers (Web, Mail, and Universal Clippers) and supports Drag-and-drop, Cut, copy, and paste and import/auto-import capabilities.
