A couple of weeks back, popular note-taking application Evernote won the TechCrunch’s Crunchies as best mobile startup for 2008.
Last week, in a lavish ceremony at San Francisco’s Herbst Theater, Evernote won the Crunchie for Best Mobile Startup of 2008. All of us here want to thank you, the users, for sticking with us and for voting. This is the gorilla-shaped cherry atop an incredible year.
I think Evernote deserves the award. For that matter I think Evernote is great, as it marries mobility with easy anywhere access of one’s notes, clips and data. I use Evernote myself, and I’m able to jot down important stuff without worrying about the snippets of information forever disappearing into oblivion, as what mostly happens when I use post-its or even notebook paper.
What’s great about Evernote is that it integrates with mobile phones as well. It’s not yet perfect, but on my Windows-powered smartphone, I can jot down notes, and these are automatically synchronized with my Evernote account. Sweet, isn’t it?
One thing lacking in Evernote that would make it an even better application is collaboration. You have this with Google Docs. You have this on wikis. How about being able to share notes and let other people work on your notes, too? That would make Evernote an even more interesting social media platform.
