Comment:

Evernote is a very helpful app to capture notes, thoughts, ideas, images, and audio. I use it regularly as my "digital Moleskine" notebook for just about everything. One thing I've found it helpful for is the ability to take a picture of a page in a paper book I want to remember. Once the app syncs with Evernote's servers it processes the image with OCR technology. Then on a desktop app (not in iOS) you can search for a word in the image of the page. I find this helpful when reading library books. The premium account adds additional features for quicker processing and ability to copy the text.

Technical Remarks:

You are able to use Evernote online, Windows app, OS X app, iOS app, or Android app. Evernote requires 10.6.6 (Snow Leopard) on OS X and that might be a concern for some.
