How to Install Evernote for Mobile Devices

By David E. Y. Sarna

It’s worthwhile to install Evernote on all your devices. The process takes only a few minutes, and there’s no cost. Downloading Evernote on all your devices is also the best way to make sure that you have access from anywhere you roam at any time.

Finally, it means that no matter where you are, so long as you have your mobile device, even if you don’t have Internet access, you can still create and view your notes.

Every mobile device that Evernote supports has a web browser. The easiest way to install Evernote on a mobile device is to click the link in the welcome e-mail you received after signup, shown here.

The download section on the Evernote website.

You can also fire up the app store for your device, such as Apple’s App Store, Google Play, BlackBerry World, or Windows Marketplace.
