How to Install Evernote on Ubuntu 20.04

Evernote is the world’s most popular note-taking and personal organization service. It is widely used by people who need their notes to be tidy and available from anywhere thanks to the cloud.

One of the main features of Evernote is the ability to integrate with other APPs such as Gmail, Drive, or Outlook. This allows users to share information from these applications and increase productivity.

Also, Evernote integrates a document scanner that will make you not miss details of what you want. Of course, all this adds to the basic functions of an application of this nature such as taking, saving, and backing up notes that can include videos, photos, or other documents.

On the other hand, Evernote is free and you get the basic functions but there is also the possibility to be premium and unlock all the possibilities.
