Inspiration can strike anywhere: while waiting at an airport gate, hailing a cab, or grabbing a coffee. If you aren’t Miranda Priestley from “The Devil Wears Prada” with eager minions following you around, you’re likely scrambling for a notebook or napkin. When your next big idea comes along, instead of reaching for a pen, reach for Evernote.
Evernote makes it easy to capture important details at a moment’s notice by storing notes, files, audio, and web clips, and making them available on every device you use. And unlike an eager minion, Evernote is free (for iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone).

Even the most seasoned business traveler can benefit from a little help. While apps are a long way from replacing humans, they demand much lower salaries. They only need a moment to download, and the time they can save is priceless.
