Evernote Web Clipper
Free; 500MB storage and priority OCR for $45/year
If you aren’t using Evernote -- or one of its competitors -- to clip and save Web pages, files, photos, handwritten notes, and on and on, you’re behind the times. Think of Evernote as an electronic shoebox where you can cram just about anything. (Earlier this week, Evernote announced enterprise-friendlier Evernote Business that works with the same Chrome add-in.) Once the information is in the shoebox, it’s easy to sort and slice and dice it. And you can add, manage, or retrieve information from your PC, smartphone, tablet, or iOS device very quickly. Take a photo of a handwritten page using your phone’s camera, and it’s rendered as searchable text.
