“[Evernote] create notes, take snapshots so like of lecture materials, like the slides and anything that is written down on the blackboard [Whiteboard], also you can tag in your notes and tag them together and share your notes”

My students report using the tool for capturing notes whether typed, image or recording, as shown below:
Personally I use Evernote to back up my Penultimate notebooks as Evernote owns Penultimate. However the app is very popular with my students. The mobile app enables the user to type, capture audio recordings, location of note and images from camera or upload image from photo library. Also add tags enabling the users to collate notes with the same tag together. Notes can be made on of course on other mobile apps and uploaded to Evernote, for example Explain Everything and Penultimate both have the functionality to upload to Evernote cloud, enabling the notes to be backuped, stored and managed. Like Google Docs the files can be shared with other Evernote account holders.
