In the last few months I have been introduced to several pieces of software that are purported great for use in genealogical and family history research, recording, and sharing. What a great idea! Sadly, at least one piece of the software may be beyond my capabilities.
Those new-to-me software packages are Evernote, Camscanner, and Flipboard.
Evernote is an application that I acquired more than a year ago and only used briefly at the time I downloaded and set it up. I liked the idea but did not do much. Recently I have found, and begun using, the Evernote Web Clipper. It is fantastic! Just a perfect help for all things online. I love it.
Camscanner is a little app which I use with the iPad Mini that Dear One gave me when he was moving on to something else. I do like this app. I have been mostly successful with it, taking photos of documents and doing a bit of cropping, but nothing fancy. I believe there is more to the app for me to learn, and I probably will.
Flipboard is a much more recent find, and so far, totally escapes me. I have one magazine set up but cannot see how to set up another one on a different subject. I also do not see how to add content to the hopefully-new-magazine. Watching tutorials on YouTube so far I have not yet mined the information that I need.
I do hate to have technology get the better of me. I am not planning to be defeated by it, so will spend more time. I think it can be a useful tool in gathering online data on a particular subject in one place for easy access. At least, that is what I understand I should be able to do, but....not so far!
