Evernote Service Integration: Browser, Document Viewer, and Screen Apps
Evernote is an award-winning service for mobile devices, PCs and the Web that allows individuals to capture notes, photos, clip web pages, track tasks and to-dos and much more. Content captured in Evernote is instantly synchronized across platforms, making it accessible and searchable from any mobile device or computer. Evernote currently has nearly 7 million users in the US and other markets throughout the world.

The integration of Evernote with NetFront Life version 2.0 apps adds a compelling new level of functionality and utility. For instance, documents accessed or viewed with NetFront Life Documents v2.0 or web page clippings created with NetFront Life Browser v2.0 can be directly saved out to a user’s personal Evernote account quickly and seamlessly. NetFront Life Screen includes the Evernote app icon as a pre-installed icon on its Ring List, enabling quick, one-click previews of Evernote content via Screen’s Quickview function, with actual data accessible via one additional click.
