Evernote is a cross-platform, note-taking application that can be installed on your BlackBerry device. The app is compatible with all BlackBerry models; it can be downloaded from the BlackBerry World app store, and you can begin using it in a matter of moments. Just log in to your Evernote account or register a new one once the app is on your phone, and your notes will immediately sync to your device. If you are using the BlackBerry Z10, it is even easier as Evernote is integrated into the Z10 operating system.

BlackBerry Z10

Tap "Accounts" and select "Add Account."

Select "Evernote" and tap "Next."

Enter your Evernote username and password. Tap "Next."

Select "Sync to Remember" and configure other sync settings, then tap "Done."

Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to return to the home screen, then tap the "Remember" icon. Your Evernote notes, categorized by notebook, will be displayed within Remember.

Tap "New Entry" to create a new note within existing notebooks or tap "New Folder" if you want to create a new notebook in Evernote. Be sure to select "Sync to Evernote" when creating a new folder to ensure that your data is synced between your BlackBerry and Evernote.
