The Beginner's Guide to Using Evernote on the iPad

Well, I've done it. I went and published a book. You can read all about the process here if you are interested in how I used iAuthor to make this happen.

I've been using Evernote for a while and I usually hear that most people have no idea how to use it on their iPad or why they should use it. I thought I would create a little book that walks people through using Evernote on their iPad.

I used Evernote to map out my ideas and Skitch to take screenshots of Evernote and annotate them for the book. Once I had everything in place, I went to iAuthor and pieced everything together.

I still have plenty to learn on using iAuthor, but I feel I created a simple to use guide for people interested in using Evernote on their iPad.

The book is currently priced at $2.99. The profits that Apple does not take will go toward future nerdy endeavors, @BabyProvenzano and #EduBros ISTE Event Planning.

Thanks for all of the support that you have given me over the years. I would not have thought I was capable of doing this if it were not for all of the kind words from my PLN.

I really hope you enjoy the book and please share any ideas, suggestions or mistakes I made through email.

Thank again!

You can find the book in the iBookstore or follow this link!


  1. Congratulations! Bought and downloaded. Can't wait to learn.

  2. Great! I am an Evernote convert after reading your posts. Hoping to solve some iPad chalenges with it!

  3. I was curious so I bought it; screenshots don't show up though, just blank space...

  4. Hi. I just purchased your book for the $1.99. At first, I was resistant, but when I read your rational and saw what Apple charged you, I relented. The fact that my book will update as you add to it was a selling point. I love Evernote, and previous to happening on your post, my husband and I hac been experimenting with sharing notes as well as using the Evernote emai address to send a note directly into Evernote. I would love to see an update in your book on using Skitch. I have a photo in one of my notes that got there by my using Skitch, but I have no recollection of how I did it.:)

  5. The images will show when you hold the iPad horizontally. It took me a while to figure it out but it works. Thanks for the book.

  6. Thanks for the tip about rotating the iPad to show the images! It works indeed...

  7. Just purchased, and am proud I know most of it, but will read about the trunk next! Great job, and thank you! Next step... Updating how it works with KustomNote? :-)

  8. Hi
