Everpad... How to install your Notes from Evernote in Ubuntu ( UPDATED ON: May 18, 2015 )


Everpad it's a Evernote unofficial client for Linux.
With this app you have a quick access to all your notes in Evernote account.

...::: Updated on: May 18, 2015 :::...


As we post on the last overview of this great application, Everpad brought to the Linux community an easy, and quick access to your notes from Evernote (and still don't have an application or intend to develop an application for Linux).

If you are expecting a interface kinda like the Evernote, you going to be disappointed. Everpad interface is minimal, and lightweight but easy to work it, that allows you create, edit a manage your notes.


Although this application can be installed on several distributions and desktop environments, has a special flavor to Ubuntu more precisely on the Unity desktop environment.

So, what has special about ?

First of all, integration with Unity lens
You can easily search on the dashboard, for your notes ( even if your note is from a year ago). It's very useful, and practical when we have a large volume of notes saved in our account.
