In addition, it helps you manage all the information that you receive and that is generated, and you will be able to classify images, audios, videos, captures, documents ... in the same place.

For example, imagine that you have to document yourself for a job. Instead of having to copy all the links to pages where there is information, you could have Evernote do it for you, in addition to taking screenshots.
