Google Drive is recommended because it provides seamless Gmail integration, unlike other options for virtual storage. It literally works well with powerful extensions of Google Chrome. It has some of the amazing extensions to save previews, links, and images to your Drive.
As the name suggests, Evernote is just a note-taking app. It is loaded with some of the impressive tracking and task management features. It also enables you to create checklists. This app can definitely take care of plenty of things.
We recommend it because it works on all devices seamlessly. No matter where you created note last time, your notes will be accessible from all devices once it is connected to the web. You can also tag your notes to organize them.
It’s really tempting to use some common words as passwords like 123456. Sadly, it costs very dearly when it is hacked. In this way, some people bear the infamous security breach. Don’t worry.
