Cameron from Hidden Clothing sent over this rad email about how he’s use the iPhone app, Evernote, to build an amazing spot database. Check out a full rundown with photos and screenshots after the jump!
I just wanted to share this because I’m super psyched on it. You may already know about Evernote and it may be old news but I just discovered it, and since I can’t ride for a while because of a broken foot, I’m forced to find new things to keep myself busy and somewhat productive.
I’ve begun using Evernote as a database for all of my riding spots. What makes it awesome is that you can add new stuff from your iPhone or the computer and everything syncs up wirelessly. I love it.
I add every spot as an individual note, add a photo, and tag it with lots of info. I just add whether or not it’s skateable so I can just search the spots that are when I’m with friends who skate. I tag it with ledges or rails so if I’m in the mood to ride a certain thing in a certain city.
Also, you can share all of your notes with other Evernote users. So if you have friends from a different state or something, you can send them all of your spots and share like that.
I also add a Google Maps link to each note so I can get immediate, exact directions to the spot.
