  • After seeing the confirmation flash (from step 2 Action 3) back out to the homescreen
  • Tap the homescreen shortcut again

  • Try it again with different notes

Use Cases

Now you have a setter and getter task for any daily Evernote Note.  Apply it to any situation. Set and get your daily journal, expenses, to-do list, shopping list, or general notes; all quickly and easily. I personally use it for my daily workout log every time I work out.
