Evernote announces PDF search capability

Regular readers here know that I am a big fan of the Evernote application that I use on my PC, Mac, and mobile phones. Evernote just announced an amazing new feature for premium subscribers (I have been a premium subscriber since day 1) that I am sure will be great news for many of you. Evernote now supports PDF Search capabilities so the PDF documents you upload to your account go through their search recognition technology engine servers and are fully searchable within minutes.

Regular readers here know that I am a big fan of the Evernote application that I use on my PC, Mac, and mobile phones. Evernote just announced an amazing new feature for premium subscribers (I have been a premium subscriber since day 1) that I am sure will be great news for many of you. Evernote now supports PDF Search capabilities so the PDF documents you upload to your account go through their search recognition technology engine servers and are fully searchable within minutes. Evernote will begin processing all of your existing non-searchable PDF documents within the next week so they will be searchable soon while new documents will be searchable right away.

Searching PDFs with the Adobe software is sometimes a useless endeavor since some PDF documents are not searchable. With Evernote and the desktop client you can run a PDF document through your premium account and then right click (on the desktop version) to export this searchable PDF. Even better, you can search right within Evernote to find the word(s) you are looking for in any document you have in your account.

Remember, this new searchable PDF support is a premium account holder benefit so check out their subscription model and seriously consider this option. I think it is well worth the $45/year and am happy to pay every year for my premium account.
