Evernote is an application and online service that allows users to store files, ideas and tasks in one centralised location. Dropbox is an online service that allows users to store and synchronise files between multiple computers. The two applications perform some of the same functions, and many users prefer to keep their files in both programs synchronised. You can do this by creating a new Dropbox folder and then importing the folder into Evernote.
