While you can mark most documents for free the free version only allows you to mark PDFs for one month’s trial before you have to upgrade to the premium version.

For students Evernote presents Peek, a practical study tool which takes notes that are made in Evernote and converts them into study materials. For example if you are learning about a specific subject, Peek will display a question when the smart cover of your iPad is lifted just a bit. You can then think of the answer to the trivia and lift the smart cover some more to reveal if you are correct. Like so many other Evernote apps, it is taking what used to be done using pieces of paper and pens and bringing it into an interactive world on your iPad and computer.
