Have you discovered widgets on your iPhone yet?
The Yahoo Weather and Evernote widgets are amazing – and accessible from the lock screen if you give them permission.
These widgets are installed when you install the app on your iThings. To set them up the way you want them, swipe down from the top of the screen to view the Notification Center then scroll down to the bottom of your notifications and tap the Edit button. Here you can add/remove widgets and rearrange the display order. I’m sure you’ll want the Evernote widget at or near the top.
