I don’t know why everyone is so bent on finding the next evernote replacement..? Evernote is such a great product, and it’s free for most users – why not just use it and say thank you?
I used OneNote for a few years, but the search functionality was awful. (I still miss some of ON’s features, though).
I have been migrating from MS Office to Google Docs over the last few years, and now that I’m doing more and more work on portable devices I’m glad that I did.
But Evernote is the backbone of everything I do. There’s room for improvement, yes. But it’s light weight, fast, easy, powerful, syncs without issue… Good luck hacking and building work-arounds trying to make something else do what this already does..
