  1. I used Evernote for 2 years premium version. After 2 years I can't hold it anymore, it was easy to take notes but Evernote was slow. If I suddenly have an idea or perhaps saw something that worth to take note with, I need to wait for the app to load for at least 3 seconds before I enter the main screen. Then a few clicks away to start writing my notes. And there were no organization with Evernote. If you have 5-6 notes only, then it's ok, but if you have hundreds notes, it became a problem. It is also very hard to share notes with someone else without asking them to install evernote first.

    Google keep…very quick compare to Evernote, but the same problem. Not organize. Google keep basically just like a post it note on a big wall and in the end you will get lost with your own notes.

  2. You don't think the fact that you have to pay to use offline features for evernote is a deal breaker?? Because it sounds like a deal breaker to me.

  3. notability not for android just sucks got a new android phone got Evernote been using it for a year just to find out now I have to pay rent to use it offline and I need my notes for work

  4. Jotblue has some great features for android. I just started using it but it has some features I believe are unique unless I just haven't made the most of the other note taking programs reviewed. Have you tried jot blue?

  5. I came across Evernote when I bought a pen that recorded the notes I wrote down. It synced to Evernote and I haven't stopped using it since. Tried OneNote but Evernote always felt better for me plus it worked with my pen.

  6. I like wiznote better then evernote it let you make folders inside folder and that make all your stuff organized in a better way .

  7. My Apologies to APPLE , concerning personel notes on apple 6 going to email , after looking on line at a few peoples confused ways to fix this problem that didn't work !! you have to go into setting and go to ( mail contacts , calenders ) right at the top you will see accounts and right under that you will see your email provider , mine is GMAIL  , under that it says mail , calenders, tap on this and its shows a screen saying ( mail / contacts / calenders/ notes } tap NOTES and turn it to OFF  , you notes on your iphone 6 will now stay were there meant to stay , in your personel Notes and not go into your email were when you delete your Old email your notes get Deleted TOO !!!!!! hope this is helping someone with the same problem , Why they would make a feature to send notes to your email that can get deleted WHO KNOWS LOL 🙂

  8. Once Again Apple seem to want things there way !!! after trying to find  a answere to why my notes on my iphone 6 go to a email address and Apple don't seem to want to give a answere to that , I tried to send my comments to Apple but they say my email address is invalid lol its a wonder they don't say all notes are to be stored on I tunes !!! LOTS of other good Smart phones out there that DO what YOU want not what to maker wants OK !!!

  9. If you don't like the expense of Evernote Premium, there is now a 2nd tier that is half the price for Evernote.  It lacks a few Premium features, but it does include offline access.   I have been using Evernote Premium and like it.  My only complaint is that the formatting doesn't transfer to Microsoft Word or any other program.   If you try to cut and paste into another program.. good luck.
    I have transferred to the middle tier Evernote, but am seeking to learn more about OneNote….or even google docs.

  10. I'm not familiar with Evernote, but Onenote has some great features for students taking lecture notes for class.  You can make a video or audio recording of the lecture, and while that's happening the notes you type or draw into OneNote using a stylus will be time tagged with the recording.  When you play back the lecture, OneNote will highlight the specific notes you were taking at the time.  You can also highlight your notes and then play back the lecture recording from that time.  Very slick.  Also, you can do keyword search on the audio of the recording.

  11. After using evernote on my windows pc and  iPhone  I  cant understand why everyone on the internet is praising this so much . I find evernote complicated and takes time to do what I need  to do . if for example I need to make an audio note takes 3-4 for clicks . and the  layout they use is bad too . Taking notes needs to be easy and  quick . I don't like onenote  or  google keep much either to be honest . they  all look similar, sterile and plain.  

  12. He Forgot about Google Docs, sheets, presentations…..They are great for taking notes and productivity and are all stored and saved in your Drive.

  13. What's the name of the song playing in background? An answer will be highly appreciated. And no, it's Darude – Sandstorm. That song was and still is pathetic.

  14. The main criteria should be:
    1) If it works on Android/iOS.
    2) It works on web.
    That's why, Google Keep & Evernote suits me. Some huge notes from Simplenote just got deleted. But thanks to Type Machine. I was saved.
