I have been struggling with finding a notes app. I have been a long time Evernote user since I began using an iPhone. I have used it for note taking and as a collection bucket for all sorts of files. Through the years the app became bloated and slow. There were features introduced that I did not use like Work Chat. These new features made it more difficult to access features I did use. Evernote also began charging to use some of the more advanced features. I understand that Evernote needs to find a way to make money. I am glad to support them. But was not sure about the direction of this app.
Enter Apple Notes. Apple has made some great advancements. It is not as advanced as Evernote. But it is also free. I have been using this app for the last few months in an attempt to break away from Evernote. But I have found that Apple Notes still leaves me wanting. For example, there are no tags. I also enjoy the ability to email notes to Evernote and clip web pages. These features are not available in Apple Notes.
Then there is Microsoft One Note. I had heard some positive reviews. I really tried to make it work, but I did not find many of the advanced features to be intuitive. Maybe the problem was that I was too accustomed to Evernote.
I find myself stuck at the moment between Apple Notes and Evernote. Maybe there is another alternative out there? It's the Great Notes Dilemma of 2017!
