Why I'm Dumping Evernote for OneNote
By: Sascha Segan, PC Magazine
I've been an Evernote user since 2009. My life is in there. But after the company's pricing changes made clear that it's ditching its core consumer user base, it's time for a move. Hello, Microsoft OneNote.
Evernote became a huge success as a cloud-based note-taking tool with fast indexing, tagging, and search. Under the pressure of Silicon Valley expectations, it then spent years loading itself down with extra features: first consumer-friendly ideas like food blogging and flash cards, and then more business-oriented apps like work chat, collaboration, slideshows, and version control. It's now a giant Swiss Army Knife of workflow, doing a ton of non-note-taking things not quite as well as its more focused competitors do.
