After 13 years with Evernote, I'm done
Every year, I keep hoping they will fix sync so my notes sync without conflicts. This is the final straw... even when editing on ONE computer, it generates duplicate notes.
This is off my usual vaccine topic, but I’m sure there are lots of my readers who share my frustrations with Evernote.
The sync errors that have lasted 13 years and never been fixed are part of it. And when your notes have conflicts, they do NOTHING to help you resolve the conflicts.
Whenever I use the mobile app, I have to force quit the app and restart it to get it to sync. This should never be needed.
There was a time when Evernote was using a huge amount of background CPU doing nothing and when I complained the “experts” on the Community told me I don’t understand how modern software works. When you try to export your notebooks, you have to do it ONE AT A TIME. Are you kidding me?!?!
I would have left Evernote sooner if I had a way to export my files.
Recently I got so frustrated with yet another, “you have two notes with the same name” problem that I said I was done. I would find a better way and I would find a way to export my files intact.
I spent days on this and I found a solution that:
can be used off-line and on-line
is very flexible/powerful
has WYSIWYG editing
syncs notes on platforms as you type (like Google docs)
never gives you conflict errors
is very cheap
is highly rated by experts
Is easy to use
Is a decision that I will never regret
It’s not Evernote and it’s not Notion (which doesn’t really work off-line which was the deal killer for me). It’s a product I’ve never heard of in my life until just a few days ago when I started researching all the alternatives.
As a special gift to my paying subscribers, I will explain what I switched to and how I was able to migrate all my Evernote notes without loss of any information. If you aren’t already a paying subscriber, you can subscribe for $5/mo or $50/yr and cancel at any time.
