OCR is great. Plus with the web clipper, you can import entire articles into Evernote.
Couple that with the Cmd+J shortcut and at some point you realize you've built your own personal Intranet.
Exactly and this combination of features is difficult to replicate. The key challenges that I encounter when I consider viable Evernote alternatives (I've been a relatively satisfied Evernote user for about 8 or 9 years but I am a little concerned about having so much data in there) are usually the following:
The closest I've seen to a possible replacement would be something like Google Drive and Dropbox, albeit paid versions.
I think if you use it that much, evernote is great and I find it had to imagine any tool competing with it.
I used it for 6 months and all I did was write, that was all, write and clip pages. As a writing tool I found evernote's editor lacked a lot.
Hence, those were the only features I wanted to replicate. Auto generation of notes, tagging, the ability to use my favorite editor and for all my notes to be backed-up.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
