One area where Evernote wins hands down every single time and that is with its integration with other apps things like the Evernote Web Clipper in Safari or Chrome it’s just unbeatable.
Because you can just send stuff straight to Evernote without even thinking about it and it works every single time ever notes iOS application and I know it’s Android application is just fantastic at capturing notes.
And of course it’s integration with drafts and particularly drafts five which is just an amazing capture tool is unbeatable I do look at other notes and seeing how it integrates with these applications and nothing comes close to Evernote and I know that.
There’s been lots of news recently about Evernote in the news and that it’s dying and that it’s going to disappear personally I don’t think so Evernote is just going to get better and better and better I’m sure the guys over Evernote headquarters are folk on making as the best app possible does it need a user interface update yes I think so it’s looking a bit.
