I used to use Evernote, before I switched to Microsoft OneNote. Evernote had a mass exodus of its top executives not long ago, and the whole reason I started using it was because I saw the former CEO, Phil Libin, give a talk at a conference and I loved his philosophy…it was a really cool app though.
It had a lot of tools for taking notes in different formats, including a “web clipper” you could use to save parts of web pages in your notes. More importantly, you had full ownership over your content, and there was very little that Evernote did with your notes without your consent.
Lately though, between the mass exodus and the lack of improvements to the app, I figured the app was dying and I should switch to something more reliable and active. I’m not the biggest fan of OneNote, but it does what I need, and I do like the way I can organize story ideas.
