Evernote Tips

Lately I’ve been rethinking my data collection system. I think a better solution for me involves more effective use of Evernote. The Clever with Words blog has some great Evernote tips.

    Hey, David:

    I played with Evernote for about six months. I mostly liked it, but do not like the fact that it keeps notes in a proprietary (gibberish) database (as does DevonThink). Furthermore, I’m not sure how secure it is, and ultimately didn’t trust it with my sensitive information.

    I’m currently using EagleFiler. The program maintains a standard Finder file structure so you can easily find and access all of your information without the program. However, the information resides on your hard drive, so you don’t have internet access to it. Also, it doesn’t have the text recognition capabilities of Evernote.

    Apparently, Journier is very similar. However, it appears to me that it hasn’t been updated since July or so of last year, and the developer’s blog hasn’t had a post since that time.
