Great app - hands down one of the best note-takers out there
I've worked with many different options for note-taking and idea saving. Evernote is still my favorite. With a simple hierarchy that's easy to understand (Notebooks then Notes) it's powerful and allows for extra hierarchy (Parent/child notebooks). It offers everything you need to search (e.g., tagging) as well as providing a clean rich-text interface for notes. I've used OneNote most extensively as a competitor and was quite happy with it for a long time, but the interface is a little clunkier and I found the sharing to be a few additional steps. I went back to Evernote when I started my latest position (no longer at a Microsoft house).
+ Simple, clean note-taking interface + Search-ability and tagging + Device support and usability on mobile + Storage
- Finite hierarchy - I often find I'm one level short of what I want
Hierarchy and setup was easier on Evernote. The mobile experience was much better as well
Was looking for a cleaner interface with more search ability.
Note-taking and ideation
Try OneNote as well, everyone's different. If you're not a heavy Microsoft user (for work) then Evernote will be an easy choice. If you are you'll have to weigh the pros of staying in the Microsoft environment.
