"Evernote power users rejoice: the folks at BitQwik have made a search program that’ll bring your abilities to seek out the notes you want more powerful than ever. The great thing about this application is its ability to work with natural language – that meaning you can type in basically anything and it’ll know what you’re saying." - SlashGear Review of BitQwik.
UPDATE: BitQwik is officially in the Evernote Trunk, Productivity section.

Why don’t more people use Evernote’s powerful search operators?
Because you have to memorize the names and the syntax of the special search operators and that is hard. For example, suppose you want to search for all your notes that do not have the words “school” or “breakfast” in the title, that you created in March of 2012, and were made with Evernote Hello. You would have to enter the following into the Evernote search box to find them:
With BitQwik you simply type:
Show me notes that do not have school or breakfast in the title that I created in March and were made with Evernote Hello
Or any almost other sentence that means the exact same thing! There’s no special commands or syntax, just plain English sentences that state what you want.
If you have any comments or questions, please post a reply to this thread and I'll answer them. Remember, BitQwik is brand new software so expect plenty of bugs and for it to misinterpret what you are trying to say fairly often. But in a few weeks that will all change and it will be the smooth, fun experience it is destined to be.
