jay 0 Posted March 21, 2008 Share Posted March 21, 2008 Folks,Having spent nearly a year and a half to research the best time management tools, I am very concerned about the following posting:From my discussion with Phil (CEO) a couple of weeks ago, and from everything I've seen here, I am confident in saying that EN is going in a new direction, primarily that of a data collection application. I'll bet that old-fashioned categories, now tags, are gone, as are templates and note links. I've seen no indication so far of any plan to restore these high-end features. I'd like to hear differently from EN. Phil is an absolute technology genius and i can't imagine that they would kill the robust and high-end features in Evernote 2.2 just to make a web 2.0 compliant collection tool -- from what I can tell it would make the most sense to keep them both and integrate them into not just a web collection mechanism but also an full featured robust note taking and journal tool for work with tablet pcs and notetaking products like cyberpad.Right now the preview release of the Evernote 3.0 seems to have some terrific features. I hope it can now also soon encompass the 2.2 features that make that such a terrific program. I would personally consider fully switching from OneNote for all my collection needs if they can pull this off. I also really love the Evernote Mobile preview release which is incredible for viewing your evernote captures on your windows mobile pocket pc. But the new 3.0 compliant tool is missing some of these terrific advanced functionalities -- eventually they are supposed to merge. And my hope is they do this. However the jury has been out from the evernote team on all the features lost from 2.2 to 3.0. Link to comment
