psionmark 73 Posted March 4, 2013 Share Posted March 4, 2013 Well, this is kinda what's happened. Mostly due to the near impossibility of using Evernote on my iPad - which a while back became a necessity for a number of reasons - I started using Evernote less and less. I started using NVAlt (and Notesy on iOS) with plain text notes (synced through Dropbox) for actual note taking, as trying to do so on EN on the iPad (at the time, might be different with the newest version) was basically asking to have your data lost due to the instability of the app. And guess what? I really didn't miss Evernote at all. I shall most likely keep my account, but mainly because I have 3,000 + (I deleted about 7,000 that I really didn't need) notes that, truth be told, I can't be arsed to move, although I may well look at CloudHQ to dump the whole lot into Dropbox one day. Or maybe into Google where I can now search within docs, which was always the "one big thing" that held me to Evernote. (And at least Google has 2 Factor Authentication...). My main use of EN at the moment is just as a database of existing PDF's that I may need to reference at some point in the future (but have barely needed to so far during this "experiment"). I could achieve pretty much the same functionality by just dumping the whole lot into my file system. And may well do so. I've certainly been doing more deleting of stuff from EN, rather than adding of stuff to EN. So, Evernote, I know I'm only small fry in the big scheme of things, but please do be aware that unstable, unreliable apps can drive paying customers away. Even ones - like me - who previously (but not now) waxed lyrical about EN and encouraged many others to join. I've got a Pro account for the next 2 years (mostly through discounted offerings), so I'll likely stick around, but more out of curiosity than anything else. Mark P.S. I'm not trying to stir things up. I actually just kinda realised this over the past few days. I saw the threads here relating to the security breach and it took me a number of days to even bother to change my EN password, which made me realise just how little I use it now). Link to comment
