(Archived) An Evernote killer with Due Dates


Recommended Posts

  • Level 5

Take a look at Daniel Gold's interview with the CEO of NoteSuite.

The program is being billed as an Evernote killer and it has Due Dates.

And it allows sub-tasks for sub-tasks for tasks.

In the To-dos tab, you can create lists, assign people to the task (with or without an e-mail address), assign a context (tag), and put a due date on it, which can then be added to your calendar of choice.

I can foresee Evernote becoming your source for reference material and NoteSuite handling Tasks, Appointments, Schedules and Delegation.

Thanks JB. I'd like to give it a try, but it is 4.99  to even look at it. I'll think about it. I am always interested in seeing approaches to note-taking.  From the reviews, it looks to me like an interesting app with plenty of bugs. In particular, the lack of support (apparently) for Chinese (or other non-English character sets I guess) makes it a non-starter to me. I won't know until I try it, but I am not going to spend $5 to do it...

 

My armchair opinion (without having tried it)? It's entering into a space already populated by strong, established, and much less buggy (if the NoteSuite reviews are to be believed) competition like VoodooPad. Weirdly, NoteSuite is marketing itself as a company without servers holding your data, which they say means your data is yours, but this doesn't seem to distinguish it from Evernote in a good way. The data is still yours with Evernote! However, you get the added benefit of having their servers do things for you, like backup your data, do OCR, etc. In the end, you don't gain anything at all by cutting the servers out of the equation. Now, if they offered something like VoodooPad, and allowed you to sync wirelessly or transfer notes via iTunes, then you would be able to avoid relying on an Internet connection and all of the privacy/security/access issues that involves. This might be valuable for the security paranoid (like me). But, they don't do that (as far as I can tell).

 

Most importantly, perhaps, neither VoodooPad nor NoteSuite will sync with your Android phone. If you work across platforms (or want to share notes with someone who does), I think Evernote is still going to be the go-to app. It looks interesting, but seems unlikely to catch on without even offering a trial version. Maybe someone who is really hard core about due dates will appreciate the additional functionality it offers. I wonder how it stacks up to Evernote + third-party task manager integrations.

I am single-platform Evernote $5 / month user.

My Evernote database (titles only) is already too big for my Android phone.

And I never touch the Evernote web version.

So I don't have much to lose by giving it a try.

Wow!  Thanks for sharing JB!

 

I just finished reading the above article, and IF the app is as good as it sounds, it will be dynamite!

 

The key quote to me is "It’s a lot easier to get things done when everything is in one organized place".

 

Those of you, like me :-), that have been around for a while realize the real value of function integration.  ALL of the functions/features in Evernote and NoteSuite have been around for a long time as individual apps.  Having a tight integration is what really makes it work.

 

Evernote keeps saying they don't care about the competition.  Well, I guess you can say that when there is none.  :-)

But, as most of us recognize, competition is GOOD for everybody, including the app makers.

 

NoteSuite is limited right now in terms of the number of devices/platforms it supports:  Mac and iPad.

But they have already announced an iPhone edition, with the intent to add others over time.

 

So, being mostly an Apple product person these days, I'm going to dive into the NoteSuite pool and check it out!

Sounds interesting. However, until it's available on all of the devices I use, it's appeal to me is limited. Also, I've no use for the ToDo functions or sub folders. Of course, I've no use for them in Evernote, either.  ;)

 

Definitely worth keeping an eye on.
