Docpalmer777 5 Posted June 3, 2014 Share Posted June 3, 2014 While I have used both for some time now there are a few reasons I couldn't fully commit to Evernote. This mostly centered around the fact that function seemed to trump beauty and flow in the Evernote experience. Don't get me wrong Evernote is a great app but the interface is most definitely pedestrian and uninspired...boring. Now that Evernote has basically swallowed up most of us Springpad users, why not take the opportunity to absorb why we liked Springpad in the first place? There is a central and very important aspect of our interactions in our environments every day...and that is the aspect of Beauty. Color, texture, movement, light, dark, shape, depth etc all play into beauty. And while beauty can be subjective, there are common aspects and truth in the subjectivity. Why not add the flexible usage of color to Evernote, beyond the mind numbing and uninspiring GREEN and BROWN and shades of grey interface? I think that the simple addition of user definable colorization of notebooks and or the UI will make for a more satisfying experience. Springpad had something Evernote has seemed to have overlooked or just outright ignored; and that is a design/beauty aspect to the app. Call it a Feng Shui. I for one would love to see some integration of what made SpringPad enjoyable to use into our Evernote experience. Just a thought! Link to comment
