mgsxx 16 Posted October 18, 2014 Share Posted October 18, 2014 I noticed that Evernote upped up monthly limit for premium users from 1Gb to 4Gb. I laughed out loud.It's like "hey, here's our nice new shiny shovel, and now you can dig strait to the Earth core!" "Remember everything"? Well, only if your everything is quite small. Evernote client for Windows simply freezes and become unusable when the client database grows to about 10 Gb.So why the ... I would need more data? To kill the app dead completely? On my main home PC I amend the problem by relocating the database to SSD. Maybe with SSD it can grow to more than 10 Gb.I will never find out because Evernote is installed other 4 PCs I use and on them there is no SSD, and Evernote is not very usableon them already. Last year Evernote said: "Yes, our software is not so good as it should be but we will make it better".Apparently this making will take more than a year at least. Well, for now and foreseeable future that piece ofsoftware called "Evernote Client" does not worth my money. And it's not all about space. If a file is in Evernote, it's hard to access it from anything but Evernote. If it's in Dropbox, it's very easyto access it from anything and everywhere. I live now and not in some distant bright future. So I migrated most of Evernote contents, especially files and photos, from Evernote to other solutions.Mostly text notes and web clips are left. My yearly subscription expired this month. And I've got to thinking, do I need to prolong it. And I realised, that now, when I ceased to "remember everything" in Evernote, I do not. Text notes? 60Mb per month is usually enough. If not, it will be cheaper to pay $5 once or twice a year. Premium features? They mostly fall in one of these groups:Ones that I could easily live without (passcode)Ones that looks nice on paper but are completely useless (related notes)Ones that are good in principle but so badly carried out that I do not use them (editable shared notebooks)Ones that I would miss, but even together they IMO don't worth $45 a year (notes sync on iOS)So I quit. While Evernote fails its promise to remember everything they will fail to get my pay. ...is it forever? Link to comment
