Frank.dg 1,385 Posted January 14, 2015 Share Posted January 14, 2015 This article from The Verge runs us through a promotional bundle/ partnership between Evernote, Wunderlist, Pocket and LastPass. Together with the Evernote Platform awards, the tons of 3rd-party apps showcased in the Evernote App Center and Evernotes open API, this is yet another way that Evernote is saying they don't excel at everything. And that's a great thing. They're not pretending to do everything. http://www.theverge.com/2015/1/13/7536367/evernote-wunderlist-pocket-lastpass-bundle-productivity-pack This "Productivity Pack" they've got going for US$60 a year for the premium versions of all 4 apps, basically says that Evernote does not particularly specialize in being an intuitive, fully-integrated task-management solution in itself (Wunderlist), it is not the best for storing your passwords (LastPass), and neither is it the most comfortable environment when it comes to reading your stuff later (Pocket) - you know, no dark background theme except night mode in presentation mode. This doesn't bode well for "sexy encryption", dark themes for reading in Evernote and more integrated solutions for task management in-app... the absence of which is not necessarily an indication that Evernote is somehow falling short. At least not from the point of view of those who recognize that these are not exactly Evernote's strongest points. Would we really want Evernote to do everything? Maybe many things... but not everything. I'm quite happy with Gingko, WorkFlowy and my Kanbana app. They are good supplements... or maybe even vice-versa. At the very least, Evernote is one of a couple of tools you will want to have in your arsenal. Link to comment
