  1. Janik ... I can recommend workflowy.com for cloud-based bullet point lists. 100% reliable in my experience and has some slick features like really good collapse/expand of subbranches, double-click to make a given bullet sub-branch become the full-screen view, tagging and filtering via tags, sharing, and more. Not an evernote replacement obviously, but if you need really good and reliable bullet-point lists in a webapp give workflowy a try (free).
  2. I've been a user of Evernote for years, and have been a vocal advocate of it to my friends. I'm reaching the breaking point with some of it's bugs though, with the most frustrating being bulleted/numbered lists. Bulleted/numbered lists has been broken in evernote *forever.* I use desktop version on both PC and Mac, and always updated to the latest version within a day. And it has remained broken forever on both. The most egregious bug is that it seems to get very messed up with (1) multiple indent levels, (2) when trying to cut/paste within the list, (3) deleting in general. (Those are not odd use cases, obviously!) The bug will then have many manifestations, but the most common is a weird "space" in the bullet list that can't be corrected/deleted - it becomes a persistent gap/space, and seems to mess up the integrity of the whole list. Further, indentation levels get messed up, and sometimes the next bullet disappears. This is an inexcusable bug for a product at this stage in it's lifecycle. The core value proposition of evernote is organization and note taking (everNOTE), and bulleted lists are one of the primary ways of doing this for many people. It is embarrassing and amateurish that a product with a massive office visible from 101, a valuation of $1B, and a recent round that raised $70M, can't have a functioning note taking feature for their note taking product. For those out there for whom bulleted lists is one of the main things they want to use evernote for, I suggest you take a look at workflowy.com. Best web-based note taking / bulleted list tool I've ever seen, with a lot of really cool features such as zooming in / collapsing & expanding, sharing, tagging, and more. Light weight yet powerful. And evernote, you should seriously consider buying them. Or at least fix this very basic feature fast! I've begun switching over to workflowy for many things, and if I'm going to spend my time in that app for note taking, outlining, to-do listing, etc., then I start having a lot less reason to use EN. Note: I am being harsh because I love you!
