  1. you might want to look at devonthink...have moved over in october and am very happy...with all of it, their clipper included...other folks here have recommended keepit (mac) and joplin (mac & windows).

  3. am all fine with what you are saying, it's simply that I do not trust EN any more after what I have experienced over the last few months - both product as well as communications wise....I do have backups I could re-instate in the very unlikely case I would want to come back, but I do not want to leave my data with EN even on the pure speculation of them considering data mining...wild guess? probably, but would you have guessed in august or september what was about to come? am very happy with Devonthink with all my use cases and will very likely stay there for the coming years...never woul
  4. if we follow this train of thought you will likely not know about a transaction until it is official, which might or might not be too late for saving your data from google (you could argue it is already on theirs servers, but I don't think google can actually access it at the moment). having migrated away to Devonthink in october due to the V10 mess I guess this is the point I start actively deleting my EN data...
  5. very interesting point - I hadn't thought about that. let's assume for a second you are right. some of ENs recent decisions seem to make a lot more sense in that light: - removing local (i.e. non synced) notebooks as they cannot be data mined, - not addressing paying customers concerns as their revenue might not matter as much strategically, also it would be a way for EN to monetize those non paying free customers. might even be a mixed form where you won't get data mined as a premium customer and ad supported for free. they certainly would loose a lot of premium customers, but
  6. just out of curiosity: it sure looks nice but what new functionality does the home screen add that did not exist in the side bar before? and more importantly: what features you have canned in V10 will be re-instated when? and which are gone for good? thanks...
  7. it turns out DevonThink does not take the data from ENs servers but instead from the local database of the mac "legacy" client. this allows it to keep not only the notebooks and tag structure intact, but also import all the local, i.e. non synced notebooks. and it is keeping that local data local that was one of my key points for moving over to DT after the release of V10 in october (am very happy I switched). have summarized my experience over there in case somebody is interested: https://discourse.devontechnologies.com/t/moving-from-evernote-to-devonthink-in-2020/59211
  8. have been in a similar situation to yours and have migrated to devonthink in october - only regret not having done so earlier. for me and my use cases / my setup devonthink is truly an upgrade in comparison to any version of EN. I have summarized my experience with the migration over at their forums. here's the link, if you are interested: https://discourse.devontechnologies.com/t/moving-from-evernote-to-devonthink-in-2020/59211
  9. I was one of these faithful, almost religious, EN users and this mess has made me move on to devonthink - something I never would have thought possible just a few months ago. forcing the barebones V10 on unsuspecting users seems (judging from the forums here) to have triggered quite a significant number of folks to move elsewhere and cancel their premium subscriptions. Ian's blog post can be read as an attempt to stem that tide. what that could mean is that things have started to move / slide and that EN has created the unenviable position of no longer being in charge of the process, but needi
  10. if you are on the apple / mac side DevonThink is a real good substitute for my use cases (in fact it goes far beyond what EN "legacy" can do). have been using it for a month now and am very happy with it...
  11. while apple only, I would add devonthink to the mix. have migrated out of this EN mess a few weeks back and am very happy with the decision...
  12. I think it is even worse: they are likely quoting actual numbers, however from a suspicious base sample. there might indeed be only 5% of EN accounts using tags. but that is not the correct metric. the question is what % of *paying* customers use tags. I am pretty sure that number is *not* 5%. one can beautifully tailor statistics to say almost anything you want and this is a nice yet sad example.
  13. @Markus (Graz) as you seem to be living in the apple universe and contrary to AlbertRs comment I have recently migrated to Devonthink because of the mess EN has created with V10 and most say it both outperforms EN and is far more feature rich for my use cases...my only regret is not having migrated sooner...
  14. well, this is obviously hard to resolve one way or another without having internal information of EN which we both don't seem to have access to. neither amazon nor netflix saw a decline in their paying customer base along the way. they were commercially in the red for a long time, sure, but didn't take steps to *reduce* their income. essentially their message was: "yes, sure, we are burning a lot of money, but boy are we growing!". EN both does not seem to grow *and* seems to be alienating its commercial base. so outside of a story of "yes, sure, we are driving away some of our paying customer
  15. fully agree with your comments @tavor, especially on the company valuation. EN is a fairly "old" startup, so it is no longer being valued on customer numbers (that could be monetized in some way form or fashion by a new owner) alone any more. they need to show decent revenue, at the minimum self sustainability or a strong upward trajectory. so if there is a significant drop in the revenue forecast, that indeed would create an issue for the exec team, both from the VC owners as well as for their own bonuses. clearly I am just wild guessing here as there are no public numbers, but I read tw
