  1. While I switched to Keep It a while ago, I just wanted to come back to this thread and mention a new app called Craft. It's more of a writing/research app and not really a file bucket solution, but it might be of interest to others. I've been beta testing it and it's the most performant and fluid user experience I've ever seen. Like Federico from MacStories mentioned, a native Notion, done well. So, if you want to feel embarrased for Evernote version 10, Craft version 1.0 will do the trick. The difference in quality just couldn't be higher, it's absolutely nuts. And that's just UI and UX.
  2. @bigtelco I've done the same after 12 years of Premium. Switched to Keep It by Reinvented Software. This and Apple Notes are just vastly superior apps. I still get emails from here and will take a look every once in a while, just to know if Evernote will pull out of this (not that I'm gonna switch back, hell no). But waiting months or potentially years for an overpriced app to reach its former state of features? Nope.
  3. Yeah, I wasn't gonna write anything, especially for basic features like making text bold or checklists. I made the comparison of features between Keep It and Evernote to provide an objective comparison after @wbutchart's nonfactual feedback and then somehow Bear was dragged into this and then tech support. As @Escaped to Keep It mentioned, it has become obvious that @wbutchart is not familiar with even the basics of the app (and iPadOS features like drag and drop and long-press???) and I would just recommend he consult the in-app documentation for further questions instead of claiming mis
  4. As @Escaped to Keep It mentioned, formatting text options are in the toolbar (if you don't use an external keyboard and are not using cmd+b). It says “Aa“ on the left and it quickly gives you access to “Styles“, like Title, Heading, Subheading, Body and you can also save new styles, in this case bold if that's what you want. Or you can also just select “Format“ and do everything from there. If you don't wanna press “Aa“, just tap into the text field in any note and there will be Bold, Italic and Underline options right at the cursor. You can obviously also just select any text make it bold. Th
  5. Yeah, I have. But it's still mostly intended as a writing app like 1A Writer or Ulysses, as reflected in their own description from their website. While Bear has powerful features, it still is comparing Apples to Oranges when Evernote and Keep It (and even Apple Notes) have more features overall. Bear can't even do OCR. You might not need those, that's fine, but Bear is a completely different category of app. I also think you don't know Keep It well, because it has features that Evernote (and Bear) don't have, especially now when comparing it to iOS version 10 and the upcomin
  6. I'm not following. Bear is a Markdown editor with tags. Keep It (which also has Markdown support) has many more features. Even Evernote and Apple Notes have many more features than Bear (OCR for images and attachments, in-app attachment editing, PDF annotation, in-app scanner, encryption, …). They are complete document management solutions, while Bear is more of a writing software like 1A Writer or Ulysses.
  7. Since the Keep It files are just located in Finder, they are part of any backup strategy you have, like Time Machine. So, you can have at least hourly versions of any file or note, that can easily be opened by navigating in Finder.
  8. With Keep It, this is only needed for syncing to iOS. All files are offline on Mac and by choice in iOS (all, none, by folder/notebook).
  9. Thanks. Moving 6000+ notes took a few hours (less than expected) and was a pleasant surprise actually. Keep It downloaded them all to iOS in less than 30 minutes (around 20 GB). That's what great software does after all. As an Evernote premium user since early 2008, I think I have the same "right" to offer possible solutions to other users as you do. Only that my proposal didn't involve buying new hardware. In fact, I'll write more about the superior features of Keep It shortly and explain my migration in more detail (including possible shortcomings), to offer some more insight into my de
  10. Do you work for Evernote? I've got an even easier solution. Switch to better software like Keep it or Apple Notes.
  11. Judging by the dozens of negative App Store reviews that mention how slow and sluggish the new version is compared to the older one, my guess is that it could very well be a lucky exception.
  12. Spot on. The issues people are complaining about on the App Store (slow, sluggish, …) are directly related with memory constraints. iOS makes this more apparent because of the limited RAM availability of the devices than a Mac with 32 GB would. Now with iOS 14 and widgets using a lot of memory, the less than optimal framework Evernote chose compunds these problems.
  13. Yeah, that's gone. You might want to upvote these feature requests:
  14. I gave up testing after about 30 PDFs. They all worked in the old version, they all work everywhere else. That's enough legwork done. Time for Evernote to fix it.
