This is a late addition to this thread but I have to weigh in and express my disappointment with Evernote as well. It's not the pricing policy or feature changes that have me bothered. It's the BUGS. Evernote is, by far, the buggiest software on my computer--and on my mobile devices. And that's not a new thing, which is the problem. The bugs are well known and well reported, yet they persist, year after year.
This is the thing that has had me lately casting about for an alternative. It's a shame because the idea behind Evernote is genius. It's just that the execution is lacking. I know tech can be difficult so I gave them a few years to work things out. But my patience has started to noticeably fray.
