Seth Clifford describes how and why he is building his own Evernote replacement in Dropbox:
And while Evernote allows you to create notebooks and stacks of notebooks around those, I found myself dumping voluminous amounts of information into it, organizing it, and still not really having an idea where my stuff actually is. Luckily, its search is tremendous and I can usually find what I need. But it still didn’t feel right to me, the way my brain works.
I have been thinking for quite some time about replacing Evernote but despite getting my quote-collection and some scans out of there I have yet to come up with a good way to do it the best way1. Seth does have some real good ideas in there and there’s a lot to get out of this post.
- I am thinking of using Realmacsoftware’s Ember to organize scan’s, PDF’s and so on. I have yet to try though if that would work. ↩
