Amazon Cloud Drive

Amazon Cloud Drive is a fantastic backup solution for storing your digital files on the web, but if you want to manage, tweak, organize or otherwise maintain those files after they have reached the cloud, the experience immediately begins to suffer. This is especially noted when major competitor products like Microsoft and Dropbox offer similar services at similar prices, but offer far better interfaces for file management.

Evernote

If you are a photo or video buff or somebody who is going to create lots of notes with lots of large attachments and/or try to email them into your Evernote account, you are probably going to find it challenging, given the email size limitation (5MB), the Note size limitation (100MB), and the monthly data synchronization limitation (1GB). Other than that, which does not apply to most people, I cannot see how this app would not benefit virtually anybody.

Pros

  • As far as we know, it's the best value. Our current plan is for something like 4-5 terabytes.
  • Good interface both on the website and on the app.

  • AUTOMATIC & SYSTEMATIC EMAIL ORGANIZATION: Any email can be sent to one's Evernote account via a unique Evernote email address assigned when you set up your account. By blind copying your Evernote email address when you send important emails, you can keep all your important emails in one place, where they can be accessed by any of your web-connected devices. Having instant access in the cloud is outstanding. Further, you can assign specific Notebooks, Tags, and even Reminders to emails that you send to your Evernote email address with a simple system set up by Evernote that utilizes the "@, #, and !" symbols in the subject line. I LOVE IT! For emails that I receive that are important, I siply hit "Forward" and then send them to my Evernote account with the proper coding for Notebook, Tags, and Reminders.
  • MULTI-PLATFORM INSTANT SYNCHRONIZATION: I work on my iPhone, iPad, and laptop intermittently throughout the day. I have Evernote loaded on all of them. Whenever I enter something on any of those platforms, it is instantly synchonized with the other platforms. I don't have to worry about which device I have. My notes are with me.
  • POST-IT(R) NOTE CAMERA: OK, I am biased here, as I work on the solution that Post-it(r) has with Evernote, but this is a really useful tool that I love, really. I take meeting notes all day long on Post-it(r) Big Pads that measure 11" x 11". They are Limeade colored, which is one of the 4 colors of Post-it(r) Notes recognized by the built-in Post-it(r) Note Camera that is included with the free version of Evernote. When I get back to my desk, I simply open the Post-it(r) Note Camera and instantly capture my meeting notes in Evernote. They are automatically filed in my "Meeting Notes" Notebook in Evernote, as I told Evernote to put Limeade Post-it(r) Notes there. Further, my handwritten notes become searchable by the character recognition built into Evernote. Then, I can access my notes anywhere or share them with others in a flash. It's awesome.
  • BUSINESS CARD CAMERA: Evernote has a new and improved feature that allows you to instantly capture business cards, upload contact details from the person's LinkedIn profile, and even send an invitation to connect with a person directly from Evernote. It is a seamless and impressive integration.

Cons

  • They recently did some kind of update that changed it from Amazon Cloud Drive to Amazon Photos, which made things a bit confusing. Still unsure sometimes where to go or what app to open.
  • I wouldn't mind more robust functionality in terms of pausing uploads or seeing which individual files are uploaded and potentially duplicates of files that have already been uploaded.

  • Allow more devices to be added to account
  • Can be pricey for multiple users
  • Would like more interaction with other programs

The system is very easy to use and it's use of apps for almost all devices and hardware makes it even easier to manage and store photos and documents. I highly recommend this as an easy to use solution for novices!

Generally issues are by connectivity and not Evernote availability but I have had issues in the past with cross-client consistency of data which Evernote Support has ID'd as bugs that are still unresolved as far as I know

Evernote is the most useful productivity tool in the virtual world. You can make all your notes without physical paper or pen and write your all notes virtually and save them online or offline.

Alternatives Considered

Actually I think both Box and Dropbox are easier to use and have better features for sharing files, especially if you need password security on those files, but Amazon is better for storing tons of data. Box and Dropbox are much more expensive to store a lot of files.

Much more flexible and full-featured, although the latest version of notes has gotten much better. Evernote supports tags, multiple notebooks, and the sharing of notebooks.
