Evernote

Wunderlist - not the best system for lists of tactical tasks. To do this, there are much more convenient services. But on the other hand, this system is well suited for strategic tasks, decomposition, goal-setting, because it is well suited for long records, formatting, attaching other files.It is also good to use the system to maintain your own database. There are convenient functions that will allow you to share work and personal life (tags, folders). You will only have to remember with your memory what exactly is stored in the system. And you can find the necessary note in Wunderlist with a good search system.

Pros

  • Tag articles with multiple keywords
  • Save internet articles and remove ads and items in sidebars
  • Save emails
  • Search full text

Cons

  • DIFFERENT LOOK & FUNCTIONALITY ON DIFFERENT PLATFORMS: I use Evernote on a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, and the Web. The user interface across these 5 platforms varies. Even the basic functionality varies from one platform to another. I have been frustrated by this at times, but I have always been able to figure thing out in the past.
  • EMAIL SIZE LIMITATION: I am an Evernote Premium Subscriber ($45 annually, 1GB monthly data synchronization). Still, I can only email files that are 5MB or less to my Evernote account. This seems very old fashioned and behind the times.
  • IMPROVED CHARACTER RECOGNITION: My handwriting is not great. Hence, Evernote does not read my handwriting very precisely when I am searching for a note. I wish that I could "teach" Evernote how I write certain words. This would allow it to find my notes better.

Evernote is extremely easy and intuitive to use. Open it and start typing. Very little training is required to use even the advanced features.

Reliability and Availability

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

Alternatives Considered

As a professional, I chose to spend my own money on Evernote because it gives me the most value for the cost. Microsoft Office 365 is so prevalent in the workplace, that I expect that my employer would pay for that service. Dropbox for Business is incredibly expensive for what it offers—but, is a very reliable and usable product. In the end though, Evernote is affordable and a good tool for a professional to use from one workplace to the next.

Return on Investment

  • Positive: the software can be used on many platforms
  • Negative: the free version doesn't allow you to have password protection
  • Positive: they are clear innovators in the space
