Evernote is an excellent tool for keeping track of client relationships and taking notes. The indexing is excellent, with text in images and text. However, a Wiki might be better for large-scale collaboration. It is a perfect use case for it, and it is hard to beat. To-do lists that need to be tracked or have due dates assigned do not work well in Evernote. It's almost like a library that anyone can add to, edit, tag, and reference. Evernote has a limited checklist function in terms of tasks meant to be kept in one place rather than reviewed and organized over time.

Figma is the best product design tool! It has fantastic coverage across the different verticals required for product design and the team seems to be consistently leveling up those areas all the time. If you are looking for more intensive motion design or illustration tooling, Figma has them but there are definitely tools that do them better. Although, for my team, Figma is more than enough. It allows us to go from conceptual design & collaboration to high fidelity designs & user testing in one tool and that feels awesome.
Read full review Pros Ability to share meeting notes with others (like that it works well with Rocketbook). The To-Do list helps with organization and project deadlines. Able to sync to multiple devices so you can use it in the office or in the field. Read full review Collaboration! we stopped sharing screen in zoom, now we all jump into Figma and magically everything connects and flow way better. Memory management! Figma manage all the assets so well, that we sometimes have all project assets in one single file with multiple pages and it loads instantly. Keeping everything in one place, easy to access and to developers or designers complain about they stations running out of ram! Sharing!, getting a link to an exact pixel is magical, discussion can now have way more context than what it had before. Auto-layouts! Although is not new in the ecosystem, Figma does a pretty awesome job with molecules and particles, so you can create better design systems that can stretch to any screen, making it a design once for all devices! Read full review Cons The free application's feature will meet most users needs, but the Premium plan is expensive. Though Evernote lets you create and manage notes effortlessly, its basic plan supports sync between two devices and does not support offline mode. Can't export data easily to other applications. Read full review With the canvas sizes it supports, there should be more options available directly instead of creating it custom. Their preview window, preview is different in terms of size compared to actual deployment. They should include some guided tutorials and best-practices for new designers.

I can't really imagine how much they'd have to charge me to make me quit Evernote. I can't really think of any technology that has changed my life as much without going back to email in the 90s, or the introduction of the iPhone. I know I sound ridiculous, but it would be really tough for me to live without it. If I were forced to choose between my smart phone (and keep in mind that I get lost in my driveway) and my Evernote, I'd probably choose my Evernote.

Read full review Usability Basic visual organization - ability to create a notebook and store user notes inside of it. Basic easy navigation - You can quickly move in and out of files and notes. User intuitive addition - whatever you need to add to your document, it's relatively easy to understand and use. We find overall that we still want some functionality in creating better task lists, boards, and other things that we find in Notion - which is the tool that we use as a team notebook/storage space. page V

Our designers and developers love this tool because it eliminates the need to package designs into a separate folder. We used to upload all PSDs or In Design files in a dropbox folder, and this tool changes that. However, as a project manager, I find it a little clunky. Most of the time, all I want to do is view a specific design, but Figma defaults to be zoomed out and then you have to zoom in and scroll to the specific design in order to see it

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

I bet you won’t even need to call their support. Their product has never failed me. Simply put. But if you were to email them to gather some details or help, I bet they won’t disappoint you. Don’t worry about the support, it’s the last thing you should worry about this product.

I haven't used their support lately but in the past, they had a chat that I used often. They often responded in a few hours and were able to give a satisfactory solution. I would imagine it's less personal now but the community has expanded drastically so there are more resources out there to self serve with a bit of Google magic.

Make sure you think about your tags. If you end up with multiple similar tags then things aren't grouped together as you might prefer. For instance if you have a tag called Disney and Walt Disney, this will split up your articles. Evernote makes it simple to correct, but I suggest you make sure your users look closely at the existing tags before creating new ones.

The most similar program I have used is
by Microsoft, and other note taking programs exist like Notepad and Microsoft Word but those programs do not offer syncing like Evernote does. There are newer programs in the space like Dropbox Paper and Google Docs which would be on a list of ones to consider.

I have previously used
, Adobe's XD platform, and other workflow or diagram-based tools as well. Each product or service has its own version of what Figma has, but nothing compares to the ease-of-use, collaboration tools, and future-proof thinking Figma's product team is able to deliver consistently.
Read full review Return on Investment Evernote has allowed our school's over 3000 students and staff members to work more efficiently instead of spending time on making physical notes, clicking pictures, and uploading them to the cloud in order to share them The investment in Evernote Premium has also allowed for heavier files to be attached in each note such as student work that allows teachers to be certain that students have followed deadlines and finished assigned tasks Evernote has allowed our school to smoothly transition in and out of online learning as the local COVID-19 protocols change and student work requires one platform to be based on throughout Read full review Easy to make a good impression of our deliveries via easy to use prototype links Easy to find new collaborators with previous experience with the app, as Figma is a leading tool today Could be cheaper (specifically for countries with worse econonomies) Read full review ScreenShots
