Evernote

“We're Going to Fix This”

Evernote CEO Phil Libin has responded to Jason Kincaid's complaints:

“I got the wrong sort of birthday present yesterday: a sincerely-written post by Jason Kincaid lamenting a perceived decline in the quality of Evernote software over the past few months. I could quibble with the specifics, but reading Jason’s article was a painful and frustrating experience because, in the big picture, he’s right. We’re going to fix this.”

'Evernote, the Bug-Ridden Elephant'

Jason Kincaid loves Evernote, but the service has been letting him down as of late.

“This strategy is tolerable for a social network or messaging app (Facebook got away with atrociously buggy apps for years). But Evernote is literally aiming to be an extension of your brain, the place to store your most important ideas. Its slogan is “Remember Everything”. Presumably the integrity of its data should be of the utmost importance.”

This is exactly the sort of thing that has encouraged me to start moving my archived articles to Pinboard and my other notes to Simplenote.

Evernote Essentials 3.0

Brett Kelly's Evernote Essentials ebook has become the quintessential resource for any Evernote user who wants to get the most out of the service. Today, he has released v3.0 of the book, and it's chock-full of new content. In fact, it's nearly double the size of the last edition (now 159 pages), and even the previous content has been rewritten to reflect Evernote's newer features.

Even if you use Evernote all the time, I'll bet this book can still teach you a few tricks. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy.
