3 Reasons I Still Use Evernote as My Note Taking App

  1. Evernote is great for note taking. No, it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles like Notion or Roam Research, but if all you do is taking quick notes, Evernote is a perfect choice. It’s fast, simple, and available on virtually all platforms — iOS, Android, Web, Windows, Mac. You can quickly jot down random ideas that pop into your mind so you don’t lose them.

    Evernote’s text editor isn’t too shabby either. It has all the basic formatting tools for writing; in fact, I’ve been using Evernote to draft my works before porting them to other platform for publishing.
  2. Evernote has an amazing search feature. Occasionally I need to search for keywords on my old notes, and nothing frustrates me more than not finding what I had written in the past. Evernote has one of the best text search capabilities among all the note taking apps. On paid version, you can even search text in PDFs, how cool is that.
  3. Evernote’s Web Clipper is awesome. I don’t know about you, but when I stumble across web articles I like, I’d save them for future reference. Evernote Web Clipper browser extension makes it super easy to capture them. Yes, other note taking apps also come web clipping tools, but for Evernote, you can customize how you’d like them captured. My favorite is the “Simplified Article” that simplifies complex web pages for easy reading and processing.
