4 Best Evernote Alternatives from the Lifehacker Readers

Over the past few years Evernote has turned from a light, convenient and beloved service to a cumbersome monster. And if before switching to other services did not make sense, now everything has changed. All these years, competitors did not sit still, but evolved, and ambitious newcomers appeared. In 2017, if you are not satisfied with Evernote, the choice is quite wide. That’s what the readers of Layfhaker advise.

Keep

Keep

  • Price: is free.
  • Platforms: Android, iOS, Chrome, web.
  • Web Clipper: yes, through extension.
  • The main minus: Some seem too simple.

Very simple and fast service from Google, available on mobile platforms and on the web. Google Keep attracts the visibility of displaying records. Each note is a sticker on a virtual board, which can contain not only text, but lists, photos, sketches, reminders, including geolocation. Also, there is shared access with real-time monitoring of changes and integration with Google Now, which will appreciate the owners of Android-devices.

Simplenote

  • Price: is free.
