For so many years, I have been almost evangelical about Evernote and what a difference it has made to my life. I no longer have a physical filing cabinet - Evernote IS my filing cabinet, and I can access the contents of that cabinet anywhere. It even reminds me about time-sensitive notes that that I have saved there.
As an example, all paperwork relating to my recent car insurance renewal was saved straight to Evernote. All the service history for my car is in Evernote. The registration renewals are in Evernote. The original purchase papers are in Evernote.
So, now that I am selling my car (a little BMW 118i if anyone is interested!!), I have access to all the information about this car at my fingertips - on my iPhone, iPad or computer!
I must say, however, that if I had not become such a major fan of Evernote all those year ago, I would now definitely consider using Microsoft's OneNote as a great alternative for my online filing cabinet.
Reasons for choosing OneNote over Evernote
An important consideration is that I already pay for 1TB of storage as part of my Office 365 subscription, so anything I store in OneNote will be included in that storage allowance. This would save me separately paying for Evernote (for which I currently pay $69.99USD).
Additionally, OneNote has some fantastic features. One in particular that is not yet available in Evernote is the ability to convert an image of a document into editable text - great for cases where you have a hard-copy of a document but not an electronic version, and want to avoid having to manually type the document. (Here's an article we wrote on this a while ago: Another easy solution for converting an image to text.)
Evernote does allow you to search for text in images and scanned handwritten notes, but it doesn't convert it to editable text.
Here is a good article (from one of my favourite business automation tools Zapier) that talks about the relative benefits of each.
In the press recently was news of even further advances from OneNote, in the area of security - important features for those who use OneNote for business and need to be sure of the security of its contents.
