What does Evernote do well? Evernote has become my external brain. I dump client notes in there, conference takeaways, ideas for blog posts and products, and much, much more. It's a great space to stash all your thoughts, and take them with you wherever you go.
What does Evernote not do well? I've been an Evernote user for over four years, and have had no issues with it.
What do you wish you had known about Evernote before using? I signed up for a paid account because I was traveling overseas at the time with limited internet access. I didn't know I'd have to get a paid account to be able to easily access everything offline.
Have you used a competitor to Evernote? If so, how does it compare? The only other thing I've used is Stickies on my MacBook Air or the notepad feature on my iPhone. Stickies is great, but really only for small notes. And, a couple of times, my notepads have disappeared off my phone, so the data was gone. That's why I initially turned to Evernote.
