    The only app simillar enough with Evernote that even can import notes from it. No Monthly upload limit like Evernote. FOSS and private :) A little strange to work with at first, but very fun and intutitve after that :)

    The core features of evernote are about clipping information and saving it, note writing text notes. While it might be a good program it doesn't fit.

    Very quick sync, responsive UI, works good across Windows, Linux and Android, although missing support for graphical notes and more text formatting options

    Google Keep is more like a sticky note where as Evernote is a digital filing system where everything is better organized.

    Google Keep doesn't support text formating, only simple plain text. Evernote is more for MSWord-like notes.

    Most comprehensive note, to-do, project management, and archiving software I know of. After years of searching for a decent app to do almost all the things Notion does, I finally found it and it does even more! Updates come through regularly with new features, includes very generous free account, and paid unlimited version is very affordable!

    No Linux, no Mac client, no Firefox plugin. Your data rests unencrypted on US-based data centers in readable format. So all the privacy concerns of Evernote minus some of the convenience.

    this is the closest program I have found that is a direct replacement for Evernote in both function and "feel". Support staff is excellent. There is even an Evernote Importer built in!
