    Not an archiver. Simplenote is for just that: simple markdown notes.

    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.

    Nimbus Note is practically an Evernote clone - and a great app too (I use it often).

    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!

    Completely different application. Great for quick notes to stick to the desktop or an application, but not good for storing web pages, photos, etc.

    Dynalist uses outlines for organizing your notes. Unlike Workflowy, it allows you to separate your outlines into separate folders and to nest outlines. Lots of excellent features. A great alternative to Evernote if you're look for a digital bullet journal.

    It's a completely different format, with notes inside stacks and then inside notebooks, but its easy to use, highly customisable, and allows for integration from evernote! It's the best alternative.

    It is basically attempting to overtake Evernote since their pricing restructure. You can import pictures, tasks are emailed to you when due. Customizable folders.

    Probably the most complete open source, self-hosted or paid-for Evernote alternative in terms of functionality. Sadly, the English instructions aren't easy to find or that clear. But it works phenomenally well as an Evernote alternative.

    It supports, markdown, sequence diagram, flowchart, math, and syncing. The desktop clients (Win/MacOs) also export to HTML and PDF. It support Nested notebooks. I doesn't have web clipper, and this is fine as I don't need it. I like to structure my notes using Markdown. Many of instructions are in Chinese and some are in English. If you drop in question in English (in the forum), someone would reply in English. The team is in the progress of translating Chinese manual to English.
