  1. Notion is another popular Evernote alternative. Available on the same platforms save for Linux operating systems, Notion has most of the features found in Evernote as well. In addition to these, Notion is robust, as it can also be used as a project management app, personal database, and a hub for public documentation. However, it lacks optical character recognition and camera capturing support for importing media. Many AlternativeTo users praise its interface as clean and sleek in comparison.

    Notion is a powerhouse and I am excited to see how people implement Agile and Product Management in Notion using their powerful database features.

    It does almost everything better than Evernote, except the camera capture feature and lacks OCR.

    There is no offline option. The android version is too slow.

    It's overall more intuitive, less cluttered and more functional than Evernote. This is the first note taking app I've enjoyed using from day one.

    It looks great, with a lot more features. Evernote is quite cluttered, whereas Notion's UI is really sleek.

    It manages to do more than any other note taker while feeling less cluttered than Evernote.

  2. Nimbus Note icon

    • Firefox

    Nimbus Note features an interface that is incredibly similar to Evernote's, but it has a few limitations in comparison. For one, it's not available for Linux or as a Firefox browser plugin. It also has a 100 MB limit for synced data and is not updated as frequently due to the development team's smaller size. Like Evernote, it does not encrypt data, so for those looking for a more private alternative, this likely isn't for you.

    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!

    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 has the potential to seriously challenge Evernote. I found it intuitive, easy to use with a beautiful and neat interface. Better than OneNote esp since it offers tagging.

    Nimbus Note is for PC users, very simillar to Evernote. It is possible to import all information at once. If you are fine with 100 MB synced data it is free for any number of devices. It has very good online web interface, Windows app is nice, work offline but has some bugs in text editor (formatting) and has no updates for a long period. I cannot recommend Windows Metro App, it is unusable. For users, who prefer MS or Google and want to use images in their notes, is it possible way.

    Nimbus Note looks similar, and with similar functionality to Evernote, and a bit faster too.

    It's a task manager, not a note taker.

    The problem with notetaking apps like Evernote or Apple Notes is that once you write a note, after a week you never look at it again. Without any organization, you're stuck praying that search will work for your future self.

    Notejoy is a superior alternative to Evernote. Much cleaner UI and focus on making writing the focus. Also has every feature that Evernote has, and just feels better, cleaner, and lightweight
