      Evernote vs Notational Velocity opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Evernote is still a legitimate alternative to Notational Velocity, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Notational Velocity is focused on plain text notes, while Evernote handles them in a proprietary format with formatting and the files are not saved in your HDD for easy access.

      NV is a small and highly focused utility for quick jotting and recall based on instant feedback from search. Additionally, using plain text and the filesystem allows interoperability with not just other apps but the tools of the OS, such as grep. Evernote is a large, cumbersome, and highly proprietary app with none of these features.
