Replacement needed for Evernote
Apologies dear Zettlers for a(nother) lame app recommendation thread – but who to ask if not this community of obsessive compulsive note takers ;-)
After seven years I finally pulled the plug on my Evernote premium sub. While its search never let me down to get to what I need within seconds, I just can't bring myself to have personal stuff unencrypted in some database on some server anymore – no small thanks to Sascha, Christian and other contributors here. I'm not looking for anything to build a ZK in or handle projects & tasks. And I have a few ideas already...
Here are the use cases I need something else for:
1) storing/retrieving *.pdf docs (it's not a huge library). I'm on Apple products and spotlight seems to search within *.pdf too. Is there anything to be said against just putting them into a suitable, minimal folder structure on my local machine or on iCloud?
2) notes containing inline images and text. This is nothing remotely to do with Zettel either, some stuff for memory's sake mainly. I'm spoiled by EN's image OCR, although it's not strictly a must. I think Bear Pro does inline images and gives me access to my files? Image OCR?
3) storing bookmarks/articles from the web. EN was great for that especially with the webclipper and the ability to either save just a bookmark or capture a whole site/article (later you'd just have to remember some keyword from the thing and EN would pull it up). For this usecase I'm not even concerned about using a SaaS tbh, so I might get away with keeping EN around in the free version just for that. What do you use for that kind of thing?
Ich verzettel mich... ¯_(ツ)_/¯
