I've used Evernote for years and have saved invoices, receipts, bills, emails, pics, and hand written notes. I've also saved hundreds of news articles and snipped excerpts from websites, which are critically important for my line of work.This past year, when my MacOS crashed my MacBook Pro Retina mid-2012, all of that saved stuff was recovered because it was in the Evernote cloud. In other words, Evernote has been invaluable. So watching the speculation and warnings about the potential demise of Evernote caused me to search for alternatives to save what had been stored.After many evaluations of alternatives, DevonThink Pro was my clear choice and it took only an hour or two to download all documents from Evernote into Pdf or other formats. Meanwhile, I'll continue to use Evernote, but DevonThink has provided me a secure path to save what could be lost...
Good article and I've gotten very concerned about the security of my Evernote data the last several weeks -- actually since they forgot about their customers during last year's ill-advised subscription re-pricing and then screwed up interface. The recent departure of several top executives should give every user worry about its ability to survive. Something about rats and a sinking ship... ;-(((Hence, I'm exploring DEVONthink and really appreciate the helpful advice. Most important will be the ease of transfer of thousands of documents, webpages, and invoices etc., etc. and searching and finding once downloaded. Six years of accumulated data in Evernote is at stake and I simply can't afford to lose it.
