  • Apple Notes hides flexibility and power underneath a veneer of simplicity

    Although the author of these articles is trying to keep a certain perspective on the comparisons, I find the subtle pro-Apple leanings funny.  This article says essentially, "Apple Notes: simple on the surface, powerful underneath."  A couple weeks ago, "OneNote: powerful but needs Office to shine."  Usually an Apple product is touted as, "great, with some hiccups", whereas non-Apple products are usually, "nice, but falls short."  Rose-colored glasses when it's Apple, slightly turd-colored glasses if not.

    I've only used Apple Notes on my iphone, and thought it was a pretty lame to-do list thing only.  I didn't realize it had powers comparable to OneNote or Evernote.  But per this article, a lot of it has to be structured on a Mac.  I've been happy with OneNote, and there is less that I have to do on my personal Mac or work PC that I can't do on my phone.  And OneNote updates on the fly between devices just as Notes does.
