    1. Evernote had long been the gold standard of note taking, flexible, functional and best of all affordable. While its user interface was a little odd at times, the features were excellent, but they made the simple mistake of not enabling wiki style internal links. Instead, they required a user to copy a note link from one note and paste it into another.

      Evernote made the mistake of not allowing on-the-fly wiki-style internal linking.

    1. Evernote is a pale shadow of its former self.

      Idk about that... If anything, Evernote's problem is that it's virtually the same as it always has been. Their recent redesign is worth examination, though.

    1. This is another area where Roam really stands out from Evernote and Notion. Have you tried to link to another page in either of them? It’s a nightmare of right clicks or slash commands, it takes way too long. In Roam it’s so seamless that you can do it without interrupting your typing flow.

      A big benefit of Roam is the speed with which you can make a link to a another page.

    2. Evernote’s is based on three levels: Stacks, Notebooks, and notes. Each note lives in one notebook, which lives in one stack. Notion, Workflowy, and a few others allow infinite nesting. A note lives in a note lives in a note and so on. 

      Two top-down approaches to note taking.

      In evernote your notes live in Stacks, notebooks or notes.

      In Notion and Workflowy you've got blocks than can be infinitely nested.

    1. Unfortunately Evernote stopped its syncing service. Only a pay-account can use syncing across more than two devices. This made it useless for millions of users, who are now forced to export their notes and look for a more contemporary, user-loyal alternative.
