Trying to replace Evernote #396
Hello! Not sure if this is the proper place to ask general questions... But I'm exploring ways to replace Evernote, and just discovered Standard Notes this week. I LOVE the security & privacy aspect of it, and it works every bit as good, if not better, than SimpleNote. Having said that, I use Evernote extensively with features such as the web clipper, mobile app, and email-in service to capture lots of things such as receipts, web pages, paper documents, etc.
Does Standard Notes offer anything like this? With the extended subscription service, can I actually attach files such as PDF's to individual notes and really use it as a replacement for Evernote?
My alternative would be to use Standard Notes strictly for plain text, and then come up with some other method/process for capturing everything else. Keeping it all secure and private becomes the real challenge.
Hey Dave, I believe we spoke on Slack. In a word, SN is its own notes app, and doesn't try to replace Evernote. If it ends up solving the same set of problems for a particular user, so be it, but it's not our goal. People's note taking habits are so varied and unique that it's impossible to say whether for sure SN will do the trick for you. Best to give it a shot and see how you feel about it.
