Remember the Milk is a task list application first. The notes are not the focus here and the options are limited when it comes to taking notes. Evernote is a note taking application and it specializes in that field. If you need to take notes, use Evernote (or another note taking app but this one is good), if you need to manage tasks/todos and attach notes ...

Things Evernote does better: Capture notes from anywhere: One of their main goals is to create a client for almost any product you own (e.g. iPhone, PC, Mac, iPad, Android, Blackberry), and only then fall back on to the web interface if your client isn't supported. Springpad is mainly web only. Powerful tagging: You can use hierarchies as well as stemming. ...

Did you read the part at the very beginning of the post that says, "UPDATE: Things have changed quite a bit since this post. Please read our new Sharing and Collaboration post."? If you haven't clicked that new Sharing and Collaboration link, do it - there are new instructions, and you need to do this in the web client, not the desktop client. The quick ...

Microsoft's OneNote I would suggest Microsoft's OneNote. Although this is a pay-for desktop app, you can use the online webapp version of OneNote for free at http://office.live.com/. You also get 25GB of storage with the free SkyDrive account, which is far more than what Evernote gives you free, and the interface is absolutely amazing*. NOTE: Amazing if ...

There isn't anything built-in to either Evernote or Google Docs (now called "Google Drive") that will do a synchronization. Both services have an API so it would be possible for a third-party to build a synchronization tool. One service which seems to do what you ask is cloudHQ. As of June 2012, this is a paid service which has a free option with limited ...

The easiest way would be to create tags for your contexts (e.g. @Home, @Work, etc.). This, in turn, requires that each individual action is a separate note. That's the basic principle that all systems will share. As far as how you organize your system, many people recommend different ways of doing this: Darren Crawford: Recommends 3 notebooks: Inbox, Next ...

If Evernote isn't easily GTD-able, don't try and force it. You'll spend more time adapting your system rather than actually using it. The important thing is to find something that works for you. Many people tweak GTD to fit their own needs, and only you can determine if a system will fit for you. Things like having the same tagging system represent tags, ...

The major differences are that Evernote is designed for note-taking, web clippings, and memos while Remember the Milk is focused on tasks with a due date. Evernote can hold many formats of information you find while RTM can send you reminders through email, SMS, or Twitter of set tasks. Don't hesitate to try both of them out. I use both regularly.

There's no way to link to notes that will consistently work on all the clients. It's one of the most requested features, and it is "definitely planned" by the developers. [source] There's a hack to doing it on the Mac by using the exploit of spotlight, however this will only work on the same Mac. As well as linking to notes using the web client, however ...

Seems like the Evernote folks have written something especially for this case: Sign into Google Notebook Click on a notebook that you want to export Click the Export link at the bottom of the page Choose ‘Atom’ from the export options. Save the Google Atom Notebook file to your desktop Then go over to https://www.evernote.com/GoogleNotebooks.action and ...

CloudHQ is a paid service that supports one-way syncing between a variety of cloud platforms I can't comment on whether or not the output would be supported by LibreOffice or HTML, but it seems likely that it would. I would email the developers.

You can share your notebooks for sure. In your Evernote Web account, you will see a new, blue Sharing section in the navigation panel. Click on “sharing setup” to begin the process of sharing your notebooks. Select the notebook you wish to share, then decide whether to share that notebook with individuals or the world. There are two additional ...

There is a Chrome extension that offers this functionality; https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/hffokedddmbcngcmkhpbdoeljdglfpna?hl=en ... add gmail like keyboard shortcuts to Evernote ... Hope this helps

There are many alternatives, though perhaps none with the richness of Evernote. BTW, I think that offline support is still available. It was available for favourites on the standard login but for everything if you sign up for Premium - has that changed? One alternative is Microsoft OneNote. You can have free OneNote notebooks by signing up to live.com, the ...

I found another topic on the subject here http://www.40tech.com/2009/08/25/getting-things-done-gtd-in-evernote-with-only-one-notebook/ At first, when adapting Evernote into my GTD system, I used multiple notebooks. My default notebook was used for my Inbox, and I created several others others for specific GTD folders and separate projects, each with ...

This feature is available in Evernote for Mac 2.2 Beta 1, and Evernote for Windos 4.4 Prerelease (and, assumably, in future standard releases). "Copy Note Link" appears under the Edit menu. It is also available in the right-click menu on notes. This link can be pasted into Evernote or another application. If pasted in a plain text document, you can see ...

Tagging - this isn't a standard function in Google Docs, I think the closest you can come is setting up folders. searching through the documents is pretty easy (as you'd expect from Google!) Clipping - Can't be done natively, I think I read about an app someone had produced that would do this, but I never tried it. Email - I think this used to happen, but ...

Simplenote recently added Dropbox syncing as a premium feature: Dropbox is a great way to sync files. When you link your Dropbox account to your Simplenote account, all your notes in Simplenote will appear as text files in the Dropbox directory of your choice. Thereafter, your notes and files stay synchronized as you make changes. Syncing happens in both ...

Nevernote is about as close as you'll get, I fear. I'd have to dig around a bit but I'm pretty sure I've seen a quote from Evernote folk saying they'd never be doing a *nix port. They're counting on folks to use the API for other platforms.

Currently , there is no Evernote native app for Linux , but i saw an article states that Evernote 4 for Windows runs perfectly under Wine . Source :Web Upd8 - Install Evernote 4 under Wine

Evernote doesn't support pushing content into the client. Having the client continuously polling their servers at a very frequent interval would place a lot of unnecessary load on their servers, which is probably why the minimum is 5 minutes. The best solution is to manually press the 'Sync' button in the client if you want to immediately view a note that ...

Here's one way to solve this problem, using a combination of Evernote and the Wisestamp browser extension (available for both Firefox and Chrome). The features needed are available in the free versions of these tools. Evernote allows you to create a public notebook. That notebook comes with an RSS feed. You can also use Evernote's tags to organize your ...

Take a look at a product called FileThis. It fetches your documents and delivers them to the destination of your choice, including Dropbox and Evernote. For full disclosure, I work at FileThis. Sounds like we do exactly what you are looking for.

Evernote used to offer this functionality, but they've since discontinued it. A third-party web application, Delicious to Evernote, now offers this functionality, but only imports 1000 bookmarks and sometimes errors with Error processing : Exception of type 'Evernote.EDAM.Error.EDAMUserException' was thrown. Also note that you need to trust this developer ...

Judging by the way your worded your question, you've already gone through IFTTT's process. Since there's no add-in for URL body, there's no way to capture it this way. You can see all the possible notes IFTTT can create in Evernote in its channel description. However, it is theoretically possible to have auto-clipping of page body because that's a feature ...

It seams Evernote at the time of writing has no support for OATH like many others do. :( The only way at the moment to give a 3rd party access to your notes is to give it your password. If you give your password to a 3rd party they will have the same access rights to your Evernote as you have. This is true for any other service. UPDATE: I was wrong! I ...

If Evernote is running (even in the background), you can use the global hotkey/shortcut Ctrl + Alt + N to switch to Evernote and start a new Note. This works even when on browser is the active window. OK, this is not just one button, but 3 buttons, but you can setup a new global hotkey as well (setup a one-button global hotkey in Windows) See the ...

It happens every month on the same day at 12 AM. That means it won't be exactly every 30 days, since some months have 31 days, for example. Each client's "days left in cycle" behaves differently. The Mac and iPhone clients will display the amount of days inclusively, while the PC and web clients display the amount of whole days left. For example, let's say ...

After waiting years for a good solution to this, I decided to write an open source tool: Main Project Page Download Page Note - the tool requires that you sync your iPhone/iPad via iTunes and do not select the 'encrypt' option (at least until the tool is done). Source is available for paranoid folks.
