Quitting Evernote for DEVONthink

October 2, 2017 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

Information worker Yann Rousse switched from Evernote to DEVONthink. He described how he managed the transition in detail in an excellent blog post on Medium:

Moving to DEVONthink from Evernote is not a trivial change. The new tools available to handle my Information and Knowledge activities are quite different and in many ways, far more powerful. The learning curve has started for me but I feel DEVONthink is not only excellent but most importantly the proper fit for me. I’m just beginning to perceive how I can now extend my use of such tool as most barriers I had with Evernote have been lifted now.

I’m convinced I made the right move and, considering the significant improvements added to DEVONthink and DEVONthink To Go apps in 2017, at the right time. I’m also hoping for further improvements with incoming iOS11 and the strong push the new OS brings in terms of capabilities for the iPad toward Pro users.

Yann talks about why he quit Evernote, why he chose our software as the best solution for him, and how he set up his own WebDAV server for synchronizing his databases in private. Read his post here.
