One of the great debates of our time is not Sammy vs. David in Van Halen or Ozzy vs. Dio in Black Sabbath. It is Evernote vs. OneNote. There are fans on both sides of the debate, and both are sure they have the best solution.
I personally don’t believe in “best” applications. I think that different applications can serve different purposes for different people, and what might work well for me might not work well for you.
As you can probably tell by a Google search, I am a heavy Evernote user, but this comparison with OneNote has always fascinated me.
I came across this rundown by Lifehacker which compares the two as note-taking apps.
OneNote and Evernote share the same main objective: To help you get organized by keeping all your ideas, saved web pages, and other documents in one place. They also offer similar features, such as a web clipper, Optical Character Recognition (or OCR, which interprets images or scanned information as text), instant syncing of notes to all your devices, and integration with third-party services
Focusing specifically on the web apps of each service, Arafat over at Ergonotes does a side-by-side comparison of the two applications.
Recently I’ve tried Evernote & OneNote web version and made a comparison table for you. Hope it will give you more understanding regarding these two products and help you make a right choice.
How about you? Are you an Evernote or a OneNote person? If you use both, I’d love to hear about that too.
