The idea of running my business and life without Evernote scares me. You should be using it and if you’re not then give it a try today. It is an essential tool for me in so many areas of my business; podcast show planning, note taking for every conversation of importance, planning digital products, collaborating with my virtual assistant…and lots more. I’m in Evernote every day and I’m a Premium subscriber which costs less than $50 a year. Once you know the power of Evernote you’ll never live without it.
They recently pushed out a public Beta of their Evernote 5 Desktop program and unfortunately I’m frustrated with several of the changes. There are some bright spots as well but for now I may go back to the current version. I know change takes time and there are elements that are growing on me but in so many ways it feels like style beat out function in the development of this version. My gripes;
- No customizable menu bar – I’m an advanced user in a sense that I like to customize almost every part of my user experience. In the latest version Evernote took away the ability to customize the top toolbar’s navigation buttons completely and moved everything to the sidebar. Now I’m forced to keep a column open that I used to close almost every time I used the program. It’s difficult when an update gives you less choices than a past version.
