    Hey guys, looking to replace Evernote, so far I haven't really found anything except OneNote, but I'm not a fan of the ui. What I'm looking for is a note taking program that will sync with my iPhone, iPad, MacBook, and Android phone. That has automatic geotagging, Apple Pencil/spen support, photos, and search (including hand written notes). Does this app even exist? Thanks.

    Also, I don't mind paying for a good app, but I really hate subscription payments, main reason I'm dropping Evernote.

    I don't know if it has search, but doesn't Keep have a lot of that?

    It has some, but not all. No Apple Pencil/spen support, no geotagging, and no Mac app, though I could go on the website, I prefer an app. So far it looks like OneNote is the only one that has the features I need, hopefully they'll work on the ui.

    Doesn't it have one of those Google Chrome apps that has a window and can look just like a normal app as long as you let Chrome run in the background?

    What don't you you like about OneNote? I far prefer it to EN.

    Don't like the user interface, prefer Evernote's. But it looks like I'll have to get used to Microsoft's, as I haven't been able to find anything with all those features.

    I really like OneNote on desktop for work-related notes. I like the better formatting options and more traditional notebook organisation that OneNote provides for these types of notes.

    But I find OneNote pretty slow and clunky on mobile (in particular, search). I prefer Evernote on mobile.
