I am currently experiencing a dilema. I have been a Premium Evernote user for a few years and have about 1000 various notes. Problems with Evernote: 1. Slow - Evernote tries to be everything on too many platforms at once 2. User interface on mac is relatively ugly and not mac like 3. Easy to get everything in and time consuming to get data out of Evernote. 4. Evernote philosophy is - store everything, which I came to dislike. 5. There is always some kind of problem with actual text editing. What I want: I am a very visual person. I prefer to process things and see them rather than just mindlessly copy and store them in Evernote. Lately I have been using MindNode for mind maps a lot and I love it! Simple and very visual. It allows me to actually think about my information and then process it. It is very uncomfortable to store files in Evernote for future search and usage. Right now I am playing around with Together, MindNode and DropBox. So far they are working out well. There is not dedicated iphone app like for Evernote, but realistically I do not need all my notes with me. Questions: What note taking sysmet and software do you use? How do you use it? Why do you use it?
