That video Apple did with James Jean, drawing on the new ipad almost had me convinced to get one.

Never heard of it. Looks really nice.
I use evernote mostly for recipes.
I will say that the iOS extensions for Evernote have made it worlds better. I love being able to quickly send webpages and other data to it with a couple taps. The web client SPARK also helps Evernote shine.
I'm considering trying out the premium service with handwriting recognition. Being able to scan in notes from a Fieldnote type pad and have it turn it into digital text feels like the holy grail of note taking and to-do lists to me.
In terms of other alternatives ,I heard Vesper is really nice but apparently they haven't updated it in a while. People are suspecting their may be trouble with development and that's more then enough to prevent me from dropping $9.99 on it. God damn Apple needs to allow free timed trials with upgrade pricing for apps. It's not excusable they haven't yet.
I bought Vesper when it first was released and deleted it a day later. It's minimalistic, so if you need something robust, it's probably not for you.
I use a combination of Drafts, Meteor, and Evernote on iOS and am decently happy with it. I love Drafts so much for capturing quick thoughts. Anything I want to keep later gets exported to Evernote, which is where I archive tons of stuff. I use Meteor like Drafts for pictures basically. It allows you take quick "photo notes" but doesn't save them to your Camera Roll, which is great if like me you take tons of reminder photos you don't want to keep long term. Photos get automatically deleted after 30 days, or you can export them to Evernote or wherever.
Let us know if you try out Google Keep and like it.
My evernote use is very low and it didn't seem worth switching over.
Basically I have a few things in there:
- Account info/Combinations to some locks I have to open very infrequently as well as some related facts. For instance, there is a note in there for my sailboat, it lists the combo to the lock for the boat yard, as well as things like the boat's hull number and parking space number. Or that's where I have the login to my friend's comcast account because usually I use mine (he has some extras) and eventually I remember to search my evernote app.
- Records of things I try out that I might want to buy. Mini-reviews of the different skis I demoed. Notes on sizing from shoes I tried on. Etc.
- Recordings of songs I was learning in my guitar class...but evernote was too clunky for this to be a good solution.
Its probably overkill for what I need, but being able to add photos to notes and the occasional tag was important and lacking from other options I had whenever I started.
fuck! never heard anything from them directly. was in their store 2 months ago activating new phone, no mention. Was on the phone 6 weeks ago after they fucked up my plan, no mention. in the meantime received 3 reminders for payment and no notice. today called and the lady said yeah we sent you a notice. asked her to show some proof, puts me on hold for 10 minutes and then tells me supervisor will call back. nothing. fuck
why are they only charging $20 extra? why not $50, $100? its an arbitrary number anyway that verizon says will be put back into improving the network. fuck
