Soon it will be two years since I wrote this about Evernote moving to the Google Cloud. I sounded hopeful. In my head the move was just the start of the beginning of the resurgence of Evernote. Instead it has continued to stagnate. I can’t remember any new features being added – other than a few UI tweaks – and both the Mac and iOS apps remain buggy and terribly slow. Oh and the browser extension on Safari is still awful.
Right now I all my notes, stored locally on my machine, are fucking buffering.
I still use Evernote everyday. It’s still my digital brain. But man do I hate it at times.
