Import Evernote Content to OneNote

I’m quite irked about Evernote’s new privacy policy, which states that their employees can read your stuff. A lot of people are recommending OneNote, which I find quite ugly, but I’m going to try it out.

Microsoft makes this easy with an importer that pulls all your Evernote content and uploads it to OneNote. I’m running the importer now – it’ll take a while – and I’ll post again if it doesn’t work. But it might be worth trying, if you’re pissed off at Evernote.

Is it just a coincidence that the Evernote privacy policy takes effect just a few days after the new President takes office in the US…?

  1. I had a look at OneNote before, when Evernote introduced the number of devices limit. I wasn’t keen on the look of it, but the main lack (on the Mac) is no tags. I haven’t been able to come up with a way of implementing some sort of tagging equivalent so far 🙁 and I haven’t found anything else that might serve as an Evernote replacement either.

    I am appalled at the willingness of businesses to knuckle under to government demands to provide information that ought to remain private, regardless of who’s in office.,

  7. Well, it looks like Evernote have had second thoughts 😀
    In the meantime I’m trying out Bear. It’s a bit light on features at the moment and not free if you want to sync, but IT HAS TAGS! And importing from EN (a notebook at a time) is easy-peasy 🙂

    • Yes, the outcry led to Evernote realizing that what they wanted to do was detrimental to their customers’ trust. I sort of like Bear, but I’m not going to commit to something like that. I don’t trust it will be around long enough.
