Evernote vs Dropbox
For several years now I have used Dropbox for my reference files and project support material. Most of these are plain text files that I edit on my Mac, iPhone and iPad. I also have various other file formats, Excel files, pdfs, etc. I'm intrigued by Evernote however and am considering switching to this tool. I like the idea of organizing things with tags. I also like the idea of being able to have richer formatting available than just plain text files give me. For example, throwing in an image in a file I'm working on. It sounds like Evernote would be great for things like that.
I have a couple of things that are stopping me however.
1) I like the fact that my Dropbox files are not dependent on the Dropbox service being around forever. Dropbox goes out of business, I still have all my files sitting on my HD.
2) My data isn't locked into a proprietary database, so if I decide to move to another better service, there is nothing stopping me.
Are the features of Evernote good enough to overcome these two issues?
