Ask DN: Evernote replacement?

    I'm on the same page here. Evernote is the new Photoshop. It tries too hard to be too much. It became bloated and annoyingly slow — on iOS and on OS X at least.

    The real problem is: Evernote is a walled garden, since there is no way to export your notes. I mean, I have at least 5,000 and some os them are pretty important. Once I leave Evernote, am I supposed to pretend these notes don't exist?

    I've also use Notational Velocity sporadically for some very quick text-only notes... but it's just too simple.

    I tried Simplenote once but I run into a lot of sync problems. That made me a little worried and I decided to not use it anymore.
