I have far too many licenses for similar programs that just aren't as usable as the multi-platform options: RightNote, TreeDBNotes, Ultra Recall and many others. I'm not entirely comfortable in switching to Microsoft, Google etc, but just working on everything is just so much easier and more efficient, though I will pay for Scrivener upgrades as they come along (hoping that the Android version will arrive some year or other).I like multi-platform, Evernote does that, but it is not really (to me, so far) a Research Assistant, like I think RightNote and Scrivener might be.-Dormouse (December 03, 2017, 01:37 PM)
Can you explain a bit more of how you like the various products in multi-platform? My multi is mostly Windows PC and iOS Tablet. Are they keeping your info in the cloud, Evernote style? (Which does allow action when offline.) Is there a modest or large cost? Which one do you like the most.
I might well return to RightNote for this element, its Windows implementation I always felt was crisp and solid. I find myself working on projects were some information is in my email correspondence, some is in Linkman bookmarks, and maybe a .doc or .rtf or .pdf file or two that can be on disk or in the cloud, some may be in a Linkman or Academia.edu or Facebook conversation and other locales. I need a master research and/or writing assistant. (This is in addition to using Linoit as the visual traffic cop.)
(Then there are web programs. Does Quip, Qippa, Clibu, Nimburs, the CMS WebAsyst or other online programs ever work effectively in this manner? This is another question. I always think that the functionality will be reduced when you get to nitty-gritty stuff.)
