What do you like best?

The ease of use and a simple and clean layout make Alternote an almost mandatory choice for every iOS user.

The competitive price for a useful and simple app also makes it even more interesting.

It is also compatible with the most popular Evernote and makes up for some deficiencies of its rival, which is a good thing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Undoubtedly, the availability only on iOS is a bit limited, although, basically, those who use iOS products tend to use only those, so it may not be such a significant problem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend anyone who wants to create a similar program to take a cue from Alternote, because it's really well done. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has made many operations easier that other competitor programs make more cumbersome.

The ease of use for this type of program and the resulting dynamism is not an element to be underestimated. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Using Alternates does however not infer the need to abandon the normal Evernote ecosystem.I immediately fell in love with the interface and user experience, and found that filing notes and similarly browsing notebooks was a particularly pleasant experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Formatting tools also are hidden and are not so easy to find. Makes it a bit user unfriendly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This software product supports Markdown. This functionality is convenient for those who used to write in Markdown. You won’t face any difficulties with pasting a Markdown text in one doc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The interface is clear and simple. Furthermore, it is not green anymore. Now, this is a white rectangle with blue highlights. Though at a glance it is too plain, it comprises a variety of powerful Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Find your notes in a super software, edit and produces notes in a smart way. Also the dark mode is a nice feature. The tab bar is effective, sorting by tags is a helpful tool. Also links to homepages are supported. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Reading documents is easy, the sorting with tags could be better. You have diferent options but just with colours. So important is red color, thats good but in this topic I wanted to sort again, unfortunately thats not possible. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reading and saving the important notes. Sharing notes and lists with others. This is a good tool for mac-users, the design is clear and helps to have a overview of different notes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The interface is wonderful. Fully adapted to Yosemite's design guides, it shows us everything just as lovers of the simple and effective we want. A menu of shortcuts and the note on which we write. Nothing else. No icons, banners, no distractions. It also includes some functions that can be helpful without being intrusive such as label coloring.

What I like most is that everything is accessible through the first panel on the left, you don't need to open sections like in the Evernote application. Alternote works like a tree view, and it's great.

The notes can be displayed in a "full" or "compact" mode. Full shows some written text beyond the title or first line, but both show all relevant information. Personally, I am a fan of the compact mode. There is access to favorites, but it is exclusive to Alternote. Marking a favorite has no effect on other Evernote applications, nor is it related to its "shortcuts". Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If you copy and paste a text in Markdown it will look like this, as in the Evernote application. But by writing you transform some elements of Markdown to rich text (which is what Evernote uses). What can cause gibberish if you plan to publish that Markdown for example. If you use it only in the notes it will serve as a fantastic shortcut.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Evernote is my favorite service for storing notes and I use it daily, but it has always bothered me to use its Mac application. Too many options, functions, ads, many seconds spent to do simple things. Alternote solves it brilliantly for my job site, since being a Simple Note style editor has a good direct synchronization to my Evernote account. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I absolutely love the interface of alternote. It is very easy and intuitive to use. It is not overcomplicated and it allows me to complete all my note taking tasks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Lack of color to have a fully immersive experience that can catch my attention right away which would also help identify functionalities at first sight. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Better note taking experience and less clutter with paper. It is a more economic option than evernote. I can see great potential if this software is being improved in the right direction. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

One of the things that attracted me to this application is its design, very simple but with the necessary features to highlight the truly important, one of the functions allows you to hide the sidebar, compacting the information in a single line, has night mode, consolidates in a list the pending tasks to be executed, selects the information that you wish to synchronize, is available only in iOS, integrates very well with evernote Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is available only for iOS, it does not have many integrations with other applications Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I managed to find an application to carry out my tasks during a time that worked perfectly with iOS, the way it was designed, I dynamized all my weekly work during the three months I was out of the country in a course in Finland, it was wonderful to have a tool that I support from the distance to take the work that even being outside I had to carry out from a distance Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that it’s a simple way to get my thoughts on paper and create separate folders of notes. I can make notes in numerical order and come back to them later in an organized way without papers stacked on my desk everywhere. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is a bit more expensive than other similar applications but it merges well with Evernote. Can’t use this on PC, but that’s a minor inconvenience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used to use sticky notes and paper to organize student feedback and throw them out weekly. Alternote let’s me keep my feedback reports organized and I can finish writing up my reports on the go if needed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The simple and clean interface and the ability to sync with Evernote. The low price, too. Alternote 2.0 promises full markdown support, something that the official Evernote client is missing, and drags users towards competing products, like LeaNote. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is no much to dislike, as the app is simple and polished. But their site states since 2015 that Alternote 2.0, with full Markdown syntax, including code snippets and tables, and an iOS version are imminent, but there is still no trace of them. At the moment the lack of mobile app is a serious drawback, compared to the ubiquitous original Evernote client. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Since it allows to spare on Evernote paid plans, the investment in buying Alternote licences is almost immediately paid off. Moreover, the interface is in my opinion far better than that of the official Evernote client. The addition of full markdown support and iOS clients, that should come in the future would bring this piece of software far ahead the official Evernote client. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

First, Alternote is a great app by itself, and it is a real pleasure to write in its clean and distraction-free environment. Secondly, it syncs with Evernote. Since Evernote restricted the free account to the use of just two Evernote clients, the use of Alternote on desktop computers allows to use the two official clients just on the mobile devices – an iPhone and and iPad, for example – while the desktop machines can sync through Alternote, without the need to subscribe to a paid Evernote plan.
