I’ve been playing around with EverNote’s latest version and it’s not bad. A very good effort. But why isn’t ‘offline’ software following the tag revolution and allowing users to assign categories on the fly?
EverNote makes much of its getting away from folder hierarchies, and that’s great. But the revolution is only half finished. If you want to add a category you still have to open a dialog box, and assign it to a root folder or subfolder or whatever. I would love to just be able add a tag in the same way I can add a tag to del.icio.us or flickr, or Backpack. Surely this is easy enough to implement?
Or is there another tool out there, outliner or any other note-taking application, that has picked up the tagging baton and run with it for us folks who don’t always want to store and fiddle with our information online. I recall the early version of Enfish Tracker would allow you to add tags to files to improve searching, and ExplorerPlus lets you add notes to files, but neither of these are easy or complete solutions.
