Very often I see people on Twitter asking if they should use Evernote or Dropbox which is a weird question for me as I think they really complement each other really well. Let me explain.
Dropbox is great to store documents and to have them available anywhere as well as having many people accessing them. It’s your hardrive in the cloud.
Evernote is great at storing and sharing information you can access from anywhere with very powerful tools to search this information (via notebooks, tagging or using the internal search engine). Evernote is your memory in the cloud.
Dropbox stores documents when Evernote stores information. They complement each other very well
To store all your business cards pictures, Evernote is going to shine because of its OCR feature.
To store a big 150Mb Powerpoint file and access it and share with other people, Dropbox is your best option.
Remember that a note in Evernote is 50Mb max when Premium (25 Mb when Free).
Here is another interview done at LeWeb, an Internet conference which took place in Paris from the 7th to the 9th of December 2011. I had the pleasure to meet with Joseph Tame (@tamegoeswild – josephta.me) who was a speaker at the conference and who will share the use he has for Evernote in all his crazy adventures around running.
If you are a geek and into Apple stuff, you probably saw the image below when Steve Jobs died in 2011, Joseph did that.
Here is the YouTube video recording of Joseph keynote during LeWeb, it’s really worth watching:
As a marathon runner and über-geek myself it was very cool for me to chat with Joseph.
