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.
- 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).
So why choose! Use both at what they are best.
Until the next time, happy evernoting!
