Dropbox and Evernote are OS independent…and I love that.

by Jeff Hilimire on February 19, 2013

In the past, I’ve wanted Apple or Google to acquire Dropbox and Evernote, two of my tools of choice. It’s crazy, by the way, how much I love and use these two tools.

I thought how nice it would be if the seemingly perpetually half-baked iCloud services would act more like Dropbox. And don’t get me started on how much better Evernote is than any note-taking apps out there, particularly Apple’s iOS embedded Notes app.

But now that I think about it, having these two apps separate and independent entities gives me real freedom. I can very easily switch to a new OS, new phone, new laptop, and be up and running extremely fast. Who am I kidding though, we all know I’m an Apple fanboy, but you never know, one day I might switch it up.

Now I wish that somehow my “social” identity could be unattached from a Facebook or Twitter. Almost two years ago I wrote about Diaspora, maybe they’ll figure that one out.
