Notions different visualizations techniques make the content easier to grasp and give you a more natural way to find what you are looking for and understand the context of the entry.
The list view, for example, can be extremely beneficial when looking for a specific task while a Board view would show you what jobs are currently in progress and which ones are already completed.
This makes Notion very unique & modular. Unlike many other alternatives, it is always in sync and up to date, change an entry on your mobile app, and it’s instantly updated on all of your other devices which makes realtime collaboration a breeze.
Evernote on the other side is a long term Beast in that space that comes with countless features for free. Hard to beat in terms of advanced niche features, from OCR document scanning & content-based searching to in-app audio notes which are not supported in by many other alternatives so far.
The only drawback I have found in the six months of extensive usage is the always-online mode. You won’t be able to add notes to Notion without any internet connection, which is significant for many people.
I think that Notion is the single best tool for Notetaking, realtime collaboration, Task, Project & Life Management & will happily handle anything you throw at it.
Furthermore, the best thing about Notion, it is now Free, forever.
