Evernote is one of the best digital note-taking apps that is available on almost all platforms including web. Almost all types of people know the value of Evernote. However, Evernote is not completely free. Obviously, you can obtain the free Evernote account, but it comes with loads of barriers those need to be lifted by purchasing a paid account.
This is where OneNote excels as this is free for everyone and every platform. Just like Evernote, you can use its competitor on Windows PC or any other platforms including web. The most interesting thing is if you are using the latest version of Windows, you can get the OneNote app as a built-in feature. That means it doesn’t even need to be installed manually. Just sign in to your OneNote account and start using it – as simple as that.
Now, if you want to drop Evernote that you have been using on Windows or anywhere and want to use OneNote, you may get problems because there is no option in Evernote to export the notes. Does that mean you may have to migrate notes from Evernote to OneNote manually? No.
