Readers’ Choice: Evernote

Evernote was a landslide winner, claiming nearly half the total vote. Google Keep and OneNote were essentially tied in second place. Evernote’s cross-platform availability, seamless syncing and widespread support within other apps make it a formidable contender: it’s one of our favourites, and it’s clearly one of yours too.

Editor’s Pick: OneNote

In a tough field where every app is deserving (and Evernote already has a prize), I’m singling out OneNote for a very simple reason here: its inclusion in the subscription Office 365 bundle means that it’s rather more affordable than it once was. OneNote particularly shines when you use it to organise larger-scale collections of notes.

Thanks everyone for voting! Keep checking back throughout the week for more winners.
