We recently wrote an in-depth comparison of Evernote vs. OneNote and concluded that both are great, but are each useful for different people in different circumstances. Use the one you feel most comfortable using.
Why would anyone prefer OneNote? Because notes are quick and easy to take, it has lots of unique features you can’t find elsewhere, you get note templates that make organization easier, but most of all, OneNote is absolutely free for all users.
If you’re an Evernote user who wants to switch to OneNote but can’t due to the amount of notes you’ve built up in Evernote, then we have some good news for you: Microsoft has finally released a OneNote Importer tool.
The OneNote Importer is really easy to use. All you need is to have both Evernote and OneNote installed on the same computer, then download and run the tool. You’ll be asked to choose which notebooks you want to import and which OneNote account you want them imported into.
As of now, the OneNote Importer is only available for Windows 7 or later, but Microsoft has promised a Mac version of the tool within the next few months, so keep an eye out for that if you’re a Mac user.
Is this tool enough to convince you to switch from Evernote to OneNote? What do you like about OneNote? Or what do you prefer about Evernote? Let us know in the comments below!
