The best simple list-making app for iPhone, iPad, and Mac »

The best simple list-making app for iPhone, iPad, and Mac

Our goal at The Sweet Setup is to help you find the best apps for your Mac, iPad, and iPhone. We review, research, test, try, and then recommend only the best apps so you can find what you’re looking for. One aspect of our process is continually looking at our existing reviews to make sure our “pick” remains the best. We watch updates and explore new apps in order to update reviews, or pick a new winner (when necessary).

The simple list category is a focused one. We aren’t looking for a GTD app (we have that) or something focused on shared lists for shopping (we have that). This is for simple lists.

MacStories: Evernote 8 — A review and comparison with Apple Notes »

A couple week ago, Evernote released version 8. For a couple years now (or longer), Evernote has been losing the enthusiasm of some users due to the additional features and ads that were introduced into the product. With this new version, it’s making people ask if Evernote is trying to turn that perception around.

Ryan Christoffel, of MacStories, wrote an in-depth review of the new Evernote, and compared it heavily to Notes. It’s a really helpful perspective on the app since a lot of people migrated to Notes after the new version was unveiled in iOS 9. Still, the grass is always greener on the other side, and Evernote has shown that it wants to stay competitive in the note-taking world. Like Ryan says, they definitely have our attention now.
