Microsoft has made an interesting move as they try to reach out to Evernote users and urge them to switch to OneNote. Microsoft recently released the OneNote Importer tool that will bring in all your Evernote content and give you an easy transition into Microsoft OneNote, according to DigitalTrends. Evernote is reportedly having a tough time with its note-taking service and to make it even harder of the company, Microsoft is taking advantage of its delicate position as they offer an easy switch to OneNote, Engadget reported.
?OneNote and Evernote are similar in many ways, but we think you?ll appreciate OneNote has to offer,? senior product manager of OneNote Vijay Sharma for the OneNote team wrote in a Microsoft blog, ?… including a free-form canvas where you can mix text, images, documents, handwriting, audio, video and more; free offline access; and unlimited monthly uploads.?
Microsoft, apparently, made the move after ?they heard from Evernote fans who acknowledge OneNote?s appeal but are hesitant to make the switch due to the fact that all their ideas and information reside in Evernote.?
The OneNote Importer Tool is available for any PC running Windows 7 or later, with the Mac version to follow, according to the Verge. For users who aren?t keen on the OneNote design and features, DigitalTrends shared that OneNote director of product management Darren Austin told PCWorld that the note-taking service may get a new look in the future. ?I do think that in the long term, as we think about where OneNote goes, not prescribing a particular organizational structure is something that we?re looking at,? he said. ?Because we do think that tools should conform to the way users want to work.?
