The website at least looks impressive, but I wasn’t willing to install it.
It seems to require “cloud” connection which, here in China, seems ridiculous.
Firstly, the internet is incredibly slow and unreliable much of the time.
Secondly, I would not want ANY of my data stored on a server in China. You have no idea if the state has demanded some ‘backdoor’ access to all data on their server.
The VIP rates are really crazily high- obviously aimed at cashing-in on the well-heeled businesses in China who don’t known about the plethora of good note-taking and PIM applications that already exist.
It might look good, and offer some good features, but I’d stay far away from it.
This is not to say that developers in mainland China can’t produce a trustworthy product. They can, and MyBase is a very good example of an excellent product with a long history and international user base.
