Can’t entirely agree with you, Paul. Look at DayOne for iOS and Mac… almost identical interface. Look at Scrivener for Mac and PC (and soon iOS). Look at Notebooks for iOS, Mac and PC. Look at TheBrain.

There are naturally going to be some differences, but with Evernote its like using different apps altogether. At least that’s how it feels to me.
