This is a good analysis of the problem faced by developers. The Evernote management has always been in a state of deep confusion about this question. When they made the transition years ago from Windows-only to a ubiquitious app, they deliberately stripped Evernote of much of its functionality. I remember that Libin then proclaimed that he didn’t much care for power users and was quite happy to have just the “lazy slobs” of the world as his customers. Nevertheless, Evernote has been gradually adding sophisticated features ever since (including some that had been earlier thrown overboard), and nowadays it is struggling to move into the very demanding business world. At the same time, there are still odd little spasms of oversimplification: the latest Evernote updates often conceal menus and display enormous expanses of blank screen, supposedly to make it more user-friendly.

If all developers are faced with this dilemma, as you suggest, then Evernote is the supreme example of an interesting (and potentially very powerful) piece of software trapped in an endless identity crisis.

Hi Neville.

Will there also be a Mac desktop app?

Thanks, Franz
(who’d love to kiss EN goodbye but needs a reasonable web clipping/note storing application that allows sharing data on Windows PCs an Macs)

Hi Franz,
It is a bit early to say for sure, but probably. You can of course use Clibu now on your Mac, Windows and Linux PC’s using Chrome or Firefox. Safari should also work fine, however I’m not testing against Safari at this time.

Note however that the Clibu Web Clipper is only available for Chrome at present.

Thanks, Neville.

To be sure I understand: Do I need internet access when using Clibu through Firefox or Chrome on my Mac? That would not be a solution for me. I want my data locally, from time to time I go to places where I have no internet access. And I want to be able to work there.

Hi Franz,
At present you need Internet access, however in future we intend to have a version you can use off-line. See the a,b,c items in my very first post.
