Sorry Evernote

Sorry Evernote, but I've tried and tried to see how I can best use your services.

You even had an app for my phone with a nifty widget.

But still, I couldn't quite figure it out.  You had desktop apps, bookmarklets, chrome extension, and even windows gadgets.  Everything I like about an aggregator app, you were everywhere.  However, still couldn't quite figure it out.

What really drilled the nail in your coffin was that now Google Docs has an official Android app now.  (if you want you can read my review here)

I guess because I'm so enmeshed with Google, it was hard utilizing a similar service outside.

People say you're good, so maybe I should keep at it with you - but just not feeling it.  If it helps, I don't quite get OneNote either.

People... should I give Evernote another shot?  Someone properly explain it to me with their best practices... googling hasn't turned up much more than the typical and I think the same results can be achieved with another service I currently use for everything.
