I've decided to move form evernote to PB and I have about a thousand of notes in evernote currently. I delete hundrends of notes weekly and everything I keep is important and tagged really well.
Would be great to have the option to import notes from evernote. I'm going to use the same structure in PB anyway + connect some notes with jump thoughts.
Both evernote and PB are actually extremely similar tools. PB is much closer to evernote than to some mind mapping software imo. The biggest difference is basically the visual interface and the ability to connect notes/thoughts with jump links.
I am going to use PB for everything, as a complete GTD tool with actions and projects and filtering Next Actions by multiple criteria (Area of Focus, Context, Time, Energy) aswell as for non actionable project support material and as a complete genereal reference material storage and so on and everything is connected.
So instead of using 2 tools: Evernote for non actionable stuff and a dedicated GTD app for actionable stuff I'm going to keep everything in one tool. I've been thinking about this really hard and I've been comparing pros and cons and testing things and eventually decided to just move to PB completely. Even though a dedicated GTD app might be better because of some its dedicated GTD ui features, PB still has all the functionality and the pros outweight the cons overall. For me it's the best option. I can actually even use Evernote for everything(exactly the same functionality) if I had to but it's only going to decrease my productivity because the interface is just not really designed for that.
I do mostly knowledge work and I have to keep track of thousands of things (literally) and with PB I'm just faster. I really need a complete electronic brain. PB just makes perfect sense. I used to naturally do mind maps and flow charts to connect pieces of information from projects prior to PB and I'm still going to use additional software for some really specific flow charts and mind maps.
PB is just easier to navigate and search and a more advanced/flexible tool overall. The ability to connect everything speeds up the workflow.
It just feels much more natural. However it might be too powerful/advanced for some people but for me it's the best option.
Even though the reports tool interface could be improved the functutionality allows to do anything.
I'm still going to use evernote but only as an additional inbox because it's just very useful for quick capture of information from the web, it's much better than PB at this.
Hopefully PB will get a good webclipper but using Evernote as an additional inbox is perfectly fine for me because once the information is processed it goes to PB anyway.
Also I actually have a lot of things to ask and discuss about PB, I've been using it only for a week so far (very very heavily) and I really got into it
PB is a very flexible tool and it's not designed specifically for GTD so you have to know what you are doing, using it for everything is not going to work for everyone(maybe even most) but for me it is the best solution.
