I had about 15 minutes to play around with this today, just long enough to notice that there’s no option to not share certain notes with the mobile version of Evernote. Pretty much, once you decide to sync with the mobile version (Actually, it’s turned on by default), all your data goes up to Evernote’s servers.
So, while the fact that it syncs online and offline solves one of my issues with my current setup, it doesn’t help in regards to data I want, or need, to keep off their server.
In other words, it might make for a good replacement for Google Notebook, by offering similar functionality and adding the ability to access your notes when you are offline, albeit the only computer you could use offline would be the one with Evernote installed.
On the other hand, as I said earlier if Google Notebook got hooked up to Google Gears, that would eliminate the advantage. Perhaps, though, I’ll find more Evernote features that make it worthwhile when I have more than 15 minutes to experiment.
I seem to have some invites to the mobile beta, at least I think that’s what they’re for. If you’re interested in one drop me an email at mike.mcbride at that other Google service that I’ve given my life to. 😉
