On the surface, TagSpaces looks like just an excellent Evernote alternative, but let me go further to add that it does a more advanced job than Evernote.

In short, I don’t think the Evernote team is moving in the direction of TagSpaces is because in as much as TagSpaces can somehow replace Evernote, but Evernote cannot replace TagSpaces – and that’s fine; they are different applications. But I wouldn’t be surprised if TagSpaces wins an award or two in the productivity section.

If you haven’t tried TagSpaces then you should, and don’t forget to return to share your experience with it in the comments section below.
