OneNote and OmniFocus? What about Evernote and Google Keep?

OneNote and OmniFocus. Can we compare these? What about Google Keep and Evernote.

As you know OmniFocus is a rich tool for managing your tasks with scheduling/reminder capability on Apple devices.

On the other hand, OneNote is a powerful Microsoft’s product for managing your notes.

Evernote has been around for a while and Google Keep is the new player in the game.

The purpose of this post is:

1. Urge Microsoft to look into functionality of OneNote and slightly expand it to meet the requirements of advanced users.

2. Urge Evernote to look into functionality of Evernote and slightly expand it to have scheduling and reminder capabilities.

A lot of you use Microsoft Outlook at work and at home and you might manage your tasks and to-do list within the tasks feature of Outlook. This is relatively basic way of managing your tasks. On the other hand, you are keeping all your notes in OneNote. Wouldn’t it be good if you could have everything in one tool. What I am alluding to is OneNote having scheduling features that Outlook tasks have or what OmniFocus has on Macs.

The same applies to Evernote and Evernote having scheduling/reminder capabilities.

In a nutshell, it would be good if you could tag notes in OneNote/Evernote with a due date and maybe have single screen where you can see all the notes that have due dates. This feature would make OneNote/Evernote very powerful.

What do you think?
