Privacy tip #1 - Evernote alternative

The first privacy tip! A very timely tip for Evernote users. Evernote, the freemium note taking app, wrote in their Privacy Policy that employees will be allowed to read the notes in your account. Sounds great, doesn't it?

All your personal stories, amazing concepts, passwords (bad idea anyway, please use something like 1Password!) will be visible for a select group within the Evernote team.

I've stopped using Evernote a long time ago, but I remembered my old notes where still there. So be smart, remove your notes and look for a better alternative.

UPDATE 2016-12-17: Evernote has withdrawn their bizarre changes thanks to the massive social media attention.
UPDATE 2017-02-02: Updated the list of alternatives.
