There’s an ongoing discussion about what the best note taking software out there is. Of course, the two main contenders are Microsoft’s OneNote and Evernote. While Evernote was originally more popular, mainly due of its cross-platform compatibility, Microsoft has improved OneNote a lot over the course of a year. As such, it’s now difficult to say which is better.

Ever since Microsoft introduced some radical changes to OneNote, including improved cross-platform compatibility, there have been users who were willing to switch from Evernote to Microsoft’s app. While that won’t be a problem for users who don’t take a lot of notes, those who have a lot of notes stored in Evernote might find it difficult to change apps.

Transfer all notes from Evernote to OneNote with Evernote Importer

Luckily for those users, Microsoft has a solution. The company recently introduced a tool which makes it easy to transfer all Evernote notes to OneDrive. The tool is called Evernote Importer and while it’s only available on Windows for now, Microsoft has promised it will arrive for the Mac very soon.

To run Evernote Importer, users need a computer running Windows 7 or later. Once all notes are imported from Evernote, they’ll sync across all devices you’re using OneNote on (Mac, iOS, Android, Windows). If you’re using Windows 10, it is recommended to have the Evernote Windows 10 app installed for a smoother sync process.

Since both Evernote and OneNote are present in the Store, it might be hard for some users to decide which app is better. But if you’re using a portable Microsoft device, like a tablet or a 2-in-1, OneNote is definitely a better solution due to its better sync options and stylus support.  s
