I think the new Notes.app is a giant step in the right direction, and Evernote need the competition to make sure that they make their app good again. But I’m sticking with my current nvALT setup for a while, at least until I see the thing Brett Terpstra is working on to replace it. This is why:
Dropbox sync is in my experience faster and more stable than iCloud; and I’m more confident in how to manage conflicts etc there.
I have other ways to deal with the extra stuff Notes.app brings to the table, like for example TaskPaper.
At least 90% of my notes are just a lot or a little text, nvALT and iOS text editors are way better at searching for and managing that than the notes app; and I love Markdown.
I don’t want something that is as important as my notes to be on a yearly update cycle.
