    I tried both Evernote and SpringPad (my review is here: http://2fatdads.com/2011/12/evernote-vs-springpad/) but in the end I went with EverNote. I never really was a OneNote user but I liked the idea.

    I find Evernote works great on my laptop (Win 7) and well enough in my browser (Chrome beta on Linux). I can’t see to work with the tables I create in the Windows client when I’m editing the same note in the browser, but otherwise I prefer web over client hands-down.

    The Android App is another story. I try and use for read-only access, but because I find editing a note never works out quite properly and I always have to in and fix it up when I get home.

    I have used Evernote for about a year. I wanted something that could give me access to my notes from an Android phone, Windows and Mac laptops and iPad. That way I can capture my thoughts wherever I am, scan in business cards (phone), jot down notes or minutes at meetings (iPad) and that’s it. They’re there for me on a laptop for distribution, sharing, incorporation into other docs, whatever.

    It’s awesome, and little improvements are happening all the time.

    Evernote is one of my “holy trinity” of personal cloud apps, all of which are (i) useable from all devices (ii) complement each other (iii) aesthetically excellent and (iv) free.
