“The Verge has reported that Microsoft is planning on releasing OneNote for the Mac. While Evernote is certainly a target, I think there’s more to the story than that,” Lou Miranda blogs.
“There are also rumors of iOS 8 containing a note-taking application. How this app differs from the built-in iOS Notes app is not clear, but it may have a lot to do with this acquisition by Apple: Catch,” Miranda writes. “Catch is pointed out to be an Evernote competitor, but the article above notes that Catch had an enterprise component that even Apple employees used.”
Miranda writes, “With updates to iWork coming over the next couple of years–and the iWork apps sharing the same functionality across iOS and OS X – I think it’s pretty clear that Catch will be turned into more of a OneNote competitor than an Evernote competitor (or, of course, a competitor to both).”
