Frequently Asked Questions
Does Alternote support iCloud or Dropbox?
We’re delivering stable smooth experience to our users. That’s why we don’t want to defocus on support of different platforms. Alternote is created exclusively for Evernote.
Is there an iOS version?
We do want to bring clutter-free and elegant solution to iPhones and iPads as well. We’re already working on the companion app and planning to release it in 2016.
Any support for Markdown?
For now Alternote expands some of Markdown entities to rich text. We’re planning to support full Markdown syntax, including code snippets and tables, in version 2.0.
What about reminders, work chat and presentation mode?
We are not going to duplicate all of existing Evernote features, as we want to keep Alternote an elegant app for crafting texts. But we‘ll introduce some new ;-)
Why my Evernote shortcuts are not available in Alternote?
Unfortunately Evernote doesn’t allow developers to access Shortcuts yet, so we implemented own starred notes. As soon as Evernote grants access to the API, we’ll be the first to support it.
Can I use local Evernote notebooks?
Your local notebooks are not synced to Evernote cloud service. That’s why third-party applications cannot access them via public interface.
