Default Evernote vs AirTable

I am ready to get started with an electronic inventory for my stamps, etc. I’ve read some of the prior threads and watched a few videos...now I am overwhelmed!Any input, especially if you’ve tried both, is greatly appreciated. I am not a digital whiz😬

I like AirTable.  I'm not caught up with it, since I've been working on other projects, but it is easy-peasy to use.

Another vote for AirTable. It's much easier (and faster) than Evernote, as well as more customizable - at least, in my opinion...

Lydia (UnderstandBlue) did an excellent video on it:

I haven't tried Airtable (yet), but I thought I should speak up, since I have been a vocal Evernote fan. 

Evernote recently made some BIG changes... and they are not good.  Long-time users are ready to give it up, myself included.  I don't recommend it at all anymore.  It's truly unreal what a mess they've made with it.  Very sad.

I would love to hear from anyone who has used both Evernote and Airtable.  It looks like Airtable would be awesome for a stamp inventory... but I'm not sure how it would be for "everything else".  (I've been using Evernote to pretty much track my whole life.  I have no idea how I'm going to find the time to switch, but I think I have to.)

I've used both and, although I've only used them for stamping supplies, I still think that AirTable would work for you. It is TOTALLY customizable, so you can put in any/all information that you want. The only drawback that i could see for you is that you may have too much information to qualify for the free version. Still, I believe there are size limits on Evernote's free version, as well, so it may be fairly equal. Watch Lydia's video and snoop around the website and see what you think...

Thank you. I have watched MANY videos and read many threads. This community is generous with their time and knowledge.

I am leaning towards AirTable. I am proficient with spreadsheets and the speed of input looks good. If I reach the limit for the free version, I will take this as a sign it’s time to purge!

Thanks Sue.  I'm going to give it a try.  You're probably right about my having too much information, but I've been paying for Evernote.  If I decide Airtable is better, I'll be willing to get the paid version of it, instead.  But I'll definitely spend some time with it first.

Is the data stored on Evernote transferrable to AirTable?

There are four options listed for importing but I am only familiar with the Excel option. They do give you access to a personal support, but I didn’t need it and cannot comment.
I spent a few hours yesterday and I am so far along. The time consuming part is the images. I had trouble figuring it out... and then I noticed the search feature within the program. I wasted time trying to copy images and couldn’t get that to work.
I am super pleased with the decision to go with AirTable. It’s been easy for me to set-up and the input is a breeze.

I use AirTable for all of my inks, dies, punches, stamp, etc. Also using it to keep track of series of books I have read/purchased.

I’ve been using Airtable for about 8-9 months and love it. VERY easy to use (and I’m NOT tech-y). Super simple to set up and to add records to it.

Airtable is the bomb. I have a tutorial on it on YouTube
