X1 Needs to Search Evernote

I've looked through the discussions here at how many times people have asked over the years when X1 will have the ability to search Evernote accounts but found no real answer -- or did I miss it after all?

I cannot emphasize enough how valuable that ability would be to me. I have used X1 for years and recommend it constantly, but I also use Evernote constantly. As part of a genealogy research team we keep resources in Evernote I do not keep on my local machine. Thus I am often forced to do two searches rather than just going to X1 as would be my overwhelming preference.

Is that going to happen? If so, when?

Thanks!

Interesting that this plea comes a day after someone else asked for OneNote to be added to the X1 repertoire.

Both are widely used in the corporate world that seems to be X1's main market.

We could pile on the pressure if we could find rival software that can handle Evernote.

Copernic does OneNote, but no mention of EverNote.

By the way, Copernic also does Thunderbird and eBooks, which also come up here from time to time.

X1,

It's now over a year since I posted that question, but I have seen no response from X1. Does the company ever plan to include the ability to search my Evernote account using XI Search? I really need it to do so.

Thanks again.

Are there any third party search engines that can handle Evernote? Or does it have a proprietary format that locks out other code writers?

I can't find any obvious candidates.

Without that we are all whistling in the wind.

I wonder if it's possible to take a page from Copernic's playbook---that is, to pay for expanded search sources. Perhaps have OneNote, EverNote, etc. searches be paid add-ons to baseline X1.

I wouldn't mind paying a bit more for additional data sources that can be searched.

My 2 cents only.
