Tusk Review, A Cross-Platform Evernote Alternative

Tusk is a cross platform electron based Evernote alternative, so you can install it on Linux, Windows and Mac. Installing also very simple all you need is to download the package that right for you from the Github. About the interface, Tusk such as the website version of Evernote added with menu bar as desktop application.

The most uncomfortable thing is you can not read your note for offline viewing. Its frustrating as if you are offline it will show a blank screen. If you want a capability to read Evernote offline, you can switch Tusk into NixNote2 but the interface is standard.

We have compared to another Evernote alternative on Linux and we found that we haven’t seen anything special about Tusk. This main features are the extra theme options it provides its users and probably it’s passion for minimalist design.
