FYI 40% offer still available, but you need to "find" it. I downloaded the Windows desktop app. I had already installed app on two devices, so it prompted me to unpair one device - or get 40% off my yearly subscription. 40% off is only for the first year I believe, unfortunately.
I'd more likely use Onenote for quick notes. I don't find the search function of GD to be a drawback.
How do you find using GDrive for quick notes? I did try it as my main tool for a while, but found that not being able to search quickly, view note text quickly and move between notes a show stopper. Am I missing a trick?
This is how all subscriptions work surely? Netflix did the same, it's our responsibility to be aware of what our outgoing are. I have a Google Calendar where I input all my subscription dates from EN, to Netflix, to car insurance. Then you can set default reminders. What did you want? Them to stop the subscription and you lose the Pro/Premium features that you had originally requested?
Experiences do differ greatly. My issues with OneNote are: * Many sync issues that it can't self resolve * Importing a PDF or PPTX inserts a print out which is not effectively searchable. Despite PPTX and OneNote both being Microsoft products. * Freeform text boxes result in side scrolling when I switch between different devices * No PDF annotation option. Only image insert as above with text overlay. But if you delete page 3, page 4-x don't move up with their annotations, leaving big gaps. I do wish it was better in these areas, everyone likes free software. These are not really comparable, but can achieve the same goal, if that goal is more simple notes. Evernote sits between Keep and GDrive. The instant nature of EN searching, viewing and switching notes trumps GDrive. The breadth of size, formatting, inserts trumps Keep. Also since Google Assistant no longer "add bacon to my shopping list" uses Keep, it's use is getting less and less.
