What product do you no longer use, because it's not as good as it once was/could be?

Could be a product you were really passionate about, but something changed... (rival, update, price etc)

    I've been a long-time fan of Evernote, but a few months ago I got bored with it because I felt like I wasn't getting what I wanted out it. I used it mainly for notes, and it did the job well, but something was missing. So I've searched around and started trying out this app called NoteLedge that seemed to fit my note-taking style better, so I've made the switch from Evernote to NoteLedge and haven't had any regrets so far. I think this new app has higher usability, it's more intuitive and I enjoy sketching in it (on my iPad), making notes and saving recipes. I have it both on my phone and my tablet, all my files are synced and it helps me stay organized and productive, which is always a good thing.

    I was a long time user of Evernote, but last year I started looking for something a bit more creative, and stumbled upon NoteLedge that I mainly use for journaling and sketching. I love how easy and fun it is, and I'm looking forward to it every day.
  2. Ok, to be honest; I only use it a few times a week. But NO LONGER on a daily basis and certainly not several times a day. Like how i used to. Facebook does not interest me anymore. I haven't posted anything in a few months. And I notice the same feeling among many of friends and family. More and more friends have even disabled their account. Only those who have their own company really share a regular post. I think people found better and more private ways to share their life amongst others.

    Aaah, back in the days! Is anyone still using this..? With Facebook and Whatsapp, I really wouldn't know why I would need MSN anymore.

    I've always been a huge fan of Sublime, it was so freaking fast. But I've learned vim, and once you go vim you rarely go back.

    It's a funny thing really. Evernote was supposed to do something amazing - taking note, journaling, and save articles from web sites. However, Bear has taken over my note-taking, Day One has taken over my journaling and Instapaper/Pocket has taken over my article saving. The one-app-trumps-all model is not working in this case, at least not for me. Evernote is down.

    It's just too much now. Also the Mac App is really pretty crummy... I much prefer the web experience, or the Windows app. Regardless, it's too bloated to be the vital app it once was.

    Used to be a big fan of Photoshop, but ever since Sketch came along I never looked back. I think it's mostly because of the bloat.

    You’ll probably never be bored again.

    I signed up onto Tumblr, I think, back when it was still in beta circa 2007. It was really cool at the time and there was a nice community of connected users. There were good iterations of the site. I vividly remember the Dashboard getting easier and better with each change for a period of time. But then they just stopped iterating, and if they did then the change was terrible. I had gone from checking my dashboard multiple times a day to checking it once a day to once a week, and now I check my dashboard, if at all, about once every few weeks. I think both the mobile and browser experience are equally bad for different reasons. The web should be delightful and I just won't use something if I constantly feel frustrated.
