I love Evernote because it allows me to save files without the need to upload and download. Once a file is there, it's as easy as it can be.
What I don't like about evernote is that:
1. It requires payment and is not open-source.
2. It won't search for keywords "inside the document"
3. Initial document creation such as Excel still must be done in the traditional sense and the file then 'moved' to Evernote once it is created.
I have a shared hosting at hostgator with shell access but no ability to reboot. Is there anything open-source, that I can can use like Evernote. Being able to 'directly' edit a file without upload/download is imperative.
