I didn't see Trunk Notes mentioned in this thread.  I'm guessing you've seen and tried that one, too, but if not:

I can't speak to the "magic" part there (the quote is from RA Parker), but I did want to mention Trunk Notes because, like you, Mr. Parker tried EverNote and is didn't really work for him.  For $5, Trunk Notes might be worth a go (or not). [shrugs]
