Bubble Browser is a clean, visual (and fun!) way to explore your Evernote memories.
Tags, notebooks and dates are presented as colorful bubbles to show what's the most important in every given context. You can see how often particular tag was used at a glance and easily navigate back through the history of your notes. In short - the bigger a bubble is, the more stuff is inside.
Version 2.0 was re-engineered from the ground up to be FAST and to provide completely seamless experience. It also introduces new features, including TEXT SEARCH, TYPEAHEAD SUGGESTIONS and PERSPECTIVES, among others. And, oh yeah, it’s HANDSOME.
Bubble Browser was created by Macoscope for Evernote Devcup 2012 competition.
Five pillars of Bubble Browser awesomeness:
VISUAL DATA REPRESENTATION: allows faster information consumption, presenting data sets as shapes is more natural than dealing with raw numbers,
SMART SEARCH METHODS: traditional data exploration methods are dull and might be ineffective. Delivering results in a visual way yields far more interesting and gratifying outcomes,
SELF-EXPLORATION: ability to discover your own patterns related to processes of information storing and memorization,
IMMEDIATE DATA ACCESS: ability to quickly filter your information by intersecting tags, notebooks and dates criteria,
FOCUS ON A PIECE OF INFORMATION: allowing you to see your data in a specific context, which may reveal new relationships between your notes and tags.
Still with me? To tell you the truth, Bubble Browser is also extremely FUN TO USE. But don’t tell anyone. Shhh...
Hotfix for the app expiration problem

Great start - Its a great Evernote top level visualizer. If you could also develop an interactive mindmap view it would make it precious (see Mohio). Interactive meaning that you could move the nodes around and it would update the relationships into your evernote structure. Another feature would be to ad a time dimension to this so you could travel timemachine style and only see the notes with reminders at that date or a bubble lay out of notes that have reminders for the week, month.
Gimmick, not useful - I was curious if this app would help me make better sense of documents related to common themes in my notes. it didn’t. e.g., I have a lot of notes related to a project on neuropathic pain. other than a vaguely interesting cluster by date, the app offered nothing to help me find notes within the topic of interest. the UI is complex, but there is also a lot of white space where useful information could be. not a fan. I want a refund.

I love this app!!! - Come back creators and support this app!!! It is the best interface for evernote ever! It is a data visualization of the organization of your evernote notes using bubbles, similar to a bubble chart but more loosely structured. I simply love this app. I think if I had started using this app when I started using evernote, I would have gotten an incredible amount of usage and organization out of evernote instead of using it to digitally hoard. What a fantastic app that enables you to think about your data creatively.
2 out of 3 - Its prett cool, but the Date Perspective could use a re think. If I am looking at my notes by date, I really don’t want a bunch of Bubbles floating around. I want something that has a relationship to time. There should be some order to it. Like a timeline. But other perspectives are quite good :-)
Incredible if you have alot of notes. The potential is worth the price of admission alone - Even if you only have a few hundred or 4000+, this can provide a new visual perspective on how things are organized. Would love to see alternate view options for the middle note column and the ability to actually edit the notes from within Bubble Browser with the changes synced back to Evernote. Come to think of it, this is worthy of Evernote acquiring outright.
Please update the mac version - It needs an update. The iPad version works beatifully. I recommend any Evernote power users to use this browser. I was about it trash Evernote before I figured out about Bubble Browser.
Disappointing relative to iPad version - The iPad version shows notebooks, tags and dates together (a color for each type). That provides a great way to visualize connections. This MacOS version does not. I may just uninstall it. The response is slow, even though the whole database is on disk. The iPad app on Wi-Fi is faster and better. Go figure.
