Saved me a boatload of time (4 stars)
I’m very happy with this find. I recently decided to cancel my backpack acct and transfer all of my 50+ pages to evernote. The manual process was killing me so I decided to try this app. I’m happy to report that out of the 50 or so pages I transferred, I only had one error (only have the page transferred). I’m guessing this little app saved me about 3+ hours. In my case, it was a one time use app since I don’t plan on creating or transferring over any new backpack pages.. but from a time-value standpoint… it was totally worth the $12.99. Oh and as an extra bonus, I received almost an immediate response from the developer when sent in a support email for the 1 page I was having trouble with. Great support!

1 What’s the most unique, useful feature of your product?
I think the most unique feature is the main feature of the product. If imports your Backpack data into Evernote.
2 Why did you create this product? or What need were you trying to satisfy?
37signals hasn’t shown Backpack a lot of love lately. In face, they’ve stopped taking new users. I thought there would be a demand to move that data to something else. Evernote seemed like it would be a popular target. Plus Evernote had this API and a contest as well.
3 What is most interesting to you about developing for the Mac platform.
I love the Cocoa APIs. I’ve been a fan of them since the NeXT days. I always wanted to use them and I finally had a chance when Apple bought NeXT. They are well designed and make you very productive.
4 What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product?
Basically, just look at how easy it is to move your data from Backpack to Evernote. As one customer said, it will save you a boat load of time.
6 What’s your favorite Mac product out there from another developer? Why?
I think I would have to say Things from Cultured Code. It looks great and it just works. Especially their cloud syncing they just released.
7 What features would you like to add to your product in the future?
I would like to add support for importing data into Evernote from other sources such as Basecamp and any other web service that makes sense. That’s something I’m waiting for feedback from potential customers.
