    Does anyone else prefer to use the stock iOS apps (calendar, mail, notes, reminders) over replacement apps? I know that third party apps have more features and functionality but I have a tendency to stick to the stock ones because of how they are tied to iOS as far as Siri and how well they function to together.

    I use the stock apps. I use Evernote and OneNote for extensive note taking, but I'll use the stock notes app for quick stuff like a grocery list.

    I've just recently switched to evernote for notes and reminders. Still not sure I'm going to stick with it. I'm curious about Fantastical 2 for a calendar alternative. I like the look of the new widget.

    I use the stock apps: calendar, reminders, contacts, notes.
    I do use Evernote to clip blogs or web pages.
    Good Luck

    I use both the stock Calendar and 2 3rd party Calendars. Stock Notes, Mail and Reminders. Google Maps and Waze. Safari browser mostly. Sometimes Puffin free. Stock calculator.

    I use Fantastical and AnyList. Fantastical ties into the stock calendar and reminders and has an awesome new widget.

    The only non-stock app I use is Gmail app in lieu of native Mail app. Much easier to store and organize saved mail.

    Personally yes, but only because of less screen space and not having to check as many apps. Also the integration with notifications and UI just seems better. But honestly most, if not all, the stock apps need a makeover in terms of functionality. So many third-party apps do what the native apps can do + more but I forgo them in place of deep integration, etc. regardless of their lack of features

    I use all of the stock apps and am happy with them, but I do use Evernote for lesson planning and meeting notes.

    For the most part I go with the stock versions, however, I do also use the third party ones, and on top of the stock apps as well. So, it's pretty much whatever I can get I use kind of thing.

    Pretty much use all stock ones with the exception of Evernote. I need the cross platform functionality that it provides and it nicely integrates with Outlook on my work computer.
