Big user of Evernote? Hopefully, for your sake, you either pay for their premium tiers or you don’t use it on more than two devices. Why do I say that? Because this week, Evernote announced that its free tier, otherwise known as Evernote Basic, will start limiting users to access on just two devices. They are also adjusting Plus and Premium price tiers for new subscribers.
Evernote penned a pretty straight forward blog post to touch on each of these topics, saying that exactly what you expected them to say – they’d rather not do this, but keeping this best-in-class note app updated and innovative going forward costs money. (more…)
This morning, Google and Evernote co-announced that Google Drive has been integrated into Evernote with thumbnail previews and a much richer viewing experience when its documents are included in notes. That’s a fancy way of saying that you can access Drive files from within Evernote and then see them as more than just a link. (more…)
The Outlook app on Android and iOS is finally getting the new app integration that we knew was coming, thanks to Microsoft’s acquisition of Sunrise, the best damn calendar app on the planet that Microsoft is killing. In the next version of Outlook, you’ll be able to connect to Evernote, Facebook, and Wunderlist accounts, making your Outlook calendar a place for managing multiple apps and tasks.
If you used Sunrise at all in the past, this integration will be familiar. If you are new, well, this is the basic idea. With an integration or “Calendar App,” you connect Outlook to other apps, like Evernote, Facebook, and Wunderlist. Once connected, you can see things like Wunderlist or Evernote items with due dates in your calendar, but you can see other to-dos with a simple touch. With Facebook connected, your Facebook events will appear on your calendar, but are also shortcuts to the events in the Facebook app. (more…)
Evernote announced that they will be ending support for multiple functions yesterday, bringing what is virtually a demise to Skitch for Windows, iOS, and Android, as well as Evernote Clearly and Evernote for Pebble. Officially, Evernote is shutting down support this week, but this does not mean your apps won’t work. Until operating systems update to the point that you can’t use the apps, they should work fine. Just don’t expect updates or any kind of technical support. (more…)
Todoist, the highly popular task list and to-do app, announced new integrations with Google Calendar, Evernote, and Github this morning, bringing more functionality to users of the service. (more…)
Evernote pushed an update to its Android app yesterday, an update that brought a Material Design flavor with it. The update isn’t necessarily an overhaul, by any stretch of the imagination, but it does bring added polish in areas like colors, typography and flatness, to give it that Material feel throughout. The Evernote designers focused on creating independent layers and subtle animations to give the impression of depth and a “sense of hierarchy.”
The update also adds things like customizable quick notes, long presses to add or remove quick note options, a revamped navigation, simpler navigation drawer, and more. (more…)
