Hey now everyone just calm down a little bit. There are probably some of you stirring about Evernote releasing a new pricing structure
for their product. As proponents of Evernote, we encourage you to take a deeper look into the changes and ask the question, why? And is it a good or bad thing? Rest easy in knowing that even though the prices have changed and the access to features may be a little different, it is all good; we believe it is for the better.
Let’s look closely at the current offerings:
Evernote has a three-tiered pricing structure. Level one or Basic
is free to access. Every once in awhile Evernote modifies its feature available in the free account access. In their newest rollout, they have added some features that are handy
. You can now add a passcode on the mobile app. In the current day of data breaches adding a second level of security is a great add-on. However
, the new version of the free access now limits the number of connected devices you can sync with your profile. This is a significant change for a lot of you. If you have a nNotebook and a phone, no worries, your are good to go, BUT if you have a tablet in that mix, or a desktop computer, you have some choices to make.
If you want to sync a third device, here is my simle solution. You can access your account through the web tool
. If you log into your account through your browser, it saves you from using up one of the two allowed devices. So for those that use the free platform relax, the changes are acceptable, and you are not losing out on any key features. In fact, you are gaining some new functions that are great like sharing and discussing notes which used to be a feature of the paid version.
There are two other membership options from Evernote. The Plus
and The Premium.
Even though the pricing is a little different, it is still well worth the investment in my opinion. We use Evernote on a daily basis, and it is integral in the day to day operations of DottoTech. There are so many features within the paid versions of Evernote that we’re kinda’ glad the price raised a little. Accessing notebooks offline and forwarding emails are a couple heavily used tools in the paid version. It shows that they are taking measure to ensure its viability rather than fading away in the manner of such platforms like Blab and so many others that seem to be there one day and gone the next.
There is plenty of uproar about Evernote’s changes in fees. We are confident that these changes will make the product better and allow the company to continue to evolve
. We gladly subscribe to the Premium service simply because of how much work we conduct within the platform. Everyone is going to have to develop their opinions on the matter. Just know that in an environment such as ours, that sees change at an exponential rate this should come across as positive and necessary. Take a look at the changes and decide from there. For us here at DottoTech we are excited about the changes and look forward to future advancements. If that isn’t enough, take a look at what Evernote
has to say on their blog in regards to the changes.
There you have it; there is a silver lining to paying a little bit more for an outstanding product. We hope you see that now, let us know your thoughts. Until next time, have fun stormin’ the castle!
