I’ve been an Evernote user for years. I used to have the Premium account for the offline notebooks feature, but since they’ve enabled that on the Basic account too, I stopped paying. It looks like the times are changing once again. Here’s an excerpt from the email I received today:
In the coming weeks, Evernote Basic accounts will be limited to two devices, such as a computer and phone, two computers, or a phone and a tablet. You are currently over this limit, but will have at least 30 days to adjust. Plus and Premium accounts will continue to support access from an unlimited number of devices.
There’s also a link to this blog post.
So. Here are my options:
- Limit the use of the account to two devices. This is not very realistic, as I access it from my mobile, tablet, and laptop, and often an additional computer here or there.
- Pay for the Evernote Plus or Premium account. That’s a possibility.
- Move away from Evernote to something else. I’ve been thinking about this for a while actually. Evernote solved my note taking problem back in the day, but now it seems too heavy for what I need. There are quite a few lightweight alternatives now, such as Simplenote and Google Keep, which might just do the job.
