Evernote has announced that users who take advantage of the note-taking service’s free Basic plan will soon find they are limited to using it on no more than two devices, while paid subscribers will find they are paying more for the extra features.
Basic plan users will soon be limited to using no more than two devices on the service, that means they’ll be limited to using it on two computers, a computer and a phone, or a phone and a tablet, or any other combination of two devices you can come up with. (Quick how many different combinations can YOU come up with? – Ed.)
Evernote CEO Chris O’Neil Explains the Changes
We don’t take any change to our pricing model lightly, and we never take you for granted. Our goal is to continue improving Evernote for the long-term, investing in our core products to make them more powerful and intuitive while also delivering often-requested new features. But that requires a significant investment of energy, time, and money. We’re asking those people who get the most value from Evernote to help us make that investment and, in return, to reap the benefits that result.
Evernote isn’t a vast corporation, and note-taking isn’t a sideline for us. It’s what we do, and we strive to do it better than anyone else. We hope you’ll continue to capture your thoughts and develop your ideas with us.
Pricing for the evernote Plus and Premium plans are now $3.99 per month ($34.99 a year) and $7.99 per month ($69.99 a year), respectively. Those prices are up from $2.99 per month and $4.99 per month, respectively.
User’s of the service’s Basic Plan found out about the new device limitations in an email sent this week, which told them they had a thirty day grace period to adjust to the new rules. Plus and Premium members can continue to use the app on as many devices as they wish.
