Evernote was pretty much one of the first to market and was perhaps offering features that the world wasn’t quite ready for at launch. The idea of entrusting your valuable notes to, well, an app, was possibly too hard to swallow for many at first, but nowadays it’s positively old-fashioned not to have some kind of AI involved in your notetaking activities.
It is here where Evernote’s polish shines through having been refined over such a long period.
Deals with higher-end paper notebook manufacturers such as Moleskine have also helped its popularity.
The best thing about Evernote is that it just seems to sync everything seamlessly and no what device you drop onto your notes, images, webpage clippings, or whatever are there waiting for you.
There is a free tier, which is pretty basic but allows you to get a feel for it, or you can then choose between a Premium or Business class of account. The Premium, aimed at individuals, will integrate nicely with other apps you may be using, such as Slack, Teams, even SalesForce but to do all this it will set you back $7.99 a month which isn’t overly cheap.
The Business options bring all those features but allows collaborative working on notes but will set you back $14.99 a month per user, and you need a minimum of two users, so unless you can really justify the extra expense, it is worth staying on Premium in our opinion.
Evernote is slick, works great, and if you take a lot of notes, it will organize that aspect of your life using a combination of different notebooks and tags, so you know what has come from what.
Feature-packed Premium version
Pretty much everything has an app
Free tier is a demo only really
Not overly cheap and yet another monthly subscription to pay for
