When it comes to taking all manner of notes and using them to get work done, having an app that syncs across all your devices and has a browser version, too, is indispensable. Evernote has long been a leader among, though the company has taken its fair share of criticism in recent years for adding excessive features without polishing core ones, hiking its prices, and gutting the free version.
Nevertheless, in terms of functionality, you'll be hard-pressed to find a service that does everything Evernote does, which is why it remains the Editors' Choice. In this review, I examine all aspects of Evernote as a service, including a detailed analysis of its prices and plans. Note also that there are Evernote apps for every major desktop and mobile platform, and that you can access it via a browser, as well. Pricing, Plans, and Value Evernote offers three tiers of service for personal use: Basic (free), Plus ($34.99 per year), and Premium ($69.99 per year). Students are eligible for discounts. The company also has a Business plan, which costs $12 per person per month.
See PCMag's review of for more. The Basic option has become quite limited in the years since Evernote first launched, to the point that its restrictions keep it from being a useful tool for many people. I do not recommend it except as a way to get a sense of the app's interface. The main problem with the free version is that you can only sync between two devices, although you can access your notes via the Evernote web app from any browser. You cannot save any data offline to your two devices, so you can't get your notes if you don't have an internet connection. Evernote uses cloud storage, and you can add a set amount of additional data each month. Unused storage from one month does not roll over to the next.
With the free account, you get 60MB of new storage per month, and that isn't much if you attach files to notes. Also, the biggest file you can upload to a Basic account is 25MB. The free account doesn't come with any tech support either.
There is at least one perk in the free account, however, and that's the ability to search handwritten text in images. That said, with the 60MB of storage per month, you probably won't be uploading many handwritten notes.
The Plus account offers a lot more. You can sync across as many devices as you need, and you can upload up to 1GB of new data per month. With Evernote Plus, you can save selected notebooks offline so that you can read and edit your notes even if you don't have an internet connection. You also get the ability to forward emails into Evernote and have them show up in your account as a new note, which you can't do with the Basic account. If you need support from Evernote, it's available, but only via email. I recommend the Plus account to Evernote users who see the Premium plan as too expensive (a valid complaint) but who still want to get as much as they can from the tool.
Unfortunately, the Plus account has limitations that aren't advertised front and center and which you might not even miss until you run up against them. Version history is one example. Say you need to restore a previous version of a note. Try to access your note history, and youre greeted with a prompt to upgrade to Premium. When you run into this suggestion to upgrade from Plus to Premium, there's $7.99-per-month option, so you don't have to commit to the annual fee.
It's kind of like an $8 hostage fee. Premium includes everything that's in Plus, and more. Storage increases to an additional 10GB per month. You can annotate PDFs that you upload. When you search for text, Evernote looks not only in your notes and images, but also PDFs and Office files you've uploaded. You can get customer support via email or live chat. There's also a mode that lets you turn notes into slideshows with no additional effort on your part.
