On their blog today, Evernote has announced pricing changes for their two pay tiers as well as change to their free basic tier. The prices go into effect immediately for new customers who sign up starting today while those who already have an account will see the price increase starting August 15th. For the free basic tier, functionally the program remains pretty much the same although you are now limited to syncing to two devices. Those two device can be a PC or a phone, a phone and tablet, a PC and a tablet, etc. You get the idea: two devices only. The basic tier also has the free PIN locking of your account on your devices, which became a part of the free tier earlier this month.
For Plus customers, your price is increasing for $2.99 per month to $3.99 per month. This tier lets you sync up to 1GB per month across all your devices and allows you to view your notes offline. The top tier, Premium, goes up from $5.99 to $7.99 per month and gives you all the features of basic and Plus with additional features like searching within documents, 10GB of uploading per
month, annotate PDFs and several other power user features.
You can get a complete rundown of the features at each tier here.
The increase in pricing doesn’t come as too much of a shock honestly as it has been a while since Evernote increased their prices.
Two things that won’t ever change are our commitment to making you as productive as you can be and running our business in as transparent a way as possible. No ads. No data selling. Just a great product at a fair price. So when it’s time to adjust our pricing, we want you to know what we’re doing, why, and what it means for you.
As for me, this isn’t a big deal personally and I will continue to be a Premium users as I have the last 5 years. I find Evernote and the flexibility it brings me across all my devices to be more than worth the monthly costs.
If you haven’t tried the service and want to do so, you can try it the Premium tier for 30 days for free if you click on this link.
