On Wednesday Evernote launched a new service tier. In addition to the basic (free) and premium (paid) tiers, Evernote now offers a paid service tier which splits the difference.
Evernote Basic is still the free, limited service which lets you upload up to 60MB a month. It doesn’t let you do much more than that, though. You can’t, for example, save emails to Evernote or view your notes offline. For that you will need to upgrade to Evernote Plus.
Evernote Plus costs $3/month or $25/year. That’s half the price of Evernote Premium, and it’s also half as useful. The Plus service limits you to uploading up to 1GB of notes each month, and it adds that offline option and a password option for Evernote’s mobile apps.
If you need more features, like searching in office docs, version control for your notes, or editing PDFs, you’ll need to subscribe to Evernote Premium at $6/month or $50/year.
Evernote has always offered the Premium tier but today it is getting a little better. Evernote has dropped the 4GB monthly upload limit for Premium subscribers, and they also enabled larger individual note sizes so you can better organize your work.
Along with the new tier and new features, Evernote has also bumped the price of Evernote Premium from $45/year to $50/year (prices vary between regions). If the price of Premium has gone up in your area, you’ll still pay the same until 29 April 2016, after which, they will adjust the price. If it’s lower, they have an FAQ on how to switch to the lower price.
