Evernote Changes Pricing and Adds Usage Restrictions

Beginning today, the prices for our Plus and Premium tiers will change for new subscriptions, and access from Evernote Basic accounts will be limited to two devices. Current subscribers and Basic users who are using more than two devices will have some time to adjust before the changes take effect. If you are impacted, look for a message from us in the coming days.

I use Evernote, but to such a small extent that I’ve never seen the advantage of paying for the service. I have a few dozen notes that I access on my different devices. But the new plans limit how many devices you can use to two. Essentially, that’s a computer and a mobile device, though many of us have more than one of each.

Evernote, for me, has always been a solution in search of a problem. I understand how useful it can be for teams, in an enterprise environment, and it looks like the company wants to limit shun casual users like myself and focus more on the team aspect of its service. Fine; I’ll find a replacement. Apple’s Notes is starting to look good; the changes in iOS 10 and macOS Sierra look like that app might be a good candidate. (Note that I’m not averse to paying for a service, but I simply don’t see the need given my use of Evernote.)

However, I don’t trust iCloud, and I would prefer something that syncs via Dropbox, so I can have local copies of my data, backups, etc. Any suggestions?

Note: several people have suggested Microsoft OneNote. I find the app’s interface off-putting, but I may try it out. You can get a free OneDrive account to sync your data, and if you use this link to sign up, you can get an extra 500 MB storage (added to the basic 5 GB), and I’ll get extra storage as well.
