Remember Evernote? The note taking service was acquired in 2022 by Bending Spoons, an Italy-based maker of mobile applications. Back then, Evernote was said to have 250 million users and a revenue of about $100 million per year.
Usage may drop significantly in the near future if Evernote is going ahead with its plans to limit free plan users of the service. Up until now, free users may create multiple notebooks and notes at the service. Free users may upload 60MB per month to the service and individual notes are limited to 25MB.
The first commercial plan, named Personal, is available for €8.33 per month or €99.99 per year. It adds unlimited device synchronization, larger monthly upload and note size limits, Google Calendar integration and other features to the note taking service.
Evernote is testing a limitation of the free service currently. According to TechCrunch, free users that have been selected for the test are limited to 1 notebook and 50 notes in total. The change would impact many free users of the service, especially those who have used Evernote as their go-to note taking application for years, or even longer. Our first mention of Evernote here on this site dates back to 2008.
Bending Spoons confirmed the "limited test" to TechCrunch and revealed that nothing has been finalized at this stage.
Evernote is testing new limits for free users currently that would limit each user to 1 notebook and 50 notes.
Evernote Free users will see the new limits reflected in their accounts from December 4. Free users who have more than fifty notes and one notebook will still be able to view, edit, export, share, and delete existing notes and notebooks.
