Evernote adds new middle-tier for those who want premium features at a lower price

Evernote, which previously offered only a free Basic membership or a $50/year Premium one, has now added a middle tier. The new Evernote Plus subscription offers many of the premium features for half-price, at $25/year. The catch? Limits to the amount of data you can add to Evernote.

Evernote Plus limits you to 1GB/month total, a maximum note size of 50MB and no more than 250 emails per month – and you’ll be missing out on a few features, like the ability to search inside PDFs and Office documents. The full comparison chart can be found here.

Evernote has also increased Premium prices in some regions, including the U.S. if you pay monthly, up to $5.99/month. However, the company says that it has locked in existing pricing for current subscribers.

If you’re currently paying and the price of Premium went up in your region, then we’ve locked you into your rate for a year, or more. As long as you continue in your current plan, your price will adjust at your first renewal after April 29, 2016.

Finally, some regions have seen a price fall, and the company’s FAQ explains how to switch to the lower price.

Evernote made major improvements to its OS X desktop app toward the end of last year.

Update: Brent Simmons write on his blog that Vesper for Mac is indeed next.

Vesper received a major feature update overnight bringing one of the most requested features to the note-taking app: support for sync. Vesper, the project of John Gruber, Brent Simmons, and Dave Wiskus under the name Q Branch, was released almost a year ago for the iPhone and decidedly lacked iCloud sync (due to reliability) or any alternative. Simmons has since been journaling his experiencing with building an in-house sync solution for Vesper on his Inessential blog if you are interested in reading the behind-the-scenes work that goes into such a project…

OneNote for iPad update untethers app from PC-based OneNote program

Microsoft OneNote, the software giant’s note taking application, has been updated to version 2.1 today. With this update, the iPad app can act as a standalone and doesn’t require a PC to create new notebooks or edit sections. As noted on the OneNote blog, the functionality is now live in the iPad app, but while the iPhone app received an update today the new features aren’t available there.

New SkyDrive notebooks

Notebooks are an essential part of OneNote and play a significant role in helping you organize all of your content. Many of our customers submitted feedback requesting the ability to create new notebooks.  We’re happy to announce that OneNote for iPad now has full support for creating new SkyDrive notebooks.

On the Notebooks list, tap Create Notebook. 

Enter a name for your new notebook, then tap Create. You’re all set!

Add, rename, and delete sections

Sections are a great way to help you group your notes within a notebook. With this update, you can add, rename and delete sections.

It’s really easy to add a section on OneNote for iPad: On the sections bar, tap the plus button, enter a name for your new section, and you’re on your way.

Tap the desired section title to bring up the two options, Delete and Rename.

If you’d like to rename a section, select that option, and the section title will be automatically highlighted. Just start typing and tap Done on your keyboard to save the new name.

The update also brought a few other bug fixes and features. Microsoft OneNote for iPad and Microsoft OneNote for iPhone are free in the App Store.
