Importantly for free/basic users: "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."

Evernote have also announced higher prices for paid plans.

Evernote Basic Free

The easiest way to get started with Evernote, Basic has been and will remain free of charge. Evernote Basic supports web clipping and note sharing, so you can capture memories, ideas, and inspiration and save them forever.

On Basic, you can access notes on up to two devices, such as a computer and phone, two computers, or a phone and a tablet, as well as on the web, so you can continue to take your notes with you throughout your day. Passcode lock on the mobile app, formerly a paid feature, is now available on Basic as well.

Evernote Plus $3.99/month or $34.99/year (save 27%)

To stay in sync across all your devices, consider Evernote Plus. You’ll also enjoy the ability to take notebooks offline on a mobile device, so your notes will be with you wherever you go, even when there’s no Internet connection. You can forward emails into Evernote and keep them alongside related notes, complete with attachments, and 1 GB of upload space each month means you can keep all your projects together.

Evernote Premium $7.99/month or $69.99/year (save 27%)

Get the full power of Evernote with Evernote Premium, a set of tools designed to help you go paperless and take ideas into action across all your devices. Find text buried inside Office docs. Annotate PDFs. Discover connections between notes, turn business cards into phone contacts, or present your work with one click. Premium includes 10 GB of monthly upload space, and you have all the benefits of Plus and Basic, too.

Not willing to add a much-needed tier in between Basic and Plus for which it seems like a large portion who have been quite vocal on the forums, is disappointing to say the least. I would maybe, come back, but like others, have found great alternatives as Evernote has become perhaps a bit too greedy while also not improving much along the way.

Implementing the new polarizing structure has already damaged their reputation beyond repair perhaps; given the fact that services have rarely improved, some arguing they have been getting worse (take a look at how wonderful the Evernote Web Clipper was at its height, and now it is slow, finicky issues with browsers that weren't occurring before, plus now annoying ALL customers often with reminders about how "this would be a good item to clip" that don't seem to go away. Not a very nice way to treat paying customers, let alone pickup some new customers... bye Evernote - too little, too late!

Whenever I give a chance to use it, I give up after 3 minutes.

Used to really like it, as it made taking notes really quick & easy across both PC + phone. But in recent months the iOS app has become basically unusable for me (super slow and buggish) & it doesn't seem they'll fix it anytime soon.

Evernote is not reliable. Images disappearing, notebooks disappearing, etc. It works most of the time, but you are almost guaranteed to experience issues at some point. I have used Evernote for more than 10 years, and it has always been like that. It never improves. Always keep this in mind: Your data is not safe with Evernote!

The UI is horrible. It’s slow and full of bugs. Both the mobile app, the web client, and the client app on the PC. Yes, it’s full of features, but you’ll constantly come across little annoyances. Things don’t work as they are supposed to, all sorts of weird behaviour. This is another thing, like the reliability issues. You have hope that it will improve with future updates, but it never does. Again, I have used it for a very long time, and it has always been like that. They add features but implement them poorly. It’s just bad quality software.

Oh, one more thing about the data loss issues. You’d think, fine, you’ll just make backups. But guess what: There is no reliable and easy way to export or backup your data! Sure, there is a feature for it. But does it work well and reliably? No! Check for yourself, if you don’t believe me.

Customer service is always nice, and responsive. You’ll be deceived to believe that it is worth reporting the issues and keep using Evernote. You’ll be deceived to think that it is a great company. It is not. Trust me, you are wasting your time. I think, Evernote, as a company, should have gone out of business many years ago. If Evernote didn’t exist, the world would be a better place.

No way. I will never put my notes in someone's server.
