Evernote closes Market down, will link to actual manufacturers

Evernote closes Market down, will link to actual manufacturers

Evernote calls it focusing on its core business. Others might see it as signs of trouble. The once popular startup, considered to be a unicorn in Silicon Valley, has shut down many of the products and services it has considered dead weight. The latest to get the ax isn't even a product technically speaking but a marketplace. Evernote Market, the place where you can order and buy physical products and objects related to the note-taking service, is shutting down, freeing Evernote to concentrate on what it does best.

Evernote: dead unicorn or struggling teen pop star

Evernote: dead unicorn or struggling teen pop star

Among some circles, particularly productivity and venture capitalist groups, there has been some talk about Evernote becoming a dead unicorn. Considering how the product has become ingrained in today's digital lifestyle, it's not surprising to see how polarizing the topic has become. It doesn't help that the company is indeed showing some signs of struggling, particularly with its workforce and management, though it is definitely not out of the running yet. This David turned Goliath, who has managed not only to displace but also shut down some of its rivals (Sprinpad) might be finding itself losing some steam, and here might be some of the reasons why.

Evernote has announced that users on the iPhone and iPad can now sketch within notes, bringing the much-requested feature to iOS. Sketching within a note is, more simply put, the ability to write within a note by hand; you can use the feature to sketch out ideas or to scribble math equations, or something else entirely. That’s not the only feature Evernote has announced, though, with iPad users in particular getting an extra special treat.

Evernote Food support ends on September 30

Evernote Food support ends on September 30

A couple of years ago, Evernote introduced a new product aimed at the cooks among its user base: Evernote Food. This allows people to do things like take pictures of the meals they cook and others, clip recipes, and more. By all accounts, Evernote Food has been popular, but it has also become redundant. As any Evernote user would know, you can do those aforementioned things with the service’s non-Food offerings, and that’s why the company has announced it is dropping support for the Evernote Food iOS and Android apps.

Evernote updates web app with cleaner, faster interface

Following a series of beta tests since last October, Evernote has finally started rolling out a fresh new interface for its web app this week. The overall look is intended to provide users with a "distraction-free" environment, thanks to a user interface that is both faster and cleaner. Evernote mentions that it's not trying to replicate the experience of its already existing desktop apps, but it also seems to be more than a little inspired by the editor from web writing platform Medium.

Evernote clarifies top plan’s ‘unlimited’ storage: 10GB per month

In April, Evernote introduced updated plans in the form of Plus and Premium, both of which come with a subscription fee and features commensurate with what each plan offers. The premium feature is targeted at Evernote power users — those who use it frequently, likely daily, and need ample space to do so. As such, Evernote announced that the premium plan offers “unlimited” storage, but users soon discovered that, as with buffets and mobile plans, there’s still a limit -- the company just didn’t anticipate you’d manage to hit it.

Also, that previously discussed Apple Watch version of Evernote is alive and well in the update.

Adonit Jot Script 2 Evernote Edition review

Adonit Jot Script 2 Evernote Edition review

Adonit wants to keep you scribbling away digitally, and their new Jot Script stylus is their best effort to that end thus far. Though penning a long letter digitally probably isn't the aim (or your desire), quick notes are. Jot Script 2 boasts improved hardware, and a firm grasp on Penultimate, the note taking app from Evernote. To see if Adonit improved o their original Jot Script enough to make us ditch paper, we took Jot Script 2 and Penultimate for a spin.

Evernote for Apple Watch is inbound

Evernote has announced an upcoming app for the Apple Watch, the likes of which we've covered extensively today (check out our hands-on!). The company that made note-taking trendy has gushed over Apple's new wearable, saying that "we're about to experience a forward leap that will inevitably make memories of our pre-Apple Watch wrists seem grainy and sepia-toned". Evernote wants to make sure it's right there to go along with it (and your wrist), and as such you'll be able to dictate notes to your wrist and more.
