Evernote is making a number of changes to its three different levels of service, increasing the charges for those subscribed to either of the paid tiers. The announced changes to the Plus and Premium tiers note-taking service also include alterations to the free plan, with users of Evernote Basic now limited to accessing their account from just two devices, instead being able to use it on as many devices as they wanted.
Somewhere, there is a school for iOS programmers where the term assignment is to write a note-taking app. Somewhere else, there is a university where you have to take on the likes of Evernote. Then, in the middle, there are the apps like SnipNotes 2.0, which offer notes plus smart extra features, without going crazy.
The best way to get apps for your iPad is slowly: as you need to do something, find what does it, and try some out. The worst way is to read an article listing "100 Amazing Apps." and download the lot in one go. If nothing else, one person's amazing is another person's shrug. MacNN has picked 10 and while, actually yes, we think they're pretty amazing, this set has been picked specifically to be what every iPad should have.
We can tell you right up front what Malcolm Owen would like to make his Thingy of the Week – but can't. It would be a new iPad Pro but at the moment, that's at best the Thingy of the Week for some courier company and throughout this One More Thing you're going to picture Malcolm looking out of the window for them to arrive.
Apple is apparently not done with feature changes and improvements to its Notes app for OS X and iOS. Interviewed by a Japanese Windows-oriented magazine, Apple marketing VP Brian Croll revealed that Notes will soon gain the ability to "capture" or import notes from Evernote, a popular notes web service, when OS X 10.11.4 is released. The update, which will likely be mirrored in iOS 9.3's release (which is also currently in beta) could prove a popular feature with users.
There are two things to know about writers: they are fabulous human beings, clearly, and they are in no way biased. The other is that there are better-paid jobs in the world, so if you have a writer in your life, you'll love them for their sheer brilliance -- and they'll love you for the human contact. Get them something that will truly help them and while you're at it, get the same for yourself.
If you go down to evernote.com today, you're reasonably sure of a big surprise. For the last few months, there has been a beta test of a new Evernote version, and from this week it's out of beta. It's only available on desktop computers: on iPhones and iPads, you have to use the iOS apps. The company says it will take time to roll out to everyone, but the new Evernote Web Client is here and/or coming, and it is far more elegant than its name.
Previously on Pointers ... back in February, we showed you an admittedly-contorted way of exploiting Evernote's great email feature. Once you'd set it up, you'd love it. Unfortunately, it involved using a second Evernote account, and new changes mean what we told you now only works if you spend some cash. We're more than fine with paying for the premium Evernote service, but our little hack requires a second one, and as useful as it is, it's not useful enough to subscribe twice. It would be nice to now tell you of a workaround to our workaround, but no, we can't. What we can do, though, is mimic the most useful feature we showed you -- so long as you have one Evernote subscription.
As of July 15, if you use the free version of Evernote you can no longer email into it: you can't forward an email to store in your Evernote account, you can't use any apps that save into Evernote via mail. As of July 27, Evernote has a new CEO, as the company's co-founder Phil Libin has stepped to the left to allow ex-Google manager Chris O'Neill to take the helm. The two things are (possibly) unrelated but they come from the same place: Evernote needs to make some cash.
It's not so much "alter" as in "change," it's more "alter" as in "alternative." Alternote 1.0 is an alternative to Evernote, or at least it is a better way of writing notes into Evernote. It's not a true alternative like Microsoft's OneNote, where the two do the same jobs of both entering and storing notes. Instead, Alternote is a substitute for the Evernote note-entering interface: you can write in this faster, and it's a much cleaner, simpler, OS X Yosemite-like application that is visually appealing.
