    Just received an email that says

    Saving emails into Evernote is now a paid feature

    You’ll be able to save five trial emails into Evernote with your Evernote Basic account.

    To continue using this feature, you’ll need to upgrade your Evernote account. Upgraded accounts come with more features, including increased monthly uploads, offline access to notes on mobile, and enhanced privacy features.​


    This is very disappointing, as I rely heavily upon that feature, but the other upgrade features don't really appeal to me. What do you think, is it time to move over to Apple Notes?

    mkt5371.com ? That's very like a phishing link, as confirmed with a quick googling. Be careful, I wouldn't follow that link.

    Apple Notes is very basic, although in El Capitan it seems to have more features. Personally I use it for basic notes and Evernote for web clipping only, while I use Google Docs for bigger notes.

    Uhm I found some articles that instead say the links are genuine... that domain seems to be owned by a mailing company that perhaps Evernote uses... not sure.

    Sadly I believe that the links are valid and that I'll have to start paying for this feature. Evernote is on a big mission to generate revenues. Can't say I blame them for that, it is an excellent product.

    I totally agree with this. They provided the email feature free for years, now they want to make all users pay for it. Ridiculous. I have tried multiple times to contact them about this and heard nothing. No media about this decision either.

    Glad I have finally seen someone mention it.

    Evernotes Blog April 29th:






    Youtube (DotTech):

    Plus about 50 other websites/blogs mentioning it.

    Nope no media at all.. :rolleyes:

    Only thing "ridiculous" is someone complaining about using a service for free for years then whining when they move 1 feature to a premium tier and then having to pay a couple bucks a month to use something they find valuable. Evernote doesn't have ads for free users, free users provide zero revenue. I subscribed to Premium just because I have used Evernote for years and I want them to stay around for a long time and not go broke because everyone is a freeloader.

    Are you trolling? Not a single one of those posts specifically mentions what I was talking about.

    The fact that a FREE feature that was used to suck customers into using the app now requires PAYMENT to use.

    Now I have to go out and find a different app to use. And there is a multitude of free apps in this space.

    My problem is not with paying, it is with the way evernote has gone hiding that which it is now charging for, and being evasive about what will require payment in the future. Soon it may be that none of the service will be free. Who knows?

    I will get out before I'm stuck in a service that continues to raise prices.
