Face to face in the news:
2016 - Evernote limits free plan to 2 devices and raises prices to keep up competition with Notes Plus
Note-taking app Evernote introduced new pricing policy. The Basic plan remains free, but is now limited to only two devices. That might be sufficient for the average user — Evernote likely wouldn’t deliberately rankle a majority of their free users — but it’s still a considerable limitation. The addition of the passcode lock feature to Basic helps soften the blow, though. Plus, which was $3 per month, now costs $4 (or $35 per year), while Premium went from $6 to $8 per month, or $70 per year. You get 1GB and 10GB, respectively, in those plans, and the specifics of what’s offered (too much to list here) can be found at the Evernote site.
