Evernote is among the most well-known note-taking and task-management apps and is used by millions of users around the globe. Evernote is available on all the popular mobile and desktop operating systems and can also be accessed via a web browser.
Subscription-based services are pretty common these days, and Evernote is no different, with users having the option to use it for free or pay for a personal or professional account to get more features, including increased storage for uploads and syncing across unlimited devices. But the free plan may end up having some restrictions in the future, as Evernote is testing limitations on free users.
As reported by TechCrunch, Evernote is testing a limit of one virtual notebook and 50 notes for free users. Virtual notebooks are how notes are stored and organized on the service, and free users can currently have as many of those as they wish. But Evernote is hoping the new limits will drive more of its users to become paid subscribers.
Currently, Evernote is testing the limitations on less than 1% of its users, but if the trial is successful, the limit on virtual notebooks and the number of notes one can create for free could go into effect for everyone. Once that happens, users will be able to view, edit, export, or delete their existing notes but will have to pay if they wish to continue creating new notes.
Evernote has two paid plans, personal and professional, priced at $14.99 and $17.99 monthly or $129.99 and $169.99 if users choose to pay for a whole year. Both plans are currently discounted by up to 40% depending on market, and the service will probably continue offering such discounts to attract more subscribers whenever it decides to put the limitations on free users in place.
