Evernote Restricts Device Sharing for Free Users, Increases the Cost of Paid Plans

Evernote today announced a change to its pricing plan along with a new free service cap. Paid Plus and Premium tiers get a price increase, while the basic plan now limits you to just two devices.

The biggest problem is that the free basic plan now restricts you to two devices per account, such as a computer and a phone, two computers, or a phone and a tablet. You are also still limited to only 60 MB of downloads per month. The Plus plan now costs $ 3.99 / month, up from $ 2.99 / month (or $ 34.99 / year), and the Premium plan rises to $ 7.99 / month from $ 5.99 / month (or $ 69 , $ 99 per year). The price hike stems from what Evernote says is “a significant investment of energy, time and money.” If you are impacted by a price change, take a look at the email from Evernote telling you what to do. The price change will only take effect after August 15, 2016. Update : Until today, Evernote ‘s FAQ about price changes had the following text:

Evernote has since updated their post by deleting it and it looks like the price change will take effect immediately. We’ve contacted Evernote to clarify when prices will take effect and will update them as soon as we get a response.

Update: Evernote advises that price increases will occur to users at different times. If you are a subscriber, you will receive an email with specific dates. Not until it comes into effect on August 15, but some people may see it later.
