For those of you who are already using Evernote - or thinking of it - you should know that they have revised their pricing plans. The type of plan you choose depends on how you intend to use Evernote and how many devices you want to use it on. For those of you just starting out - I recommend the Basic, free account. You can always upgrade if you feel you need to add more devices or services. For genealogy purposes, if you are simply using Evernote as a web clipper on your desktop or laptop and maybe using it to scan documents, etc. from your phone, most of you will find the Basic service more than adequate.
Evernote posted all the information about the changes in a recent blog post, which I recommend you take a look at. The summary is:
The easiest way to get started with Evernote, Basic has been and will remain free of charge. Evernote Basic supports web clipping and note sharing, so you can capture memories, ideas, and inspiration and save them forever.
On Basic, you can access notes on up to two devices, such as a computer and phone, two computers, or a phone and a tablet, as well as on the web, so you can continue to take your notes with you throughout your day. Passcode lock on the mobile app, formerly a paid feature, is now available on Basic as well.
$3.99/month or $34.99/year (save 27%)
To stay in sync across all your devices, consider Evernote Plus. You’ll also enjoy the ability to take notebooks offline on a mobile device, so your notes will be with you wherever you go, even when there’s no Internet connection. You can forward emails into Evernote and keep them alongside related notes, complete with attachments, and 1 GB of upload space each month means you can keep all your projects together.
$7.99/month or $69.99/year (save 27%)
