Evernote Ends Closed Beta, Open to All

Evernote, the perpetual, multi-platform note-keeping and Web-clipping service that I reviewed favorably in March (Evernote Beta: Never Forget Anything) is now in open beta, which means that an invitation is no longer required to sign up. In addition, Evernote announced two new features:

  • A premium subscription level, with a 500MB monthly upload allowance (versus 40MB for free accounts), enhanced security, enhanced customer support and priority image recognition.
  • An enhanced Web clipper, which saves all or part of a Web page into Evernote, including text, images and source URL.

The free version remains as it was in my earlier review, with automatic synchronization between Windows, Mac, Web and mobile clients and advanced image search. One notable enhancement to the free version since my earlier review is support for PDF documents.
