sflorack 3 Posted December 13, 2010 Share Posted December 13, 2010 I don't intend on trolling, or want people to become defensive. I really enjoy Evernote, but am confused about the benefits of upgrading to Premium (aside from showing support to Evernote).According to the website, Premium users receive:1. Monthly upload allowance increased to 500MB*2. Add, synchronize, and access any file across platforms and devices3. Maximum note size upgraded to 50MB4. For Android, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users, access your notebooks offline5. Search within PDFs6. Stronger security through SSL encryption at login and note transfer7. Priority image recognition8. Premium support9. No ads10. More premium only features coming soon!I won't even discuss numbers 1, 3 and 9 as they are completely straightforward.I don't know what #2 means when #4 talks about mobile phone syncing.4. I am able to add and synchronize on my iPhone with a free account. "Access your notebooks offline" means I can access them as long as I'm connected to the internet..? Also, if I have a Premium account, all notes are locally cached on my phone for offline reading? If I had 1,000 PDF's, wouldn't that take up an extremely large part of my iPhone's storage space? Is there a way to disable local caching?5. I can search within a PDF when using the free mode. I'm not sure what this means.6. I can connect to Evernote web over HTTPS with the free mode. Also, according to this post (http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=20756&p=87577), it seems I'm getting SSL over the desktop client regardless.7. I haven't noticed significant delay when comparing free vs paid.8. Haven't had to use support, so can't comment on the time difference of a response.10. What future developments are there? (I understand this could be a whole new thread itself..)Again, I love Evernote and wouldn't mind supporting the cause. I just don't understand what I'm getting aside from larger uploads and an increased quota. Doesn't the current pricing scheme promote users to upgrade for a single month, upload all/most of their files, and then revert back to free? Link to comment
