jmccorison 0 Posted January 8, 2011 Share Posted January 8, 2011 EDIT: I've changed the title of the original post. It turns out that my dissatisfaction was a result of a technical problem combined with misinterpreting a forum post by another user. The support I've received from other users and Evernote as a result of my post has been prompt and helpful. While I haven't gotten the problem resolved yet, I have no doubt that I will. I would like to say that I'm very happy with Evernote and regret having jumped to a negative conclusion. Original Post: I am a new user to Evernote. I have a home computer (Mac), office computer (Windows) and an iPod Touch. I though this would be a great way of sharing information. After all, Evernote promotes this share-anything-anywhere meme very heavily on their website. So I decided to try out the software and started loading up some notes. I reviewed the documentation about the different classes of accounts and figured that 60mb/month would be just fine, so the free account would work for me. I'm even willing to have rotating Promotions in the bottom left corner of the app. Imagine my surprise/disappointment when, after struggling with trying to get my notes from the office to sync to my home computer, I find out that I must have a premium subscription to do so. Clearly Evernote can set whatever rules and pricing policies that they want. After all, it's their business. But I'm left feeling snookered by a business that highly promoted one thing, but delivered another. I'm sure that somewhere, somehow, this distinction is documented, but I sure didn't come across it while reading about the product and subscription levels. I'll think about trying the premium for a month or two to see if it really is worth it. But my initial experience has left me wary of believing what is being promoted by Evernote. Link to comment
