I am a "premium" user, which means I pay to use Evernote. I suddenly realized Evernote is running analytics on its pages, which makes me wonder how much of my behavior on the site is recorded and fed into the Algorithm. I realize Google and others made the internet "free" (as in "free to rock the chain") by taking personal information, instead of money, in return for their products. I am not sure I feel OK both paying in money AND information, though. Can one opt out of the analytics? Cheers, Tomas from Sweden
Has anyone else downgraded to EN Basic had this experience? Evernote used to be one of my favourite applications ..... until recently that is. I wanted to support the business and development of EN and was a Premium account user for years until I downgraded from a Premium account to a basic account (I just couldn't justify the cost based on how much I actually used) this month and at first it gave me the usual, "are YOU SURE? Look at all the amazing features you'll lose." thing and I understood that... figuring this was a way to retain premium users. Well, it never stopped. Every single time i sign in on my (now two) allowed devices I see pop-ups and banners "your premium account is about to expire" or "your premium account HAS expired" and when I try to sign in on the web, it asks me to choose what account tier I want .... every single time! I get notifications or pop ups on the Android version as well as the desk top. But what really infuriated me is that today I got the millionth pop-up (edit: * to add that this is in the desktop version) that says, "You're halfway to your monthly upload limit. Nice job! Upgrade now and get all the space you'll need" Which would be another great tool to bring users back to Premium, if it were not for the fact that I have only used a tiny fraction of my monthly upload allotment. (about 12 kb out of 60 MBs) and am nowhere even close to reaching 5% much less 50% of my monthly upload limit!!! I don't appreciate constant spamming, pushing, deceptive pop-ups and hectoring to get me to upgrade again. If this keeps up every day I'm going to just switch to OneNote. I used to love EN so much but it feels like the vibe has changed... gone is EN Food, Skitch... and a friendly work environment. Like being pushed to come back to an ex, I'm afraid that customers might resent these attempts and any thoughts they might have had about upgrading might vanish.
