TEC #010 – Evernote Free to Premium (and back!)

TEC #010 – Evernote Free to Premium (and back!)

Hello,

This week we are going to discuss going Free vs Premium on Evernote.

I am not going to explain to all the differences between two options as it is very well explained on Evernote website (https://www.evernote.com/about/premium/).

Suffice to say that for me the main points for me to go Premium are:

  1. 1Gb download/month instead of 60Mb
  2. offline notebooks on my iPhone
  3. show my support for Evernote so they can provide the service for 100 year!

What I want to explain in this episode is that not too many people realize that it is possible to go Premium for one month or two to upload plenty of information to Evernote and then go back to Free. They even encourage people to do so in one of the past Evernote podcast.

So you can buy one month Premium for 5US$ to upload notes and documents to your Evernote account up to 1Gb which is A LOT if you upload manily text notes. You can even boost the monthly quota to 5Gb and by additional Gb of quota at 5US$ each.

After that you can go back to Free and whatever you have uploaded to Evernote remains accessible.

Until the next time, happy evernoting!

Pierre.

TEC #009 – Create a note from a tweet using @myen

Hello,

It is possible to create a note from Twitter

Initialization:

  1. You first need to link your Twitter account: follow @myen
  2. You will receive a DM from @myen,
  3. Click on the link in the DM and log on to your Evernote account (if not already), you are done!
Description in a 5 tweets in the @myen time line:

You can check the link in the Evernote web interface in Settings, then Twitter option

Method to create a note via @myen:

  1. add @myen to any tweet or DM and a note with the text of the tweet will be created in your Evernote account
  2. there is no step 2 :-)

Pros: very fast

Cons: everybody who reads your tweets knows you are creating a note with it. Not such a big problem but it’s better to know it. Personnally I mail a tweet when I want to keep it (see episode #005 about the mail gateway to Evernote).
