I have been a continuous user of Evernote for a couple of decades, almost since its inception. A couple of years ago I moved or should I say I copied everything to Apple Notes to see if I can finally let it go, yet I am still using Evernote today. Mind you I am no longer a paying customer, I found that the free option is suitable just fine for my personal needs. So I hope they will continue offering a free limited version in the future. Otherwise, I will have no choice but to make my Apple Notes move permanently.
Evernote, the note-taking and task management app founded over 20 years ago, has been acquired by Milan-based app developer Bending Spoons. In a post on Evernote’s newsroom, Evernote CEO Ian Small said that Bending Spoons will take ownership of Evernote in a transaction expected to close in early 2023.
“For Evernote, this decision is the next strategic step forward on our journey to be an extension of your brain,” Small wrote. “Teaming up with Bending Spoons will [accelerate] the delivery of improvements across our teams, professional, personal and free offerings.”
For Evernote, the acquisition — the terms of which weren’t made public — marks the end of a roller coaster of a journey.
