You can use the cloud-based Evernote on most any device. In this video, learn about the various versions for computers, tablets, and mobile devices, as well as the differences between the free version and other paid options.
- [Instructor] Well before we begin working with Evernote, I think it's important to understand that Evernote comes in many versions for the various devices and platforms out there, and that these different versions may look slightly different and behave somewhat differently from one another. Now in this course, we'll be focused on working with Evernote on a Mac computer, but you should keep in mind that Evernote is cloud-based, so what does that mean? Well one, there is an online version of Evernote on the web, so even if you don't have access to your computer, or you don't have the app installed on the device you're working with, you can open up a browser window and login to your Evernote account and use it online.
Now just know it will look and behave differently from the actual app. Number two, there are Evernote apps for all your mobile devices including iPads and iPhones, and they'll look and behave differently too. Number three, Evernote is constantly being improved and updated, so what you see in this course may already look different from what you see on your computer if you're updating regularly. But none of this should stop you from following along with me. The other thing you should know about Evernote versions is that there are various account levels to choose from, from the Basic free account to the paid Plus and Premium versions.
There's even a Business version for teams. Now the free Basic account lets you create notes, clip webpages and images. It can be used across multiple platforms, but on only two different devices, and it allows for finding text inside images using OCR, or optical character recognition. Now, you are somewhat limited with the Basic account when it comes to note size and uploads. You can upload up to 60 megabytes of content per month to Evernote, and a single note can be no larger than 25 megabytes.
Now with a Plus account at 46.99 a year, you can use Evernote on more than two devices. You can work offline on a mobile device, and even save important emails to Evernote. You'll also be able to upload up to a gigabyte each month, and a single note can be up to 50 megabytes in size, double the size of a note in the Basic account. Now for 89.99 per year, at least at the time of this recording, you get a Premium account.
This gets you all of the other account features that we talked about, but you can upload up to 10 gigabytes per month, and a single note can be up to 200 megabytes in size. You can also attach PDF files to a note and annotate them. You can go back in history to recover earlier versions of your notes, snap pictures of business cards that go directly to contacts, and even use Evernote to present notes like slides. Lastly, for those working in a business or team environment, there is a business version of Evernote that costs $12 per user per month.
Now with this version, you'll get all of the functionality discussed so far, plus teams can collaborate in a single workspace, keep projects and work altogether, share and give feedback in the app, and a whole lot more. Of course, as an individual using the Business version of Evernote, you can do all those personal things you can do with the other versions of Evernote as well. So, those are your Evernote options. We'll be working with the free Basic account as we move through the chapters and movies in this course. Let's get started.
