Evernote [evernote.com] is offering students 75% off a one year subscription. This might also work for faculty or staff with a .edu email. Figure somebody might have interest in the deal.

Forgetting sucks. Capture everything you need to know and keep it with you wherever you go.

*Offer available only for new or Basic Evernote users who can verify eligibility with a valid .edu or .ac email address on the following page (university-issued emails from Canada, Germany, and Switzerland may also qualify, click here for more details). Offer valid until September 30, 2016.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

not sure why this got TD?

Has anyone done this? Does it give you a code that you could apply to your pre-existing premium account to extend the subscription?

evernote used to be awesome when it was free, too many other options to be paying for a note taking app like this (albeit Evernote is still a very good app). I switched over to OneNote by Microsoft, and like it just as much, if not more than Evernote, and it's free.

FYI the reason why i switched was not because of the charge for Premium, but because Evernote recently made their basic free subscription limited to just 2 devices (I have a phone, laptop and tablet).

There is an import tool and other utils. https://blogs.office.com/2016/03/...ote-today/

I went with Google Keep instead because I use gStuff. But Keep is very basic, for example, can't even format the texts. So I may end up hopping to OneNote at some point too.

$17.50 for a note app is not a deal, IMHO. Evernote will go down because of this aggressive pricing.

Yep there's an import tool. Make sure Evernote is synced, then after the import go through each note to confirm they've been migrated properly.

This is a good full featured app, but you can get the same features for free with Onenote+Office Lens+Wunderlist.

Sure they are three different apps, but they integrate perfectly and can be used with Onedrive.

I used Premium for a year and let it auto-downgrade to basic. im a self proclaimed power user and the only difference I feel day to day is the limited device restriction. so instead of having it on my desktop, phone and multiple tablets I removed them from my tablets. no big deal and I'm getting along just fine.

Evernote for Android has two key features (that I use alot) over Onenote.

1) If you import a high-res image, Evernote takes the file at the full resolution, whereas Onenote down scales the image to a very low resolution. So for example, if you scan receipts to your phone, hoping to archive them in your note-taking app and then print them back out later, forget doing that with OneNote. The images will be incredibly fuzzy and blurry. With Evernote, they will be saved at their full original resolution and print beautifully. (I also use an app called Stitch & Share which lets me convert giant emails into .PNG's which I then import into Evernote).

2) The other killer feature of Evernote is that it automatically OCRs your images and makes them searchable. So again, if you scan a receipt or bill and import it into an Evernote app, within seconds it will be searchable. This is not the case with Onenote.

Overall, if you use Onenote solely to keep text notes in sync between lots of devices, then it is a a better option because it's free for unlimited devices. But if you want to be able to include high res images in your notes (and as an added perk, make them searchable), then Evernote is better. With that said, if you can limit your use to two devices, there's really no need to upgrade to one of the paid plans. I have been on a free Evernote plan for a long time with no problem. The only reason I would upgrade would be if I wanted to add more devices, or if I needed to upload larger files, or if I wanted searchable OCR support for PDFs and office docs (the free version only OCRs images), or if I needed my files to be available offline. On that last point, all recently viewed files are available offline even on the basic plan as well (just like OneNote), however, if you upgrade to a paid plan, you can have the app make sure your offline files are kept up to date, even if you haven't opened them recently (this feature is completely unavailable on OneNote).
