Evernote makes it easy to remember big and small things from your life using your computer, phone, and the web. It is basically an advanced to-do tracker with native apps for Windows, iPhone or the web, that keep themselves synchronized over the Internet.
Evernote has the ability to search for text contained inside the uploaded pictures (you can see this feature in action here) or it can act as a publishing platform. It offers two plans: free and premium. The later is available for $5/month or $45/year and it offers uploads up to 1 GB each month, top priority support and advanced collaboration features.
The Evernote’s website traffic experienced significant growth in the last months; the company also managed to land $50 million dollars in new funding from Sequoia Capital, which confirms that things are going well for the company nowadays.
Although Evernote seems to be a well-established company, things weren’t always that good, especially at the beginning. Evernote co-founder Phil Libin shared during a video interview how close the company came to a full stop: a $500’000 investment arrived just hours before a planned shut-down as Evernote was previously unable to meet payroll expenses.
