Evernote is a suite of software and services designed for notetaking and archiving. A "note" can be a piece of formatted text, a full webpage or webpage excerpt, a photograph, a voice memo, or a handwritten "ink" note. Notes can also have file attachments. Notes can be sorted into folders, then tagged, annotated, edited, given comments, searched and exported as part of a notebook. Evernote supports a number of operating system platforms (including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Android, iOS and WebOS), and also offers online synchronization and backup services.
The Evernote web service launched into open beta on June 24, 2008 and has reached 11 million users. In October 2010, the company raised a $20 million USD funding round led by Sequoia Capital with participation from Morgenthaler Ventures and DoCoMo Capital. Since then, the company also has raised an additional USD $50 million in funding led by Sequoia Capital and Morganthaler Ventures.
Evernote is available in a paid version or a more restricted, advertising-supported, "free" version. Use of the online server is free up to a certain monthly usage limit, with additional monthly use reserved for paying subscribers.
