Can you remember a time when Evernote wasn’t part of your life? For productivity-conscious digital natives, this is one of the must-always-have apps and programs. It is pretty handy to have for school, work, and trying to make sense of all the content in your life. The developers over at Evernote are also pretty generous with their updates, always bringing new features or partnerships onto the table. Their latest is the introduction of Evernote Plus, a new paid service, as well as adding more features to its Premium service.

Evernote now has three tiers: Basic, Plus, and Premium. Basic is still its free service, and like its name implies, it has all the basic elements that make the service such a necessity. It is also for those who are just starting on the app, as they try to discover how Evernote can help organize their life, establish a workflow, etc. You can actually stay here without upgrading to the paid services, but once you find out how efficient it is, you might eventually want to level up to the “more advanced levels”.

Evernote Plus is the new kid on the block. This is for the more “engaged and active” users and features a host of exclusive features. You can upload up to 1GB of content every month. You can also access your notes even when you don’t have WiFi or data. And if you’re particular about your privacy, you can put a passcode lock on your notes or notebooks. You’ll also get the ability to turn important emails into Evernote notes.

Evernote Premium is for the seasoned, heavy users, and it now has even more features. You now have unlimited uploads and bigger note sizes. All the critical business features are also incorporated into the app. But if you’re working with a bigger group or organization, Evernote Business is the plan so that each team member will get the Premium service.

Evernote Plus costs $2.99/month or $24.99 per year, while Evernote Premium is still at $5.99/month or $49.99 per year. However, they have adjusted the prices per region. If in your area, the price of Premium has gone up, if you’re enrolled in the current plan, you’ll still pay the same until April 29, 2016, after which, they will adjust the price already. If it’s lower, they have an FAQ on how to switch to the lower price.
