I have been with Evernote for 14 years and a paid subscriber for most of that time. I am currently subscribed to their Professional plan. I have no current plans to leave Evernote, but I always like to have an exit strategy and a plan B. For that reason, I am always evaluating and testing the competition.

Lately, there has been much talk on various forums about leaving Evernote and what to move to. This has been driven by the acquisition of Evernote by Italian software company, Bending Spoons, and heightened by two recent decisions by the company. The first was to increase the cost of subscriptions and the second was to cripple the free plan, making it more of a trial membership than the loss-leader it once was. I’m not going to go into my reasons why I think all of this will be good for Evernote in the long run, but this will be the first of several articles on transitioning away from Evernote for those that desire to.
