Evernote wants to be a 100 year company   Leave a comment

Since I got my iPad, and started trying out different apps, Evernote has become my favorite app.  At first I was a bit skeptical to even try it… Did I really need an app to take down notes when I could just as easily use the “Notes” application on my iPad or iPhone? The answer is YES.  As I discussed in an earlier post, Evernote does much more than mere note-taking, and it allows you to synch your notes, pdfs and files among different devices through cloud computing.

One example of a new Evernote application that does not involve mere note-taking, is Evernote Peek, which is great for students as an alternative to old-style flashcards:


But now that there are so many other note-taking apps out there, how does Evernote plan to stay competitive and relevant?  Evernote hopes to answer that question at its first Evernote Trunk Conference for developers that will be held in San Francisco on August 18, 2011.  Evernote’s goal is to become a productivity platform, and to provide services that will enhance the user’s experience beyond mere note-taking and memory storage.  This is how Evernote plans to use the recent $50 million in funds it recently obtained, and become a 100 year company.
