We here at Evernote love app stores. They’ve played a critical role in Evernote’s growth, especially the iTunes App Store.
Since it’s launch, the iTunes App Store has set the standard for how storefronts should work, and its success has helped to create a new market. Now, Evernote can be found in over a dozen mobile storefronts worldwide from iTunes to Android to BlackBerry to WebOS. In recent months, app stores have become the way that most people first download Evernote, accounting for nearly 70% of new Evernote users!
To date, these have all been mobile, which is why we’re so excited about today’s announcement. Evernote is now available in Apple’s new Mac App Store.
This is huge
Apple revolutionized the way people interact with apps on their mobile devices. Before the iTunes App Store, finding and installing an app on your smartphone was about as pleasant as stepping on glass. Now, getting an app couldn’t be easier.
Imagine having that simplicity as part of your desktop experience.
By bringing their App Store know-how to the Mac, Apple is set to completely alter our expectations for software discovery and installation. We’re thrilled to be a part of it.
Get Evernote from the Mac App Store
The Mac App Store is part of the Mac OS X 10.6.6 update. Once you update, an App Store icon will appear on your dock. Then, search for Evernote and follow the installation steps. You will need an Apple ID
The advantages that the App Store offers are: much easier installation and easier updating.
If you already have Evernote installed
We recommend sticking with your installed Evernote version for now.
This is all new to us, and we can’t wait to see how the Mac App Store develops, and the effect that it has on the industry as a whole, which we anticipate will be quite significant.
