When we set out to create products and features here at Evernote, we’re trying to both perfect an experience and learn as much as we can. There’s a natural lifecycle to technology and at some point, it’s just not as relevant as it was at launch. We think that’s the case with a few of our current apps and as a result, we’ll be ending support for them in the coming weeks.
As of February 7th, we’ll be retiring Evernote Hello, Evernote Peek, Evernote for BlackBerry 7, and Evernote for BlackBerry PlayBook. This means they’ll no longer be available for download and we won’t be making any further updates to them. It also means that the apps or features within the apps, including sync with Evernote, will no longer work.
Evernote Hello and Evernote Peek
Hello and Peek were built to advance our thinking in a couple of different feature areas. Hello helped us hone business card and contact capture in Evernote, while Peek was an exploration of design for the iPad 2 and the Smart Cover. We’ve learned a lot in the several years these apps have been available and have integrated the best concepts and features from both directly into Evernote.
If you’ve enjoyed Hello, we hope you’ll check out Evernote for iOS or Evernote for Android. Evernote’s business card camera setting turns cards into rich contacts complete with LinkedIn profile information that are available instantly across most every device.
Our App Center partner StudyBlue provides a great alternative to Evernote Peek. StudyBlue turns the materials you’ve organized in Evernote notebooks into digital flashcards and practice quizzes.

Evernote for BlackBerry 7, BlackBerry PlayBook
We’re also discontinuing support of the BlackBerry 7 OS and the BlackBerry PlayBook devices. We’re focusing on modern operating systems and have a great version of Evernote for BlackBerry 10.
If you use BlackBerry 7 or PlayBook devices, you’ll be able to find all of your Evernote notes by logging in via Evernote Web.
The following FAQs should answer any questions you have regarding the end of support:
Evernote for BlackBerry 7
Evernote for BlackBerry PlayBook
Thanks for supporting these Evernote products, and stay tuned for what’s new. We just released Scannable, which we feel is the best mobile scanning experience available for the iPhone and iPad. It’s a delightful app that wouldn’t have been possible without the lessons from Evernote Hello. Our past informs our future and lets us build the best Evernote possible.
