Over the past few years we’ve introduced several standalone apps to the Evernote family that accomplish specific tasks. The Clearly extension made web pages more readable, and Skitch for Windows and mobile platforms made annotating images easy.
Today, you can find the most popular features from these two apps in many versions of Evernote and Web Clipper. As part of our promise to focus on improving the core Evernote experience, we are ending support for several of these standalone apps:
- Skitch for Windows, Windows Touch, iOS, Android
(Note: We will continue to offer and support Skitch for Mac)
- Evernote Clearly
- Evernote for Pebble
Specifically this means that as of today, we will no longer be making updates to these apps and as of January 22, they’ll no longer be available for download.
If you currently use any of these apps, you’ll find that they may continue to work for some time beyond January. We are not turning these apps “off,” but external changes like updates to your operating system or browser may break features or functionality at any point in the future.
Options for current users
We’ve incorporated many of the best features of Skitch and Clearly in our core applications. Skitch users will find nearly identical annotation functionality in the Evernote Windows and iOS apps. And the article simplification features from Clearly are available in our Web Clipper. People with Pebble watches can find similar Evernote features with the Powernoter app.
Thanks to you
We realize fans of Clearly and Skitch may be disappointed and we don’t take these decisions lightly. We’ve learned a lot from your feedback and are using it to improve Evernote every day. We’ve got big plans for 2016 and beyond, and our goal is very straightforward: make Evernote better than ever. Thanks to your support, that’s something we’re really excited about.
