Official Evernote Client Coming to Linux

Jan 30, 2020

The most widely-used note-taking app is coming to Linux.

Evernote has been one of the more popular note taking apps for quite some time. Since the beginning it was labeled a cross-platform application. However, the one platform missing from the list was Linux. Evernote has always been available for Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS. But that will soon be changing, as Evernote recently announced an official Linux client is on the way.

In a blog post, Ian Small, CEO of Evernote, said, “The re-engineered web client (in limited release), the new mobile clients (in first preview), and the (as yet unreleased) new clients for Windows, Mac, and (yes!) Linux, along with the ongoing re-architecture and data migration we’ve been doing in the cloud, will set up Evernote to be able to innovate and ship with quality at a pace we haven’t seen in a long time.”

The Evernote note taking client offers features like:

  • Handwriting search – Find your text in any note.
  • Templates – Makes for faster and better note taking.
  • Notes sync – Keep your notes available on all devices associated with your account.
  • Offline notes (premium account required) – Makes all of your notes available anywhere, anytime (even without an internet connection).
  • Uploads (premium account required) – Up to 10 GB monthly note uploads.
  • Large notes (premium account required) – A 200 MB maximum note size.

Although there are other third-party Evernote clients for Linux (such as Nixnote, ForeverNote, and Tusk), this will be the first official client for the platform. As of now, there has been no word on if the Linux desktop client will be released as an Electron or a native application. Nor is there a timeline for the release.
