Evernote discontinues Evernote for Pebble, Skitch and Clearly

Evernote has announced that it will be discontinuing a few of its apps. Specifically, the company will be shuttering Skitch on multiple platforms, as well as its Evernote Clearly browser extension, along with Evernote for Pebble smartwatches.

Skitch, which allows users to mark up images with text, drawings, and more, has largely had its functionality subsumed by the main Evernote application. As such, the versions of the app for Windows, iOS, and Android will all be discontinued.

As for the other projects, the Clearly extension's web article simplification features are now available through the Evernote Web Clipper. Meanwhile, Evernote suggests using the Powernoter{.nofollow} Pebble app, which lets you create Evernote notes with your voice.

With this announcement, Evernote will no longer be updating any of these products. They will pull them from the various app stores on after January 22, 2016.

  • Evernote had these apps too???? :-o
  • I never knew about any of these Evernote products. The last time I used Evernote's products were in 2006
  • Not discontinuing an app for Windows Mobile...THIS is a first.
  • True.
  • Um, no... it's true... I used Skitch on my Surface RT for quite a while to annotate images, since that was the simplest option available at the time. So Skitch for Windows will be discontinued, as will Skitch for other platforms.
  • OneNote is still better.
  • Evernote for WP device sucks. One note far better !
  • Agree, but still good that they aren't discontinuing their windows apps!!
  • I use both... I just prefer OneNote because it loads really fast compared to Evernote.
  • Now we're posting about other non relevant to windows platform? Or are you foreshadowing something for Windows too? Lol... Or it's just way over my head!! :)
  • Look up Skitch Touch in the Store... it's there... it has been there since 2013, shortly after Windows 8 was released. I used it on my Surface RT for image annotation. It's pretty simple, but that was part of its charm. For casual annotation, it worked pretty well. Now if Evernote would just drastically improve Evernote Touch (for example, to add image annotation in notes), that would be fantastic. I've been an Evernote user for years, but this stagnation of the touch version of Evernote is pulling me towards migrating to OneNote.
  • Misread the title thought Evernote discontinuing app for Windows Phone.
  • Man, not skitch. Darn.
  • I know. I love it to do simple annotations and sharing them with colleagues and friends.
  • Any other replacements? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Evernote is dying
  • OneNote is definitely better. Simple things like lists don't edit right in Evernote. Plus if you like upload ulyou whole OneNote library to Evernote you will hit there upload limit for the free plan. Skitch was good but used the snipping tool more. Couldn't stand the Switch icon either. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • The Wunderlist guy did the right thing by selling the company and cashing in at the right time, no question about it.
  • I use Clearly on Firefox. Reading on Clearly mode then save the article to Evernote is a breeze, i'll be missing this hard.
