Evernote is dropping support for its Windows Phone app
If you're still using Evernote for Windows Phone, your days with the app are now potentially limited. Evernote has announced that it is gearing up to drop support for its Windows Phone app.
While Evernote for Windows Phone will continue to work if you already have it installed, the company notes that it will no longer be available to download on the Windows Store as of June 29. From Evernote (opens in new tab):
As the company points out, your notes and notebooks are synced to the cloud, so they'll continue to be available via the Evernote app on other platforms.
Evernote says that it is making the move to focus its attention more on maintaining and updating its other apps. Fortunately, it seems as though the Windows version of the app is safe and sound, including the Evernote for PC app that's available as a separate listing on the Windows Store.
In any case, if you want to continue using Evernote after June 29, you'll want to go ahead and download it from the Store now. Keep in mind, however, that new bugs will most certainly pop up as time wears on. Now might be a good time to consider moving over to OneNote with Microsoft's Evernote to OneNote importer tool.

Sometimes you just need Notepad.
Just a blank app to input text.
Try and get your head around that and you will begin to understand the runaway success of Android.
That day when a decent standalone desktop Android o/s is suddenly announced.... Pants in Seatle are going to be dirty.
1) Evernote is great for storing, catgorizing and organizing all my documents & receipts. I really WANT to use OneNote for this, but the workflow is not as intuitive as Evenote. In Onenote, I cannot tag a document with multiple descriptive categories without installing a clunky add-on package.
2) Evernote allows me to easily share a single document. In OneNote, I only have the option of sharing an entire folder (or go through the process or exporting the note out of OneNote and then emailing it).
I do love and use OneNote for what it was made for - writing notes and building my speaking presentations. I use it daily. But for me, Evernote - OneNote is mostly an apples-to-oranges comparison. Just my 2-cents.
This is why Microsoft has to Bring OFFICE to every platform to compete with brands like Evernote. People ***** about multiplatform apps, but in the end, Microsoft wins. If Office was kept in Windows Phone/Windows tablet ecosystem, other companies would have flourished. It's about time Microsoft start thinking like Google and put themselves out there. Google is a leech.
B - nope...no edit. You saw what you wanted to see, got caught making stuff up and made yourself look stupid.
C - I would never say "could CARE LESS IF IT LEAVES" because I know that the phrase is "couldn't care less". I don't care about Evernote, regardless of platform...at all. It can vanish from existence and it wouldn't affect me. I'm not sure why that bother's you so much. It just seems to put your finger on the repeat button so you can call people "fangirl" in your not very clever, sexist way.
D - The only faux "toughguy" around here is you. I am very calm and not ranting and raving and name calling like some other guy you might find in the mirror. It must be a lot of work being a full time hater. Why not just go enjoy what you enjoy and leave others to enjoy their own choices?
You won't catch me again.
There is a bit of a lag syncing in OneNote though. Since I just bought this HP Elite X3 (at a really great price), I'll stick it out with Windows 10 Phone for the next year or so.
