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:

As of June 29, 2017, we'll be discontinuing support for BlackBerry and Windows Phone. If you currently use Evernote on these platforms, you may continue to do so. Evernote, however, will no longer be available for download on these devices and we won't be making any further updates.

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.
