Evernote launches its PC desktop app in the Windows Store

As promised, Evernote has launched its regular PC desktop app in the Windows Store for Windows 10 users. The app is the same Win32 version that has been available for some time. but is now distributed via the Store.

Evernote previously revealed in late July that it would be launching the desktop app in the Windows Store on August 2, but apparently the app was not ready to go live until today. The desktop app was likely converted to be distributed to the Windows Store via Microsoft's "Project Centennial" Desktop App Converter tools.

The desktop app is replacing the older Evernote Touch for Windows 8 and 10 users. In late July, the company stated:

We are focusing on our commitment to invest in new features and functionality in our core apps. Evernote Touch was designed as a companion app to Evernote for Windows, and is not meant to be a full-featured version of Evernote. Evernote for Windows offers an extensive set of capabilities in addition to what Evernote Touch offers, including mouse and keyboard support.

Windows Phone owners will still be able to access their own version of Evernote in the Windows Store.
