Evernote No Longer Supporting These Three Apps

Evernote Kills Off Skitch For Windows, Android And iOS — But Retains Mac App.

Most notable is Skitch, a popular tool for annotating images that Evernote acquired in 2011. Evernote bought popular annotation app Skitch back in 2011 and, after incurring the wrath of loyal users for a series of unpopular updates, it is finally saying goodbye to it for good after announcing that it will end support for almost all versions of the service. “As part of our promise to focus on improving the core Evernote experience, we are ending support for several… standalone apps,” Evernote said in a statement.

Following the lead of Dropbox, Evernote announced on Thursday that it plans to wind down support for Skitch, the company’s drawing and annotation app. The company has announced that early next year, it’ll be discontinuing Evernote for Pebble, every version of Skitch except for the OS X app, and its Clearly web extension. “Today, you can find the most popular features from these two apps in many versions of Evernote and Web Clipper,” wrote Jack Hirsch, VP of Evernote’s desktop apps, in a blog post. “We realize fans of Clearly and Skitch may be disappointed and we don’t take these decisions lightly. Moving forward, Skitch will no longer be updated, and on January 22 it will be completely pulled from the Google Play Store, iTunes App Store and Windows Store. Evernote is also discontinuing Clearly, a Chrome browser extension that removed clutter from online articles and saved them for later reading on other devices. It was a lot like other reader services such as Pocket and Instapaper, and is similar to reader views that are now built into some browsers, including Microsoft Edge and Apple’s Safari.

Each version will continue to work for existing users but, because there is no longer a team or resources dedicated to each product, “external changes like updates to your operating system or browser may break features or functionality at any point in the future,” Evernote admitted. People with Pebble watches can find similar Evernote features with the Powernoter app.” Customers don’t just get irritated when you screw up cross-channel personalization. For those here who use these apps and need alternatives, Evernote states that they have incorporated many of the best features of Skitch and Clearly into their core applications.

As an alternative, Evernote points to the third-party Powernoter app, which is actually more useful than Evernote’s own app with the inclusion of voice notes, voice search, and Pebble Timeline support. And for everyone who actually had a use for an Evernote app on Pebble’s smartwatch, the company is steering those users towards another app called Powernoter. “We’ve got big plans for 2016 and beyond, and our goal is very straightforward: make Evernote better than ever,” said Hirsch.

Besides shutting down several other apps, including Evernote Food, Hello and Peek, the company recently laid off 18 percent of its workforce, and shut down multiple satellite offices. That’s not to say the move is without controversy; Evernote’s announcement post is already filled with angry comments from distraught users, who must now alter significant parts of their workflow.

Since Evernote is not switching off these apps, you’ll have to be wary about making external changes as these could break the apps’ functionality.
