Latest news about Evernote and Trello:



10.01.17. Atlassian acquired Trello. Atlassian has acquired project management service Trello for $425 million. Just like with many of Atlassian’s other acquisitions, the company plans to keep both the Trello service and brand alive and current users shouldn’t see any immediate changes. With Trello, Atlassian is acquiring one of the fastest growing project management services. It now has about 19 million users. Trello brings more productivity to individual and team projects. It shows all of the projects from the entire team in a single glance. Assigning projects is easy, just put them in the assigned person’s or team’s list and when completed drag it to the completed list. Each “card” or task can be commented on and links can be added. Trello works across multiple devices and uploads files from Dropbox or Google Drive.



24.08.16. Trello makes its Power-Ups available to free users. Project management service Trello made its Power-Ups (third-party integrations) available to all of its users, including those who are on the service’s free tier. Until now, only paying users were able to use this feature, which includes integrations with products like SurveyMonkey, join.me, Github and Slack, among many others. Free users were restricted to using three very basic Power-Ups: Calendar for seeing Trello’s calendar view, Card Aging for slowly fading out cards as they age, and Voting for (you guessed it) adding a voting option to cards. Besides, Trello is launching integrations with Intercom, Github Enterprise and Screenful. Trello itself is also launching two new Power-Ups itself: custom fields for users who want to be able to create new data fields and visual cues for their cards, as well as a Card Repeater that allows you to set intervals for repeating tasks. With Card Repeater, you can set up Trello to automatically create copies of certain cards for recurring tasks like expense report due dates. This feature is currently only available as a public beta, though, and admins will have to request access to it.



05.07.16. Evernote limits free plan to 2 devices and raises prices. Note-taking app Evernote introduced new pricing policy. The Basic plan remains free, but is now limited to only two devices. That might be sufficient for the average user — Evernote likely wouldn’t deliberately rankle a majority of their free users — but it’s still a considerable limitation. The addition of the passcode lock feature to Basic helps soften the blow, though. Plus, which was $3 per month, now costs $4 (or $35 per year), while Premium went from $6 to $8 per month, or $70 per year. You get 1GB and 10GB, respectively, in those plans, and the specifics of what’s offered (too much to list here) can be found at the Evernote site.



17.05.16. Evernote unveiled new Windows app. Evernote has unveiled a major update of its desktop client for Windows users. The new release provides another user interface revamp and some new features. Notebooks and tags can now be directly accessed, created and deleted from the left-hand pane, which can be minimized to free up screen real-estate elsewhere. Users also gain the ability to define notebooks and tags by color (right-click to do this) for easier identification in the left-hand pane. Business account users now see their personal and business notes visually separated out, with the ability to choose what’s displayed. Mixed note lists have been dropped. Keyboard shortcuts make it quick and easy to toggle between personal and business mode. The new version also comes with the promise of increased stability and performance - search in particularly runs much quicker.



26.01.16. Trello launched platform for developers. Project management tool Trello is opening its Power-Ups Platform to developers who want to integrate their services with Trello. Launch partners for Trello’s new developer platform include the likes of SurveyMonkey, Zendesk, join.me and Giphy. In total, Trello currently features about 22 add-ons in its directory. For Trello users, having access to these third-party tools directly inside the service means they won’t have to switch context quite as often to perform some routine tasks and will be able to automate more of their workflow inside of Trello. It’s worth noting that Trello has long had an API that gave developers access to some of Trello’s features from inside their own apps. With the new platform, though, developers can directly integrate certain features into the Trello user interface.



20.10.15. Project management service Trello adds tracking USPS, UPS, FedEx and others. Project management service Trello launched a new feature that brings shipping and tracking data from UPS, USPS, FedEx, OnTrac and LaserShip right into Trello cards. That’s a nifty little feature for existing Trello users, given that it now allows them to easily track their shipments in real time right from their project management tool. This means a small business could now use the service to easily track the progress of their shipments and as their status changes from in-transit to delivered, the card will automatically change colors from yellow to green (or to red when the shipment is delayed). Trello recently launched its revamped business offering, which includes a number of other third-party integrations, too. Like Atlassian, Trello is clearly looking to expand outside of the developer niche that first adopted the service.



17.09.15. Trello launched revamped business version. Project management service Trello launched  a revamped version of its business offering that introduces new features like third-party integrations with tools like Slack, GitHub and Salesforce. These new integrations — called Power-Up by Trello — will make life quite a bit easier for Trello users going forward. While you have long been able to connect Slack and Trello, for example, the new integration now lets you tell Trello to remind you of a card on one of your Trello boards in a few hours and then Slack will pop up a reminder later in the day. The previous integration only allows you to get an update in Slack when there was basic activity on your Trello cards, lists and boards. Similarly, the GitHub integration now allows you to see relevant details from GitHub (commit messages, pull requests, etc.) right on a Trello card that’s updated in real time. Other supported services include  Box, Google Drive, Google Hangouts, Dropbox, Twitter, Evernote, Salesforce, Mailchimp, Help Scout and appear.in.



01.08.15. Trello launched enterprise version with single sign-on support. Trello, the kanban-style project management app launched its enterprise service today. Trello already offered paid tiers for individuals and businesses, but enterprises obviously have slightly different requirements from startups and small teams that may or may not have gotten IT’s permission to use the service. So in addition to all the standard paid business features (permissions, membership control, etc.), the enterprise tier includes features like single sign-on support and intrusion detection. With the new single sign-on support, Trello users can integrate their existing Okta, OneLogin or other SAML-based login systems to use the service. The company’s regular business accounts are only integrated with Google Apps. In addition, the new paid tier includes phone and email support, as well as guaranteed file encryption at rest. Enterprise users will also get dedicated account managers.



01.11.14. Evernote rolls out built-in chat. Online note-taking and collaboration service Evernote has rolled out a new “Work Chat” feature to its web and mobile applications which allows users to discuss ideas and projects directly in the Evernote interface itself, instead of having to shift those conversations over to email. Additionally, when you email a note to someone, it will now show up in Work Chat automatically, allowing you to keep a permanent history of your communications. You can chat with either just one person, or a group, and you can optionally sync the app with your Google Contacts, too. When you start a chat with another user, they’re notified both in the app and via an email message that informs them of the chat and offers a button which, when clicked, launches Evernote.



07.10.14. Evernote unveiled AI tool and new web interface. The most popular note-taking Evernote wants people not just keep using its app to store notes and thoughts regularly, but to use it for ever more purposes: it’s launching Evernote Context — an AI play that will see it surfacing and suggesting new content to you from third party sources as you read and write. This will mean adding a new content feed from third party sources that will appear within Evernote, alongside and relevant to the work that you are doing within the app, wether you are on desktop or another client. Also Evernote unveiled new web app that uses a lot more white space throughout the interface, leaving you with a much cleaner workspace that doesn’t draw your eye to past notes as you add new ones to the same extent as you’d fine the native desktop app.



19.09.14. Collaboration tool Trello hits 5 million users. Online project and task-management service Trello announced that it now has more than 5 million users. Functioning much like a visual to-do list, Trello shows what needs to be done, and what is happening at various stages of a project or assignment. The core Trello product is available for free, but it also offers Trello Gold as an option for users who want to take advantage of bigger file uploads, stickers, custom backgrounds and custom emoji support. There is also a Business Class offering for teams that want more granular control over logins, bulk-data exports and administrative-level controls. Still, most of the 5 million Trello users use the free version, and the company hasn't made a big push to convert users into paying customers.



12.05.14. Evernote and LinkedIn integrate business cards into social network. Business card scanning apps were already on the market for some time (i.e. Evernote). They rescue business people from card-full wallets, but don't solve another problem: contacts may change over time. Fortunately, this problem is solved by social networks (especially LinkedIn), where people update their own contact information, and it's automatically updated in their friends' address books. A few days ago LinkedIn integrated with Evernote. Now you just make a photo of business card and your smartphone immediately shows you the person's LinkedIn profile.  You're then given the option to connect with that CEO, secretary or digital prophet on LinkedIn or add their contact info to your address book. However, things get interesting as your business relationship blossoms. Over time, you can add things like audio from a meeting, documents, or even key emails with him or her to the card's page in Evernote.



2013. Evernote Business 2.0: intranet social network + Salesforce integration. Evernote has launched the new version of its business edition - Evernote Business 2.0. As usual the business version (unlike the personal) allows to create shared (corporate) notebooks and pages that are suitable for collaboration (for example, creating plans, projects , ...) or storing knowledge (instructions , documents ... ), useful for business. In the new version on top of this content layer Evernote started to build a social network. It added user profiles with pictures. When you open your collegue's profile, you can see the notes she works with. Also, when you are looking for something in the corporate notebooks, Evernote provides not only found pages, but also people who may be experts in this question (that frequently use this word in their notebooks). Shared notebooks are now like communities. You can join them or invite your colleagues to notebook.



2013. Evernote adds reminders. One of the main functions that IT apps should perform for us - is offloading our memory and reminding us where and what we wanted to do. Perhaps the most popular reminder for businessmen and executives is Google Calendar. But now, you can also use the online notebook Evernote for this purpose. For each note in Evernote you can set a reminder, and on the given day the service will send you the email notification (or pop-up the message on the screen of your mobile device). Reminders are also displayed at the top of the notes list. This feature is already available in the online version and iPhone/iPad apps. The update to the Android-app is coming soon.



2013. Trello introduced Business Class version. Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. It's used by thousands businesses and to meet theit demand, Trello is launching the Business version, that enables that extra control of the collaboration space. It features all the power of a Trello organization plus extra features like Google Apps integration, extra administrative controls for boards and members, one-click bulk data export, and a new, view-only observer role. Business Class gives administrators more control over your organization. With Business Class, you can connect your Trello organization to your business’s Google Apps account. On the Members page, you’ll see who in your organization has an account. If they aren’t in the organization yet, you will be able to add them with a single click. Since there are no member limits, you never have to worry about paying more for each new member.



2013. Android for business: Google adds offline translater, Evernote - document scanner. Android gets two more useful features that business users will like for sure. First, it the offline mode in the Google Translate app. Because the translator is often needed when you travel abroad. At the same time in other country you often can't access mobile Internet. But now it's possible to download needed language databases and use the powerful Google's translator offline. And the Evernote for Android has added specialized camera mode for documents. It defines the boundaries of the sheet, eliminates shadows and adjusts the contrast, thus optimizing the text for OCR. Note that for now Evernote doesn't return the OCR-document in the text format, but allows you to search this document by the text it contains. In addition, in the free Evernote version the time of document recognition may take several days.



2012. Evernote to launch Business version. Сервис Evernote Business will be a useful tool for small companies enabling super-simple information sharing: notes, plans, drafts, pictures, files, etc. Moreover, employees who already have a personal Evernote account will be able to use it for business-purposes also. All personal records will remain personal and noone can access them. While the records saved into business notebooks will be available for co-workers and can be collaboratively edited (business account administrator will configure access rights to business notebooks). In addition, all employees that are added to business account will get all benefits of the Evernote's premium plan (versions history, offline access, 1 GB of data upload pet month). Administrator will pay for all users. Recall the price of the premium plan is $5/month (but maybe they'll give discounts for the business version). The service will be available in December.



2011. Evernote Hello - pesonal CRM in your notebook. Recently we told about CardCloud, the service that offers electronic business cards instead of boring and outdated traditional cards. But now the note-taking service Evernote invented even better solution. The free iPhone app Evernote Hello will not only allow you to remember the people that you met at business meeting or conference, but also link them to the notes you have taken during these meetings. It works like this: after talking with someone you take your iPhone, launch Evernote Hello and ask this person to enter his contacts (or you can enter them yourself from his words). Then you can take a picture of this person (or he can do it himself). If he enters the email, the app will automatically send him your electronic card.


Evernote
2011. Evernote finally gets a normal Web app. After the closure of Google Notebook, Evernote actually became the most popular online notebook. Even having such strong competitors like Zoho Notebook and MS OneNote. The main advantage of Evernote is that it's available everywhere as a native app: on Windows, Mac, Android, iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Palm, Windows Mobile, as a plug-in for browsers. Of course, the global access to an online notebook, including offline access, is extremely important to users. But the web-client of Evernote was the main reason why the majority of Google Notebook users preferred to stay with it (even after closure) and not move to Evernote. Today Evernote finally has released a normal Web-based app with a convenient interface (like in Outlook). In addition, the web-engine has been completely rewritten and now it works really fast.
