Evernote removes file type restrictions for free accounts

    Life is a rather complicated thing, so we like to simplify it whenever possible. In this regard, we are pleased to announce that we have made it easier to work with file attachments for users of free accounts. As you may recall, a free account previously allowed you to post only text, images, audio, and PDF files in notes. Now there are no such restrictions, owners of both free and premium accounts can use any type of attachment in notes. Everything is simple.

    Adding Files to Evernote
    A good time to remind you of how you can add files to your account. This feature is supported by almost any version of Evernote.

    Desktop clients and the web version of Evernote
    • Mac: drag a file into a note, onto the Evernote icon in the dock or the icon in the menu, or select File> Attach File .
    • Windows: drag and drop the file into notepad or note, or right-click in the note and select Attach Files ...
    • Web client: go to edit notes, then drag the file to its title or click on the paper clip icon.

    Mobile Clients

    • BlackBerry: on the home screen, click on File .

    Keep track of the monthly quota.
    We have removed the restrictions so that it is more convenient for our users to store all related information in one place in a clear and searchable form. However, it is worth considering that the maximum note size and the available monthly volume for downloading files are still different for regular and premium accounts.
    • Free account holders can create notes up to 25 megabytes in size and upload up to 60 megabytes of content each month.
    • For premium subscribers, the maximum note size is up to 50 megabytes, and the monthly amount of notes downloaded is 1 gigabyte.

    We are pleased that this innovation will allow much more users to use Evernote effectively. Meanwhile, many new features are already in the works, including those that will be available only to premium users. Learn more about premium account features here .
