Evernote's new CEO Chris O'Neill is hitting the ground running. Evernote has announced they are laying off 13% of their staff world wide. And the spin off product, Evernote Food is gone.
The emphasis seems to be a needed re-focus on the core product. They have recently released a new Android version with an updated widget. Its number one feature is the ability to quickly enter a note without having to bring up the full product. That is a time saver. You can easily forget what you wanted to note in the several seconds it took for Evernote to load. Or maybe that's an age thing.
And there is a new by invitation beta out for the core Windows client featuring a more robust editor inside of the product. That has been a well requested feature for years now from users.s
Anyone in the beta? My application hasn't been accepted yet.
I'm feeling a bit more confident, but I'm still worried, as I'll talk about in a future post. I'd feel better if they stopped selling overpriced socks.
