Evernote will finally launch an official app for Linux

Evernote on Linux

Everything is in Windows operating systems. That is the only argument that I would give as positive to defend the Microsoft system: it is everything and, moreover, in many different options. Linux users, and sometimes macOS users, have to use what we find or is available, which is not always bad, but it also usually means that we do not have some official applications. That happens in Linux with the app Evernote, but this could change soon.

This was published by Ian Small, CEO of Evernote, in a blog post published a few hours ago. Ian hinted at the continued development of an official desktop client for OS based on linux, mentioning that the team is working on restructuring and migrating data to the cloud at high speed. That there will be a version for Linux is not official information, but otherwise it would be an unpleasant surprise.

Evernote on Linux? It could be a reality in 2020

In December, we released a completely redesigned version of our modern web experience to a small group of customers. And, as planned, they didn't notice. On the outside, this version is almost indistinguishable from what many of us already use on a day-to-day basis. But on the inside, its code base has been substantially revamped on top of a new library of codes that governs communication between the client and the cloud..

Without more concrete data, there are still several doubts: it is not possible to know if Evernote for Linux will arrive as a version Electron redesigned web client or an entirely new, native application. Small or someone on his team will probably give us more details in the near future.

Right now, if we want to use Evernote on Linux we have unofficial options, how to enter from the browser or a customer in a Snap package that we can see in this link. As for the browser, there are also extensions, nor the firefox ni Chrome's they are official options. An official option would improve the support and, if they create a native app, the performance would be the best we could wish for.

    Good morning! At the time I used it a lot but I haven't even smelled it for years.
    And as even above it is the typical Electron application (which are a pain in the ass!) ... turn off and let's go.

    My comment goes the same way as D. Juan's. They managed to fill me up with bandwidth and device limitations, I used it because I couldn't find an alternative, but with Joplin, who wants Evernote? The only advantage of Evernote is that it is more beautiful, the rest, all disadvantages.

    Well, I haven't used it for years…. not having a native app passes from it.
