We’ve mentioned Evernote, the notes-and-clippings web service that aspires to be your longterm memory, before. As of today, they’ve finally opened the service to the public – no more waiting for a beta invitation to arrive. Free accounts can upload a maximum of 40MB of data for storage every month, while premium accounts ($5/month or $45/year) get 500MB of monthly allowance. That may seem generous, but given that one of their big selling points is recognizing text in image data, 40MB may go faster than you expect.
Other changes at launch include a new version of the Web Clipper bookmarket and a redesign of the site’s user interface. Client versions of Evernote continue to be available for Windows, OS X, and Windows Mobile. The service is still marked as beta, but now it’s a beta that anyone can try.
