Evernote Expects Me to Pay Double Suddenly, I Will Not

Things go up in price, I get it. Between inflation and the general costs of operating a service, a price will sometimes need to be increased. Microsoft/Xbox Game Pass is raising its price a couple bucks a month. People are upset and I also dislike it but I understand and it isn't an absurd change. Then you've got Evernote, which decided to tell me they were going to basically double the price for me to use their app from $70 to $130. A 100% price increase sucks. If we were talking about raising the price by $10 for the year I could maybe understand, but when you go slap with me such an absurd price hike I'm not going to take part in that. Before my Evernote subscription renews at the end of July I plan to find another service (I've been testing some other sites and apps out), import my notes to my new selection, and be done with it. This is not a decision I take lightly as I've been using Evernote for years. Double the price, however? To quote the great Randy Jackson back in the heyday of American Idol, "It's a no from me, dawg." It's a dated reference, but it works.
