Are you part of the cult of Evernote? Do you use the well-known organizing app to schedule meetings, save your favorite Web pages and track of your wedding anniversary date? Do you use the program to store images and videos for work or play? If so, you’re not alone. As a recent story by BloombergBusinessweek shows, a growing number of tablet and computer users are gravitating to Evernote. And the fans of the software are anything but shy about their love for it.
According to the Bloomberg BusinessWeek story, Evernote today boasts more than 50 million users, remarkable for an app that’s only existed for five years. Even more impressive is the fact that new users are signing at a pace of 100,000 a day. That makes chief executive officer Phil Libin’s goal of reaching 1 billion users across the globe seem more realistic than farfetched.
Why the praise?
According to the BloombergBusinessweek story, Evernote currently has more than 50 million users around the world. And the number of users remains on the rise. The story says that more than 100,000 new users sign up for Evernote daily. That’s impressive. And the BloombergBusinessweek interview quotes CEO Phil Libin as saying that his goal is to soon reach 1 billion users.
Why the popularity?
And that might be the key to Evernote’s popularity. It’s easy to forget meetings, appointments and deadlines when you are juggling the responsibilities of family and work. In the BloombergBusinessweek story, Libin says that he never thinks of the work/life balance because he considers work an essential part of life. And a increasing number of us think much the same way. Consequently, when life becomes so busy and cluttered, we need something which will help us get through it productively. That something, increasingly, has become Evernote.
