When I go to the account settings, I see something like this:

Approximate notes remaining:

  • Typed notes: 20,000
  • Web clips: 270
  • Camera phone: 400
  • Audio: 39
  • High res photos: 11

Are these limitations based on the average size of the type of note[1], or are they actually limiting you based on the type of note you create?

In other words, if I'm only uploading tiny audio files (e.g. 10 KB), can I upload hundreds of them (as long as I don't go over my monthly MB limit)? Or am I actually restricted to 39 audio files no matter the size?

[1]: For example, they use a calculation such as: The average size of high res photo is 3.5MB. You have 40MB left, so 40MB / 3.5MB = about 11MB.

It is based solely on filesize.

You can upload whatever you want until you reach 40mb for the month, provided the individual files don't exceed 25mb.


Evenote states on their page that:

  • Free accounts can upload not more than 40mb / month
  • Premium accounts can upload not more than 500mb / month

Additionally you can only create some filetypes in the free version.
