In May we took part in the BEW Hackathon dedicated to finding new ways to improve the Evernote platform. EV, won first prize and received a trip to Silicon Valley to take part in the Evernote DevCup. We excited to report that against stiff competition from around the world EV was awarded 3rd place with the DevCup Bronze! That’s not all! EV was not the only winner from May’s BEW Hackathon; a fellow finalist Spotwish, won the coveted Peoples Choice Award!
EV enables mobile phone users to use Evernote via SMS, a sought after feature that means Evernote is now available to all users, irrespective of what mobile they have. This means that Evernote is now accessible to the billions of SMS capable phones around the world, which is key for the success of Evernote in emerging markets like Brazil or China where 94% of devices are not smartphones. It’s often said that an app is never really finished, as there is always new functionality to add. The developers of EV are already looking to enhance the platform by enabling MMS, enabling users to add pictures, videos, sound and a whole new world of possibilities for users. And EV developer Roberto is now participating in the Techcrunch Disrupt Hackathon in 2 weeks in San Francisco.
