    hey Niko Waesche, the Kindle Fire runs Android, unclear if you know that from listening to this audio program. Also, Evernote is in the Amazon Android App Store accessible from the website or directly on the kindle itself. A little more understanding of what you're talking about would help make you sound believable.

    Hello James Lopez,

    you are absolutely right. Evernote runs on Android. What I should have made more clear in the interview is that Apple benefitted tremendously from thousands of compelling apps, many of which were first available on iOS. Evernote has profited immensely from Apple and Apple from Evernote. While Android is ramping up in terms of software on its Marketplace, the benefits are not only going to Amazon. In my view, Amazon's Fire ecosystem is (still) mainly a media-only play.

    - Niko.
