Tusk is an unofficial Evernote client

The Tusk Evernote client is now available as a Snap.

We spotlighted the unofficial Evernote app last year, finding that it added to and improved on the standard Evernote web app in a number of ways.

Through the inclusion of optional themes, keyboard shortcuts, custom tweaks, a tray icon, and more, Tusk integrates the Evernote web app with the Linux desktop in ways a regular browser tab can’t.

A number of improvements have been made to the app since we first mentioned it. This includes the aforementioned addition of a Snap package plus —deep breath:

  • New & improved themes
  • Improved tray icon integration on Linux
  • Option to launch Tusk minimized
  • Option to autostart Tusk on login
  • Ability to hide the sidebar
  • Custom Shortcut Keys
  • New Log-out option
  • Pdf note exporting
  • Auto-night mode
  • Continuous note navigation
  • Markdown cheatsheet

This list reads as a decent set of improvements that help round-out the appeal of using Tusk versus Evernote in a browser tab.

Install Tusk on Ubuntu

As Tusk is available as a Snap app you can install it from the Ubuntu Snapcraft Store on Ubuntu, Fedora and any other Snap-supporting Linux distro.

sudo snap install tusk --classic

If you’re a fan of manual install methods you can download a traditional installer — available for Windows, macOS, and Linux, including a distro-agnostic AppImage — directly from the project’s Github page:
