Cache, then, could be a surprisingly important product for Microsoft—if the company commits to it, and if it can get the app just right. It’s worth noting that the Cache signup page doesn’t even mention Windows phones, just Windows PCs, Macs, iOS, Android, and “other” platforms. But many of the components of the Windows experience, most notably Cortana, now roam across third-party operating systems.
We don’t have access to Cache yet, and it’s hard to say what it will ultimately become. But we’d like to hope that Cache could evolve into the next great note-taking app, especially as Evernote transitions into a paid product.
