# Installing Alternote
Both standalone and AppStore versions are identical except for that standalone version gets new versions updates earlier because it doesn’t have to go through Apple reviewal proccess.
# First Launch
After the first launch you’ll be asked to authorize Alternote to your Evernote account. We don’t have access to your login and password. You can restrict access for Alternote at any time.
Once you’ll do that, Alternote will need some time to fetch your data. If you have more than 1000 notes in your account, you’ll be prompted to choose notebooks to sync. We advise to sync no more than 3-5k notes with Alternote.
