No way to turn off the annoying animation 1/5
By Eric Y Choi
I hate the new animation that makes my cursor appear to "float" ahead of or behind the text that I'm working on. How come your Settings don't include a way to turn this feature off?? The strength of Evernote used to be it's simplicity. Ease of use and getting the job done all in one app. I'm not interested in distracting bells/whistles like cursor animation that make it more difficult to use.
I've lost data the past month using the ios app 2/5
I've been a paid user for 8 years and I have to say the ios version has never worked properly (long lag while editing notes and random freezes on ios). I've also had a support ticket in for this version in since the first week about note data corrupting other notes randomly. I've spent maybe 50 hours restructuring and trying to salvage notes from this. About 4 hours spent documenting in detail what's going on to developers that haven't been able to fix this catastrophic problem. It's like buying a car that you wake up and its parts are swapped put for other parts, then it won't start up, then it breaks down. So random. I'd rather experience that than lose info in Evernote.
For my work and me personally, my writing is one of my most valuable possessions. There isn't a way to know which notes this has affected so I simply can't use Evernote on mobile which is 75 percent of where I use it.
Please fix these issues. I'd love to update my review to five stars as I do like Evernote and have a lot invested in it.
Doesn't work on iPad 1/5
Content won't load on ipad
All platforms crashing 1/5
I am a long time user and everything is slow and crashing.
Mobile App: Super slow & crashes
Tablet App: Slow & crashes
Desktop downloadable client: Completely and utterly unusable, and crashes all the time...this is a real shame
Please figure out a way to fix this
First apparent bug 5/5
Been using Evernote free for several years and very satisfied with it. Updated it from the App Store a couple days ago. Today I made a long shopping list by adding items to the top of an existing shopping list. When I got to the store the newly added list was missing. Don't recall doing anything different from what I've always been doing.
Absolute Garbage 1/5
OK, so you have, like, a bunch of nifty features (most of which I don't have a use for,) but have you thought of trying to make syncing across devices/users actually work? I don't even need it to be as sleek as google docs (where edits show up in real time for other devices/users) I'd just like a place to store notes that doesn't randomly just lose entire sessions worth of entries/edits.
Went from so far so good ➡️to bad so sad 2/5
I can see now after 5+ years I'm probably going to have to give up on Evernote.
Unclickable links in too many of my emailed notes, missing emailed/newsletter notes (why have the feature if you cannot get the feature to work correctly after all these years?), inability to move/delete multiple or bulk notes(imagine having to sort through and move/delete thousands of notes created at many different times), inability to read or edit notes on web browser versions. Will be back to add more......
(Original Review 5Yrs Ago)
This is just what I needed for everything from personal journal entries to school notes. This is currently one of my favorite most useful apps
My only complaint is the inability to manually sort my notebooks to my own desired order. My iPhone version automatically sorts my notebooks according to original settings, I'd like the iPad version to do the same.
does not sync 1/5
this app used to be great. now, wasted money.
Conflicting Modification 1/5
Makes the app totally inefficient! I want to be able to use the app on two devices and the data doesn't sync. How stupid is that.
Still a Great App but some of the changes are frustrating 5/5
Easy and extremely useful however one upon a time if I made a list with the "check box" once I was done checking off said items there was an option to delete all the Line items which had been checked off. This feature has been removed for quite some time, I'm not sure why. This simple option was quite helpful & time efficient. Now I have to go Line item by line item to remove those which were checked. It is quite annoying especially when there is an extra long "to do" or grocery list. PLEASE please bring this back. I honestly don't know why it was ever removed.
Where is presentation mode? 1/5
I use Evernote everyday and suddenly presentation mode (which I pay for) is gone.
By Scarlett Pimpernal
I have a brand new iPad Pro 12.9. Evernote is frozen, completely unresponsive, even after several restarts. Hopefully someone is working on this.
I am happy to report that Evernote is now unfrozen on my iPad. Thank you!
After the recent update, it keeps crashing. Cannot log in now
Can't share notebook... 3/5
My husband gave me permission to his notebook but it won't open in the app. It just says "couldn't find note." Smh.
This version slow and buggy 1/5
I have been a paying Evernote user for almost a decade. The app used to be top-of-class. But the current version often takes minutes to start up, freezes in the middle of typing or searches, and needs rebooting multiple times per day. It defeats the entire purpose of an efficient note taking app if I'm in the middle of meeting and my note-taking app freezes. Evernote team: get your act together quickly; otherwise soon it will be time to take my business elsewhere.
Need I say more 2/5
I'm coming back to Evernote after 2 years away. I love it despite the clear mistakes it has made in the past. It's UI is amazing and OCR search is wonderful. However the iOS app on the iPad consistently freezes up and won't work. On the iPhone it's ok, but on my iPad Pro I can't use Evernote.
Poor performance 1/5
IPad app is painfully slow. Takes 5 seconds or more for a note to load. New features are buggy. For example, the search functions sometimes stalls, or else pulls up "no results" even though there are notes that clearly match the criteria. Performance seems to be getting worse with every update. I am starting to transition to OneNote.
Needs Work 3/5
Placing the cursor into table columns to the right is not possible in this version
Images need a "Make thumbnail" option 4/5
The app works for me, but I can't believe it still doesn't have a simple "make thumbnail" right-click menu option for images. Instead, notes with multiple images apparently use some wacky algorithm to determine which image to use as the thumbnail in the note list. This is an obvious fix!
Bloated and full of bugs. This app needs to be re-written from scratch, and it will be done without my (expensive) subscription, I'm afraid.
So disappointed 1/5
I just upgraded to the highest level of Evernote service, just in time for the Evernote for iPad app (iPad Pro) to crash literally every time I load the app. Restart the iPad, restart the app-tried it all. Ridiculous.
Decent for notes, but somehow lacking obvious features 2/5
I need a note app that lets me actually format my text. I need font options and unlimited color options. I don't see a way to change the typeface inside the app so I'm going to use something else. I understand this isn't important to everyone but it's very important to me.
Evernote - Now Unbelievably Slow 2/5
Still Evernote, just incredibly frustrating with how slow the app is to start up. On my iPhone 6 it takes about 30 seconds before I can do anything at all. I've been a long-time user but if this doesn't get fixed I'm going to have to find a new way to store and take notes.
By Dr MMK
This review is for evernote on iPAD.
Completely unreliable , once I updated the app to the latest edition , I started having problems.I can't crop images and when I search for a note by a specific tag , I can't find it though I can find it on my laptop. I have the premium subscription and Evernote really messed up the latest update , it used to be much better and reliable.
Apple Pencil not working 1/5
By Paul's Doll
VERY frustrating and need help! I created a real cool presentation using the pencil with photos and voice. When I logged out of the project and back in, I switched the keyboard to use the pencil....it opened up a BLANK sheet and I could not edit my original project. I spent a lot of wasted time on this. Am I missing something here?
Slow and bloated 2/5
I'm a die hard Evernote fan that got everyone using the app but now it's cluttered, incredible slow and bloated with features I never use. I am looking for an alternative app that will take the place of Evernote. It is too slow and I can't waste my time waiting for it to search only to crash. What happened to the simple days with simple functionality?
Ive used Evernote for 6 years but 1/5 stars 1/5
By Schnark Buckerbird
This app freezes like crazy! Writing this review on the app store is a way more effective way to document anything than this app. Evernote has gone downhill. Writing lists and notes in evernote is now a chore. It's too slow to work often times
From incompetent merging problems where my documents would be duplicated 10 times simply because two devices have the same document that is not being changed at the same time.
It's just a shame that I took all of my notes on a horrible service like Nevernote.
Edit: they have still not fixed the problem where notes don't sync or duplicate. Ditch evernote.
Good concept, poor implementation 2/5
I pay for the annual subscription and use it quite a bit but I'm still surprised that performance is so so. I have IPad Pro and it crashes and freezes on it, it's also pretty slow on IPad and my android phone. I don't know it it's servers or what. I use it because I have to but I am considering not to renew my subscription next year because of performance. I also miss presentation mode.
Unable to sync 4/5
In my iPad, it always show the information of 'unable to sync'. Is this a bug?
Make sure iOS is running properly 5/5
By adrian and christine
Make sure iOS is running properly on your phone. Evernote is still running smoothly on mine. If you are noticing the phone running into issues make sure you have at least over one GB available in storage. If you want to run a simple test. Make a back up of your iPhone. Then erase it and set up as new. Re download Evernote just to see if it works. If you aren't running into trouble then the old back up may be the issue.
Evernote 2-Device Max for Basic is Very Limiting 3/5
By Applestar tech
I really like Evernote, but I wish the basic (free edition) would allow more than 2 devices (at least 3 would be good). It was better before when I could access it via other devices. The 2-device limit is very restrictive. I currently can only have it on my tablet and phone. It would be great to be able to access it on the computer, too, so I can use my printer to print documents.
going in the wrong direction 2/5
Evernote used to be one of the favorite apps in my workflow because it just worked. Now crashes, corrupted notes and slow response times have me looking for alternatives. What the heck happened, Evernote?
Buggy, optimistic they'll work through it 3/5
Evernote customer support was able to address my issues, I'll update my review when it stabilizes.
I love it. 5/5
By Allan T.
I can safely say this makes my life easier. Thanks
Incredibly disappointing 1/5
I have been a paid user of Evernote since day one. The UI and features just get more and more unreliable. I am wondering when to give up and just move to something else. Formatting on ipad is worthless. They obviously didn't test on an iPad Pro with a keyboard. You put in bullets, and they overwrite the text. You'd thing being a paid user there would be support. But there isn't. Sad to see a great app die.
Constant crashing upon start 1/5
The redesign has been awful. App crashes on loading, just hangs there. Makes it almost useless as a note taking app. Longtime premium user looking elsewhere as a result.
The watch version crashes every time! 1/5
I use this for work and I can't afford to deal with this anymore. Since it's not reliable, I have to find something else.
The latest version locks up every time 1/5
Evernote is my favorite app -- but the current version is extremely slow and locks up during almost every use. I have to force close it and restart--every time. Please fix!!
Gonna Switch 1/5
I've used Evernote for years but it's latest decisions just don't sit well with me. Not being able to use Evernote on more than two devices is a big deal to me, and having expensive tiered subscriptions for just a note taking app is a hard pill to swallow for students.
WAY TOO SLOW NOW 2/5
Used to be my trusted everything app. Multiple notes including class work, photos from articles read, saving passwords, everything. Free version decreased authorized devices to two--no big deal. But notes automatically create hyperlinks I cannot remove, there is no "undo" if you accidentally delete something important, iOS spell check (which you cannot shut off for this specific app) edits as you type (and I don't want it to), and has no useable ability to efficiently edit notes either web or desktop. Can't cut and paste onto a word doc and takes so much time to load if you hold your breath you will die. Once loaded, takes even longer to scroll. This has been bad the last 2+ years with all of the updates, unchanged. It's time to move on. Multiple online forums with same unsolved complaints. Nevernote it is.
And no new features.
Super fast now!! 5/5
I think the new look is a much needed facelift! Its much to faster and easier to get thoughts down
What happened?! 3/5
What happened, Evernote?! I haven't been able to open it on my iPad in three days now. The screen freezes and then it crashes. I've deleted and reinstalled it, but that didn't help. It's working on my iPhone.
A series of updates making it worse 1/5
Getting harder and harder to use Evernote. When using on iPad now getting very frequent episodes of app freezing. Need to reset frequently and if use for an extended period more problems. Would be great if they would stop adding bells and whistles which are bloating the program.
Complement to Full Version with Faults 3/5
This app is a generally sound complement to the full PC or Mac version. The interface is somewhat stilted, and editing notes is not as easy as in the full version. There is a major problem, however. Evernote frequently fails to sync properly, and produces conflicting versions of such improperly synced notes. There is no good reason for this, and the developer needs to solve this problem promptly.
Leaving Evernote for good this time 1/5
By Snoozing Dogs
Left a few times before and came back because there were no alternatives. The latest update has left my iPad Pro frozen and unresponsive. I'm unable to access my data, and that makes this a waste of space on my ipad and a waste of time to use. I'm going to shift to Google Keep, because at least that's reliable.
iPAD version is useless 1/5
I pay for a premium plan and generally have no issues using the app on my computer and phone, but the iPAD version freezes up on me literally every single time I use it. It's too unreliable to use for anything important such as work projects, and I hardly see the sanity in paying good money too keep tabs on family matters when there are dozens of other apps that do that just fine as well.
For the sake of me eyeballs please bring back the dark theme 3/5
I love love LOVE this app. But it's painful on my eyes staring at this white screen especially at night which is when I do most of my Evernote organizing. Please please on everything incorporate a dark theme into the layout. I know for a fact I'm not the only one!
Missing a critical button when forwarding 3/5
By Dead Write
On my iPhone, I frequently forward items to Evernote directly from another app, such as my camera or Safari. The window that comes up for this function lacks any way to enter a reminder date.
So I have to go to Evernote itself to enter a reminder date.
