Crashes multiple times per day 3/5
I’m a heavy Evernote user and like the service a lot, but the iOS app crashes on me at least 3-4 times per day where it’ll freeze, crash, and then I’ll need to reopen it to continue working.
App is very slow to load
Good so far 4/5
So far I’m enjoying the app but why isn’t my keyboard dark when I’m using the app in dark mode??
So helpful 5/5
By Cold Sassy
I have been learning Evernote and what a game changer! I am so much more organized. Every time I use it I learn something new.
Really pushing their premium service. 3/5
I switched to Evernote because I liked the UI and I wanted to keep my recipe book all in one place with a really nice tagging system so I can easily index all of the recipes. Evernote does this the best out of any service I’ve used before. UI and design is really important to me, so that’s what drew me to the program, and I can even quickly and easily import new recipes. However, I’m on Basic, and as soon as I hit the image cap, the bright red ‘not syncing’ banner comes up on my recipes, and can’t be permanently dismissed. I can’t get rid of the red exclamation points in the corners of my notes, or prevent it from prompting me to update literally any time I open a note. This is incredibly annoying and ruins the entire purpose of switching for me. If they stop pushing their premium service so hard onto people who really only need Basic, this review will be changed to 5 stars.
The Best, Also The Worst 2/5
It’s the only app that can do everything it does. And it does it well.
So, let’s have end-to-end encryption for whole notes with on-device OCR processing if necessary (it can be done, with indexing also stored encrypted on Evernote servers), and update this terrible iOS app so it can at least create note links (not public links), change fonts, make better use of tables, and generally upgrade the whole usability experience on iOS.
Also, why not document how things work for the end user? For example, did you know that you can grab multiple notes and add a tag to all of them, but only if that tag is already applied to a note in the current notebook/view? Well I learned that by accident. You can also drag multiple notes to a different notebook, but only if you expand its notebook stack before picking up the notes with your finger in their notebook. Did you know that? I haven’t seen any iOS touch tutorials and think it’d be a great idea. I can’t understand why the interface has so many odd flashes and glitches when doing these actions, and wish Evernote would pay more attention to even those aesthetic details. Why not allow selecting multiple notes to add multiple tags and move them to a different notebook in one sweep, like you can on the desktop version?
On MacOS, you can open multiple Evernote windows, as well as multiple individual notes. We need more ability to work with multiple notes in iOS.
With tables, Evernote needs a basic calculation function for summarizing data.
There are also sync issues on iOS devices. At the end of each day, I recommend ensuring all of your notes synced up, and that your total note counts match each other. I’ve had many orphaned notes, and don’t even want to think about what I may have lost due to these glitches. (I’m lowering my review to two stars, instead of 3, because of this.)
I spend all day on my iPad and Evernote, and would appreciate some updates. It’s my favorite ecosystem on the desktop, especially the MacOS version, and I love its third-party integrations with services like IFTTT, etc., but this iOS app needs major usability upgrades and Evernote itself is due for polishing. I pay for the full premium subscription and have been for several years, because I get enormous value out of this application. However, PLEASE invest some time into updating this iOS app. Thanks!
Horrible. Period. 1/5
It has some many bugs, horrible user experience and very annoying editing. I’m looking for a way to migrate my out of Evernote.
I updated to the latest version and now it does not even respond when I open the app; I need to kill it and restart to get over this.
My advice: use Notability or something else.
Crashing on iPhone 6s iOS 12.1.4 1/5
I can’t use Evernote on my phone anymore. Immediate crash on open. Extremely inconvenient as I keep a bunch of on-the-go notes on it. What could the problem be?
Doesn't respect you as a paying customer 1/5
Acts like an advertisement instead of a note taking app. I've tried for years to work with it but it locks your notes into it's increasingly irritating ecosystem and has no respect for your personal settings. Don't know how many times I've turned context off. I want to open a note and write, not set the app up again every time I need it.
I feel like I I fell in to a scam
I agreed for a free trial only to realize I can only cancel after I paid for the first month
Cannot drop unused device sync!!! 1/5
By Fun and addictive!!!
Cannot drop unused device sync, keep telling me to pay for service, cannot stop the pop out every second! Very bad user experience!
Unsync glitch 3/5
I tried to unsync Evernote from my windows device but every time I unsync it, the “SYNC DEVICES” thing pops right back up, not allowing me to access my notes even though I’ve unsynced it from my third device. Sooo Bear it is.
Uselessly slow 2/5
Three minutes ago, I created a notebook. Then I hit the plus button to create a new note.
Why am I still waiting to be able to enter that note? Why can’t I just enter a note when I think of it, without having to wait for an app to spin its wheels for three minutes? Is this actually supposed to help my productivity? What a terrible product.
The desktop version’s web clipper is the sole reason this gets more than one star, and the only reason I don’t cancel my subscription entirely. This app obviously doesn’t care about its users. Complaining in the online support Forums is useless, it’s just a way to vent and then get ignored by the company.
Once I can find something that does web clipping, I will happily delete Evernote from all my devices I never pay them a penny again. The apps are too slow, too buggy, and just not usable.
Crashes a lot 2/5
By Adrian Chan 0000
In the last six months or so, I have experienced a lot of crashing when using the app on iPhone X. Is there a special reason?
Needs native pencil support 1/5
By Bion Howard
Why do we need to use so many side apps to do handwriting with Apple Pencil?
We need to select the language 2/5
By Moaze Shtiwe
Hello I wanna to select the language the I prefer
And you useing another language in my phone
I don't wanna change my phone setting language to changes in the app
I will put 5 stars if the problem resolve
Good, but I would like to see a mobile capability 4/5
I am no a power user, but even in my limited use I have encountered one daily frustration, the inability to creat Tags from mobile Apps. Many of my entries have no Tags because I haven’t gotten back to them on my iMac.
If this capability exists, let me know.
It was fine until their update. 3/5
I have used evernote for two years.
And it's been 5 stars until the last month.
They updated it and now it keeps asking me to sign up and pay.
It will stop what I'm doing and tell me to stop. I am finding a new note keeper and transferring out.
Undo and Redo button PLEASE 4/5
I'll be happy to give this one a five star if you ever add in a button for undo and redo. Currently if you shake the phone it will offer you an undo but that method is cumbersome. If I have to do a couple of undo it's a pretty slow method. Also on my older phone the accelerometer isnt working half the time so it's super frustrating to undo
Other than my complaint with the undo / redo, I absolutely LOVE this app. The extra fee helps keep this app alive and pays for the developers to add new features. I completely understand the need to charge for a service. I use this app on a daily basis for everything. I've used other note taking app alternative but none comes close to what you offer in terms of ease of use and simplicity.
Great App 4/5
I have used Evernote for several years now. It is my go-to for all my note taking for work, home, and everything else. It is great because I can access it on my iPad, iPhone, and my office computer.
Lately, however, I have had issues with Evernote on my iPad. When I open the app, more often than not it is frozen, which really puts me at a disadvantage when I need to take notes in a meeting at work as I do not usually lug around my laptop from meeting to meeting (yes, my organization still likes to meet in person). This has just started happening in the last week or so.
Like so many things I rely on, when Evernote is working, it is great, however, when it doesn’t it is a real problem.
PLEASE FIX 1/5
I love Evernote. Been using it since 2012, but for some reason ever since the last update i cant seem to open the app it keeps closing immediately. Super frustrating. I have to keep resorting to the browser version on my laptop. Made sure my iOS version was up to date, deleted the app and reinstalled, but still doesnt work. Please fix asap.
iPad app very unhelpful to the blind! 2/5
I have been a premium user for 7 years and have repeatedly reported problems using voiceover with Evernote. The customer service for Evernote is extremely subpar. In fact, with the latest version, I am unable to submit a support ticket. That’s a nice trick. Obviously, I will not be renewing my subscription when it ends this year.
Nice app, but iOS on iPad freezes 3/5
I’m a paying customer, so it irritates me when my iPad screen continues to freeze without any way to unfreeze it. When it works, it’s a tool that helps me to organize and stay productive. But when it doesn’t...
Найкращий блокнот з різноманітними функціями 5/5
Головне і дуже важливе, що без реклами!!!
Pushes to buy its Paid service 1/5
Locked in a loop to pay for service after disconnected extra device. It is not worth the price asked, not for me. Not a clean look for usage and confusing layout.
Device Management Broken 3/5
Trying to get a new phone logged into an existing account. Revoking access to previous device fails to work, both in app and on website. Can’t even use the basic service.
Update: Had to revoke PC to get the changes to take effect. Btw the new phone was the same physical device as before but with different name.
Allow sort by Tags 2/5
I’ve used Evernote since 2012 but am very disappointed with the current version. Grouping notes by Tags made it easy to find the one I want. Locating a note by the first letter of the heading is not as useful.
Please restore the ability to group and sort by Tags.
Poor customer service 1/5
I am locked out of my account as Evernote change my password. I am unable to get a hold of anyone to reset my password. The website is not customer friendly and it is impossible to talk to someone on the phone. A total waste.
Please add Table creation support.
Time to shop a replacement 1/5
I was able to hold on while Evernote was going through it's business model transition.
I have paid the increasing plus then premium fees.
Things get slower, less intuitive, and buggier with each update.
Perhaps it's been put out to pasture but I'm sad to see it go.
(For developers: I can't even scroll through my notes on an iPhone x without the app freezing --even offline notebooks.
The most important thing for me is the share to Evernote functionality from within other apps. This gets slower and less reliable with each update)
Customer service 1/5
I am trying to see if they can make an improvement on the reminders so I can set one five years ahead. Tried to contact Evernote and they require that you upgrade just to send them an email????? Can’t believe it. Long time customer. Moving on.
Dark mode needs a dark splash screen. 4/5
Dark icon please. And dark splash screen. Details matter.
8.18 is super buggy 1/5
By Dmrs dan
Latest version is the worst I’ve seen; super buggy, crashes on search, sticks on reopen. Trouble going from offline to online modes.
Can use some work 4/5
Overall,This app is pretty good but I do not like how if you delete a word or sentence it changes the color back to normal
Not worth it 1/5
By the res13
Not as good as most other apps. Functionality on an iPad Pro is terrible. Their customer service is poor especially for the plus members.
$50...? U kidding me? 1/5
I don’t know what happened... 1/5
I used to pay 💰 every month like 6$ and I loved this app. Used it constantly. Then I noticed I was being charged through amazon as well as iTunes. Then I stopped payment and restarted another account but I won’t pay for it anymore. It just sits and grinds on a “devices” page glitch. It’s been months like 6 and three -4 devices later- still hung up
I’m done. Too bad. I loved it back in the day... 😕
Upgrade request overriding open 1/5
I’ve been a satisfied user of basic Evernote since 2008. Suddenly an upgrade screen is overriding my ability to access any of my files. These are important and unless I upgrade to a paid account I am being denied access. I considered doing the upgrade for a month to get my information transferred out of Evernote, but reading reviews that people aren’t getting access WITH the upgrade makes me hesitant to do so.
All my notes gone. Will never return to Evernote. 1/5
I’ve been a basic user of Evernote for years. I downloaded the most recent update, and now all of my notes are gone. At least a hundred of them. Somehow I’ve been reverted back to a brand new user with NOTHING saved. Medical notes, book lists, birthday party plans... gone. Everything is gone. If you’re lucky enough to still have all your notes, back them up elsewhere, because apparently they can disappear at any time.
By Jim Riggs
Crashing every time I open since last update!
A tool to centralize all my tasks and notes 5/5
With the multiple insufficiencies of outlook for Mac - that we use at a group level, Evernote is my perfect tool for keeping ALL my tasks in the same place, from emails to answer, tasks I create, etc. I forward emails to my Evernote account several times a day to schedule the time to answer (could you add a function where we choose the default notebook to send email reminders to avoid the ‘@‘ step and set that, if no date is mentioned, the default is tomorrow?).
I also have the comfort of having my notes everywhere with me on a handwritten format. I used to be a fan of paper notebooks but was losing them all. Solved now! Finally the scan document function is incredible and allows me to manage all my legal scanned contracts in the best possible way. WELL DONE team Evernote.
Terrifying Customer Support 1/5
By Icey Cake
I am going to pay them by upgrading to premium but the app still shows plus. Open the ticket with them 2 days ago but get zero human response. I have the need to use premium for a project and now i am stucked. Apple supports points me to Evernote. I am done with Evernote!!!!
By Ziyun Feng
It’s Back 5/5
Gave new rating of 5 stars b/c developers brought back the quick find via alphabet selection on the right hand side. So much more efficient to use than only scrolling.
The Best, Yet Not 3/5
I’ve tried plenty of note taking apps, and when it comes to the desktop or web app for Mac, Evernote is solid! The UI makes all your notebooks really accessible and it’s easy to us, plus the notebook sharing is unbeatable right now. The mobile app, however, is not so well laid out. It’s actually kind of confusing and it’s sloooow. Sometimes, I have to wait 4-5 seconds for the app to un-freeze after pushing a button within the app. Often times, I just end up killing the app and restarting it. That’s not convenient at all, especially when you want to make a quick note on the fly. It has the potential to be the best thing out there, but there is a bit of work to do to get the mobile app, up to speed.
Works well, but poor customer support 1/5
By Assist to Regional Manager
I finally brought myself to shelling out the $34.99 for the year subscription. None of my devices showed the account upgrade. Contacted Evernote twice and haven’t heard anything back. Chatted with Apple and they were very responsive, but ultimately determined it was an issue with Evernote. I ended up refunding my purchase out of sheer frustration. Perhaps if they were more responsive I would be a happy Evernote user. We will never know!
Good across devices. 5/5
Works well across my mac and iPhone. Could load a bit faster. Hopefully they improve that soon.
Nothing better out there 5/5
The product gets better all of the time. Keep it up, I am happy to pay for the premium service. The search engine is amazing. I am placing more and more in the cloud to be able to search on my iPhone. I hope they keep their/my data as secure as possible.
I would be lost without my Evernote app!
