Great memory and categorization app 3/5
This is one of my favorite things. It has great value to capture things you need to capture, including things you don't even know why you are saving. Buy it, you'll like it.
Many of the things that people complain (whine) about are often a lack of knowledge. If you look at the help, or ask a question, you may find the answer. This is an extremely versatile, useful and memory aiding app. You can do todo's contrary to prior notes.
Update may 2019
This is probably old news to some, but learned a very painful lesson recently.
I had some critical information stored on Evernote for an emergency.
When I went to retrieve it, I was in a remote location with no cell or internet coverage.
To my dismay, it appears you no longer have access to a note when you are incommunicado.
Be very careful not to store any critical information if it relies on internet or cell access. Duplicate the info on a reliable local source as you may find yourself in a very surprising situation.
Besides that, still a useful and well done app, but still.....
Outdated IOS, not reliable and lack of features 1/5
It’s no surprise that EVERNOTE has been struggling. For years I’ve stuck with them hoping they would fix and improve but I’ve come to the realization they just aren’t competitive in this market place. They continue to invite users feedback and although new owner has just taken the helm I feel it’s too late for this software and team to rebound. I’m moving my notes and canceled my premium account as it’s still to be paying for a service that just doesn’t give me what I want (more reliability, faster more responsive UI and better looking typography and font) to name a few. It’s a shame because how much I used the software through the years but that’s not to say it came with great frustration.
Poor customer service 1/5
By andrew w j
I purchased the app in the App Store and it did not work and continued to function as unpaid. I then purchased it from Evernote directly and it did work using the same email and login. I was double billed for months until I recognized it and neither Apple nor Evernote cared that they they were both getting paid for the same account.
Would recommend to new users 2/5
By User47: JL Johnson
If you’re looking for a note taking app, keep looking.
I have been using Evernote for close to a decade now. For most of those years I’ve been premium or plus level paid account. In recent years they really let themselves go. Premium evernote account is now almost as expensive as Office 365 which includes OneNote in addition to outlook word excel access and others.
Perhaps my biggest gripe beyond pricing is that when I move from one platform to another the fonts in my lists and notes don’t transfer correctly. I’m sure this doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it is incredibly distracting to have sentences shift from one font and perceived size to another back and forth.
I tried to defect to OneNote (which is now free!) but with thousands of notes it was hard to adopt to their unique ecosystem and I came crawling back.
Organizes my life 5/5
I love using Evernote—it has made a huge difference in organizing my life. All of the photos and notes that would have been in separate files or notebooks or scraps of paper are all in the same place and easy to find.
With Evernote since 2010. 3/5
I call myself paperfree and use Evernote as one of the most important tools to make that possible.
It’s all in there. My whole paper life.
And that’s a great achievement that I value a lot. Though despite that, there are just so many shortcomings with this app.
Little annoyances and big problems that I always hoped to be fixed over time but never really did get better.
Like, why can’t I encrypt notes or text on mobile devices? Or when I link to notes from other apps, sometimes this link works and the app opens up fine, and sometimes I have to restart the whole app to make the link work... it’s driving me crazy.
And what about the Apple Pencil? Why can’t I do handwritten notes, on text, like in other apps?
So overall I’m happy it’s all there at one spot but the shortcomings just make me wanna find a better solution. And I am on the lookout. I know that the competition is getting better. And maybe soon there will be options that I prefer and then I will switch. But maybe, Evernote is getting its things together and improves its quality. I hope for the best...
Too many crashes.
Survey? Zero stars 1/5
I’ve been a relatively satisfied Evernote customer since the beginning, but I recently keep getting interrupted by pop ups in the app asking me if I’d like to take a survey when I’m trying to get some work done.
Here’s the answer to your survey—keep interrupting me, and I will cancel.
Same goes for every other website/app/service that pops up crap in my face when I’m trying to get something done.
Evernote is the best 5/5
I use Evernote to collect articles and take notes with photographs and audio at conferences. I have the app on every device I have, cell phone, iPad, Chrome browser and can save any articles I encounter in newspapers, journals right to prenamed folders on Evernote with notes to remind myself what I thought the article is for. I think this is an essential App and I absolutely love it.
Updates are too slow 4/5
I’m talking about US store.
Missing some Important note taking features 4/5
It’s a great note taking app very light and functional and not as heavy as OneNote.
It’s missing some features like timestamp well-timed me and recording audio so you can relate your notes to the audio taking when you are recording a meeting or recording a lecture. I am not sure why I never know it is not adding this feature.
Also their number Bullets feature needs some work as well. It will be nice if each note could allow bigger storage.
Also regarding scanning there should be a way to convert to digital file from the phone like a picture that’s already taken from the document and convert it to a scanned document and flattened it using Evernote.
Have loved Evernote since it was a new startup 5/5
And it just keeps getting better. Thanks for the tools and the constant innovation, EN!
It is good until they start asking for more money 1/5
Evernote is good until they start asking for more money. All of the sudden, they will say your storage for a particular month (which is no different than any other month) is 75% full. Then they ask for more money to store your info. If you go through and clean up your files, permanently deleting files you no longer need, it won’t recognize that you decreased your files and increased your storage space and still asks for more money. Thus, asking for more money and giving NOTHING more. Then on top of this what should have taken 2 minutes will rob you of an hour or more of your life that you will never get back. I would have been better off using a mimeograph machine. I will be deleting this app ASAP.
Need to fix ‘freezing’ problem on iPad 4/5
I’m a long-standing user.
Lately, my iPad has frozen every time I access EN because previous search tern still in search box.
This is not an issue on iPhone or MacBook and didn’t used to be an issue on iPad until about a month ago.
Why is it slow 3/5
It was working fine on my new iPad but suddenly it is slow
Formerly Awesome 3/5
Evernote was incredible from launch until a few months ago.
Now, all those changes have been reversed, but I’m left with an organization I can’t trust.
5 Stars originally. Not worth looking at just a month ago. Now, supposedly back to business as usual. 3 stars and infrequent use until they prove they are still the company I fell in love with.
Although good but Bug a lot 1/5
By Andy The G Brother
A lot of bug while editing.
Why does this app keep freezing and crashing? 3/5
By Not happy4545
Why does this app keep freezing and crashig on both an iPad and iPhone.
iOS 12.2 on each device.
Best app in the world 5/5
Not sure how I can I organize my finances, notes, etc better! I love this product. This is my virtual brain, except it remembers! Always available, searchable. Can't be without now!
Freezes constantly on iPad Pro 1/5
Used to be a great app. Time to find an alternative.
Essential tool for my small business and life 5/5
By Ben Forest
Been using Evernote for five years plus now. Subscribe to the premium edition for the encryption and privacy protections. Use it to keep detailed information about clients. As well as my own life/hobbies. Photos. Audio. But mostly written records that are usually dictate. Powerful search abilities even if I don’t bother with tagging etc. I have always found it when I am needed.
Use it on multi platform. Desktop computer, iPhone, iPad and it even logged in remotely via the web.
Do you like Evernote apps for the platforms; add speed and I’m able to store key files locally (do not need Internet access).
Have needed their tech-support a couple of times. Resolve the issue quickly.
If I had it suggested to improve, I’d like to see better Apple Pen support have an apple pen capabilities in the iPad app. My guess is; they are probably working on that
This app always freezes when I’m typing. Even when I close the app and reload it, there is my keyboard .... frozen .... and my screen. I’m not sure why this app glitches so much and doesn’t respond. I will press “bold” , type what I need to - press it again, and it will not go out of “bold”. And NO ITS NOT MY IPAD, I only have these issues in the app itself.
Good note but the price is little bit high 3/5
Overally good app for taking notes and managing documents.
But the price is still high
Used to be ok 1/5
Used to be a handy app for remembering things and syncing across cloud. However, the recent updated code must not allow keychain/safari pw feature on iOS (or w/e it’s called) to put in pw automatically using Touch ID on iPhone 7+. Please fix as I can’t access app with a strong pw that iOS/MacOS saves for my convenience and to compensate for my awfully poor memory. Thanks developers for all your hard work over the years!
Mr Steve 5/5
The news never know for five years now and still works perfect in construction
Doesn’t sync with Series 4 Apple Watch 1/5
I got this app to give it a try. Put in one note that I would want to access on my Apple Watch. It will sync it for 1 day then the next day it is gone. I then have to force it to sync again. Not going for waste that time every day... I’ll just grab the phone. At least it was a free trial of it. Won’t be buying it.
Product is ok. Customer service is HORRIBLE if you don’t pay them 1/5
I liked this app at beginning, until I paid subscription fee to become a premier user. For some reason, they charged me but the subscription didn’t work . Then the nightmare begins. I can’t call them because I’m not a premium customer yet. I can’t even write emails to them since they categorized my problem as “iTunes ” related problem, so it’s none of their business. In the end, apple helped me to get the refund. They only care about paid customers.
Should be a great app 2/5
Idea itself is great, layout is great, but I had to reinstall the app 4 times now. It gets to a point where creating a new note or opening an old one is so slow that it’s quicker to just use the Apple notes app. You’d think it would be better if you used offline mode for the notes you need to access the most, but it actually makes it worse. Only solution is to reinstall the app after every 20 notes or so that you add, otherwise it gets slow to the point that it’s frustrating when you’re trying to get an idea down quickly.
Deleted content+no history for the note 1/5
When I have both the phone and web app open, content gets deleted. This wouldn’t be a problem, but you can’t see the history of the note unless you are a subscriber. Ridiculous. Moving back to google docs.
Forget about changing email address 1/5
I attempted a simple email address change followed by an attempt to sync notes..... don’t even go there. It has taken me about 2 months of following online instructions; attempt to contact support: which you get automated responses until you persist and then a human... no help! Just deleted app. Will never use again nor refer to anyone.
Can not log in with Evernote International account 2/5
I can’t log in with my international account :(( It seems like the two systems are separate... One the website or Mac, I can select “switch to Evernote International”, but there’s no such selection on this mobile App 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ it just doesn’t allow me to log in. Instead it created a new account with that email address for me............
(Plz contact me if you have a solution)
Super useful!!! 5/5
Great product. Love it!!!
Evernote role in my life 5/5
By Aaron Granuel
Evernote has become an important app within my productivity system. It’s part of daily routine primarily for storing templates, references and vital documents to complete any task. Evernote offers an array of features, focusing on the experience of the user within any capacity whether it be artistic, professional or personal. They have room to grow but I think they’re aware of that, I’m excited to see how they’ll stay ahead of their competitors.
처음엔 잘 썼어요 2/5
근데 두대 한정으로 정해놓으니까 쓰는게 불편하더군요. 그러니까 자연히 다른 공유노트를 쓰게 됩니다. 회사 사정이 있겠지만 여기저기서 필요할 때 열어보려고 쓰려는 건데 많이 불편하네요. 기분도 나쁘구요. 돈을 지불하고 써야할 만큼 편한건 아니니까요 ㅠ
Hidden charges /fees 1/5
Unsubscribe or use the free version. Do not get tricked into using the auto payment option for the free trial. Immediately pay for the entire year for 69.99 or use freeware. Prepare for multiple card holds and charges on a free trial

Great features, annoying quirks 3/5
I’ve used Evernote for years now and I’ve noticed it’s gotten slower and slower over time. It takes so long for it to sync even when I have perfect internet connection. When I switch away from Evernote on my phone, even for just ten seconds, when I come back to it, it puts up a spinner for up to ten seconds, sometimes booting me out of that note and I have to navigate back to it. Wish it could keep my state better. It also has unreliable search results. Often there are no results but then I find the note I was looking for on my own and it does indeed include the text I searched for.
By Angry Customer 620
I’m really irked. Have used Evernote for years and kept some vital information there. Am not told I have to upgrade to a paying account and all my personal information is being held hostage unless I upgrade. There should be a law against this.
I'm a longtime user of Evernote, with the app installed on my phone, iPad, and home computer. But I'm not able to install new programs on my work computer, so I rely on the desktop version for much of my use. This version has consistently FAILED to save updates to notes for months, deleting all changes I make within moments after making them. I've struggled to devise workarounds (copy and paste an old note into Word, make changes, paste into a new Evernote), but it's ridiculous that I'm doing all this work and Evernote clearly isn't working to fix this issue. You can't even open a support ticket unless you pay for a premium subscription! Nope, I'm not going to pay you for just to ask you to fix your broken product. I'm just going to find a new product that actually works. So long, Evernote.
Not good apps 3/5
Not free again
Should be better 3/5
This app is very useful, but it has a couple of major flaws which are real disadvantages. First, the app doesn’t seem to be able to stay launched. If my phone goes to sleep, when I wake it up I have to relaunch it. Second, every time I reopen it the note seems to take a moment to reload. Does it really have to get a fresh copy two minutes after I last looked at it? These may seem minor but when you’re referring back to something multiple times it adds up to a lot of annoyance.
Constantly asking me to upgrade 1/5
I’m using it to take notes on my iPad in class. I only want it on one device to take notes from lectures and occasionally click pictures of slides. Apparently there is a monthly quota for how much data you can record. Once i hit that which is pretty much during my second lecture, from that point on it is constantly in my face to upgrade. Ive stopped recorded get but it pops us sometime sin the middle of my class. Hella annoying
Great App but too $$ 4/5
By Doc 4 Animals
Meets the needs of so many and could have many more sign on to the premium version if the fees were more reasonable. Each must decide, myself I refuse to pay
So I continue with the standard version.
Greedy garbage company 1/5
They could have taken the crown for notes. Instead they got greedy and sloppy and my costs quadrupled overnight when they got greedy and I lost dozens of notes when they got sloppy. I wish I could use the finger emoji on removes. You know which one you deserve.
Needs New Format 3/5
I’ve been a member since 2013. Love Evernote, but it is time for an update. More screen colors and the option to see things in notebook form. I use it for personal business but tend to use other programs such as GoodNotes and Zoho Notebook for fun, travel, lists, photos and scanned documents. My go to app is iOS Notes for simplicity and speed and Evernote second because I trust Evernote the security.
Good but laggy 3/5
I love Evernote and use it religiously to organize and store links, articles, the usual. The save shortcuts work great. However, today I tried to, in the Evernote app, go into an article I had copied to Evernote and highlight/bold/underline the article— but was unable to do so without generous lag time and ultimately, difficulty selecting the sentences I wanted to work with. If this is a little more streamlined, it would be virtually perfect!
Crashes when taking photo 1/5
I used to love this app so much but now for some strange reason it crashes whenever it is used to take a photo. I have tons of receipts to import to Evernote but now I can’t because each time I snap a photo it crashes.
I’m so fed up right now that I am starting to search for an alternative.
Freezes & crashes 1/5
By Alaina Ho
I’ve been an Evernote user for years. I really like the web version of the app, which works great. However, the iPhone app is terrible & almost impossible to use ... it constantly freezes & crashes when I open it, when I’m searching for a note, or attempt to open a notebook. So frustrating!!!
Ticked OFF long time Premium user 1/5
By Boll Weevill
What gives you the right to remove files from my device !!?????
i loved this App! or shall i say trusted this App! but now they’ve succombed to the BS called the cloud in such a fashion where files are removed ????!!!!! from device, and redownloaded ??? Really!?
i’ve just recorded an audio file, and during normal coarse of the app’s sync uploaded to evernotes cloud... ok, no issue with that. technically should be ok... and certainly handy to move between devices and webtool... however whatever process they use, in fact just removed MY FILE from the original recording device during sync. In this particular instance, the SYNC failed, and because of the idiotic method of the app, the file is lost both on cloud, and device
consider this a security breach
total CRAP !!!!
can you tell i’m Ticked OFF !!!!!
ps —- to make it worse, like the rest of this recent jump where technology/thinks cloud is the savior... where is the support email address for premium users? where do we get assistance? iTunes reviews ???
