Sluggish and crashing a lot 2/5
By Corgi Knight
Annoying to use as it’s slow and unstable. Whenever you want to look at or write a new note you have to wait a minute or two before you can which breaks your momentum to write or causes you to forget some of what you wanted to write down
Loved this app until I got an iPad pencil 3/5
By Conner Franke
I’ve been a faithful Evernote user and promoter for years...until I got an iPad and iPad pencil. Now, I pay monthly to use Evernote across 3 devices, and the Apple Pencil support is very bad compared to other apps on the market. I’ve switched to Notability until Evernote catches up with the times. Come on guys!!! 3 stars until this is fixed.
Update: Evernote owns penultimate? Just integrate those features into Evernote!!
Great but unstable 1/5
By Boaz a
I love Evernote, but it crashes often on the iPad Pro - daily at the very least.
If you’re using “sketches” - beware! If you’re editing a sketch and switch apps, you may lose any changes made since the last time the sketch was closed. I’m constantly clicking “done” on sketches before app-switching to avoid this, which is quite tedious work.
Awesome until iOS 13 3/5
I’m betta for iOS and I lost all access to my Evernote notes once I upgraded to the beta. Now it’s full release still no access. How long until it works ? Never realized how much you depend on it until you don’t have access to it. Please hurry up and fix it. I’ve been able to see the notes but if i click on one it just spins never showing the contents of the notes.
Evernote’s strength lies in its cross-platform agility.
The best filing system, ability to create your own journal, to do list 5/5
By Christine Howell
My life is on Evernote. I have a a To Do list that includes my journal at the beginning, including pictures from the day’s activities, notes, thoughts, goals for the month, three months, for the year, to do list for the day, with check boxes and a daily list with check boxes, including exercise, reading, etc.
The filing system on Evernote enables you to pull up any saved information quickly and efficiently. I have lost material infrequently when syncing between devices.
Was buggy. Better in last 6 mons. 3/5
Lost a lot of data a year ago.
I like it now. 3 stars.
Crashes all the time 1/5
This app used to be great. Now it crashes all the time on both by iPhone and iPad and I’m always having to force quit it twice to force a restart. I have a lot of notes in here, but eventually, if I get fed up, I might do the work to transition everything to Google Drive.
Not worth enough 2/5
There’s just one highlighter color, yellow, since 2013...even in the paid version, team never took note, ever... it should be called NeverNote. Not happy at all
Paste error of a copied text 1/5
Whenever I try to copy the text in the app Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary and paste it directly to Evernote, each word in the pasted text go on its own line, they are not on the same line. I attempt to search for Evernote’s email to inform about this bug but they require me to pay an extra money to buy the premium plan just to send them email, really? I have never seen any corporation until now that requires customers to pay money so that they can send emails to it. Worst customer service ever!
I love it, but... 3/5
I was looking everywhere for the perfect app with which to take notes, keep records of things, or just to scribble down my thoughts or ideas, but I hadn’t had much luck before I found this app. Five minutes into using Evernote, I began to think this really might be it. I was so excited... until it started randomly crashing on me. I haven’t been counting, but I’m thinking it may have crashed about 30 times already in the last 10 hours. I’ll be sticking with it as long as I see improvements over time.
I love this but 3/5
I love this but the on thing i don’t like if i want to have reminder for every single task on my to do list and can’t and more different fonts on writing and i also i would like a feature to be able to look each individual note as well
Notifications Unclear 3/5
I don’t know why I have a badge unless I search the whole app. A Notification Center would be useful.
Lacks basic functionality 1/5
I just lost an hour worth of work Becca there is no undo. Lacks the most basic needed word processing function. Use Google docs or any other word processor or note app
Great app. One request to make it 5 stars 5/5
Update: Evernote no longer has the big glowing semi circle for the “new note” section, so I am thoroughly pleased with the app. Thank you for the great resource.
I am thoroughly enjoying this app ever since I’ve using it, but the one thing keeping it from being a 5-star app is the “new note” pop up that cannot be minimized. It is so large and it blocks the names of my other entries and folders so that I am forced to blindly click until I find the one that I’m looking for. I love the green, but can it be less... in the way?
My Favorite Organization/Archive/Storage Toil 5/5
I cannot live without it.
As a terribly disorganized person by nature, Evernote makes it simple and painless to
all the data I need and use in my life.
I have been a user from its earliest beginnings and have been happy to pay for the account even though my usage pattern does not exceed the FREE tier.
Good app. There is one problem for me with the app.. You can only encrypt and edit encrypted text on computer. There is no option to do this on mobile. You can view items encrypted on computer, but cannot make changes or create new encrypted data. But other than that, a great note taking app!
I don’t get it 3/5
I am not finding this application easy to navigate. When I opened the app I looked for a “to do” template. You would think that would be the most basic template there is. You would think you there would be a number of options to choose from. The “to do” template search was a big fat nothing. Yes, I found something I could use but not after floundering around a bit. Once I was in my account notes, I couldn’t find a way to look at more templates or get to a “home” page so I could start a new project.
I think I am using this application incorrectly or it is not the application I should be using for my basic needs. I want a digital planner that is easy to work in and to create and manipulate writing the details of my life. Then I want to easily be able to generate a hard copy (printout) to make my own personalized daily organizer.
Great but they’ve ruined it 1/5
It’s a great tool as many may know...however there’s a 64mb monthly limit for synchronizing but no big deal here you can still create your notes memos and songs etc. The DEAL BREAKER is that once you’ve reached your monthly limit if you’re anything like me that’s easy to do they keep flashing the purchase more syc space over and over and over and over that it annoys you. The ploy is to get you so annoyed that you buy more space but if you’re anything like me you’re inclined to do the opposite. This forced ads have infected the way we view everything and do everything and I hate it passionately. This app has been my favorite for years until this update.
Best unifying notes program around 5/5
Unifying research and thoughts in one tableau has enabled such a great increase in solo and team productivity through efficiency and collaboration. I love Evernote and have been using it for a few years now.
Revoke existing devices? 1/5
Been with Evernote forever and they they pushing me to revoke my existing devices or buy premium.
A great tool... disturbing bugs! 4/5
I’ve been using Evernote as my go-to note platform for more than 3 years. I’m a huge fan.
However, ever since I shifted to iPad and started using Apple Pencil to hand-write notes, it saves those notes, but as soon as I come back later, they vanish! That’s not reliable, neither is it suitable for such a masterly designed platform. Please fix it!
Life on Evernote 5/5
The program and app is outstanding. I coordinate input with gmail and use screenshots to stay current and organized. Tags and inserted check boxes keeps the current tasks and reminders at the top of the screen.
I swear by it, but.... 4/5
By CHA account
I’ve been using Evernote for years. I swear my life is connected to it. But it doesn’t work consistently on all platforms. It will work great on my iPhone or Samsung, but will be terrible on my tablet. But like I said it’s got my life attached to it, so…
replaces my pc storage 5/5
I store most things in evernote instead of my PC or other cloud services. Evernote’s search capability is fantastic! It ALWAYS locates what I’m searching for. Evernote has paid for itself many times over. The premium subscription is worth it!
Great app! 5/5
I use this for all my notes. Great app. Easy to use and stay organized. Thanks!
Usability is not as great as it could be 3/5
I love this app. I use Evernote to keep track of recipes, but I wish that there was an easier way to create new tags, search tags, and apply tags when saving an article in the app. Right now you have to manually scroll through all existing tags to apply one, and there is no way to add a new tag unless you are in edit mode. Not great.
Don’t support right to left languages like Arabic and Persian 2/5
I think it’s a serious problem
Item no longer available? 2/5
What happened to version 8.2.3? The App Store says ‘this item is no longer available’ while I tried to upgrade. Something must be wrong.
It constantly bogs down on my computer and says not responding. It’s the only program I have issues with.
Great app, slight improvements 5/5
I use Evernote . It’s a great app. I just wish that when you make lists, it’s easier to make subindentations from ordered lists to bullet points.
Another issue is that when I make an ordered list and hit enter, I want spaces in between the numbers. Not the immediate line after.
Also if I could color individual Words instead of the whole line.
Not Interested 1/5
By Elvis Fan
I thought I’d be interested. But changed my mind. Now I see there is no Cancel subscription bc I never actually started after the trial time expired.
Doesn’t seem very stable 2/5
By no name please dont be taken
I got this app because long ago I used this and decided to get back into writing and looking at my old notes. I bought premium without trying it out and found that it was a big mistake.
The app has to pretty much reload where I was every time I go back to it even just for a little bit. I also see some of notes overlayed the current note I’m working on in the top. I also am. It a fan of the bottom use of putting similar notes to what I’m working on. It just makes it look cramped
Every time I go to transfer my notes from quizlet to Evernote I get a black box, what’s the problem ?
Great App 5/5
By Sweetss 💜💜
I’ve using this app for years. I started using it on android and when I switched to iOS the first thing I did was go in the App Store to make sure I would still be able to. I don’t know what I would do without it. Love that my stuff is secure and I can organize it.
Outstanding app 5/5
Perfect for note taking, planning and organizing. I use it Dailey for my business.
Won’t let you cancel. 1/5
I have been unsuccessfully trying to stop a subscription for over a year and they keep billing me for $70 for something I don’t use. I’m so fed up with them.
Great tool; one request 4/5
Have been devout since '13. Would be GREAT to have a slightly enhanced tasks tool integrated. Not asking for perfection, but would love an easier way to prioritize all tasks across notes.
Love It! 5/5
Even the free version is amazing!!
Why Only 3 3/5
Essentially I love having this app.
However, there is one particular “feature” that I despise, which is not too harsh a word for how I feel about it.
For the type of writing I do, I truly despise the automatic highlighting and deleting that occurs with words the app doesn’t recognize as words.
This should be a “feature” that can be shut off within even the basic version of this APP.
I will have to sort out my options should it continue to aggravate me.
I use it daily 4/5
Journal, notes, check lists, measurements— If I want to remember something. I write it down.
Love Evernote 5/5
I’ve been using Evernote to keep my recipes. It’s user friendly and easy to navigate.
The easiest, most efficient way to organize any and all aspects of your life 5/5
By Della Mull
My title speaks for itself.
By Rad Professor
Very useful way to maintain access to multiple projects while moving to multiple work locations, and for keeping travel documents and receipts organized, accessible, and in one secure, handy place. Pro subscriber since 2013.
So good 5/5
This is a great note taking app! Although sometimes it jumps up to the top of the page when pressing enter on iPad (plz fix this)
User from the beginning, freezing is more of a problem now than ever 3/5
I starting using Evernote back when it was completely free and just starting to get some attention. It’s never become the full fledged info management device it promised to be, but I’ve been satisfied with it as a massive filing cabinet that holds thousands of notes and clippings. I also used it as a “quick ideas” note taker. But in the last few updates, the app has frozen every time I’ve used it, on two different iPads. I don’t trust it so much anymore and am backing up my notes elsewhere (I already use OneNote for writing). Apple notes has lock screen access for quick notes. Notion has also caught my attention with its flexible interface. But Evernote still shines with its search and OCR, if only I could get the darn thing to open and not hang up.
What to do? 1/5
After update to 8.23 ver. When I open app it opens and after Approx. 1 min. App shuts down. Kind of hard to use app with only one min of time. Hate to delete app. What to do?????
New Update Same Problems 1/5
Again, update, log full of claims on fixes and all the problems still remain. Pictures from the camera don’t get placed in notes consistently. This was a working feature in the past. Please stop claiming you fix things when you have not. The picture gets inserted into the note for the picture preview when viewing notes in a notebook but the note itself does not show the picture and then has to be added manually from photos.
I like this a lot 4/5
I recommend it and have a premium subscription.
1 edit in markdown
2 notebook specific sort options. Some notebooks are "logs" and some notebooks are "encyclopedias". One size of sort does not fit all.
