    Evernote is my database and what I love is that other apps can sync with this one. It allows me to group notes according to projects and with the browser extension, I can save essential articles since they often disappear or change.

    Organizing a baby shower is a huge task on its own and trying to figure out how to spend as less money as possible only creates an extra burden. You can be sure to stay organized as you can easily check all tasks in progress and quickly update on the go.

    If you have 10s of screenshots on your phone, you’ll want an easy way to keep them organized so you don’t forget 15 days later when you need them. You can organize screenshots into folders, tag them, and even add comments so you always know where they are.

    Remembering every detail about a shopping interaction can be difficult after 4 hours have already gone by. You can jot down a few notes during your interactions to provide even better company feedback and get hired for more mystery shopping jobs.

    The average American uses about 2 pounds of paper a day. Using Evernote can significantly decrease the amount of paper you use in a day. It gives you the ability to create detailed notes, clear memos, store receipts, and create tags to easily find your notes later.

    Planning a wedding is no easy feat. With all the countless preparations (which btw could easily go over 100 when listed down), there's just no way you could achieve it without jutting down important notes. With Evernote, keeping track of all the details is a breeze.

    When you’re a doctor and you’re always seeing patients, you want to make sure that you’re organized. Otherwise you could spend 2 hours or more a day just going through your notes to keep up to date.

    Used to be, hands-down, the best note app in the world. But this past year has been a horrific war hell ride of bugs and half broken features. Every time I scroll through a long note, my vertical swipes are misinterpreted as left swipes, closing the note. Duplicate note problems, not an issue for years, have returned with a vengeance. Auto scrolling issue is very annoying. And the whole thing is a slow, plodding mess. I hate that I no longer love this app. I hate more that I pay for it.
  • Fantastic update Jul 28, 2021

    By Danny888
    I just don’t understand some of negative reviews of Evernote’s latest update, which is fantastic. I have been using the app for years and am thrilled to see the innovation that the new leadership team is bringing about a year in. It looks like it took about a year to stabilize, and now new features are a’comin’. Tasks is game changing, and Gmail and Google calendar sync has boosted my productivity tremendously. I have been mainly using the web app but earlier this week updated my iPhone to this version. Immediately following the update I was having all sorts of issues getting my notes to load in the app. So I sent a support ticket to Evernote, called it a day, and accidentally left the app running overnight on my iPhone. To my delight I awakened to see a notification in the app that I had been successfully upgraded to then latest personal version. All of my notes suddenly appeared, and I have had a phenomenal experience with the app ever since. IMO nothing comes close to Evernote. I love Google, but Drive is where notes go to die. Evernote is where they flourish. I cannot say enough good things about this app and what I’m seeing from the company. It is extremely difficult to satisfy all existing customers while innovating and expanding the base. As a longtime user, however, I personally feel that the team is doing a tremendous job. Kudos!
  • Amazing customer service and great study tool Jan 23, 2020

    I love this app for taking notes for my classes. I’ve since used it as a weekly and monthly planner making organizing classes so much easier. I love that I can have all my class notes and planners all in one spot. It’s easy to navigate through as well. The formatting for taking notes makes it easy to follow along in class without having to worry about organizing my notes. I use the class notes template and there’s even a section for questions which I’ve found very helpful as I tend to think of things during lecture but usually at inappropriate times. This template allows me to quickly jot down thoughts so I can ask the professor after class. I’ve only just started to use this app but I’m sure I’ll be using this note taking app well into graduate school. I had to use cengage for one of my college classes and it offered a 6month free trial and after trying to redeem that I ended up being charged for the full annual price. I reached out to customer service and got a response almost immediately with a refund and they honored the free trial as well. I’m beyond happy with this fast service and doing the right thing, I fully expected to be charged the full amount. The only thing I’d love to see is different highlighter colors!
  • Lost photos I uploaded for recipes Jan 6, 2018

    By Turkey Sandwiches
    I used to love Evernote until today. I bragged to all of my friends how great Evernote. I use it for many things including as a recipe storage. I am using Evernote basic. However, today the App lost 2 of my recipes. I’m very frustrated. I had a special pasta recipe I was going to make with my son. I saw the photo of the recipe on my phone and when I clicked on it and opened it up the photo disappeared. I can’t seem to get it back in any way. I think this is a terrible thing to have happened. I tried to organize my recipes electronically and pitched the hard copies. Now I have lost that recipe and another. I clicked on another recipe from the app and that photo disappeared as I opened it. I think I took these photos in 2015. The app worked fine for a recipe photo I took in 2017 this morning but it losing older photos. This is unacceptable. I stopped opening recipe notes and went to the webpage on my Mac to open other recipes and the browser version worked fine with the other pasta recipes I added the same day. But now I have wasted an hour trying to no avail to restore the image. Because I’m a basic user, I’m not even able to email customer support. The app appears to be garbage right now if it loses photos while the web browser does not. I’m so disappointed.
  • App going downhill Dec 15, 2019

    By Bernadette Minton
    I’ve used Evernote for years, but lately thinking of switching. Major issues: (1) search function used to be awesome t has been getting worse and worse; lately it is missing simple matches such as plural vs singular, incorrect spellings etc. with all the text matching tech available today there is no excuse for this poor level of word matching. (2) I store all my recipes in the app and a super common use case is to create list from a recipe and or switch between 2 or more recipes that I am making at the same time; Evernote behavior for both of these is very time-wasting. On my phone c every time I switch away from Evernote (to add some items to the shopping list) when I return to the recipe it starts me back at the top of the recipe again. Since many of my recipes are clipped from the web the actual recipe text may be V long due to clipping issues- so I may have to scroll 4-5-6 or more screens to get back to the list of ingredients. There’s just no excuse for losing y view location when I switch to another app for less than a minute. And most other apps are able to keep my view with no problem- for example e-commerce sites with long pages of product lists. In short Evernote should get the basics right before advanced “recommended items “ features that I don’t find particularly useful.

    I love Evernote...so far. I use it nearly every day to type up notes to myself to keep track of things. I write poetry so it is useful as a type of word processor that I copy and paste into a blog. I used to use whatever Apple had but they lost three months of notes and could not recover the information. That moment I switched to android based phones with Samsung and have been happy as a duck. As for Evernote, I've had few problems worth mentioning, so all good.
  • Life-Saver for Schoolwork! Apr 11, 2020

    By Anxious&Obsessed
    I absolutely LOVE Evernote and it has been a life-saver with my schoolwork, especially since everything is going remote. The ability to pair it with Scannable— another favorite— and then convert my homework directly to a PDF saves my teachers and me a ton of time! I was snapping a picture of each page of my math assignment and then submitting every JPEG. Not only was it time consuming and tedious, but it looked terrible. With Evernote, I can scan all of my pages into one PDF document that my teacher can grade much more quickly and that I can submit much more easily. I especially love the Google Classroom feature that allows me to import Evernote PDFs directly to my assignments. My few requests are: 1. Allow ‘tabs’ within the notebooks. I have separate notebooks for each of my classes, but the ability to break down those notebooks even further into units or subjects would be awesome! 2. Allow importing to Canvas, Schoology, or other school apps. It would only improve this already incredible system! Thank you, Evernote, for making my life as a student and the lives of my teachers so much easier! Every student needs this app on their iPad or even phone, and I know it will be staying on mine.

    I use Evernote to organize all my recipes and I love how easy it is. I can access my recipes from anywhere (phone, computer, while out shopping to check ingredients.) I like that I can use "tag" words for each recipe so if I need say an 'appetizer', I can search on that tag name and bring up all my appetizer recipes. You can also share your notes and folders with other Evernote users. Within each recipe you can put pictures as well. I love it!
  • Desktop App Needs Better Security Sep 23, 2019

    By Mark Nosrati
    I absolutely love Evernote. I’ve been a premium member since 2012. One of my biggest complaints that they still have not addressed is the security issues. Specifically relating to the desktop app. The mobile version allows you to set a time that it automatically logs you out. Unfortunately, the desktop doesn’t. That leaves your content vulnerable to people who wish to access your content without your permission should you step away from your computer and forget to log out. Yes I know I could use a screensaver to achieve a similar layer of security but that blocks me from everything on my computer. I don’t know why this is possible on the mobile app but not in the desktop. Also, Evernote does not allow you to set additional layers of security for notes or notebooks. You can encrypt text in a note but it doesn’t save that password in an admin settings area. So if you forget or lose the password you lose access to your content. These are sloppy and unrefined security issue if you ask me. I believe Evernote should address these issues and by doing so it can add tremendous value to their overall product.

    The quintessential writing application. Evernote is to the writer what Spotify is to the music listener, a trusted trademark tool of its respective domain with no noteworthy competitor (no pun intended). I have used Evernote to brainstorm ideas, to organize and compartmentalize, to author entire narratives, to take notes on the fly, to caption imagery, and of course to journal my life. What has impressed me the most is the overall continuity of its classic interface over the past twelve years.

    In the last year, I've had issues where notes fail to sync, where the app won't even load on the phone, where everything is slow. The developers appear to be flushing a good app down the toilet. I'm beginning to look for alternatives after my subscription lapses. Had this app for six years. Used to be good.

    this app has gotten terrible. i would pay for it if i had any inkling it would fix the problems. it used to be good, now its basically unusable to take quick notes. the UX gets worse and worse (no widgets for android anymore), its been freezing like crazy the last several months, and half the time i forget what i was going to write down before it finally finishes loading the note to let me edit! i use the color notes app instead now. no cloud connectivity, which sucks, but at least it works.
  • Terrible Update Nov 19, 2020

    By Djstep1
    I’m a long-time Evernote user, and I use the app across multiple devices. I rely on it to organize notes and recipes, and also to track bookmarked articles that I want to reference later. The most recent iOS update has made the app completely unusable. Every action is painfully slow. It crashes often. And then when I finally get a note open (like a recipe, for example), if I switch between Evernote and another app, then Evernote completely restarts and I lose my place and have to search for the note again. This happens even if I switch apps for less then a minute. On top of that, I use Evernote primarily to bookmark webpages, not to clip them. When I open up a note, it’s unclear how to force the app to take me to the original webpage. Sometimes if I tap the note to edit it, Evernote launches its embedded browser (which is ridiculously slow). But other times when I tap the note, it goes into editing mode and there aren’t any options to navigate to the original webpage. I use Evernote to reference recipes several times a week, and I had to stop using my phone for that task. Instead, I search for the recipe using Google on my laptop because it’s faster. Obviously that totally defeats the purpose of having an app on my phone. I’ve never written an App Store review before, but I’m so disappointed in this update that I felt compelled to post something. Evernote is a great product, but this is a terrible app.

    Paying customer since 2010. Throughout its history this company frequently released buggy software. But they have outdone themselves with "Version 10". Core functionality gone (ie offline notes). Bugs created, not fixed (ie, horizontal swipe). Apparently they just don't care anymore. How sad. The only reason I stick with Evernote is tags. Just as soon as a worthy competitor has a product that can match Evernote tagging, I'm gone. I have had enough of such incompetence and lack of care.

    Have been an Evernote user for years and have the premium subscription...I just upgraded my phone and now have the new version of Evernote. While the app has a cool look, all of my previous notes are now unable to load, broken, and it seems gone forever... Thanks Evernote for the loss of these memories and pictures! YOU NEED TO FIX THIS ASAP IF YOU WISH TO KEEP ANY OF US LOYAL FANS OF THE EVERNOTE OF THE PAST!!!!
  • Steadily getting worse Dec 3, 2020

    By rolfejr
    I've been a paying Evernote customer for many years with a lot of my stuff in there but as time has gone on it's been more and more frustrating to use. Attachments won't download. Or you wait 5 minutes while it "says" it is downloading then gets done and nothing happens. Photos won't show. Try to bring up some reference document while you are working on something and every time your phone times out the app just can't seem to handle it and won't just leave the document/note open you were looking at - you start all over - search for the document AGAIN, wait for it to come up, etc. Search inexplicably can't find things where the title or tag has the exact word in it I'm searching for. And there have been times where I have REALLY needed to get to particular piece of information and just couldn't. That is extremely frustrating - that's the point of why I put stuff in there. This product started out awesome in the days when everyone was still using desktops. As we've progressed into to mobile era it just hasn't kept up. Trying to access my stuff in the phone app is a frustrating experience almost every time - and trying to use the site in a mobile browser is worse. I haven't put anything new in for quite some time because it just no longer fits well or just doesn't work simply with how I do things anymore in the mobile era, let alone the fact that the app in general just doesn't work well.

    Used to be an amazing free app packed with tons of features. Now they keep removing features and calling those features a premium thing. I get it takes a lot to setup an maintain apps like this. But I'm not gonna pay monthly just to keep notes. Especially when there apps that do this for free. A one time fee would be understandable.
  • Extremely unreliable. Disregard for user habits Nov 20, 2020

    By FJH-------
    I have been a loyal customer with 9000+ notes and 5+ years of premium subscription. The recent overhaul has introduced so many bugs and ridiculous design failures which are forcing me to consider alternative services. Sync has become extremely unreliable; I’ve had my edits wiped out by sync failures. As of now, Evernote isn’t letting me move my notes to different notebooks, due to some inexplicable bug. Very helpful features that provide flexibility to working on and organizing notes have been eliminated, I guess in the name of tidiness: opening multiple main windows, changing the created date (so helpful for arranging the notes in the order I want), magnifying the words in the editing window (which now cannot be done without magnifying everything else, making it unreasonably cumbersome to operate the sidebar). Then there are countless bugs throughout the software that keeps giving you frustrating surprises. The recent major upgrade demonstrates the team's disregard for the working habits of established users, and also raises concerns about quality control. In so many respects the new version simply isn't ready, and it's unclear to me why the company would be in a rush to release an update. An option for reverting to the older version would be much, much appreciated. Right now, I do not recommend Evernote to any new user. The company has demonstrated its inability to deliver a consistent and reliable product.

    New versions twice as slow, lost features My top use for Evernote on Android is captuing via screen shot. But that has slowed down from about 14s (from click to done). To over 35s. Seems like a small thing but it's incredibly annoying and makes it nearly unusable. It's the Killer feature that keeps me from switching to ROAM Research. I Uninstalled Evernote, reinstalled and deleted cache and local storage. Problem persists.
  • Latest upgrade a total FAIL Jan 11, 2021

    By xray1000000
    I want to change my rating from one star to Zero. I CANNOT STRESS STRONGLY ENOUGH HOW THE LATEST UPDATE OF EVERNOTE HAS COMPLETELY FOULED UP WHAT USED TO BE A FAVORITE APP. DON’T YOU DEVELOPERS USE EVERNOTE? (BTW I never use all caps, but this app now makes me want to scream, and feel free to substitue another word that begins with F for ‘fouled’ in my above statement.) I have been a premium Evernote user for several years. I use it extensively, and have always found it easy to use. However, the new version just updated to my iPad and I am so unhappy. First of all, it is S-O-O-O S-L-O-W. It takes forever to open the app, and once open, forever to open a Note. I post a lot of articles from webpages or the Flipboard app, and in the previous version of Evernote, these appeared immediately to my list of notes. I just sent a short article to Evernote from Flipboard that took 22 minutes to load. Evernote just showed it in the Notes list with a spinning wheel of death. Man, I hate it when software engineers turn something that worked well and that I enjoyed using into something that just aggravates and annoys me. What a pity this has happened to Evernote. Afternote: in the tag list, the A-Z index has been removed, so to skip from Apple to Zebra tags requires scrolling through the entire tag list. Why do you redesign features to make them less user optimized? My former Evernote rating of 5 stars has been reduced to one.

    The quintessential writing application. Evernote is to the writer what Spotify is to the music listener, a trusted trademark tool of its respective domain with no noteworthy competitor (no pun intended). I have used Evernote to brainstorm ideas, to organize and compartmentalize, to author entire narratives, to take notes on the fly, to caption imagery, and of course to journal my life. What has impressed me the most is the overall continuity of its classic interface over the past twelve years.

    This is the best note app I've ever used and I would highly recommend it to anyone that makes tons of notes! There are lots of customization options for just about anything you would be looking for and it's easy to use. They put out frequent updates to make sure the app is running smoothly which I can tell the difference and really appreciate.
  • The new interface is everything I’ve always wanted! May 10, 2021

    By LizStAug
    I’ve had Evernote since forever, and I have tons of stuff stored there. Occasionally I can actually find my things..but the chaos is my fault, because I’ve just dumped stuff in there and never organized it well. But the new home page interface does it all. I am truly impressed. It appears to work well cross-platform so I’m going to have at least one of my devices to open to the Evernote home page. It’s logical, visual, lets you look at and rationalize the information you have collected or uploaded, and lets you make notes on the fly that can help you understand exactly why you put that mysterious document there and if you really had anything in mind when you did it... Reading about the new Evernote, I found that some people make a journal entry or note a day and file it on Evernote, along with any relevant photos, etc. So I’m going to try that next...in the meantime, congratulations to the Evernote folks on taking a good program and making it great! They have really followed up and realized the potential of Evernote.
  • Desktop App Needs Better Security Sep 23, 2019

    By Mark Nosrati
    I absolutely love Evernote. I’ve been a premium member since 2012. One of my biggest complaints that they still have not addressed is the security issues. Specifically relating to the desktop app. The mobile version allows you to set a time that it automatically logs you out. Unfortunately, the desktop doesn’t. That leaves your content vulnerable to people who wish to access your content without your permission should you step away from your computer and forget to log out. Yes I know I could use a screensaver to achieve a similar layer of security but that blocks me from everything on my computer. I don’t know why this is possible on the mobile app but not in the desktop. Also, Evernote does not allow you to set additional layers of security for notes or notebooks. You can encrypt text in a note but it doesn’t save that password in an admin settings area. So if you forget or lose the password you lose access to your content. These are sloppy and unrefined security issue if you ask me. I believe Evernote should address these issues and by doing so it can add tremendous value to their overall product.
  • The latest “improvements” are not improvements May 4, 2021

    By ODGeek
    I have used Evernote for many years and will continue to do so because it is the best way I’ve found to keep and organize notes of all kinds. But like many apps, the latest “improvements” are not improvements. For example, the default appearance, called “Home” is a mess. Before the default appearance was what now is found under “Notes.” It now requires two clicks to get to “Notes.” Before, when I wanted to add key words to a note, I selected the word, “keyword” and started typing the keyword in the text box provided. After each keyword, I typed a comma, and the keyword was added to the article, whether the keyword had been previously used or not. Now when I intend to add a keyword, I wait until the list of keywords pops up, and have to wait for it to find the keyword if it exists, or go through additional steps to add it if it does not. Adding more steps to get a job done is not an improvement. But it’s still the best app I’ve found for organizing notes - so I will continue to use it. I’ll just be more irritated about it while I do.

    Used to be, hands-down, the best note app in the world. But this past year has been a horrific war hell ride of bugs and half broken features. Every time I scroll through a long note, my vertical swipes are misinterpreted as left swipes, closing the note. Duplicate note problems, not an issue for years, have returned with a vengeance. Auto scrolling issue is very annoying. And the whole thing is a slow, plodding mess. I hate that I no longer love this app. I hate more that I pay for it.
  • App going downhill Dec 15, 2019

    By Bernadette Minton
    I’ve used Evernote for years, but lately thinking of switching. Major issues: (1) search function used to be awesome t has been getting worse and worse; lately it is missing simple matches such as plural vs singular, incorrect spellings etc. with all the text matching tech available today there is no excuse for this poor level of word matching. (2) I store all my recipes in the app and a super common use case is to create list from a recipe and or switch between 2 or more recipes that I am making at the same time; Evernote behavior for both of these is very time-wasting. On my phone c every time I switch away from Evernote (to add some items to the shopping list) when I return to the recipe it starts me back at the top of the recipe again. Since many of my recipes are clipped from the web the actual recipe text may be V long due to clipping issues- so I may have to scroll 4-5-6 or more screens to get back to the list of ingredients. There’s just no excuse for losing y view location when I switch to another app for less than a minute. And most other apps are able to keep my view with no problem- for example e-commerce sites with long pages of product lists. In short Evernote should get the basics right before advanced “recommended items “ features that I don’t find particularly useful.

    It feels like development in 2021 has been slow and poorly executed. It isn't as buggy for me anymore but loading takes very long, perhaps as a way to persuade me to purchase premium for offline notes. But i am unhappy with how the app has developed lately.
  • Missing basic features Mar 15, 2021

    By Starsigma
    I used to use Evernote as it had a system for my notes both personal and work related. I could store information that I needed to reference later, etc. However it is not what I consider to be a well rounded app. As no app that makes you have to use another is considered all that great. Not being able to create reoccurring reminders is just ridiculous. This is a very basic feature for a task app to have. I simply stopped using the app altogether because I had to use other sources to make tasks and be reminded of especially when they are monthly or weekly repeating. I even periodically login just to see if this feature has been added, it hasn’t. The app really needs updated to meet this basic need, and no emailing repeating tasks to the user is not sufficient at all. As not every one is on their email constantly some only check certain times a day based on their schedules. The whole point of having an app that features task or to do items is to have push notifications for you to get reminded of the task or even projects you need to get done. No one should have to go in and manually set them up for every single day when they are repeating.
  • Terrible Update Nov 19, 2020

    By Djstep1
    I’m a long-time Evernote user, and I use the app across multiple devices. I rely on it to organize notes and recipes, and also to track bookmarked articles that I want to reference later. The most recent iOS update has made the app completely unusable. Every action is painfully slow. It crashes often. And then when I finally get a note open (like a recipe, for example), if I switch between Evernote and another app, then Evernote completely restarts and I lose my place and have to search for the note again. This happens even if I switch apps for less then a minute. On top of that, I use Evernote primarily to bookmark webpages, not to clip them. When I open up a note, it’s unclear how to force the app to take me to the original webpage. Sometimes if I tap the note to edit it, Evernote launches its embedded browser (which is ridiculously slow). But other times when I tap the note, it goes into editing mode and there aren’t any options to navigate to the original webpage. I use Evernote to reference recipes several times a week, and I had to stop using my phone for that task. Instead, I search for the recipe using Google on my laptop because it’s faster. Obviously that totally defeats the purpose of having an app on my phone. I’ve never written an App Store review before, but I’m so disappointed in this update that I felt compelled to post something. Evernote is a great product, but this is a terrible app.

    I'm a long time (since 2008) paid subscriber and former Evernote evangelist. The updates made over this past year have killed performance on my phone (to the point that I'm evaluating alternative platforms). I've written the company numerous times, posted on their social pages and even sent screen videos showing > 30 second startup and retrieval times. They need to stop with the cute widgets and home screen if it sacrifices application performance. I'd rather have fast notes.
  • Found a fix for issue below Apr 16, 2020

    By _nickname none
    I’m not a paid user which means I’m allowed to have two devices connected to my account. I ONLY use my iPhone and MacBook. When I log into one and then try to log onto the second device, the second device says that I have to unsync a device to continue using it. If I’m logging in from my iPhone, Evernote will say that my MacBook and iPhone are already connected and that I need to remove one of them to use my iPhone.. Same thing happens when I log in from my MacBook. It’ll say my iPhone and MacBook are already connected and I’ll need to remove one of them to continue on my MacBook. I ONLY have two devices that I’ve ever connected to Evernote. For some reason, Evernote registers my devices as new ones every time I switch devices. I‘ve already used my two unsyncs this month and it’s only April 10th. Don’t be fooled — free users, you’re only allowed to use one device 🙄 I’ll be on the hunt for a replacement app. Edit: I found a fix! I logged onto Evernote through my web browser and revoked access to my “three” devices. Evernote will log you out of all devices and you’ll be able to sign in again. Not sure how how long this fix will last but for now, I’m able to use both my MacBook and phone. Edit 2: Evernote has confused my 2 devices as 3 again. I’ll be on the lookout for another app.

    Update 11/2021: finally works without crashing, but none of my notes will open. And I can't save new notes. Why do I bother. Update 10/11/21: still doesn't work! Will not work on latest Android, and has not worked in several releases. Sure could use access to my notes...
  • Bring back native Dark Mode and fix time outs Oct 16, 2019

    By Deep derp dep
    Longtime Pro user of Evernote and love it. It’s great for my dream journal and all the other notes I need to take as well. I just really wish you didn’t get rid of native dark mode in the app. I like using dark mode in Evernote regardless of what my iPhone is doing. It is just much easier on my eyes and I’ve been using it that way forever. I’ve seen similar requests in the reviews to bring it back, and it really doesn’t seem like a big deal to do. Please consider it, it was a great touch and details like that matter when you’ve been using them forever. Also the app times out MUCH quicker now. I have also seen many others annoyed about this in the reviews. I, too, will be doing research in another app or browser, and quickly move back and forth between that and Evernote to make notes. It used to be no problem, but after these last updates, it essentially times out immediately upon shifting from Evernote to a different app. Coming back to Evernote, it might not have even saved what I had just written and it’s back to the top. Please fix this! I’ll gladly change my rating to 5 stars once these bugs and features are fixed. Please listen to your customers or they’ll start moving to the competitors who do.

    In the last year, I've had issues where notes fail to sync, where the app won't even load on the phone, where everything is slow. The developers appear to be flushing a good app down the toilet. I'm beginning to look for alternatives after my subscription lapses. Had this app for six years. Used to be good.

    this app has gotten terrible. i would pay for it if i had any inkling it would fix the problems. it used to be good, now its basically unusable to take quick notes. the UX gets worse and worse (no widgets for android anymore), its been freezing like crazy the last several months, and half the time i forget what i was going to write down before it finally finishes loading the note to let me edit! i use the color notes app instead now. no cloud connectivity, which sucks, but at least it works.

    Paying customer since 2010. Throughout its history this company frequently released buggy software. But they have outdone themselves with "Version 10". Core functionality gone (ie offline notes). Bugs created, not fixed (ie, horizontal swipe). Apparently they just don't care anymore. How sad. The only reason I stick with Evernote is tags. Just as soon as a worthy competitor has a product that can match Evernote tagging, I'm gone. I have had enough of such incompetence and lack of care.

    Have been an Evernote user for years and have the premium subscription...I just upgraded my phone and now have the new version of Evernote. While the app has a cool look, all of my previous notes are now unable to load, broken, and it seems gone forever... Thanks Evernote for the loss of these memories and pictures! YOU NEED TO FIX THIS ASAP IF YOU WISH TO KEEP ANY OF US LOYAL FANS OF THE EVERNOTE OF THE PAST!!!!
  • Steadily getting worse Dec 3, 2020

    By rolfejr
    I've been a paying Evernote customer for many years with a lot of my stuff in there but as time has gone on it's been more and more frustrating to use. Attachments won't download. Or you wait 5 minutes while it "says" it is downloading then gets done and nothing happens. Photos won't show. Try to bring up some reference document while you are working on something and every time your phone times out the app just can't seem to handle it and won't just leave the document/note open you were looking at - you start all over - search for the document AGAIN, wait for it to come up, etc. Search inexplicably can't find things where the title or tag has the exact word in it I'm searching for. And there have been times where I have REALLY needed to get to particular piece of information and just couldn't. That is extremely frustrating - that's the point of why I put stuff in there. This product started out awesome in the days when everyone was still using desktops. As we've progressed into to mobile era it just hasn't kept up. Trying to access my stuff in the phone app is a frustrating experience almost every time - and trying to use the site in a mobile browser is worse. I haven't put anything new in for quite some time because it just no longer fits well or just doesn't work simply with how I do things anymore in the mobile era, let alone the fact that the app in general just doesn't work well.

    Used to be an amazing free app packed with tons of features. Now they keep removing features and calling those features a premium thing. I get it takes a lot to setup an maintain apps like this. But I'm not gonna pay monthly just to keep notes. Especially when there apps that do this for free. A one time fee would be understandable.
  • Extremely unreliable. Disregard for user habits Nov 20, 2020

    By FJH-------
    I have been a loyal customer with 9000+ notes and 5+ years of premium subscription. The recent overhaul has introduced so many bugs and ridiculous design failures which are forcing me to consider alternative services. Sync has become extremely unreliable; I’ve had my edits wiped out by sync failures. As of now, Evernote isn’t letting me move my notes to different notebooks, due to some inexplicable bug. Very helpful features that provide flexibility to working on and organizing notes have been eliminated, I guess in the name of tidiness: opening multiple main windows, changing the created date (so helpful for arranging the notes in the order I want), magnifying the words in the editing window (which now cannot be done without magnifying everything else, making it unreasonably cumbersome to operate the sidebar). Then there are countless bugs throughout the software that keeps giving you frustrating surprises. The recent major upgrade demonstrates the team's disregard for the working habits of established users, and also raises concerns about quality control. In so many respects the new version simply isn't ready, and it's unclear to me why the company would be in a rush to release an update. An option for reverting to the older version would be much, much appreciated. Right now, I do not recommend Evernote to any new user. The company has demonstrated its inability to deliver a consistent and reliable product.

    New versions twice as slow, lost features My top use for Evernote on Android is captuing via screen shot. But that has slowed down from about 14s (from click to done). To over 35s. Seems like a small thing but it's incredibly annoying and makes it nearly unusable. It's the Killer feature that keeps me from switching to ROAM Research. I Uninstalled Evernote, reinstalled and deleted cache and local storage. Problem persists.
  • Latest upgrade a total FAIL Jan 11, 2021

    By xray1000000
    I want to change my rating from one star to Zero. I CANNOT STRESS STRONGLY ENOUGH HOW THE LATEST UPDATE OF EVERNOTE HAS COMPLETELY FOULED UP WHAT USED TO BE A FAVORITE APP. DON’T YOU DEVELOPERS USE EVERNOTE? (BTW I never use all caps, but this app now makes me want to scream, and feel free to substitue another word that begins with F for ‘fouled’ in my above statement.) I have been a premium Evernote user for several years. I use it extensively, and have always found it easy to use. However, the new version just updated to my iPad and I am so unhappy. First of all, it is S-O-O-O S-L-O-W. It takes forever to open the app, and once open, forever to open a Note. I post a lot of articles from webpages or the Flipboard app, and in the previous version of Evernote, these appeared immediately to my list of notes. I just sent a short article to Evernote from Flipboard that took 22 minutes to load. Evernote just showed it in the Notes list with a spinning wheel of death. Man, I hate it when software engineers turn something that worked well and that I enjoyed using into something that just aggravates and annoys me. What a pity this has happened to Evernote. Afternote: in the tag list, the A-Z index has been removed, so to skip from Apple to Zebra tags requires scrolling through the entire tag list. Why do you redesign features to make them less user optimized? My former Evernote rating of 5 stars has been reduced to one.

    Can't update billing info, no customer service. Ten years' notes at risk? App has become nearly useless, will frequently not open. Now increasingly buggy and unresponsive. Interface gets more unusable with time. Slightest side-swipe ejects you to initial screen, time-wasting. Keeps adding unwanted features while losing basic usefulness and breaking things. Do not recommend.
