    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.

    OK, are you a student having a hard time studying , well take it from me evernote is the app for you , it is perfect for taking notes , it can scan handwritten comments and printed document as well, it can record audio notes , it comes with a to-do list and what's more you can create your notes in various formats such as PDF, texts, sketches and so on. Seriously I could keep going on all day about how great this app is .It has really helped me to focus on my studies and improve my academic performance.

    You never know when inspiration is going to hit you. It may be at 3 o’clock while you’re waiting in the pickup line at your child’s school. So having a tool that lets you brainstorm anywhere is essential.

  • Useful but imperfect Nov 21, 2018

    By DonPablo21
    This is still the best app for my needs, but it has plenty of annoying quirks. I've used Evernote for many years, with over 100 notes covering everything from the grocery list to future work plans to my son's college search. I find it helpful having access to all of these notes from my Mac, iPad, and iPhone, and being able to share certain notes with specific family members or colleagues. None of its competitors offers the same combination of selective note sharing, table creation and editing, and text formatting. Yet there are still quirks. Newly edited notes take a surprising amount of time to be saved, or must be saved manually - if you aren't careful about this and the note is later edited in another device, new versions of the note are created or sometimes appended to the end of the current note without warning you. Evernote on the Mac can change the font in notes, but not on iOS, and sometimes routine copy/pasting on iOS results in text with bizarre fonts that can't be fixed on that device. The use of Apple Data Detectors also means that anything Evernote thinks might be a phone number or calendar event is highlighted like a clickable link - I wish this could be turned off.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Amazing customer service and great study tool Jan 23, 2020

    By 3747282847363
    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!

    This program was super until they started enhancing it. Now it's clugy and erratic. It needed a better editor for the Android version but now it drops part of a file and doesn't sync well. It seems to have file size limits. It is much easier to use than Microsoft Notes, but it needs a good dose of surgery to fix whatever ails it. Then I'll go back to a 5 star rating.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.

    It's fine, but a couple months ago they did an update that made the paid version almost necessary. Im still using the free version because (1) It's backed to my e mail, (2) I've used it for years and they make it a pain to transfer notes to other apps, and (3) the tasks feature. Wouldn't recommend unless you can afford the upgraded versions.

    By Kevin Hay
    The latest update has made problems worse (06/27/22). Fails to save is Far worse!! Fails to Save notes.. Still... (09/21) Waiting for an update to fix what you've broken. 12 year happy, paying user, up to March. Painfully Slow, two minutes to open, more for a note, to clip/add photos, even open offline is slow. Often circles unending. What is Worse, 4 out of 5 times, it Fails to save properly, work is lost... often duplicate notes are made and must be reviewed, wasting more time. Worthless.
  • 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've been a customer for years and used to find the app very good, but recently the app is just impossible to be used. It very often does not open a note (it keeps "synching"), or when I'm editing a note it changes the word by itself, doing things that I don't want, or not saving what I wrote. I've spent hours trying to use the app and therefore I'll not contact the support as you'll probably ask me to do. Maybe another upgrade will be helpful (otherwise I'll use other app).

    Seriously dislike the view. The old version was better. Now the app is constantly closing the keyboard. I typed up a Hugh note last night and saved it, came back this morning and only a quarter of it was there. I know I saved it because I did so every other sentence just to be sure. How is is possible for a perfectly amazing app to go south so fast. They tried to fix what wasn't broke and now it's complete rubbish. F this app, I'm out.
  • 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.

    Was good before I discovered Notion. Not even worth it for simple quick notes. It also now has the dumbest paid feature. You can't adjust your home page without updating. That's a little silly to me considering other options that you pay for. They seem to keep restricting the free version. Pretty soon it will be pay only. This has been sitting unused on my phone for over 2 years now. It's time I uninstall and delete my account.
  • Updating review Apr 9, 2022

    By izungu
    I gave this app a one star review a few weeks ago, and have since received a response from the development team. For context, I have been using Evernote for more than a decade, and have been a paying user for many of those years. My early experiences were fantastic; the program ran smoothly, I literally never had a reason to complain. As I have relied more and more on it over the last couple of years, the bugginess and overall poor performance of the app has become too much to ignore, prompting my negative review. The response I received from the development team leads me to bemoan the fact there is not a rating below a single star. For every issue that I identified as a problem to the team that reached out, I kid you not the response was a variation of: “This is a known issue, we have no timeline for when it will be fixed.” While I may have an appreciation for the honesty of that response, there is nothing about that which gives me any incentive to continue to grind through a frustrating experience with an app I literally use daily when there are other options/ecosystems out there for me to try. It will be an unbelievably painful process for me to in fact extricate myself from Evernote’s ecosystem, but at this point it would be the definition of insanity for me to remain in it - they know there are problems, they have no idea when (if?) they will be fixed. Buyer beware; this is not the Evernote of 5 or so years ago.

    Constant downgrades make this once-great app a pain to use. Like everyone else is saying, it used to be fantastic, but is no longer. The more recent issue is that 95% of the time when I try to edit a note the app just freezes and crashes. Nice. The company also pushes premium upgrades WAY too much. I do like Evernote a lot, but it is becoming increasingly impossible to use.
  • 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.

    Evernote Premium has been my go-to app for saving important notes and information. However, I recently discovered that I can no longer print notes, not even from the web. Even worse, I cannot convert my notes to PDF using Adobe Acrobat. Says conversion "not supported". I would drop this app immediately, but I have years of notes saved. Frustrating as hell...😤

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.
  • Crucial to my lifestyle. One issue Feb 22, 2020

    By ChrisLee_38
    I love this app. The organization of notebooks is essential to my lifestyle. I use notebooks for school, work, and my writing hobby, as well as my songwriting. If evernote randomly vanished one day, I’d be in trouble. I absolutely love the app. I have it on my iPhone 6 and my Macbook. It works great on both, with one reoccurring bug. On the iPhone, the app crashes every time I lock my phone. Even if I lock it for 2 seconds just to test this theory, it will crash without fail. Fortunately, it ALWAYS saves the note before closing the app (props to you, devs). But because the app does use a hefty amount of battery while using it, I like to lock my phone between writing things down. But every time I do that, I have to launch the app again and load up the note. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but to no avail. That’s my only complaint. I encourage everyone in my circle to use the app. I’ve never paid a cent to use it, and I’m nowhere near where I need to be to require premium. So I find it’s well worth the app space and little glitches.
  • Wonderful app—watch consistency limited and spotty. Feb 27, 2020

    By gvmanderson7
    Love the app. Interface is amazing. Connectivity superb. However, there are only 20 spaces for notes available on the watch, and when you have 200 or so, that’s just not convenient. Also, though I have not submitted a customer service request and that may negate many individuals opinions and the value they place in this review, this is something that has manifested through multiple Apple Watch updates: the app on the watch will simply open up and show no notes. None whatsoever. I have tried syncing the app, I have tried updating the app, closing the app on the watch and phone and restarting both the watch and the phone...no dice. Definitely a minute bug that could be fixed and bring the Evernote app up to full potential. That and expand the number of notes available on the watch and make the search feature more effective as it has never found a note I was looking for when I used the voice command. But again, love the app, LOVE the app, just a few tweaks and we’re golden.
  • IOS Version 10.0.3. Is it Me? Oct 10, 2020

    By hmmn2
    I’ve used Evernote since March 2014. I updated to 10.0.3 a day ago & I regret it. I use Evernote on my IOS iphone & I use it a lot. Evernote on my phone was good before the update. One day after the update I learn that Evernote does not have PRINTING / ADOBE PDF feature as was in the version before the update. Also, the “Find in note” does not work in the notes created before the update but work in newly created notes. Printing & Find A Note are two features that I can’t do without. Evernote states in their documentation that PRINTING is not available yet in the IOS version. The new updated version does have some nice editing features such as undo & more highlight & font colors & font sizing capabilities. The inability to PRINT and the inability to make Adobe PDF’s is a game changer. I’m not sure what I’m going to do. I have almost 12,000 notes & for that reason, I’m hesitant to move on to something else. I’m disappointed in the latest update.
  • It’s a great tool Oct 15, 2018

    By doxzero
    It’s a great tool for various different reasons. I think an interesting set of features would be a kind of automation, e.g., the ability to set up conditions so if I write certain words the note is added to certain folders or has certain reminders set to it or maybe even triggers a notification to specific people, etc. Also, something I think should be implemented is title caps in .… well, the TITLES of notes. Why is that not a thing? Or at least a toggleable setting? Lastly, why is it that the icon badge notification number is not at all connected to the actual trigger of the notification. I should open the app and it should be totally clear what the notification number is referring to, whether it’s reminders or updates or whatever. The user is just left adrift once he taps on the icon and then has no clue what triggered the notification. It’s just plain bad UX and your UX folks should really be talked to about that because it’s rather fundamental stuff they are missing.
  • Evernote still the best for organizing and searching Sep 7, 2018

    By MikeInCarrolltonTexas
    I have tried OneNote a few times to see if it was as good as Evernote. OneNote has good editing tools within a note, but seems to be lacking when comes to FINDING your notes. I like Evernote’s search ability - select one ore more tags or a notebook - and then search within that context. I like that you can see Evernote’s list of tags at a glance on the left - and then quickly see a list of those notes that have that tag. And when you put in a search string, Evernote instantly shows you a list of notes that match, along with the first few lines of the note - even if what you’re searching for is within an embedded image (or PDF file since I have Premium). This ability to quickly find what you’re looking for within a thousand notes is critical for me. I don’t think ON is a replacement for Evernote for me - because of this alone. I hope Evernote stays afloat for a long time to come!
  • Useful but imperfect Nov 21, 2018

    By DonPablo21
    This is still the best app for my needs, but it has plenty of annoying quirks. I've used Evernote for many years, with over 100 notes covering everything from the grocery list to future work plans to my son's college search. I find it helpful having access to all of these notes from my Mac, iPad, and iPhone, and being able to share certain notes with specific family members or colleagues. None of its competitors offers the same combination of selective note sharing, table creation and editing, and text formatting. Yet there are still quirks. Newly edited notes take a surprising amount of time to be saved, or must be saved manually - if you aren't careful about this and the note is later edited in another device, new versions of the note are created or sometimes appended to the end of the current note without warning you. Evernote on the Mac can change the font in notes, but not on iOS, and sometimes routine copy/pasting on iOS results in text with bizarre fonts that can't be fixed on that device. The use of Apple Data Detectors also means that anything Evernote thinks might be a phone number or calendar event is highlighted like a clickable link - I wish this could be turned off.

    By James Palmer Lewis
    This program was super until they started enhancing it. Now it's clugy and erratic. It needed a better editor for the Android version but now it drops part of a file and doesn't sync well. It seems to have file size limits. It is much easier to use than Microsoft Notes, but it needs a good dose of surgery to fix whatever ails it. Then I'll go back to a 5 star rating.
  • 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.
  • Daily Staple, but has issues - 2nd Opinion Jun 24, 2020

    By icotteng
    I concur with the reviewer who has a similar review title to my own. I use Evernote for literally all my writing and have for over 4 years. The desktop versions work beautifully for both Mac and Windows, but the iOS version is buggy and has been for the past year. These bugs seem like minor issues that should’ve been taken care of awhile ago, for such a popular, premium app. In addition to the app closing each time you switch to another app or you put your phone to sleep (as mentioned by the previous reviewer), the app also has major issues with bulletpoint/numbered lists, especially when you use nested lists, as I do literally all the time. It fails to number consecutive items after you’ve hit “return”, sometimes it deletes a number associated with a previous item, and it also shifts entire blocks of text left or right when no such justification should occur. Overall, I love the app, I just would like to see these persistent headaches solved in future versions.
  • Almost perfect May 18, 2022

    By Rex Albel
    The app is very powerful. There’s lots of features and customization options, and while I’m not a fan of paying 10$ for them all, it just doesn’t have competition. However, there’s a certain lack of refinement that would be helpful. Some features take too much digging and clicking to get to. Even more important is the “organization system. Having only two layers to organize your notes and files is restricting. I’ve been testing out a beautiful app called Noto which is unfortunately missing several features that Evernote has. However, the simplicity of using the features is awesome and makes things quicker, and the folders and display are awesome. As someone trying to start game design, having content organized is important and while tags help, some things are better in multiple layers of folders. If it had sharing i would probably give up some Evernote features for noto. Please consider adding more subdivision of of notebooks.
  • Great idea, great app, a number of annoying things Jun 21, 2019

    By amanante
    It’s a great app. I would easily put 5/5 if not only for annoying little nuances that make it more difficult to use. I went online to see if any of the issues I experienced were already addressed in the past. Turns out, many of them were addressed a long time ago (like 5-6 years back) - and the Evernote team simply does not seem to care to fix them. For instance, tables are not mobile friendly. Like at all. You have to swipe back and forth to navigate. You can’t change the size of pictures. You can’t create a table on the app. There are only 3 font sizes. You can’t select thumbnail for your notebooks and notes, it selects it for you - which is pretty irritating. The size of annotations are not uniform which means they may appear smaller or bigger depending on the size of your picture.. Etcetera, etcetera... Evernote team! Is it that difficult to fix all of this?!? It’s been taking you guys years now. Maybe you should hire new developers?
  • Songwriter Loves this app Jun 6, 2022

    By LICRYNO
    I can happily say that I’ve found a reliable resource for writing my songs on the go, between devices. I don’t really use this app in the way it’s intended - collaboratively. I work alone. When I have a song ‘chart’ (words and chords) to share, I export to PDF and share. I’m able to work on a song’s lyrics on the go, notating and saving changes to my words/chords in written form. Minus 1 star: This could all change at any moment, which I find terrifying. Evernote people can’t stop changing things for cosmetic appeal. It’s a sickness, changing things that work, for no apparent reason. It’s a disease of big tech companies. I really wish they’d just leave things the way they are and adapt to the new devices without expanding expanding and further watering down the attention paid to details of the app. I use this in conjunction with DropBox, putting my demo audio in dropbox. Dropbox is better for playing back audio. I can add from Voice memos to Dropbox easier than Evernote because it’s folders. The one thing that’s terrifying is when you don’t have internet connection and it appears all your work has gone offline. I wish there was an ‘offline’ option. All in all, I’m happy with my choice to organize all my complicated whimsical songwriting here, so that if I have an idea for a lyric to a song I’ve put away for a couple months, I can add it and know I didn’t waste a creative moment.
  • Great app, but... Aug 18, 2021

    By Prsdc
    This is one of the few apps I pay for, and use almost daily, but I certainly like the functionality of the laptop version better. One thing I use this for is shopping lists. I have standard items that I purchase from certain stores I frequent. So I created lists of those items with check boxes. I wish I could turn off the newer feature developers decided was an improvement: to cross out items that are checked off. This may be helpful in task completion but it is not helpful for shopping lists that one will be rereading periodically if one has to read thru all the cross off lines of the list. Another reviewer mentioned the inconvenience,while following a recipe stored on the phone, of the screen blacking out AND reverting to the main page of the app if it is not touched in a short time while you are prepping food. Maybe you could add a "lock on" option to the app that one could select when following recipes.
  • Font size issue. Sep 30, 2018

    By 1 & only bagel boy
    Got this app after friends recommended it and I’m loving it. I’m more organized and productive already. Love the notebook layout and the cross platform from Windows to iPhone. But there’s an issue that reallllly bothers me. Font sizes aren’t consistent across the app on Windows 10 and the iPhone app. I ran a test to see what font sizes corresponds to small, medium, and large. Small on iPhone is 10 on Windows app. Medium is 14. Large is 18. Except something written in “small” on an iPhone, when viewed on a PC and compared to something written in 10 on the Windows app, the text originally written on Windows is larger than the text written on iPhone, despite them both being “10”. If I highlight the text from the iPhone and then select 10 again, it will grow ever so slightly to match the PC font size of 10. The opposite happens if I write something in 10 on PC and then view it on an iPhone and compare it to something written in “small.” What is written in “small” is larger than what was written in 10 on the PC. This is really frustrating because it results in inconsistencies throughout your notes. I know you guys care about organization, design, and consistency. So please fix this issue. Other than that, the app is great, would be 5 stars, but this is really frustrating. You can’t have an app meant for organization have something as basic as font size be inconsistent like this. Thanks for reading this feedback.
  • 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's fine, but a couple months ago they did an update that made the paid version almost necessary. Im still using the free version because (1) It's backed to my e mail, (2) I've used it for years and they make it a pain to transfer notes to other apps, and (3) the tasks feature. Wouldn't recommend unless you can afford the upgraded versions.
  • 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.

    I've used this app for many years. It's great as a memo pad, able to lock notes. It WAS fast and easy to use, now it cluttered and messy. Every time I go to open a note it takes forever, open and close multi times to see the note. I don't need or want my stuff in a cloud, leave the option to save locally.
  • Could be better Sep 16, 2020

    By Wrobl1bn
    So, as of this year I decided to take a swing at Evernote. At this point I've been using it for about 2 months and I have serval gripes. For starters there is only one color for highlighting, which is awful. There also isn't any intuitive way to insert tables that I've been able to find, luckily I've been able to get around this by pasting snips of them in from word but it's far from optimal. I'd also like to have sub-folders within groups. It'd be nice to have a general folder for a class and then subfolders for in-person lectures, online lectures, and notes from readings. Upsides are the tagging system, that's been rather nice to have in the absence of subfolders, the UI is also decent and I haven't had any issues with creating folders or navigating between them. Overall more downsides then upsides, and that's with the premium version. I'm likely going to return to simply using Onenote like I used to in a month or so at this rate. I'll hop back over again in a year to two to see if there were any changes.
  • Two problems to fix Aug 26, 2018

    By BlindInsight
    When taking a note, there are many problems with Voiceover. First, when swiping to the right, sometimes it skips over the title field & other times it skips over the multi-line text field. When typing in the field, you can’t move by letter or word & have it affect where the cursor is located. When The keyboard is brought up from simply looking at a note, the cursor is somewhere in the middle of the text already in it. Unlike most text fields, double tapping on it does not move the cursor to the start or the end of the text field. You also cannot listen to the entire note when the keyboard is available. This makes creating & editing notes inaccessible to Voiceover. Sharing to Evernote takes a long time after entering text & choosing the folder. Once I hit save, a loading icon is shown while I have to wait for a long time to share it. If these problems are solved, I will be satisfied with Evernote. Until Evernote is Voiceover accessible, I will use another note taking app that is accessible.
  • Supposedly Better, But Worse in Ways Feb 2, 2021

    By Alexander Hendrickson
    Even though there have been a lot of upgrades and optimizations, one of the most frequent and pervasive issues in the official online support system and elsewhere is the CRITICAL fault of recent edits not being saved and being completely lost. This impacts the usability in a huge way, because whole edits and work done is frequently lost if you aren’t doing a constant backup tango that the previous version never required. And even when you do, sometimes it still loses it, especially when multitasking and switching between apps. Before the new upgrades, I never had to think to manually sync after every important change I made to a document, now I am hitting the check mark to close editing on a document (something the old version never had, and did fine without) and swiping down on the note list in order to force a sync to the web version sometimes every half paragraph or so, just to make sure I don’t lose a critical thought.
  • It’s ok Apr 23, 2021

    By hARTzteacher
    I have ADHD. I’m also a teacher. I need lots of lists for various school and home tasks, easy ways to organize thoughts, places to put ideas for future lessons, and I need reminders, with due dates and times. This app seems to take a while to load. My adhd brain doesn’t have the patience or the focus to wait long when I have an idea. By the time it opens, I’ve often forgot what I was going to input! I’m not a fan of the layout and organization of the notes. I don’t find it easy to find the one I need quickly. I thought I’d like the quick scratch pad but then those notes get lost easy unless I delete the automated title and rename it. Then I have to click through menus in order to move it to the correct list because it automatically chooses for you. It’s an ok app but not meant for someone with quick ideas and many different lists to organize. The act of writing the notes in the correct spot is too cumbersome for someone busy and needing to work quickly and efficiently.
  • Thumbnails May 25, 2021

    By KimstersArt
    Please tell me that you will finally add the ability to choose which image in the note to be the thumbnail displayed in the list of notes. I am an artist and take several images of a work during its progress and want the finished piece to be the thumbnail. It is really annoying to always enter the note when I am looking for a particular color scheme, piece, etc. rather than quickly scanning the list. A monumental waste of time. I keep using Evernote (for several years now) because I have not found another options that works with tags they way I want. I have to say, most of the other options DO have the ability to choose your thumbnail from your images. I also am very disappointed in the latest updates for IOS iPad. You removed features I used to use all the time. There are a couple of new features I am learning to like but would really like to have the alphabet index back so that I can quickly jump about in my many, many notes.
  • Continues to tighten the noose May 17, 2021

    By GuzzyRon
    I’ve had this app for a looong time. From the time they were “3Banana” and the to “Catch”. You used to be able to use on any/all your devices and across all interphases (app or web). But they continue to restrict access. Right now, you’re restricted to app or web only and not more than 2 SPECIFIC devices. They have continued to tighten the noose, which is a shame. Also, the recent upgrade to “Home” is a horrible feature in my opinion. When you’re not in “home” and using one of your notes, mere scrolling up or down easily causes the page to swipe right and return home. Finally, the search functionality is broken. When you perform a search, it returns a list of notes containing the search word(s). But when you select any of the notes, it doesn’t take you to the first instance of the search word(s), like it should. You still have to scroll thru the document and find the words you’re lookin for — when pretty useless, IMO!
  • 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.

    By Peter Harrison
    This used to be a favorite app but their recent updates have ruined the text editor when I'm using my Chromebook. Important tools, like cut and paste unformatted text using ctrl-shift-v from a keyboard, do not work. There are no tools for removing formating, changing fonts, font size, or margins. So, if you're collecting research notes from disparate sources, the note quickly becomes a headache-inducing crazy quilt. I hope they fix this.

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Recent update glitch Nov 22, 2021

    By Fotophile
    The most recent update is stressing me out. Every note I make doesn’t auto save correctly and it’s erasing over half of my work. Internet connection is strong so I know it’s not an issue, it’s specifically auto updating after I’ve already saved my work and closed out after it shows it’s saved, so its erasing my work to a previous file on the cloud when I open it again. Stuff I save at 7am will auto update at 10:30am erasing half my stuff, even if I’m just opening a new note or a different project. Complete stress inducer when I have deadlines! I’m now copying my work to save it in another cloud system when I’m done here, which kinda makes this feel like a pointless subscription unless I just save it in Evernote and write it elsewhere. I’ve never had this problem, ever, as a 6 yr sub member jumping from four different devices in the same 15 minutes with no issues ever. Now it’s stressful! I love my options in Evernote compared to other online digital storage for writers. I’m on an iPad Air2 fully updated, T-Mobile service, please help! I don’t have issues accessing or saving writing on my other devices, only when I use this device app. Will update my review to reflect any resolved bug updates🙏🏻
  • Maybe time to switch Jan 17, 2021

    By riverwind91
    I have been using Evernote for probably ten years. A couple years ago when it started to limit two devices, I tolerated since two devices are mostly enough. Once in a long while when I need to use a third device just to take a random note, I’d go to website and do it there. Unfortunately yesterday when attempted to do so, I found web version is counting as a device and being limited as well. I don’t really want to complain since I’ve used the free service for that many years. I understand the need to monetize otherwise the company will just die. However, there are so many alternatives which do exact the same in slightly different ways, but free and probably better performance. I think Evernote have missed the best time to grow revenue. Or has it ever figured out the best way to make money? Ads, selling goods, anybody remember Evernotes selling socks? Forcing users to buy or harassing users with premium upgrades are suboptimal business practice. Maybe it’s time for me to explore other options and start to switch. I’m afraid that one day Evernote is going to limit users to one device, and eventually die to competition. Sad but this is a brutal market.
  • UI Overhaul on iOS is poorly tested Mar 22, 2022

    By Ari Live
    I have subscribed and used Evernote since 2008. The recent overhaul of the User Interface is lagging horribly. While I appreciate NEW, I kinda hate it as implemented. The sync technologies are so slow that if I get out of the screen showing the bot is synchronizing, it is causing conflict copies. This is stupid and careless. Your engineering department needs to think in terms of real world and not “in a perfect world”. It makes me more inefficient as a paying subscriber - over $1209 of my own money and helped drive revenue for them by showing endless clients and family friends this great tool. Please show your users respect by developing with integrity to what the USERS need and not what UI nor UX people want inside the business, but the USERS. Responsiveness, speed and sync are super important and this current revision of the Evernote system is much slower on my iPhone11 with no other apps running and tons of free space. It is really important engineering and product management do not always go with NEW programming in replacement of stable and reliable. “New” is third or forth importance compared to reliable syncing, drawing of the II in the app and indexing
  • No customer service Oct 5, 2017

    By SoonerAce
    So I've been using Evernote for over three years now and I really do love some of its features. However, two things really grind my gears. 1) When they changed to basic free accounts vs. paid upgrade accounts, we lost the ability to access on all devices as they limited basic users to two devices. I have it on my phone & laptop, so I can't have the app on my tablet. So I tried to access through the browser on my tablet and it wasn't "formatted" for that kind of access. Now it just forces you to the app store. Beyond irritating. 2) There's ZERO customer service. As a basic user, your only option is the user forum which has too many posts to read, and it's just users - not Evernote help desk. So how some rando user is supposed to answer my account-specific issue is beyond me. Not only that, but from what I see in the forums from paid users, Evernote takes weeks to respond to inquiries, if at all. So what's the point of upgrading to paid service? I don't understand how they run a successful user-based business without supporting the users. It's really disappointing because when functioning properly, it's a great product.

    The latest update has made problems worse (06/27/22). Fails to save is Far worse!! Fails to Save notes.. Still... (09/21) Waiting for an update to fix what you've broken. 12 year happy, paying user, up to March. Painfully Slow, two minutes to open, more for a note, to clip/add photos, even open offline is slow. Often circles unending. What is Worse, 4 out of 5 times, it Fails to save properly, work is lost... often duplicate notes are made and must be reviewed, wasting more time. Worthless.

    I've been a customer for years and used to find the app very good, but recently the app is just impossible to be used. It very often does not open a note (it keeps "synching"), or when I'm editing a note it changes the word by itself, doing things that I don't want, or not saving what I wrote. I've spent hours trying to use the app and therefore I'll not contact the support as you'll probably ask me to do. Maybe another upgrade will be helpful (otherwise I'll use other app).

    Seriously dislike the view. The old version was better. Now the app is constantly closing the keyboard. I typed up a Hugh note last night and saved it, came back this morning and only a quarter of it was there. I know I saved it because I did so every other sentence just to be sure. How is is possible for a perfectly amazing app to go south so fast. They tried to fix what wasn't broke and now it's complete rubbish. F this app, I'm out.
  • 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.

    Was good before I discovered Notion. Not even worth it for simple quick notes. It also now has the dumbest paid feature. You can't adjust your home page without updating. That's a little silly to me considering other options that you pay for. They seem to keep restricting the free version. Pretty soon it will be pay only. This has been sitting unused on my phone for over 2 years now. It's time I uninstall and delete my account.
  • Updating review Apr 9, 2022

    By izungu
    I gave this app a one star review a few weeks ago, and have since received a response from the development team. For context, I have been using Evernote for more than a decade, and have been a paying user for many of those years. My early experiences were fantastic; the program ran smoothly, I literally never had a reason to complain. As I have relied more and more on it over the last couple of years, the bugginess and overall poor performance of the app has become too much to ignore, prompting my negative review. The response I received from the development team leads me to bemoan the fact there is not a rating below a single star. For every issue that I identified as a problem to the team that reached out, I kid you not the response was a variation of: “This is a known issue, we have no timeline for when it will be fixed.” While I may have an appreciation for the honesty of that response, there is nothing about that which gives me any incentive to continue to grind through a frustrating experience with an app I literally use daily when there are other options/ecosystems out there for me to try. It will be an unbelievably painful process for me to in fact extricate myself from Evernote’s ecosystem, but at this point it would be the definition of insanity for me to remain in it - they know there are problems, they have no idea when (if?) they will be fixed. Buyer beware; this is not the Evernote of 5 or so years ago.

    Constant downgrades make this once-great app a pain to use. Like everyone else is saying, it used to be fantastic, but is no longer. The more recent issue is that 95% of the time when I try to edit a note the app just freezes and crashes. Nice. The company also pushes premium upgrades WAY too much. I do like Evernote a lot, but it is becoming increasingly impossible to use.
  • 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.

    Update 6/5/22 It's even slower than ever. Old review... You need to clear the data almost after every update. The snapshot note used to be very fast after taking the picture with your camera. You click back several times and still in the note editing mode. Sometimes you become very frustrated due to the slowness of the application. It seems like the only value left me is that I saved all my notes on their site.

    Update It's June 2022 and the freezing is back and more than ever.🥶 Jan 5—Still horribly freezing and glitchy Update 11/4/20 Got better the went back to being glitchy. Freezes until it feels like unfreezing when I try to edit any notes. Annoying. It shouldn't be this hard to write a note. ---- Was nice at first. Glitchy now. When I open a not and hit "edit," the cursor and entire app freezes for several moments, and will let you do nothing. Then eventually it releases and allows you to type.
