it just works
Just got an email offering 50% off but no discount when I sign in to order. What gives?
Waste time to log in and keep changing password. Tried different accounts but always had problem with passwords.
Constant, and I mean CONSTANT pop ups to upgrade. As in every time you use it. And when you decline, EVEN MORE pop ups, “warning” you that your “special offer” will not last. It truly ruins the experience.
I’ve used Evernote since 2011. I spent 4 hours trying to really understand and master the new update. Clearly, it works for some people. For me it is counterintuitive, needlessly complex, limiting, and time-consuming to use. It is as difficult as ever — more difficult, in fact — to navigate on a tablet, to organize files, to create and store quick notes (this last part has gotten slightly better). The search features are great. The internet clipping is pretty good. For everything else, there are better programs. I’m finally giving up and migrating out today.
1 - Notes not sycing: For some reason despite decades of work - Evernote still cannot get iPad version of their app to consistently sync. Little green "syncing" bubbles appear on all sorts of notes. Is the note synced or syncing? Who knows. 2 - Duplicating Notes: Routinely I see "a duplicate of this note has been detected." How is this now occurring 10 years on? All manner of notes are now getting duplicates at unexpected times. Get ready to lose work in all new ways. Here how. Start editing a note on your iPad. Walk over to your Mac, make a few changes. Go back to your iPad, type something and exit the note. Now all your Mac changes will get overwritten and erased by the iPad. Additionally, whereas other companies like GitHub or any of dozens of other systems show you the differences - EverNote got rid of that feature and instead files the differences away in a folder. You get to read the ENTIRE note to find the changes yourself. Ever tried to find the differences between two multipage ToDo lists? Good luck. This means you get to lose doing tasks in all new ways because of Evernote. Evernote also has bugs so that you won’t always be alerted if there is a conflict. (The red explanation mark rarely appears notifying you of a change.) Do you have a team and want to share notes? Good luck. You can easily overwrite each other’s work. We now have dozens and dozens of these “conflicting note” files. Also, there is no simultaneous team editing. If one person starts typing, everyone else gets to watch a rainbow wheel that locks them out. Google Docs solved this years ago. Evernote’s engineers still can’t figure it out - and yet all they need to do is create a new type of note that discards their terrible Evernote XML standard *just* like other engineering teams had to create new standards to make it work. The sad part is - Google hasn’t added images and mixed page ToDos to Google Keep - so at least for the short time Evernote survives and you are stuck with it. That said, it is clear that EverNote is on borrowed time as the moment Keep or one of their competitors adds images and ToDos - what’s really to keep us using EverNote? Skitch? What are all those engineers in EverNote even doing? It hasn’t changed a bit in years. ———- Below is from my previous review with cover all the other features Evernote still hasn’t been able to duplicate from OneNote. Attachments are all Zipped before being inserted. This means to edit files - you unzip them. OneNote just stores the file - so it is one-click to open it. This makes workflows much more seamless in OneNote when using multiple files. --Why did EverNote create its own font color change panel? Strangely, EverNote has defied typical convention for font color changes - adding additional clicks and mouse movement. Whereas in most applications you choose a color and then you can use it by one-clicking the font color change icon - EverNote makes it two clicks and forces mouse movement. The first click is to open their custom color panel. The panel then opens somewhere on the page unattached to the color change item - then you must click on that panel to change the color. This workflow becomes cumbersome with lots of color changes in a document. Plus, the panel, which is unresizable, takes up unneeded space on the screen. This is another area where EverNote can learn from better practices in other applications.
This app is trash. I can’t even efficiently view my notes without being bombarded with promotions to sign up for premium. It’s a note taking app... premium what? Lame. Use another one in my opinion. The default notes app is superior now.
I have enjoyed this app for 9 years in one iPad and one iPhone. After my last phone upgrade, the Evernote only works on the iPad. I have Unsync the old iPhone, as instructed, with no luck. My account shows that I have consumed one of the 3 unsync available, but the only option now is to upgrade my account. 2 stars because i can not find technical support for free account, and because this phone device migration should not have been an issue. I did this 3 years ago with no problem.
try delete 60 messages! It plain does not work. Unmanageable.
Please give option to skip the home page and go straight to notes.
