DEAR EVERYNOTE PLEASE HAVE A STROKE A DIE THANK YOU
Missing data. When I selected a tag, everything created in 2021 was missing. I didn't notice it until now because most of my usege is on an iPad. This may have been fixed already. My desktop version is at 10.6.9. If the latest version fixes it, I'll update the review.
I started using Evernote back in 2016 and I used to love it. The past few years I haven’t really used it as much, but I recently I got an email saying there was a suspicious login from Argentina. Not quite sure why Evernote would make it possible for people from a completely different country to log in via a new device.. instead of blocking them and requiring a confirmation though email. I tried to sign into my account, but I wasnt able to. In order to sign in I was sent a link to change my password, but when I clicked the link, a warning popped up that informed me a virus was detected. Don’t let the sign-in feature of Evernote fool you… this app is not safe. I lost all of my notes from college and I’m not too thrilled about it. Fortunately, since I only used the free version, I never paid any subscrition fees. I’m glad I didnt waste my money on this app. If you use Evernote, you are definitely going to risk getting hacked. Do yourself a favor and don’t download or use this app, I’m sure there are other note-taking apps that are safer and work better than this one.
Really slow and lagging. Lack original functions
Used to be the best, now considerably the worst. Can't believe they're allowed to charge ppl money to use this lol - From, Evernote User for 6 years. also.. the Mac client needs a lot more love :/
Been using Evernote on a daily basis for the last 10 years. Started with a basic account then upgraded beacuse of how much I use it. I write a lot everyday in two different laguages and also need to sync on different devices. Evernote had been great for this. I'm working with a legacy version 7.14 now because of the updates. They droped tabs and spelling check and autocorrect in Mac OS which are fundamental for me. I have been asking about it and they say they will integrate it sometime in the future so for now I'm stuck with legacy, it was that or using Notes and then copying to Evernote. Reading about this "cool stuff" they're adding in new updates but not what I need is becoming troublesome. Two stars for the previous good years.
The latest version crashes a ton. I find myself having to quit completely and reload multiple times per day in order to fix problems like... not being able to create a new note, because the title and description fields are unselectable. Considering the frequency of the issue, it is unbelievable that it made it into the live product. They raised the prices to boot, and have keyboard shortcuts that don't match web/note standards, so you have to remember theirs when switching from other apps. At some point, they seem to have lost their focus on being the best at what they do.
I love it when companies like Evernote try to reinvent themselves in a whole new way. I know it can be difficult for the developers to read the negative reviews from people that have not really studied the help and videos provided by Evernote, but if you really look at how beautiful and organized the new version is, you'll see there's a lot to admire. While I can still use some help they are making the app ready for the next level. I may be one of the longest living subscribers to Evernote but I can't tell you how many times at an airport I needed some thing, at a school function, or an accounting office, or Evernote came to the rescue with it instant search. I love that I can scan docs direct to it from so many standard scanners including the one built into the phone. With all that said keep working on it because you have plenty of loyal fans who will stick with you through the changes
I've been using Evernote for at least 10 years now and I used to love it. Unfortunately, it has become so big and bloated that it is on the verge of being useless. The biggest problem I find is the search function. It takes forever to search a note and find what you need. Many times when you do search a note, you won't be able to select the note to even see it, you have to restart the app. If it does show up, the app won't tell you how many instances of the search term it found, so you have to scroll to find other instances of the search term. Syncing has been problematic too. I find that it sometimes can't reconcile entries made on multiple devices forcing you to comb through archived copies of a particular note. These problems are true of the computer and mobile versions. Sadly, it's time to move on. I'm switching to something new when my premium membership runs out this year. I can't recommend this app in any way.
I'm a long time user. The user interface gets worse everytime they "upgrade" this product. They deprecate features like tab controls for years then bring it back only to introduce a terrible multipane UI structure that forces you to do gymnastics with way too many mouse clicks and resizing/positioning. It also forces you to use too much real estate on your desktop for what shoul dbe efficient layout of main and detached windows. Newly created notes lock out fields like the subject if the note - which forces you to exit/restart the app to fix. The tool bar menu is not customizable - again forcing multiple clicks to get to commands like highlight text. The search function is a complete mess - overcomplicated. I assume they do absolutely zero user testing - otherwise how could the design be this terrible. I could go on but I think you get the picture.
