Buggy and too expensive
Skryer on 11/18/2017
Bad pricing change along with bugs causing notes to be overwritten with other notes? I use this for recipes and randomly some will be overwritten with other recipes in my notebook. No way to go back with out paying for the top tier subscription. I moved to OneNote and have been much happier!
dsterry on 11/18/2017
Not going to nearly double my subscription for product that’s already making enough per year.... #nevernope
Back button
Jakedkham on 11/17/2017
Back button is gone
Love it
faisalislam on 11/17/2017
I love Evernote, iPhone version has some lacking but it is the only "whole package" - works greatly on Mac and iOS. Can’t imagine switching.
Not working on iPhone X!!!
tmo19 on 11/17/2017
Keeps closing me out of the app on my iPhone X! PLEASE FIX!
Too slow to use effectively
jdouglasj on 11/17/2017
I’ve been an Evernote user since 2008 and I have over 10,000 notes. The performance on this latest version on the iPad is so slow it has rendered the program almost unusable. I search and have to sit and wait 30seconds or more for results. Also, when I put my search terms in quotes it no longer recognizes the quotation marks. I’ve been in touch with technical support and they recognize the problem but they said they have no idea when it’ll ever be fixed.
Before paid version; Was an Excellent Useful App. Now it's slow
Olympia3 on 11/16/2017
I really like Evernote before paid version restrictions went into place-11/16/2017 lately evernote has decided to make me delete content because it exceeds my paid scale 50mb! So basically I have to delete a portion of my note to continue using any other part of evernote! After paid version: Except now it lags/ hangs every time I return to use it, even though I'm not signed out and app is open on iPad Pro. Annoying Past review: Version 8.0.3 hangs & very slow to load. Asks for password too often. 02/2017 update: on my IPad Pro: Evernote has gone downhill since it is now by subscription. I am a subscriber. Now I am not able to past into existing note to continue my research. This is terrible. Update app please, it use to work perfectly earlier last year. Past review: new paid version; takes forever to load, always asking for my password, slow to sync. Now that I'm paying it is much worse. 1st review before paid versions;Great for notes, saving web pages, text, photos....sharing with a team. Works on iPad great, appears on desktop & phone seamlessly.
Bait and switched
No_name_given on 11/16/2017
Huge price increases. Good luck turning off all the ads. Takes magic to close the crammed notifications- the "x" is so tiny and overlaps with the scroll bar. Depressing to open
oneSLOWex on 11/16/2017
Free if you have little to no recipes and want to always use Internet to see everything. Not at all worth it and definitely not worth a monthly sub. Deleting this junk.
Keeps crashing
Sparticus57 on 11/16/2017
The app keeps crash, as the title of this review makes clear. My app is up to date and so is my iOS. It caused me to lose work several times, which is frustrating. I would recommend using another product.
Very useful app
Nayefb on 11/16/2017
Great app but I am facing a lag when switching on iPhone X , if I go from one app to another it lags and I have to wait which is annoying . Hopefully will be fixed soon so I can adjust my rating .
Great app but outdated with monetization
Megazinehd on 11/15/2017
Gives you lots of features like what’s on google drive and apple notes. What’s really bazaar, is that they charge for you to sync across devices. It’s 2017!
Table Functionality?
vinylmelodies on 11/15/2017
I can’t believe it took Evernote so long to add some table editing functionality to their desktop app, which they *finally* did recently and they’re great! However, those features are lacking on mobile, and I’m pretty frustrated. I often want to add rows or edit my tables on the fly on my iPad or phone and can’t. I’d rather not even use the awesome table functionality on the desktop app as it’s actually really cumbersome when working back and forth on mobile.
Save yourself the headache
Righteous coder on 11/15/2017
After rarely using the app I was charged for a years membership of the premium service. No refund, no exceptions. Their service is terrible and the app isn't half as good as its competitors. Just void them all together and save yourself the headache.
please stop asking me to evernote upgrade from plus premium
dangshiggy on 11/15/2017
when i upload some file, evernot always ask me about evernote upgrade from plus to premium fk u
uglytruckling on 11/15/2017
if i could give it minus 5 stars i would out of sheer frustration. previous to this current UI it was great. worked beautifully. now that it’s been ‘simplified’, ‘streamlined’ it’s now very counterintuitive. example: when i want to find a note quickly, i’m sometimes on screen where i’m in the ‘find notebook’ area, thinking i’m in the ‘find note’ area. so i have to push several buttons to get back to ‘all notes’ and ‘find note’. Then when i go to find a note it’s slow and buggy. A note with an obvious title, that i’ve used many times before can’t be found unless it’s spelled exactly - won’t autofill as i’m typing, as it used to do. or there’s a long delay with the results. I use evernote for images and the wrong image will be in the list view for a specific note. the veryvery buggy. i’ve been using evernote since 2011 and have, unfortunately, become very dependent on it it. can’t imagine migrating to another app, but maybe i should. the desktop version is great and i hope they don’t start messing with it. very very frustrating and disappointing.
It used to be great- then they went and fixed it- BAD
smittyken12 on 11/14/2017
***from a premium member: 1) why would you pay $70 a year to not even be able to download a simple video to your phone or iPad? The items I save I can’t extract easily or even integrate with the Phones file app, g drive, dropbox etc, ? I always viewed it as an open architecture system… And it’s anything but 2) Even with workarounds trying to use the Workflow app on iOS, IFTTT or anything else… I can’t even extract video from the publicly shared files or links, Yet you could do that for every other site 3) In the event you have a sync issue, On iOS your account basically gets frozen because you’ll get a pop up every few seconds telling you the same exact thing and offering you no real solutions to fix it, to snooze the alert, etc etc 4) I could go on but using this verse the native notes app, or Google Notes… Etc. does no longer makes sense to me anyway I’d love to hear their value proposition versus either of those
I️ have loved Evernote
Altajoy on 11/14/2017
I have loved Evernote for over 5 years. It is my right hand in my doctoral program. But I agree with other reviewers.. the new design change and loss of features is frustrating and disappointing. Please bring back card view!!!
Can’t believe this is considered a productivity tool
PrivateReview on 11/14/2017
Despite the negative reviews on the new price structure, I ponied up and paid for Premium for a month because I need to move to a more paperless life in both business and academia. I can’t believe how slow and clunky this product is. Scanning text in is incredibly time consuming due to delays in translating scans to PDFs. Scan function frequently recognizes only part of a page, meaning multiple rescans necessary. Marking up any documents takes 3x as long due to seconds wasted every time you need to translate from one tool to another. All elements of marking up are glitchy - text box doesn’t always appear, no erase function (just delete entire edit), stylus writing is clunky, etc. There is no way I can use this as a substitute for paper copy and hand marking. This app is the equivalent of taking 15 minutes to solve a problem by text which could have been conveyed in 3 minutes of speech. Super-disappointing.
Paying for Premium/cannot open
Dis chick glb on 11/13/2017
This app started crashing on my phone shortly after I upgraded to Premium service. It will not even open on my phone now. I have deleted it and reinstalled it several times - no luck. I was hoping for an update to correct the issue - nope. Will cancel as soon as possible. Other reviews lead me to believe I am not the only one with tech and/or service issues. Look for a different app guys - or be frustrated with this one.
Love It!

Nested Tags...on iOS doesn’t exist
Rahhb Riley on 11/12/2017
I don’t know how to properly express that though things can’t be perfect, I find it very frustrating nested tags exist on web and desktop (and maybe on Android?) but not iOS. It’s the foundation of my use of Evernote. Tags, I believe, are part of the cornerstone of Evernote’s unique value proposition. I use best practices for naming structures, etc. and use standardized unique tags. I’m aware of saved searches, and I’ve used them, but I shouldn’t need to use them for viewing simple tag categories and hierarchy. Not being able to see the nested tag hierarchy of how Evernote has enabled me to structure my tags on my on-the-go go-to device, when I’m away from my workhorse machine slows me down, and is counter productive. I just don’t use this on mobile hardly at all now, leading me to actually stop using it altogether and work around other ways. Pay for multiple device? Don’t need too! Mobile app is worthless for me now. Without hyperbole, this is THE factor keeping me from subscribing to Plus or Premium. The moment I see this (I know, 3 years +/- coming), Evernote has a paying customer. I know I’m not the only one. **Still holding my breath**
If you need help, forget it
Lcat443 on 11/12/2017
I must have tried to contact the 5 or 6 times. You can’t just try the more expensive options and then go back to basic. You have to cancel, and lose all the info you’ve stored there. What a scam.
From the best to the worst. Not recommended.
Revtrin on 11/11/2017
This went from being the best most valued app I use every day to the absolute worst. Their latest blunder...removal of presentation mode. I was a premium member and I paid for that feature which they eliminated without warning. I’m moving my notes to another app and canceling my premium membership. Epic fail Evernote.
They Over Bill $ and Don’t Respond!
@BigFella on 11/11/2017
I have used Evernote for a long time. The last time I upgraded to Premium, it was in response to their discount offer of $42 annual. Well, they charged the $42 and $69.99. I have sent them numerous emails and they have yet to reply 1 week later. I would agree with other reviews that their Customer Service is pathetic and wonder if they really have a C/S dept at all.
Long-Time Users, Join the Mass Exodus
SunshineOnMyToes on 11/10/2017
So, I have loved Evernote. Really. I have. Evernote presented me with a simple way to introduce some degree of sanity into a life full of chaos. I fell in love with sharing capabilities, especially being able to create public links, being able to email anything straight into my notebooks, tags,... the whole system. Now, the bugs, the extraordinarily painful time to load... and yes, the customer service that you need to be there when you need it to be there... the service you don’t realize you will have to wait an eternity for if you pay just $3.99/month for the mere Plus subscription... (more accurately, 7-8 days, which is an eternity when you have a deadline you need Evernote to work properly for in... 2 days)... not to mention, the features you fall in love with keep becoming unavailable unless you pay MORE... I hate change. I get attached easily & I have some freakish crazy-a**ed-devotion-genetic defect. I’ve googled to explore other options for the past few months. Couldn’t do it, but now that Im paying $7.99/month, I want the freaking service I’m paying for to work and not spend 30% of the time Im using the app on my ipad trying to recover from crashes (& yes, I check for updates everytime I have a glitch... they’re seldom available). If you can relate to this at all, just bite the bullet. Go back and give OneNote a try. Take all you’ve learned from Evernote, then for simplicity, do a Google search to figure out how to do the same in OneNote. Then do it. Really. Force yourself to set a time limit and give it a try for that long... moving over just the notes youll need during that time, and to create new ones. Three days should do the trick if you're an avid user. Every function I swore I couldnt live without in Evernote is better, easier, faster, in OneNote. As much as I have felt I needed the services provided through Evernote, I swore I didnt mind the tremendous ongoing fee. Well.... now with a side-by-side comparison, I’d pay more for OneNote. Yet, no need. It’s free.
Frustrating Ongoing Crashes
Amio7 on 11/10/2017
I’ve been a premium account holder for years, but will not renew. I’ll have to move to Outlook Notes because of the constant crashing issue, syncing issue and lack of support. Skip this app and you’ll avoid frustration.
Satanzangl on 11/9/2017
Update - app does not always save articles when saving via share sheet button. Very annoying Crashes on iOS 8 - iPad mini retina. Doesn't work at all
Inside text tags
Aitfc on 11/9/2017
I believe evernote is one of the best way to organise ideas and collect thoughts. there is something that will add a value to your application . I suggest to give ability to create tags inside the textnote , which helps a lot in preparing sessions and write books. thanks for your continues improvement .
Ive used Evernote for 6 years but 1/5 stars
Schnark Buckerbird on 11/9/2017
This app is often unable to sync across devices. Whether it be automatic syncs or manual, this app simply refuses to update my documents on other accounts. This app freezes like crazy! Writing this review on the app store is a way more effective way to document anything than this app. Evernote has gone downhill. Writing lists and notes in evernote is now a chore. It's too slow to work often times From incompetent merging problems where my documents would be duplicated 10 times simply because two devices have the same document that is not being changed at the same time. It's just a shame that I took all of my notes on a horrible service like Nevernote. Edit: they have still not fixed the problem where notes don't sync or duplicate. Ditch evernote. Edit 2: A year later and the app has actually gotten WORSE. Shame on you Evernote
No alphabet on right side
VivAre22 on 11/8/2017
There’s no alphabet tab, so you have to scroll through hundreds of notes to get to the one you are looking for.
Update killed this app!
Fenwal on 11/8/2017
I use this app often or at least I use to anyway. The latest update makes the app pretty much unusable. Please fix! Thought it was my device, but on all 3 of my devices, same results. Unable to sync, slow sluggish typing. I'll have 5 words typed before one appears.
STILL CRASHES ON IPHONE 7+ IOS 11.1 makes it worse.
Herr ArtigMeister on 11/8/2017
RECENT UPDATE 10/28 STILL CRASHES ON THE IPHONE 7+on ios 10.3.3. I upgraded to IOS 11.1 and now its crashes are more consistent. Many updates since the problem began on other ios devices; now the ONLY IOS DEVICE IT HAS A PROBLEM WITH IS IPHONE 7+. I depend on this as do many other users for work if this continues to be a problem I will have to migrate my entire database and my paid membership to another application. So please make this work. While this used to be an excellent app and I rely upon - daily - as I much storage on the iCloud and exported down to my computers. EVERNOTE developers... PLEASE FIX THIS NOW ! If need be you can contact me and I can give you more technical data as I am current Apple developer.
Please look to Bear
Eddie Corbo on 11/8/2017
Bear is beautiful. I’ve been an Evernote lover for a while but lately it’s become bloated and focused on entering the business team collaboration market and competing against Slack. Instead, they should have just created a dedicated team collaboration product instead of stuffing every new feature it could into Evernote. Now Evernote is ugly and unenjoyable for creating notes. Bear on the other hand is doing it beautifully. I want to stay loyal to Evernote, I’ve been with them since day one. Just please listen to your customers!
Aymles on 11/6/2017
Worst F*****G app EVER. I am a songwriter and it delete all the song I was working on when I got my new phone. I am in tears because I had so many songs I was working on. ALL GONE!!! Your choice if you are planning on getting a new phone
Crashes with ipad 3, latest iOS
Howdidumissthis on 11/6/2017
Crashed earlier when recording audio 1/2 way through a meeting Also, it is missing an extremely important differentiating feature on this iPad version, that is, to view by tag hierarchy. This is one of the only reasons to use Evernote vs. other solutions. That and cross-platform cloud function. However, the pricing model on the latter is also questionable; pricing should really just assume ubiquitousness (Android, iOS, PC, Mac, Linux, etc.) since it is an obvious winning value prop. Missing these two features is an obvious failure of vision.
imscottb on 11/5/2017
Best app ever
Good app but raising subscription that much?
OALHBF on 11/5/2017

Can't open app
basillionaire on 11/1/2017
Since the new update I haven't been able to open the app. I tried deleting it and reinstalling it on my iPhone 7 and it still won't open. It's really irritating because I have a lot of stuff saved on there. Doesn't even deserve 1 star
Annotation of pdf
bryannass on 11/1/2017
Great app use it everyday. Annotating pdfs hasn’t worked in the last few months for me it just crashes.
EN isn’t listening to its paid customers
Randen Montalvo on 11/1/2017
I love EN but am noticing a shift towards not paying attention to their users...for instance 1) The whole community has complained about Apple Pencil support annotating is so behind other apps and crude in the EN implementation that its almost a feature that should be removed due to how bad it is. Want to write with the Apple Pencil using EN think again it creates straight lines every time you write a sentence using a T or and it doesnt have continuous page support so unless your typing that book forget about lined rules pencils being beautiful organized using EN ...think again. 2) Apple Watch support again the community begs them to expand the app ....want to take a audio recording note...think again you can take it but have your laptop near you to listen to that very note you have taken on the Apple Watch....got a LTE Apple Watch forget about accessing your notes without your phone on your watch the shortcuts nor reminders show except for what extremely limited text based notes you type of dictate but again the audio notes...CANNOT BE REPLAYED ON THE WATCH?? WTH? 3) EN Widgets...on the ipad wouldn’t it be nice to take a quick note in a widget? Think again it simply launches the app to which you save no time. Im confused at why EN doesnt think ahead with their implementations using their blog. Make recording anything EASIER!!! Not just short cut widgets....responsive widgets are what we want! EN isn’t listening to its users, much like the dead product that was Penultimate ..EN needs to serious get engaged or loose paying customers.
iPad keyboard not responsive with this app!
ramlin35 on 10/31/2017
keyboard not responsive when using evernote on iPad. My evernote works fine on my desktop and android phone and iPhone. However, I noticed that my keyboard isn't very responsive when using evernote on my iPad. I was getting ready to trash my old iPad because I was so frustrated that I wasn't able to type on Evernote. I noticed that my keyboard is responsive when I use it for everything but evernote. Is there a workaround this? I reached out to Evernote, they said they weren't aware of this issue. Can you help with this?
Crap App
Captain Mike II on 10/31/2017
Can’t reactivate my account! The app just runs you in a sign in loop that doesn’t let you do ANYTHING!!! Customer service is nonexistent so no help there. I had to give it one star but it deserves much less than that!!!
Your disorganized digital brain
sjebnet on 10/31/2017
Evernote sells itself as a repository for all the information you’ve got rolling around in your head. In GTD fashion, offloading all that info into a trusted system freeing up headspace. The breakdown happens when you need to recall that info. The search function is atrocious. “Where was that quote about...” Good luck. If it finds it at all, random words — or just space between the lines — in the resulting note will be highlighted. If it’s a lengthy passage with the word mentioned more than once, forget it. I only use Evernote on my phone, and the UI update they pushed out about a year ago made the app more of a capture tool than a usable interface. The app is so minimalist you almost have to have access to a computer or larger screen to make any sense at all of what you have stored in it. I’ve invested a lot in migrating my stuff onto the platform, but I probably won’t renew my subscription.
Update after update the app keeps getting worse
Roman Menyhart on 10/31/2017
After the major overhaul in February which nearly killed Evernote for me, the latest adds only more gimmicks and animations. Slow, cumbersome, usability wise a disaster. Evernote, you know we rely on you right? But how far will you push this? One day even the most invested daily user won’t take this and switch.
Saved searches and shortcuts not intuitive
Dr. Deacon on 10/30/2017
Like Evernote very much but the mobile usability leaves a lot to be desired. For example, to create a saved search and save it as a shortcut, one must: Go to search page Create search using command syntax Click on search icon with plus sign Name the search Back up to search icon Choose search just created and run it Click ... Add to shortcuts Seems like some usability research needed
