One of the best notes apps I used

Verified Reviewer  14th of September

Amr Selim, Founder & Director of HumanTalents, Technology Consultant, Customer Success Expert, Keynote Speaker and a Soccer man!
I sometimes have a short memory. Ever wondered "where did I read that before? " or "what was that guy's name again?" that was me all the time, but thanks to Evernote and it's versatility + multi device support I now remember those things (sort of) I would not want to live without it, the only issue is that it is a bit more expensive than its competitors. (the premium version) It used to be 45 USD. Annually, but they have recently increased the pricing.

Pros: Easy to use, supports and synchronizes to multiple devices and operating systems, nice features and note options, easy to import, export and share notes, can be nicely automated using IFTTT and Zapier, and I particularly like the Chrome clipper and the ability to tag notes.

Cons: A bit pricey, note formatting is not consistent and needs improvement.

Director Process Development (Biotechnology company, 1001-5000 employees)
I love the easy storage and retrieval. I need to become more proficient tho... I need to organize my file structure better but the capability is there.

Pros: ease of use, syncs well and integrates well with other apps.

Cons: not many, hope it doesn't become too complicated as many 'improvements' do.

Great app - hands down one of the best note-takers out there

Verified Reviewer  6th of September

Alec Pinkham, Product Marketing Manager at AppNeta
I've worked with many different options for note-taking and idea saving. Evernote is still my favorite. With a simple hierarchy that's easy to understand (Notebooks then Notes) it's powerful and allows for extra hierarchy (Parent/child notebooks). It offers everything you need to search (e.g., tagging) as well as providing a clean rich-text interface for notes. I've used OneNote most extensively as a competitor and was quite happy with it for a long time, but the interface is a little clunkier and I found the sharing to be a few additional steps. I went back to Evernote when I started my latest position (no longer at a Microsoft house).

Pros: + Simple, clean note-taking interface + Search-ability and tagging + Device support and usability on mobile + Storage

Cons: - Finite hierarchy - I often find I'm one level short of what I want

Try OneNote as well, everyone's different. If you're not a heavy Microsoft user (for work) then Evernote will be an easy choice. If you are you'll have to weigh the pros of staying in the Microsoft environment.

Great Note Organizer for Class

Verified Reviewer  31st of August

Content Marketing Manager (Information Technology and Services company, 11-50 employees)
I used Evernote mostly for classes and sharing notes/tasks with fellow students. I used mostly the online version and one year I bought one of the Moleskin notebooks (super fancy/expensive, but worth it)!

Pros: It was always easy to search and find any information I was searching for - even months or years afterward.

Cons: Like any organizing app, you need to have your own system of how you collect and organize your information. Mine evolved over time, so earlier notes and comments were hard to reorganize/find.

It's definitely worth it if you put the effort into it. I found that sometimes I would forget my Evernote materials for class, so I'd have to rewrite my notes, but that just helped me to study.

A useful app

Verified Reviewer  30th of August

emily josh, Account Executive at Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company
I never found it, never even heard about it. It was a built-in application in my cell phone. I was willing to uninstall the application but thought it would be worth a try. I no longer need to have a notebook with me. Most importantly it helps me stay organize, I wake up every morning and check my cell phone I assign myself tasks at night to do the next day. Including my diet routine and exercises. Important information like meetings, occasions important events to attend all are saved in my app. The best help I got from the app was I was able to store recipes which I would always forget. Evernote is indeed a helpful tool.

Pros: Evernote taught me to be more organized. the app also works in offline mode which is quite feasible for me. the app doesn't take to much memory space.

Cons: Evernote is difficult to understand and navigate.

A useful app which will keep you organised

Keeps me organized

Verified Reviewer  29th of August

Charmaine Shettlesworth, Independent Business Owner(IBO) at Davcar Business Solutions Inc
Evernote puts things into perspective for me. I have the opportunity of keeping all my files all in one place. I used to be so disorganized. It was driving me insane.

Pros: Evernote is my best friend. I am more organized. It would seem I have great organizational skills. Thats not me. Its evernote

Cons: When using an app for the first time, the feeling can be overwhelming. Getting used to the capabilities , took a little time.

Evernote, a great way to work!

Verified Reviewer  29th of August

René Antenbrink, Founder at Atforce
Evernote does what it promises. It helps you to create notes in an easy way. And of course a little more. Available for Windows and Mac OSx, Evernote integrates with Outlook (both for Windows and Mac), which is even a step beyond Microsoft Evernote that doesn't integrate with Outlook for MAc.

Pros: Many features Simply to use Integration with MS Outlook

Cons: Didn't find one. Just ok.

Great personal note-taking tool. Nothing more, nothing less.

Verified Reviewer  29th of August

Praval Singh, Product / Marketing Guy at Zoho.com
I've been using Evernote for over 4 years now, and I like how I can leave my personal notes / recipes / travel plans / etc. on it and forget about it. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit my workspace. The collaboration feature doesn't seem to be as good as an office suite (I shouldn't even be expecting that though!) The mobile app is too heavy and cluttered.

Pros: Great Mac App, Works Offline, syncs easily

Cons: - Poor mobile app, the desktop app could be lighter, a bit expensive for a personal note-taking app

If you're comparing it with Microsoft's OneNote, this is no doubt a better app for personal note-taking. But there are also a bunch of good note-taking apps in the market! If you're considering this for business - I would not recommend it.

I love that you can save any type of file in Evernote. I have the clip in my browser, my iPad and my iPhone, It syncs it self pretty fast. Let you organize all your docs in notebooks so I used for pretty much for everything!

Pros: Saves any type and size of file ( not the free version) Syncs fast

Cons: You can only have two devices with the free account
