Evernote makes blogging research easy

2017-10-13

Pros

Easy to use out of the box and easy to show others how to use.

Cons

At first, we had some issues with Evernote crashing on us. And setting up company account was a bit tricky compared to individual users

As a student, it has helped keep me organized.

2018-06-15

Pros

You can auto-sync between devices to find anything you need. It gives you the ability to dictate notes to transcribe into Evernote, which I found very helpful during lectures so that I did not have to hand write notes.

Cons

It would be nice if there was an option to add text boxes.

Fantastic Note Taking Software Solution

2018-12-05

Evernote ends up functioning like a highly usable planner and journal, eliminating the need for flipping through legal pads, sticky notes, etc. I could not function at the same level without it and it works much better for me than many other large cloud based systems like Google Docs, Microsoft, etc.

Pros

As a highly scatterbrained individual who thrives off of structure Evernote checks off multiple boxes for me.

Cons

I don't have any complaints about using Evernote, it works perfectly for my needs.

A good collaboration software for groups of people who are already using Evernote

2018-04-18

Productivity, organization, project management

Pros

For complete newbies to the Evernote system, the utility of Evernote Business may be tough to "get" as it probably requires a shift in your productivity flow to get the most out of it. If you're willing to make that shift, however, Evernote Business rewards you with a best-in-class note taking system that goes from single-player to multi-player with collaborative note editing and organization. For teams made up of multiple people already using Evernote throughout their life, Evernote Business is a slam dunk.

Cons

Just don't go into it thinking it'll replace Dropbox/Box and you'll be fine.

Best way to keep all your notes and ideas in one place

2017-07-13

Pros

I love how you can organize and categorize everything. Search works really well. The mobile app is perfect and I use it all the time! Worth every penny!

Cons

The thing I like least about this is that when you make a check box list, it doesn't strikethrough and/or change color to give you that added visual cue that the thing is done.

Works great, sometimes glitchy

2018-02-05

Pros

This syncs up on multiple devices (amount depends on which membership you have....free has worked fine for me) It has a check box feature which is really gratifying to check off when done with a task You can input different kinds of data from pics to text so it doesnt limit you with your note taking

Cons

When the versions clash, it isn't obvious how to pick just one. Sometimes I delete the most recent note and I have to salvage it.

Organized product info

2018-11-13

Pros

One of my favorite uses for Evernote is saving product info like manuals or the warranty or a picture of the box so I can throw it away but reference it if needed.

Cons

I try to share Evernote with my husband and someone from work and it seemed a little complicated to share info within a particular category rather than creating a new shared space that almost duplicates that category.

Love this for organizing my thoughts

2018-12-02

Pros

There are great options for font format, check boxes, lists, etc

Cons

- I wish I could make sub-notebooks for when I have a lot of notes in a notebook. I know I can just make it another Notebook, but then I find I have more Notebooks than I'd like. - When I save something to Evernote from the internet, it becomes it's own note. I wish there was a way to insert it into an existing note - either from the start, or when from the app when I'm reorganizing.

Best collaboration tool for small teams

2018-01-29

Note taking, sharing documents, capturing ideas etc

Pros

Similarly Evernote can be linked with other popular tools like dropbox, box, basecamp etc Various templates like calendar, expense tracker , phone log etc come with Evernote.

Cons

Evernote is not robust enough to cater to big teams and big companies. Larger companies and bigger companies have more options in the market place.

Not all that straightforward

2018-03-08

Nil

Pros

The reviews were all really positive so I went into this software experience with quite a positive outlook however unfortunately I found it really counter intuitive and difficult to use. Not much to say on the positive side.

Cons

Sadly it didn't tick the boxes for me!

Not sure how we coped without it!

2017-10-03

Evernote makes organising your day-to-day incredibly easy, for me and my team it's a brilliant way to share to-do lists and collaborate on notes.

Pros

There's a wealth of tools available on the platform, and the one tool I use almost daily is the check box feature.

Cons

The app for Mac is pretty dreadful to use, I think they need to spend some time making it feel native to macOS. Similarly, the mobile app has less features and often takes a while to sync notes across, especially if they contain files.

Evernote Review

2018-10-01

Evernote is awesome. Love the layout, ease of use, and ability to create a paperless office environment. I love that our teams are able to easily share notes on certain clients and projects. I’ll always recommend this people that are looking for tools to streamline & organize notes, files, forms, etc.

Pros

We use a few other tools such as Box, Google Docs & Asana, but we always go back to Evernote for sharing notes, agendas and client intake forms, because it seems to be so much easier to use.

Cons

I have at times, struggled to find certain notes that have been shared with me. I have to remember that the note is contained within work chats, then search back to find the relevant note. Not a huge issue though.

Top of the line

2018-06-15

Ability to retrieve older documents with ease. I can also, whether mid-conversation or during a meeting or presentation, quickly retrieve information that I've forgotten or to elaborate on someone else's ideas.

Pros

Evernote is also able to easily collaborate with all the other storage software(Dropbox, Drive, Box, OneDrive, Acrobat, etc.) and the syncing is better than any other software I've used to date.

Cons

Now, the "downside". Using this program since 2013 should tell you, that any downsides EN does have, are vastly overshadowed by it's shine. Shifting your lifelong organizational habits from a file/ folder based system to En's "note/ notebook" system overwhelms some people, I'm sure. I struggled with this, myself! Don't let it, though! If you remember, I already applauded the awesome search capabilities of EN. When I use search, and don't dig, or go "searching" manually through my folders, my task management becomes much more efficient. Organizing EN is definitely a "Con" for me, though. I really haven't done it. I store and search. EN would definitely become even more efficient for me, if I spent some time cleaning it up. Another thorn for me, is getting the info. OUT of EN, if I'm not sharing it to another integrated application(like dropbox). EN makes it's own document extension. When you download, or try to email something with your default email client (EN has it's own email client that looks like chat, visually), the item you are sending has a .enex extension (ex. "doc.enex") NO programs can open this file extension. So, converting these EN , .enex files, to Microsoft Word (.doc) or Adobe portable document format (.pdf) wastes time and inconveniences the user. Lastly, there is the cost. EN is one of the more expensive options for information storage, but there is a free version available. You only need to subscribe when increased storage space is needed.

A consolidated repository for everything important

2018-07-03

The tool is extremely feature rich. There are utilities that I am yet to explore but the fact that Evernote is loaded with features makes it a perfect tool for both professional and personal uses.

Pros

It is one of those reminder boxes, note-making books and a repository all at once where you can "dump" all of your important things - Be it notes, links, photos, articles, audios, important files and just about everything.

Cons

Evernote runs on Basic (which is free) model and a Premium model. The free version inevitably comes with its limitations like - Monthly upload limit is extremely less especially considering the fact that, it has so many features to save your data. Where it provides so many features, it sets itself back with the space limitation which is minimal. The paid version (Premium), however is pretty cheap, but feasible only if you really are a heavy note-making user.

Evernote just got classier

2019-01-15

Pros

It seems to do everything Evernote does, just a little bit prettier.

Cons

Unfortunately they copied the same way Evernote creates new notes where you have to write an extra click to title it (which of course you should title it because that's how you can find it/see it), defaulting to writing your note instead of starting with a title.
