I love Evernote. In fact, after years of using this wonderful app, I became a Premium user. However, the inability to customize some of the keyboard shortcuts set by Evernote's team is inconsiderate and counterproductive.

Evernote is the saddest piece of software I haven't thrown in the trash. Riddled with heinous bugs, update after update, crashes, occasional data loss... all wrapped in a weird non-standard UI where even simple things like popup menus more...

Best app for synchronization notes, but little annoying confirmation email on my phone - 3 times this year!

I think Evernote is the most hyped and overrated app of current time.
The interface does not help in decluttering your data or notes.
The worst thing is, everything is 'online'. Whilst I have a local copy of my Evernote notebooks, the Evernote Safari plugin does not talk with the local copy but only with the online account. That way, the free 60 MB data allowance per month will be gone very fast. Also, the Safari plugin needs to be logged in like a website, so if you've deleted your history you have to log in again: this could be avoided by using the local copy.

The good thing about Evernote: I like their logo, I like elephants!

So let's get this straight, you want to have the safari plugin talk to your local copy! Is this because you have no internet connection? Evidently not since you seem to be on Safari looking at a webpage. Oh, I see. You want to save locally because you think EN should just provide you with a premium unlimited service for free. 60 MBs is already pretty generous. But wanting everything for free is perhaps your problem and not a problem with EN. Presumably EN is running a business and they would like to make some money from users who save tons of data. Seems pretty reasonable. Finally, deleting your history will not delete your login from Safari. Deleting your cookies might do it however.

The "copy note link" is no longer a local link, but a link to the website. Annoying. Local links were great. Another retrograde step (unless it's just my copy acting up?)

No, it's not me, it's a retrograde change in this crap software. Someone, somewhere, please make a decent alternative to this lumbering behemoth

You can always try Microsoft OneNote. Seems to be getting good reviews.

Evernote is now on my shit list.

I refuse to use or endorse apps that install stealthware crap without asking me during an upgrade. If I wanted to change my browser search to Bing, I would have done so. Installing malware to hijack my search is not cool. MacOS users would not put up with this behavior. Why do they allow such crap in their Windows product.

Its banned for life. I wish there was a Yelp for crappy software.

Latest version 5.5.1 seems to take forever to launch!

OK, it has no competition across the features, admitted, but it's a pig-ugly, un-Mac-like application. Why the black on the left? Why no customisable themes or backgrounds? Double-clicking on a word doesn't select text properly. I'd just shout for joy if this thing had an overhaul that made it more aesthetically pleasing to use.

Agreed... the new Onenote is looking better all the time, may finally dive into it.

Usability and aesthetics would both be nice, certainly. But If I had to choose, I'd take function over form any time. I have had no trouble with double-clicking or any other functional issue so far. My only complaint is that it takes forever to launch compared to older versions. I can't quite figure that one out.

Every time I see a review of Evernote, I click on the icon in my menu bar and try again. Failure! Question: Am I supposed to be able to type notes in Evernote by using my keyboard? I can't. Should I be able to?

I'm looking for an app that I can install in my menu bar that will enable me to both type notes AND paste things that I have copied. In my search for such an app, I've downloaded at least half-a-dozen apps, but none of them will do both jobs. Well, I take that back. I can do that with STICKIES or TextEdit, but they're too slow for me.

If plain text is all you need, I would strongly recommend you give nvALT a shot. Powerful, fast and future-proof.

I haven't tried Evernote. I've been using TextEdit to keep persistent notes open on my Mac, but I can't yet access them from my iPhone. So then I used the Notes app, but you can't paste images in it. So I decided to try OneNote when it came out, since it's free, and it's not bad at all.

I reverted to version 3! In newer versons, one can no longer create local notebooks, which are never synchronized. Also the integration with keychain is very bad. Although the idea is very goog, the implementation needs much improvement. Customer service is not able to deal with complaints.

In some of the screenshots provided above the Evernote interface appears to have a light blue-coloured sidebar and a sandy-coloured main pane. Mine doesn't look like that. Wish it did.
