Create searchable notes and access them anywhere.

Overview

Evernote allows you to easily capture information in any environment using whatever device or platform you find most convenient, and makes this information accessible and searchable at anytime, from anywhere.

  • Create notes containing text and audio
  • Find printed and handwritten text within images
  • Clip application and web content directly into Evernote
  • Synchronize with the Evernote Service and access all notes, even ones taken using other clients

Note: while Evernote is listed as free, there are subscription pricing plans that can be viewed here.

What's new in Evernote

Version 7.14:
  • Sometimes the app would get stuck loading a note (usually a web clip or shared note) until finally it gave up and assumed you were offline. But now your notes should load fast enough to make you smile.
  • If you updated to macOS Catalina then tried to highlight text inside a PDF, it would look like there was nothing selected. You could say it was a big fail, but on the bright side, we fixed it.

Doesn't work with Safari 13. Really, they didn't know this was coming for a year? This is the only one of my apps that wasn't updated. The only possible reason is lack of interest on the dev's part, or lack of concern for users. Who prefers DevonThink? Who prefers Apple Notes? Does anyone prefer OneNote? Any other recommendations for switching?

I am confused by the large volume of negative reviews as I have used Evernote for several years now. The apps on my iPhone, Google Pixel and iMac are always reliable and the integration with my browsers is solid.

Evernote is not the only solution for cloud based note taking and the only reason that I keep paying for Evernote subscription is their web clip. And with Safari 13 upgrade their only advantage is gone. Apple had announced the upcoming change of Safari extension API since last year and those smart brains at Evernote had 16 months to implement it, but they just failed to do so before Safari 13 lands. From the staff responses on their forum I'd suspect that they just put it on the shelf until recently. And I'm not going to support such a insouciant company any longer.

Be cautious. Upgrading to this version broke Evernote bringing up a nonsensical dialog box. I had to completely pull EVERYTHING off the computer and start over. Might be wise to save the older version aside in case you experience the same difficulty. This is a rarity, but it was very inconvenient.

They don't have a version that runs on 10.10 any more. The current release supports 10.11 and above. Using the 6.1 release listed here (which auto upgrades to 6.2) is OK. I'm still looking for something that keeps notes local or in my cloud storage rather than on a company server. Plus it costs $72/year just to store stuff there. This is NOT it.

It works well as it always has for the many years I've relied on it... zero crashes, freezes, or drama of any kind. It is reliable, convenient, well documented, supported across a vast ecosystem of 3rd-party apps that play well together and compliment each other. Syncing is nearly instantaneous and I have yet to loose a byte of data. I simply can't replicate the issues a few continue to report. 10.13.3 on late 2014 iMac 5K 4GHz i7 w/32 GB, 1TB SSD + 12TB external via TB2. Similar great performance with my 2017 MBP.

I used to love Evernote. Now I loathe it. The Mac app has all kinds of weird bugs that irritate the heck out of me, and the WebClipper is often dog-slow. It's not pleasant to use at all. Besides that, this type of apps often keeps your data in a roach motel, and Evernote is not an exception here. And don't even get me started on how they have Import/Export feature under the File menu. There is no guarantee they will always work. Evernote's Export feature choked on me many times when I tried to export 2,000+ entries in it. The usual "open a support ticket" routine ensues, and you are bound to waste the next few days waiting in line. I freed myself of all of that by establishing my workflow outside Evernote: Markdown text files and folders. I just use whatever the best tool available at the moment to edit my data in open format. I no longer need to spend time tinkering and worrying about what the future might hold for Evernote. I don't even need to worry about figuring out a way to import my data into another roach motel bucket app. These apps all come and go, so you are better off keeping all your data in open format as much as possible. You might think that the file and folder method is clumsy, but I haven't missed Evernote at all. I can keep tags inside a text file or in file names, and Spotlight can pick them up. For OCR, I just use Scanner Pro on my iPhone since that's where I capture images anyway. For handwriting OCR, I just use Apple Notes, but it's rare that I absolutely need it. Sure, my method isn't elegant, and it lacks some conveniences Evernote affords. But it works everywhere where the OS has a basic search function, and I can use any apps I like to work with my data. Rock-solid predictability and reliability is more important than some non-essential conveniences Evernote might provide.

Great for keeping notes whether it's for personal things or work-related. Being able to customize notes makes it that more fun to jot things down on the go. There were a few glitches recently but after they had their last update it seemed to work a lot better than it had been. Would recommend Evernote if taking notes is part of your daily routine.

I've been a Premium user for three years now. During that time, I tried other solutions, but I kept coming back to Evernote because it is uniquely useful. Competitor tools treat Evernote as a note-taking tool and try to beat it at that. The problem with such comparison is that Evernote has long time evolved away from being just a note-taking tool. It has become a knowledge sharing ecosystem, a type of universal file system where you can mix multiple media types and store them in a single entry. A new entry can record audio, scan in pictures, and record formatted text all at the same time in one place. You can organize all related information for various scenarios (meetings, classes, etc.) in one entry, and it becomes available on all of my devices. Evernote's web clipper is incredibly useful. I have not found any other alternatives that are as robust and feature-rich as Evernote's clipper. I use it all the time to create a personal archive of various topics. It is also available everywhere; switch to another device, install a fresh copy of Evernote, and you have your entire digital world synced for you in a matter of seconds, and ready for you to start working. It's incredibly useful. Context matters, too. Sure, you can sync a pile of files via iCloud or Dropbox, but raw data without the context is just, well … raw data. It is the context that turns data into knowledge, and Evernote helps me establish a web of context among the data I collect in it. It is why I once tried to manage everything in a pile of plain text files and miserably failed. And so many apps and services can connect to Evernote's APIs, so it can act as a hub of every knowledge I need to maintain. Strongly recommended.

I used to stick with Evernote but after constant inconveniences I had to get rid of it, removed all my data from it etc. I think this could be a great application if the devs heard the people. When I encounter bugs, or see my data recorded not the way I intended, I just start feeling insecure about keeping all of it in this one application. Sorry folks

There is a lot of competition out there... and Evernote continues to restrict the free version ever more(now sync is down to two machines only) to make it basically useless beyond a demo or for a singe/two machine user with limited needs.. Whether the monthly fee is worth its value depends on individual preferences. I don't have extensive note taking/clipping needs, but liked the flexibility of Evernote and use multiple devices (2 computers (home/office), iPad and Blackberry). Not that the monthly fee is very much, but then there are many other applications/services that also shift to a subscription based model, so the total monthly be can be quite substantive and I need to prioritize. So I now will be have to look elsewhere as my limited needs don't justify the fee (and I will keep on using multiple devices). Farewell Evernote.

Experienced different apps creating notes, but Evernote seems to be the best one. Actually it's very simple to use. All my family use this app when it comes to sharing the shopping lists.

One of the most moronic horrible User Experience applications out there. One of the many applications out there that I hate most. First, it never shows up as "installed" in the app store even though I installed it 3 times already via the App Store. Updates never show up under updates in the Ap Store. Even when I force the re-download via the App Store the update which is released days and days ago never shows up as an update in the App Store. This has to be the idiot developers who release this piece of junk. Even if I download a newer version manually via Macupdate, let's say "6.1" and I have a 6.0.6 in the Applications folder, it reports that I have a "NEWER!" application already in the folder. Versioning, releases, design, updates, UX, all around total piece of junk. Companies like this should go out of business and do it fast.

Is this app malware? Hard to say for sure, but something is seriously janky with this program. Since I installed it my monthly internet usage went up, and for me that's a problem (my ISP caps my monthly usage and if I go over it costs me big time). iStat indicated that something on my MBP was sucking down 70kb/sec (average) and uploading 20kb/sec, even with no apps running. I thought for sure I'd been infected by some malware/virus. Turns out it's Evernote. What gives with that?

I have upgraded to v6.0.1 without any issues from v5.7.2 (I think that was the last v5 version I had installed) and though I maynot love the look, I haven't had any of the problems people have been noting here and on the Mac AppStore regarding the new version. It has worked well for me and this is from an Evernote user since August 2008 and a Premium user since February 2011. I use Evernote across 4 different IOS devices and 4 different user accounts on a server setup Mac mini. I can't say Evernote isn't without it's issues and that I've not had any in the years of use; but this one version hasn't had any of the issues people have brought up (for me). I will comment to some users who complain, specifically about table support, Evernote really isn't a table power-house app. If you need the functionality of such an app, get one, use is and when you've whipped up the table you want, paste it into Evernote. You'll likely have a better experience. I find Evernote a great app for what it does, holding notes, PDF articles, drawings, etc., for use across my family and all our Mac accounts and IOS devices. Is it the best for everything, no; but it is the best (for us) for what it does.

Changing the GUI for change's sake. Wow, the title text now huge and of course non-configurable. Ironically, now that Yosemite supports Dark Mode, they remove all of the dark backgrounds in the app so it now stands out like a sore thumb when running it. Just shake my head, thumbs down on this "update".

Another new version. A v 6 iteration of a program. And still a poor set of table features, something that allows the user to organize data better. You cannot select rows. You cannot select column. You cannot set defaults. There is very little user control over data in tables. I do like the cross platform and cross device syncing ability which is why I started using Evernote. You would think that by version 6 of a product that control over user data would be more sophisticated. And I still experience delays and slowdowns while typing a note. I have an incredible fast iMac (3.5 GHz i7, 24 GB RAM, 3T Fusion Drive) and yet I will type a character and there will often be a pause before it displays on the screen. I press return/enter and another pause. I will be typing and it stops and the dreaded Mac spinning beachball displays. I check and there is no sync operation occurring so it has to be an internal coding issue. No other program I run has delays, pauses or spinning beachballs. Please Evernote Corporation, hold off on bloating the program with extra features and spend some time improving the performance and feature capabilities which are already available.

I've been a premium Evernote subscriber for going on three years. But no more. Every new update seems to bring some ridiculous bloatware features that are obviously aimed at trying to please their investors. I want a fast, easy, note application that syncs across my devices. I don't want a marketplace to buy shirts or bags. I don't want connections to LinkedIn. I don't want crap added to the sidebar without asking me. I don't want a chat button in the toolbar which can't be removed. A once great tool which seems to be losing its focus and therefore its appeal.

Evernote is getting worse. The app has become more intrusive in its grabbing more than it needs to do its job. It has taken keyboard shortcuts I used and co-opted them, destroying my productivity, and making be downgrade so I have those shortcuts back. I decided not to renew my yearly account because clearly this app is no longer about meeting user needs, and more about meeting the bottom line. I can second the lackluster support that doesn’t offer any sympathy nor solutions to disable co-opted keyboard shortcuts.

Watch out for 5.6. I installed it, and I found that the column headers for notes in note list view were rearrange, resized, and not necessarily resizable! I also found that the contents some of my notes appeared to be reformatted. Keep a backup, because 5.6 completely changes the note format.

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!

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.

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.

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. For instance, I don't need Evernote's "note sharing" shortcut 'CMD-FORWARD SLASH'. I use that specific shortcut to show and hide my clipboard manager. I emailed Evernote's support about the problem, and was surprised to receive a laconic response stating that some keyboard shortcuts cannot be edited. Evernote staff, please allow your users the freedom of choice to set their own keyboard shortcuts.

This is the third time this year when I do an Evernote update for my iPad through my iPad that a porn file has suddenly appeared. It's like it's imbedded in the update file. So then of course it syncs with all my devices and it's on everything. The first time it happened Evernote tried to blame it on me, said it must be some lack of security or miss doing on my end. I can assure you, that is NOT the case. Has anyone else had this same experience?

update from 5.2 to 5.4 seems to have gone well (skipped 5.3 out of concerns). impressed with the new presentation mode!

At some point Evernote stated pulling beta updates down, even though I have that option turned off. I'm not sure why or how to get it to stop other than turning beta download on and off again. Time will tell if that works.

Don't install version 5.3.0. Now it won't launch. Just hangs during startup.

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 don't work the same as normal Mac apps. Nevertheless the underlying concept of a cloud-sync'd database available from Mac, phone, tablet, PC... there is nothing else that competes with it. I pay for it, I use it literally every day... and I hate it's crappy buggy guts.

These so-called software jockeys STILL can't get the Sparkle sub-directory alias trick to work. What does that tell us about how much else they still haven't figured out?

Still having the problem that started with the previous update -- Evernote launches, but is totally unusable. All I get is the spinning BBOD, and must eventually force quit the app. Running the latest version of Mountain Lion on an "ancient" Core 2 Duo MBP.

Had some 'spinning beach ball' moments back with version 5.1.2 and EN was clearly buggy at this version but kudos to the EN team, they responded to resolve my issue and they appear to have fixed subsequent versions via updates. All good in Evernote land. Install with confidence.

Same with Evernote 5.1.4 under ML 10.8.4... SBBoD upon launch. Their tech support, with whom I've been in touch, seem to be unable to isolate my problem. So for now, bye-bye Evernote. Bye-bye Skitch.

Even though I understand the pressing concerns of the American Memorial long weekend, the demonstrated incapacity of the latest release suggests a calculated disregard for the Macintosh client base.

Not a crash, but upon launch Evernote goes off into a world of its own, accompanied by the Spinning Beach-Ball of Death, and never returns to the real world.

i love evernote but i wish sharing notes was quicker, for example a button to download document to desktop. and that spotlight indexing was working better. i am very annoyed by the word search feature that turns the whole document grey except the term that is searched for. it makes it very difficult to read the text surrounding the term that is searched for.

Ongoing improvements and integration with related apps, both desktop and mobile make this a great value. Nominal paid annual fee is well-worth the cost of less than one Starbucks straight coffee per month! :-)

I like Evernote. I tried several other note taking apps, but wasn't satisfied. I use it on everyday basis for studying and organizing my life. Sure, like someone below pointed out: Your stuff will never be safe in one place alone. So make backups for your important stuff. In every software or hardware there can be failures. And data loss comes with that. Nevertheless, Evernote never failed me and I didn't loose a single note. The UI on the mac is somehow more difficult to use than on Windows, where you have much less clutter and much more overview. But on the other hand the Mac UI is more beautiful.

After using Evernote mainly on a PC, I unfortunately "upgraded" to v5 for the Mac. This is a giant leap backwards. Why do developers always insist on call their interface "beautiful"?? WTF. No, it should be called "unhelpful" or "irritating" or "inefficient" instead. If you're currently using an older version Evernote on your Mac - do yourself a favor and wait til they fix this v5 mess.

DO NOT TRUST YOUR SENSITIVE DATA TO EVERNOTE I've had it with evernote. This past friday after the auto update message appeared I clicked OK to update. After Evernote restarted, I saw that some of my notes were gone. SECOND time in less than 3 weeks! I had important data saved to Evernote for a business meeting with a client and it's gone. I emailed Evernote support but they still haven't gotten back to me. You have been warned.

BBahh... I'm trying and trying to love it more, worried as I am that Shovebox will be discontinued or stop to work. I know, I know, Evernote CAN do more, but for all what Shovebox can already do, it makes it so much more 'user UNfriendly', complicate, obscure, not intuitive and... slow! The 'web clipper' is discouragingly near unusable (I mean, you will do anything else to reach the same result!) and... BY YEARS I give up after some weeks of sincere good will, then I give it another try, another chance... but no, I'm so sorry to have to tell that it's the kind of product that I CAN'T love! (...and I LOVE to fall in love with 'gems'!!)

I like evernote but I get conflicting changes from time to time, this is unacceptable in todays technology where advance systems can make accurate diffs and merge code flawlessly. both SVN and Git can perform this function why cant evernote? Also I dont like the updated UI, its more work to navigate and find notes within notebooks.

i find the new version troublesome. drag and drop dont work smoothly for pdf documents any more and spotlight indexing is poor. i should have stuck to version 4 where things were working great.

So for those of us who were using the MAS version, any tips on migrating to the non-MAS one? As others noted, it won't just pick up the library automatically, and syncing from the server won't preserve local notebooks. I used to like that the App Store freed me from watching for and downloading updates, but this is now three updates in a row that haven't shown up at all there!

I just love the ne evernote 5 Makes it even better then it was. Don't know why ppl dislike the new evernote. It is more organized. yeah sure you have to use the shortcuts now but thats a one time 3 minutes setup. finally I now can search my own notes and the notes shared with me from one location. Only think that could be better is stability. And sure there are aways improvements to be made but overal I think it is a great product!

It is SO frustrating when these companies announce a software update via MacUpdate, you download and install it over your old version of the app, and then it doesn't work properly (=deletes your old settings) and then you suddenly remember that you had originally installed the app via the App Store and it should have been updated from there, but it was not yet available there, so you assumed you had to update it manually. :-(
