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.

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 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.

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.

You mean to say it doesn't work resetting the app-specific shortcut in the OS X System preferences > Keyboard > Short cuts? That works for me in all Mac apps since a very long time, except when in one plugin submenu in java developer app Eclipse.

Evernote doesn't respect OS X settings?

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?

That's pretty much IMPOSSIBLE given how the App Store works and given the fact that digital certificates are used which guarantees that the app you download is the app as uploaded by Evernote.

So while I don't want to call you a liar... I just don't see how this is possible and I've never seen this reported by anyone else anywhere.

Two options.

1) You're storing porn in Evernote
2) You have a shared notebook or subscribe a shared notebook that has porn in it

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.

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.

@Pedro - Yeah, that's because it's the only thing of its kind, and so it sells - thus it gets "awards". But Evernote is ugly, .. just horrible to use.. That black sidebar! Bletch! All of it! I wonder why I don't like using it, and it's because it's unhappy-looking.. rubbish! I just wish someone would make something nice-looking to compete with it.

Here is a link to download evernote directly, that allow you to download it WITHOUT using the app store (at least for now until they break take the links down).

I'm putting several links here, so if one breaks then try using the next.

http://evernote.com/download/get.php?file=EvernoteMac

http://www.evernote.com/about/download/get.php?file=EvernoteMac

This is the "pre-release" (i.e. beta) download link, but at the moment it goes to the same stable release.
http://www.evernote.com/about/download/get.php?file=PrereleaseMac

Here is the download amazon e3 URL you get after going to one of the above links (at least with the current release as of 6/16/2012).

http://evernote.s3.amazonaws.com/mac/release/Evernote_257203.dmg

All of these links are all directly pointing to evernote owned servers, in case you were wondering.

Hi, I found this:
http://www.switchersblog.com/2009/07/a-potential-solution-to-keep-1passwords-button-in-safari-4s-toolbar.html
So it appears that Evernote is aware of the problem and is trying to fix it. I tried the suggested fix for clearing the toolbar, etc. but it didn't work, but that was 1Password specific. I'm writing to EVN to see if there is a fix SOON, because I too use it daily on my job search.

Regards,
Ben

Ayub had trouble on 19 Aug 2009
Wanted to have a try. Found it cool at start. Then I was copying all my VoodoopadLite notes to Evernote and everything was going fine. For two or three times during the copy the syncing went fine. Then suddenly it crashed! Was trying to send crash report. It was not responding (found in my LittleSnitch that it was trying to connect to .googlemail.com. Ok, had to quit from Activity Monitor. Then whenever I go to launch Evernote it keeps crashing. :( Bad luck for me. Ok, one thing may be that I pasted a big amount of text in a note and it couldn't handle it (maybe).
