Pros: Love the flexibility, especially the way you can embed different files within Evernote, and render them within itself (e.g. you can view Office, Xmind, PDF and other files in your notes, either as attachment or as inline render (which is very useful).

There's also some nice features like password-protected redaction of words/information in a note, classic note links (useful for cross-linking of notes) etc.

And all these wrapped within the most important thing about Evernote - its platform agnostic nature, and very robust search engine (OCR enabled).

Cons: It is hard to use - the use case is not obvious and many users and companies failed to harness its power because Evernote doesn't have a very natural way of using it "correctly". There's just too many ways to use it. And it is really difficult to keep Evernote "organised" - for personal Evernote, you can say that's perfectly fine because you probably shouldn't have tried to organise your notes (you should treat it as a brain dump, and use search instead of trying to find things navigationally), but for business, you need to organise your stuffs and Evernote still lacks the ability to enforce certain control on that. You have to rely on your team members' ability to regulate themselves and tag notes rigorously and consistently.

It also has certain limitation that's not very desirable, e.g. lack of password-protection feature of an entire note, lack of more levels when it comes to organisation of notes in notebooks (no further stacking, bundle of notebooks etc.), and you almost certainly have to use Tags instead of Notebooks to effectively organise your notes.

Pros: I use Evernote personally for about when it first emerged on Iphone and Ipad. Since then it went up and down and donw and up, it was a Rollercoaster Ride. Sometimes I came close to quiting, the again I carried on with it. Everything became more severe when I started to invite Colleagues and Friends for personal and professional Projects. a great Boost always was - most knew the product and had next to zero animosities or better to put it the other way round: Even the not-so-much bunch of people were okay in colaborating via Evernote. On Top of it, it was available on their favourite Platform (no one had to switch form Android to iOS or vici versa). Everyone knew how to use the editor, things didn't look to pretty at the start but then, after a while, like a game you get the hang of after a couple of rounds, it got better and better. Tables, Images, even embeded Videos. It all got together. Also we could choose which data would be encrypted and which was okay to stay unencrypted. Thinsg synced fine and we also had an integrated chat. Basically, Evernote had covered a lot of the needs we had as a team as wel as a band of friends in private Projects. The Features you require are there and they are easy to use.

Also, the team behind evernote is quick regarding upcoming Platform changes and usually Evernote is up to the newest iterration of the Operting System it runs on verry quickly.

Cons: Speaking of the features which are there...as it is often the case with growing platforms, there are some which are just not...my type of thing. Document templates might be something for some people, but not for us. Also, the Features are not homogenous on the different platforms. Thats right, if you want to do search-and-replace you better do not try to do it on a mac. Right Features like this are missing. Inviting People also can get a real pain in the arm in case they use Evernote privately without a busines account, as can the abominable dialogue for sharing notes on mac. It is absolutely clear that evernote is incredibly ambitious by supplying native clients for iOS, Android, Windows, MacOs PLUS a Webfrontend. This realy is awesome but it leads to raged edges when you are power user, save a team of such working cross Platform un complex projects.

Overall: I love Evernote for my personal Projects. I would not trade it for any other application in this segment for my personal and private Projects. In Business Projects my enthusiasm falters as the rugged edges which I am happy to tolerate in spare time projects are getting annoying fast when there is team efficency or pressure from clients. In my Opinion Evernote business has been somewhat bolted onto the most popular Note taking and management application, trying to utilize an extremely versatile and powerful core for business cases. It leaves me with a somewhat stale taste as I whish to use a business application which is not the add on to something else but an A priority project that receives maximum attention. Then again in the time I used Evernote I have been positively suprised time and again and I am sticking with this, at least for some more time.

Pros: Evernote stores important data and information that may be used later. It is a focal application for data acquisition that may be used in any business venue, especially in a business like yours where there is data gathered from many different sources and where many different work procedures need to be implemented for running the business efficiently. Neither data may be lost nor timed actions depending on the information may be missed or miss-executed. We can say that Evernote: 1. Stores information in a form of files called "Notes". The Notes can contain text, files (any kind of file), photos, hyperlinks, audio recordings, video, screen clips, business cards. There are some features specific to the way Evernote can store information contained in a web page as; 1. Full page 2. Article 3. Simplified article 4. Screenshot 5. Bookmark The web clipping functionality has not been implemented nearly as well in any competing product such as OneNote. 2. Notes are grouped in the "Notebooks" Notebooks are like the Collections of related Notes, which indeed is very intuitive. 3. Notes can be "Tagged" The Tags add finely "textured" categories - as a form of the "metadata", allowing for finer "indexing" of information and more useful aggregation of notes with the same tags/categories. For example; in a "Project" notebook, we can have tags such as: 1. Collecting data, 2. Preparing data, 3. Analysing data, 4. Presenting a proposal, 5. Project implementation 6. etc In this way, the "Kanban" project management applications, such as Trello, can effectively use the Evernote notes as "cards" on Kanban dashboard lists. There is also a product called "Kanbanote" which can visually display tagged Evernote notes in a Kanban dashboard sequence of subsequently executed lists of actionable cards. In that way, a Note becomes an actionable "Kanban Card". 4. Notes can have "reminders" added. The reminders allow for the Calendaring and time tracking of activities related to the information contained in Notes and Notebooks. Evernote can effectively be used as a Task management application saving time and money and simplifying employee training. 5. Information can be shared Every Note and Notebook can be shared as a "dynamic" Note so that the people you share the Note with can review your content and add changes - or the Note can be shared in the "Static" form as a message containing the information of the shared Note. The message can be sent as an e-mail or as any other kind of message. 6. Information can be searched for, located and retrieved One of the real strengths of Evernote has been the capability to perform a full-text search, searching not only within the Note title or contents but also within the attached documents, where I would definitely point out the PDF text search that can be performed over the internet on the Evernote servers. 8. Scanning, OCR and data patterns recognition Evernote Premium subscription, that I definitely recommend, also has the neat option of scanning documents and business cards of your clients and customers, performing optical character recognition on the Evernote servers, connecting with your contacts management application, such as Google contacts or similar - and proposing a way to store the OCR-ed information in your Contacts with quite accurate matching of the information for the card to the fields of your contact management application.

Cons: e main deficiency with Evernote is you cannot create notes and share them without sending them via email, twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, or with a general link. It would be great to allow one person access to certain notes through the website, similar to Google Drive. I don't believe this functionality is available though. Maybe this is part of their business features, we have not evaluated this portion of Evernote at this time. Another deficiency with this program is the size of storage available for free. Evernote offers 60 megabytes of space with their free level of the program.

Pros: Many things I like about Evernote, but I would say that my favorite is the fact that I can use it as the "hub" that contains (and sometimes triggers) most of my daily tasks. I would love to be able to review Evernote together with Zapier, as I am currently making the most out of the capabilities that both tools offer when they are combined. Evernote by itself is an extremely helpful productivity tool, and I love the fact that I don't always need to be online to update or create notes. I mostly use it to jot down ideas for new posts or articles as they come to me, and I also keep a couple of notebooks for content curation. I can add stuff from the real world as easily as I can clip websites or anything that I see on the go. To keep up with my content creation calendar, I connect Evernote with Gmail, Typeform, and Calendly. Although there are more Zaps available, these are the ones I use the most often to keep track of my contacts, review questionnaire answers that I then turn into blog posts, and keep track of appointments and phone calls. I easily share my notes and

Cons: Evernote doesn't have many flaws as I see it, but I did find a few times that some of the capabilities in other collaboration tools such as Google Drive would be handy for Evernote. I wish there was a way to keep track of my actions (such as what Basecamp does with the "everything" section). I also would love to be able to share something with a co-worker in "view only" mode (this can be done in Google Drive). As far as I've been using the tool, it does not have either of these options. Also, the way that every document or PDF has to be uploaded to a page is sometimes not ideal, as I would also like to have the option to just upload something to my notebook or to Evernote itself for safekeeping or to be able to reference it within a note.

Overall: I use Evernote to optimize my productivity. It takes care of all the reminders for me. I curate and share my inspiration boards, and allows me to easily turn them into new content that I can share with the people that will eventually polish it and give it final shape before it can go online. I import Typeform questionnaire answers to Evernote for this same goal, and I have set up a number of Gmail filters that let me know when to pitch my posts for guest posting or to get valuable links for my domain.

Comments: 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: From the name itself, one might feel that Evernote is literally a note-making software (which it is) but its utility is beyond "just making notes". 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. What I really like is the fact that you can sift through the type of content you save in Evernote. This makes it easy for me to go back to the stuff I have saved. 1) After having used other note-making software where their prime and perhaps only USP was the ease with which they let me make notes, Evernote definitely goes many steps ahead - It understands that "notes" for a professional or for a human can be beyond just text. Notes, figuratively, really are anything that is important to us. Hence, Evernote fulfills these needs by providing options like enabling audio recording and saving them as notes. 2) I like the fact that I can make separate notebooks for similar themed notes. It eases my job while searching from archived notebooks. To be able to assign tags to each notebook further makes the job easier. 3) Web Clipper is one of the most useful features especially when I am shopping online. I can just save a particular item through the web clipper option to be seen as a "wishlist" item in Evernote. It is especially constructive when I am shopping from multiple sites/apps and want to create a central wishlist repository for all the picks I like. It is equally useful for other purposes like - saving/bookmarking articles, newspieces or anything I find online that is worth keeping or remembering. 4) You can set reminders to yourself. This is another feature that makes Evernote a truly holistic software and in fact, much like a Saas. 5) Similarly, apart from creating your go-to repository for everything important, you can chat with others as well.

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.

Pros: I've used this software since 2013. This is one program that I CANNOT live without. I store EVERYTHING in Evernote. I probably don't even use 1/2 of of the functions available with this software, but I'm still determined to master it though! Pro number one for me is the convenience! I use the browser version and the app, when on my Mac, and the app on my phone, too. The capture tool on my Mac makes storing emails, screenshots, receipts, pictures, audio clips and all other document formats super easy to save for later. 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. I can literally save something in EN on my Mac and my phone instantly buzzes with the notification of the change. The search function is also amazeballs. Because EN uses OCR technology to "read" the text in files, if I searched for "sandwich" (I'm hungry), I would get a list of every file in EN that has the word "sandwich" anywhere in the file. Worrying about naming your files so that you can find them later are OVER! Some examples of the many mediums that I store in EN are: cards that are given to me for special occasions, pictures, tags off of purchases I make, user manuals for all the devices in the house, coupons, audio clips (usually made while driving), and recipes. Basically, for me, it's a one-stop shop to store the verbal, written or digital tidbits of life

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.

Overall: 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: With the current immensely growing and competitive market of desk organizers, Evernote business can really stand out. Mainly because of its simple and intuitive design, robust cloud storage and several other features like its technically universal software support, this app can make your organizational life a whole lot easier. With just a couple of days using this app, Business and education users are going to find it extremely uncomplicated to make use of the tons of pretty neat features this apps has and continues to add up to this date. Evernote promises and delivers hundreds of options for making your professional duties very easy to plan and follow up. Either for arranging important meetings, setting up future events or even making reminders or useful notes on the run. As an educator, I have found this last feature a more than useful one, since I'm always preparing language teaching materials and presentations, Evernote gives me the chance to record, scribble or handwrite pretty much about anything that comes to my mind, and I always going to have the pleasant and fulfilling feeling that the info is always going to be there, at the pal of my hand. In this continuously busy world we are living in nowadays, evernote is definitely an essential tool for the XXI century professional.

Cons: One negative aspect from this software could be how pricey it really is to get the monthly fee pay version.

Overall: Tons of excellent planning and arranging features at the palm of your hand. No matter the field you are in, organizing your life by means of this software is going to be an indispensable habit you are going to develop with this time-saving, modern app.

Comments: Evernote is a great note taking tool. Despite all the other available apps at my disposal (from Microsoft's OneNote, to Tasks and ToDo's in Outlook, as well as built-in desktop note taking and more) I still think Evernote takes the lead regarding note taking.

Pros: Any way you slice it, Evernote is all about effective, efficient note management. More than a basic note tool, Evernote lets you capture notes on anything and everything you need to manage. Evernote offers 3 levels: basic, plus and premium. Most small businesses can get away with the basic. I do and it works for me. The plus and premium offers increase upload limits, note sizes, and other features that benefits power users. The price range is truly affordable. And if you are big on note taking, Evernote is it! You can even categorize your notes in notebooks (their version of a folder). And even start chats for collaboration purposes. What is making Evernote better, is its continuous efforts to improve their products. Like their beta feature to connect meeting notes with Google Calendar. Evernote offers offline access in their plus and premium subscriptions. And Webclipper takes bookmarks to a whole new level.

Cons: Cannot say there is anything I dislike. But, some have mentioned that it does not have a fancy user interface (UI). But it is really more about functionality, which I am all about that. If you really are a power user when it comes to note taking, you really need to start with the higher levels. The basic may not give you all you need. But, start with that for free and see what you can do with it.

Comments: Evernote is an excellent, well-designed, comprehensive note organizing platform which allows profound ease of accessibility of your information wherever you are. These features make it extremely useful for business or personal use.

Pros: This idea-magnet helps you to quickly capture information, from the web, or your own generated notes, and easily organize and save this information. It is user friendly - there is no select all, copy-paste, drag and drop or formatting while trying to capture information. Instead, Evernote has a beautifully designed mobile application and browser extensions which make collecting many types of info (images, handwritten or typed notes, web pages, audio,etc) incredibly easy. With a button click, your info is stored securely and organized. Most importantly, your organized info is available across platforms. There are many nice well-thought out features to the software, including a great Android feature that lets you drag down your notification bar to quickly create a note.You can both capture web pages and control the extent which the info is saved (i.e. trimmed articles without ads, full web pages, headings, summary or links), and the notebook it is saved to. The original source link is retained as well. The sync across devices is fast and works very well on Android Mobile, Web browsers (Chrome, Firefox). There is also a desktop version as well for Mac Os and PC Download. Under the premium version, there is even the option for offline accessibility of your notes (I have not personally used this feature). The free version is very good and the cost for premium versions which include unlimited sync and other features (searching images, receipts, email) is reasonable, depending on how much info you plan to store. You can further secure access to your info with fingerprint or password protection, and you can share info with a team. Very importantly, Evernote also plays well with other tech solutions, such as Google Drive, Airtable and LinkedIn.

Cons: Trying to share info from Evernote with other people who do not have Evernote is not as simple as you would think. The storage capacity for the free version could be a little larger.

Comments: If you are a visual person or if you have the kind of attention issues common in ADHD and common also to many other right brained folks, you will often find the internet to be a very challenging thing we never had to worry about in the past. It is candy to someone like that because there are a million paths to take--- for free ---that lead to different doors and a person like me can get lost pretty easily without knowing it. I always feel like there is something I'm missing and I don't want to forget and regret it later. In that sense, Evernote has freed me to move about the internet more easily by allowing me to trick my mind into saving everything that seems important so that I can tell myself to keep moving forward instead of getting distracted. The Evernote web clipper is the best feature by far in that it quickly and properly clips most things without much more to think about and without concern that something didn't work properly. I've saved more than 9000 items in my Evernote to date. As a premium member I have never even come close to running short on my given space for the month. So it's come in handy for a person who organizes differently than most - it has become a brain dump for everything and anything I need it to be. And that relieves my mind from worrying about where I put something. That's all great. Where it still needs improvement is the usefulness after things are saved. For every 1000 things I save, I probably go back and even see about 50 of them in truth. I wind up just going back out to the internet to find them all over again - That may be just my mistake, or it may be because I feel that the notes aren't complete unless I know they are up to date and unless I can more easily visualize what I need. All of the other things tend to get lost in the notebook system that can be so simple it's actually confusing. By allowing us to sort things by various tag words or notebooks, they take the entire thing and make it more suitable for the left brained logical type of person. These are folks who can see order in words and numbers where I tend to see letters as little black bits of ink on a screen. I am much more easily able to organize things visually to determine proper workflow for me and there just isn't much of a way that I have yet found to do that. You can merge notes together, but it's a process unless you simply want to merge them, not edit them. You can't organize visually in a way that, for instance, shows you only the photos in your folders - so you can structure them in a way you understand. You can't change the order of each note so that you can manually put things where you want them and that's probably my biggest complaint. I realize there are workarounds - but it's not seamless and it doesn't allow for free flow of the thoughts. Much of what I save are simply photos , but not all - and I would love to have some more flexibility to create notes in a fashion like Curio - where anything goes and it can be as visual or as simple as you need it. Unfortunately, they don't have a web clipper although you can import your Evernote notes into a great app like Curio, it still doesn't feel the same because the visual portion of the notes is not easy to see. However, there are a ton of add-ons and for what I use it for it's great. There is something new added every day so I hope it's just a matter of time or perhaps I've missed something that will help me with this. On it's own, it's almost perfect, but it just hasn't fulfilled the hope that sooner or later someone is going to come up with an app that fulfills all needs in one. I have often copied notes into three or four apps to make sure I don't lose anything as I piece together the job in a way I can see. That wastes a lot of time and space. One day, I will either find an app that helps me make sense of what's already there or helps me take what I have and make sense of it by reordering it. Either way, it's still the best thing I have found to use every day for all data collection with the exception of video.

Pros: great search engine. never lost anything that I couldn't again find. fast, easy on system mobile apps are solid and have pen functions now somewhat customizable handles images very well - full size annotation feature great

Cons: No visual shortcut options to sort through notes and tag them visually quickly. Words don't cut it when sorting quickly and grouping. No ability to change color of backgrounds in the app so they differentiate from each other while still maintaining an order No drag and drop image function Organization is simple enough for some, but I need some real world examples start to finish to implement things for myself. I would love to see some full use cases shown that are common enough that I could cut and paste for myself. Some internal templates could help.

Pros: Evernote offers for me the best overall package of a note-taking application. I've already tried lots of different programs, but Evernote stood out in a positive matter. Most importantly, Evernote offers the ability to sync all your notes across all your devices, including a very good Android app, a performant and professional Windows version and a Web platform.

These notes can contain everything including pictures, formatting, sound, pdf and other files, which makes it very comfortable to have everything in one place. For example, travel notes can include text, the flight & hotel documents, pictures of the addresses and they can be shared easily, which is a very important feature in my opinion. Additionally, the notes can be classified in notebooks which makes it easy to sort them in categories.

Further, Evernote offers features which makes it more simple to include it in your daily workflow: you're able to easily add notes by forwarding E-Mail to Evernote, it'is possible to capture photos of documents and adding handwritten notes is a possibility for an improved note-taking experience.

Cons: All in all, I haven't found any dealbreaking disadvantages. In some cases, especially the App contains small bugs. For instance, the handwriting tool has not that many outstanding features and sometimes has a delay, the syncing is not always perfect and the Google Drive file linking sometimes just does not work in my situation. But like I've already mentioned, none of these has made me think about quitting Evernote.

Overall: To sum up, Evernote has in my view a very good feature set - I've not had a single moment in which I missed something. The applications, the web platform, the synchronization and the collaboration works perfectly in most cases. Sometimes, there are small bugs - but none of them is deal-breaking or especially annoying.

Comments: Evernote has been with me since it was a Windows application that simply offered a never-ending stream of notes. No cloud service, and many of the features people have come to rely on today were nowhere to be found. But it was still me favorite note taking app. Ever since then, Evernote has continued to progress. It's now an entirely different product that has almost no resemblance to the thing I bought originally, but in doing so it's cemented its place for me as the best note taking app in existence.

Pros: Once something goes into Evernote, it's there forever (unless you delete it). You have unlimited space, with the only limit being the amount you can upload each month (and it's generous). I was able to completely digitize every document and photo in my home within one month's limit and I wasn't even close to going over. Evernote offers great apps for all platforms (except Linux), and also has a very nice web app. You can do everything you might want from any Evernote interface available to you.

Cons: The applications are sometimes very different from each other. The desktop application has a totally different experience than the web application. The mobile experience is somewhere in between, but that's to be expected. If I forget to properly rename scanned documents, sometimes they sort of fall into a black hole where they're in Evernote but nearly impossible to find via searching, and looking manually for them would take a long time.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it out! Everyone needs to come up with their own workflow for how to get things into Evernote, and what to do with them once they're there, but for most cases, it's an incredibly useful tool!

Pros: 1. It's superbly easy to organize your notebooks, have everything visually cataloged

2. Tagging notes with keywords really powers great search experience

3. Scanning pages etc is great, really captures great notebook shots

4. Instant public sharing from a single click

5. The fact that I can easily collaborate with people without any friction. Moreover it's fairly simple to grant people access to specific notes.

6. Access the account across multiple platforms, I have all of my devices synced and absolutely love it.

7. It just seems like the most scalable platform for notes taking. I literally don't use any other platform other than Evernote.

Cons: While Evernote basically covers all of my immediate requirements, the only thing which I feel that Evernote can solve or better optimize themselves for would be the "Check-list feature". This would really allow me to better manage my 'To-dos', essentially making Evernote a one-stop solution for all of my personal notes and to-do requirements.

Overall: Innumerable benefits! Definitely the single-most used platform on daily basis for me. I have referred and onboarded multiple colleagues and friends onto Evernote.

It's scalable, I obsessively keep on noting down everything on Evernote, to the point that I have stopped using MS Word and basic 'Notes' operations offered in MacOS.

The biggest value that I have been deriving is the ability to capture photos of books I read and store them on cloud. The captured photo allows it to preserve that shot like a scanned image. This has truly allowed me to capture important pieces from books I regularly read.

Cloud note taking has never been easier.

Comments: This software is great for those who want to have their notes easily accessible and in the cloud. However, as it's primarily used as a mobile app. There is the free option available, but with the monthly upload cap, things can get frustrating quickly, especially if you are uploading a lot of voice notes. If you can afford the cost for Premium, go for it. It's definitely worth it, especially if you're using an iOS device. Yes, you could use your phone's built-in note app, but the cloud storage and OCR are worth spending the money.

Pros: As far as note-taking goes, Evernote is one of the better options available, especially on mobile. It stores your notes in the cloud, making it easy to access on both computer and mobile device. It's also available on both iOS and Android, so if you need to switch from one operating system to the other, you can bring your notes with you, unlike with something like Samsung notes, which is only available on Samsung devices. The best feature is the Optical Character Recognition. I love the ability to search for words that can either be in notes or in images.

Cons: The bandwidth restriction is not too bad if you plan to go with their Premium option. However, there is still a monthly upload cap which could get filled rather easily if you create a lot of notes, audio notes, and images. The maximum note size is 200MB which isn't often reached but is on occasion. It is also detrimental in that you cannot add a video note. I hope this will be rectified in a future update. It would also be handy to have the software "read" what you've handwritten and turn it into text.

I. Love. Evernote.

Pros: I can check Evernote on every device I own, including my laptop, iPad and Samsung Note. The notes update within seconds of being created. Now that I have the paid version, I can upload everything. I've been slowly moving docs from my computer's hard drive to Evernote. It's been much easier to use/access material than iCloud.

Cons: The reason I upgraded was because I wanted to be able to annotate PDFs. But that function didn't work the way I intended. Instead of printing with the annotations on the document itself, it prints the annotations as a separate document from the PDF - which was useless for my purposes.

Overall: Yes, I know there are other programs out there. But, I got introduced to Evernote after hearing everyone I follow online talk about it. So, I signed up. And, I've been in love ever since. I use it daily to track just about everything. I rarely open up MS Word anymore. I typically compose in Evernote and move it over to MS Word if I need to print it for professional consumption. Otherwise, Evernote is my bestest friend!

I used the free version for a while and then signed up for the paid version because it allows you to annotate PDFs. That function didn't work the way that I thought it would. But, I was still satisfied with Evernote so I didn't cancel my subscription.

Recommendations to other buyers: I've read other "professional" reviews of the product that talk about Evernote's competitiveness with other similar products. As a consumer, I want something that works. And, Evernote works for me. I'm not looking for anything else.

Pros: Organisation is not just about planning your diary but also planning your thoughts. With Evernote I have been able to capture all my ideas and thoughts and have them put into dedicated folders within Evernote, this frees up my day to day thoughts by not having to remember everything or get worked up about planning things. I can then put time aside every week to go through the notes and see what needs actioning or planning.

It's also great for just remembering things and I have loads of folders in sections for when I get a PDF or need to photograph information that I might want to look back on at a later date. You can also assign keywords/tags to the documents and it will also make pdf's searchable. This also applies to websites and with the browser plug-in, makes it really easy to capture information as either article/sample or pdf for future reference.

I tend to go networking a lot and being able to capture someone's business card and have it put into your contact and connect with them on LinkedIn all in one go is actually very useful.

Cons: Occasionally there are a few bugs and it takes a little bit of effort to get it sorted but at least their customer support actually work and helps.

Overall: It frees up my mind to concentrate on my business.

Pros: Evernote is simple, intuitive, and feature-rich. I wanted to transition both my work and personal life to a paper-free system, and I did a ton of research to design a system and workflow for doing this that would be easy to keep up with and scalable. Evernote was the clear winner as my digital 'filing cabinet' - with its impressive OCR capabilities, easy clipping and tagging features, integration with other software, and great mobile app. I was STUNNED at how quickly I was able to convert a year's worth of paper files into this digital system, and it's already saved me a ton of time when I need to reference an old document where I previously would have to search through paper files but now can perform a quick search and send it where it needs to go no matter where I am. My team also uses Evernote nearly exclusively for things like collaborative lists, meeting agendas, etc.

Cons: The only things I have ever found to complain about with Evernote have been minor annoyances - not being able to capitalize tags the way I wanted when creating a new one in-note, or how a certain version rearranged a button or two - nothing that would warrant even considering docking a star from my review.

Overall: Converted my work and personal life to a paper-free system easily and quickly.

Pros: Evernote is a handy easy to use note taking tool. It allows organizing notes into notebooks. The notes can be tagged so they can be searched by tags. Very useful when grouping things by topic. The searching ability is incredible. I am very impressed with the high precision with which the results are matched for things that are searched. At times I have used the recording feature to actually audio record important meetings so I can playback the audio and make important notes from it. Since the login is linked to my gmail, it takes backup of my notes periodically which is very awesome. I like the flexibility it provides when accessing it via web or via the mac software. Definitely recommend this to everyone.

Cons: It could use a better formatting option for a table. I personally find it a bit difficult when I need to add additional rows/columns to them. Besides this, I don't have any other complains.

Overall: Evernote is best specially when I have noted down something and I need to revisit it at a later point in time.I am able to quickly search and access the necessary information which is awesome. This is specifically useful when we are dealing with production support issues since we tend to get similar issues periodically. Although we have documentation around it, I find it easier and faster to document and access the info using evernote.

Pros: Evernote is one of those applications that since its inception has evolved in its functionality and has created new tools to facilitate the user a better organization of life, projects, events, and even mental order, which make it easier for the person to manage any type of situation. Now, with Evernote Business, the application is based on a single objective: to improve everything that corresponds to your work, allows you to interact with your work teammates, and also has an incredible platform for the organization of your company or project. And the application itself is quite simple to use, so that anyone can make use of it, and is almost indispensable for any entrepreneur of the modern era. Enough of agendas, papers, or separate files to better manage your employment. With this new model of Evernote you will find a digital platform where you will have all those possibilities in a single application. Even the use of the technological age, and this application, means that you can ignore the physical presence on a project, so you can be in contact with other members of work, even if it is on the other side of the world. You will never lose the ability to continue creating content with several members, or individually if you want. All notes, files, and so on are insured in Evernote.

Cons: How difficult it is to speak badly of application. Perhaps it is true that its platform is not as advanced as other applications, but its simplicity is what makes it worthy of being a great app. Possibly lacks more options according to the times, however, there is no doubt that for the function for which it was made, meets "The basics" when organizing a project, work, etc.

Pros: Evernote Business allows you to do everything you do in Evernote plus allows you to do the same things but business related and sharing it with your team or customers.

I have used evernote since I tried it several years back, I have to say that it is the first tool I install on every single computer or device I use.

My life is in it, simply put.

Being able to take it a step further and take the notebooks and notes and share them with your team and customers in invaluable.

Evernote allows you to save prety much everything you need (pictures, videos, notes, etc.) on the notes, and those can be arranged into notebooks.

So the level of organization is amazing. Now if you take that and put it into business settings you can have a notebook for each customer (imagine you are an architect or a home decorator for example) you can have everything you need on the project and have each of the steps on a different note and each note can have pictures and anotations for every single aspect... shared with the providers of the service and some things with yout customer.

Overall: Everything.

I wish I had it when I went to school, I would have taken all my notes there!!!

Having your life there and synched on any device is awesome!

Pros: I primarily use Evernote to keep track of thoughts and ideas I have. Evernote has a basic Notebook Stack -> Notebook -> Note structure that mimics how you would actually organize books or notebooks, which makes it intuitive, especially for a writer like me. I use Evernote to keep track of story ideas and inspiration (mostly on my phone) and go back and visit those notes later when I'm looking for an idea. It's much easier than having them on paper or in word docs. I also like the functionality of sharing notes through Evernote. I use this to share to-do lists or shopping lists. I know plenty of other apps could accomplish this, but I am comfortable with Evernote and find it easy to update and share. I know that Evernote has far more features than I am putting to use. I know you can attach files and photos in Evernote, and keep track of locations and things. I have really only scratched the surface.

Cons: If you use the free version of Evernote then your options are a bit more limited (for example I think you can only sign in on two devices). This is a little bit of a bummer. However, if you need to access Evernote everywhere, then maybe it would be worth paying for you. Overall I still appreciate the value of Evernote. I also sometimes feel a little lost in all my notes and notebooks, even though I was the one who set them up. The user interface of both the mobile and desktop versions could use a little bit of work in my opinion. Compared to the ease of navigation in, say, a program like Basecamp, Evernote isn't quite there. Still, I enjoy it.

Pros: There is so much to like about Evernote. Let me put it in list form.

1. NEVER LOSE ANOTHER NOTE - it just keeps notes... forever. So simple, so powerful!

2. Searches handwritten notes. - I don't even know how it does this. but take a picture or scan of your handwritten notes, and they are now stored forever, and searchable.

3. easy to sort, and file.

4. Pull in pictures, scans, PDF's whatever you need.

5. Cloud based. Forget your phone at home? no problem, use your laptop to see all your notes. Forget your laptop too? That's not a good start to the day... but just login online from any computer, and there are your notes. It's awesome!

Cons: I'm not sure there are any cons.

Ok, if I have to choose a con, it would be that you start using the free version and you love it, so you use it for everything, and then you run out of space and start paying for it. But, come on... that's an unreasonable con! They let you use it for free for as long as you want until you're ready to pay for it, which you will be.

Overall: I love it. You need it. Install this software on your desktop, laptop, phone, tablet, and your kids' tablet. You're going to love the ability to take down notes and thoughts no matter where you are, and have them forever. As the name implies.

It remembers EVERYTHING! Enough said..

Pros: I do not leave home without my Evernote (literally) as i use it on several of my devices and it synchronizes so well between them. It does such a good job of archiving my personal notes and scribbles, work and meeting notes, travel plans, everything i throw at it.

Also love the ability to turn any note into a presentation with one-click. Very impressive when sitting with a client!

Not being the most organized person with notebooks and tags, i absolutely love how well the contextual and keyword search works.

I used a third-party smart pen / notebook to feed my hand-written notes into my Evernote and it surprises me every time how well it recognizes and makes my messy handwriting searchable.

Even though i don't use a lot of the reminders and team collaboration functionality (90% of my Evernote usage is for me only), it's still an app that is irreplaceable for me.

Cons: - The team are not very communicative with new features and suggested best practices in my experience.

- Reminders feature is a bit hard to fathom. I started to learn and then just switched back to my other task management app as it seemed like an overhead to my 'don't make me think' process.

Pros: Google uses a lot of discs and RAM to work as a large brain. You can have your own, really customized brain extender with Evernote. Just e-mail or copy all bits and pieces you might need to remember later. Or just copy all your banking records, all calling and SMS records there. In a few months you will feel that having the extension of your brain is very helpful. "Where I was year and a half ago after visiting Berlin?"... Those questions are becoming easier to answer if you keep this info for yourself.

And if you are in business -- it is also worth to keep this kind of business knowledge in one place, with the system to help you find small pieces of information there.

You may use Google for that, but Evernote has an important thing Goodle lacks -- it will OCR images, PDFs and made them universally searchable.

Try it for yourself, and you will see how great it is to have additional memory for yourself.

Cons: When your personal memory starts to grow into many gigabytes, you may encounter problems with speed with Evernote, but unofortunately this seem to be the common problem - the more knowledge you have the more time you should spend searching.

Pros: I use Evernote to take down important details and information on certain projects/tasks that I am working on. I can easily organize my notes and research with this application. If I want to add pictures and files that would help me with my tasks, I can categorize my notes by topic or subject. What I like about Evernote is that I can use the voice recording instead of taking notes by typing. Then attach the voice memo as an additional information on that topic too which is great! All in one place using various method of collecting information. Web Clipper is also the best. Its amazing that I can browse websites and simply use web clipper to clip pages that would help my research which is much more convenient than going back and finding the site again. Everything in one place!

Cons: For cloud storage, others might choose One Note because it's linked to work emails and Microsoft applications that are always used at work.For Microsoft users, they can find One Note available or an application being suggested.But if they would compare, Evernote has unique features that can't be found in other note taking application. And they all function well and helpful.

Pros: It is flexible and complete. Flexible in that you can set it up how you want. If it's hard for you to lose all your notebooks (folders) then you can still organize using notebooks, and sub-notebooks. Yet, the power of Evernote is that you tag each note with the main subjects for accurate searching. It is complete in that it is a "one-stop shop" for all notetaking. As a preacher, I use it to quickly make a note of a sermon idea. Later, I'll develop that sermon in Evernote and use it to preach from, as well. As a singer/songwriter, I click the record button when I get some inspiration and capture not only lyrics but audio within the same note! When I get an email with some information I need to store, I simply forward to Evernote. Or, I take a picture of a cool craft idea and store it for the future. I could go on... But, my point is Evernote becomes your complete digital filing system accessible on any device, anywhere and at any time.

Overall: It has literally become my digital brain for anything I need to reference. I use it daily, either on my computer, phone or iPad and sometimes all three! I have recommended this software to many people and have helped several get it setup.

Pros: I don't remember for sure, but it seems like Evernote was one of the first pieces of software to come out that really harassed the power of multiple-device/computer syncing. In the early days, I couldn't believe how quickly data was changed on my home computer after uploading changes from my work computer. At the time, it seems like Evernote was way ahead of the game.

Today, this continues to be the product that makes workplace syncing a breeze. Collaboration is the name of the game with Evernote, and the ability of the software to work with other quality products (like Slack, Google Drive and Salesforce) is another clincher. It's hard to find software that can keep everyone on the team on the same page, but Evernote does it as well as anyone. While we don't use this product like we used to, that has more to do with the changing nature of our internal business than it does with the product itself, and I can highly recommend Evernote to anyone looking to bring a team together.

Cons: The price point is competitive with similar products, but it seems like other offerings can do similar tasks as Evernote for less money. Granted, you always get what you pay for, and Evernote is still tops in so many ways. The only other "con" I experienced was that we would have liked to have had other software integration options, but that was really pretty specific to our industry (publishing).

Overall: If you need to bring a team together, looking at the same content with real-time changes visible to everyone, Evernote might be your best option...and it's a good one!

Pros: It's simple. Clean. Neat. Easy to use. All the things that a great note-taking app should be. Oh yeah, it also syncs between my devices -- so if I write something at work that I need to pull up at home, no worries! Oh yeah, Evernote has quite powerful organization. Organize by creating a zillion notebooks for every possible sphere of your life, OR keep fewer notebooks and organize by tags. Brilliant. Oh yeah, it also has the ability to keep all sorts of content -- attachments, images, text, audio, stuff clipped from the web, you name it. Oh yeah, for writers... I've used Evernote quite a bit as a minimalist word processor, especially when I want to write in the coffee shop on my laptop, then come home and find that my document is waiting for me on my desktop. What's not to love?

Cons: Here's what's not to love: the freemium pricing model. While I LOVE the fact that I can use Evernote for free, I truly wish I could just pay a onetime fee instead of a monthly/yearly subscription. If you stick with the free version, you're limited to 2 devices, so forget about connecting your home computer, laptop, work laptop, iPhone and iPad.

Pros: Evernote Business has been a necessity for my media and communications team to be able to create a space to stay organized, share thoughts, brain storm, and move a project all the way to completion. The fact that the whole team can stay up to date and that the information can sync across all of my devices is something that I can't no longer work without now that I have had it.

Cons: The biggest trouble I have had with Evernote is its formatting of text. Although it is perfect and beautiful within Evernote, once I copy and paste it to any other software (word, adobe, etc.) it does not translate and the formatting is all over the place. Returns and indents where there should be and so one. I always have to clear the formatting and do that part of the work again. Not a deal breaker but something that would be greatly appreciated if fixed.

Overall: I am able to keep organized throughout my team. This means if I upload a mock up, my team can all instantly see it, edit it, brain storm and dream about it. Which moves us onto the next phase of drafting it, then printing, all the way to completion.

It allows my team to preview drafts of my multimedia and immediately provide feedback to the whole team where we can communicate as if we were all together.

Pros: My favorite thing about Evernote is the multiple options it allows users to save sources, webpages, notes, images--all across multiple platforms, such as smartphones, web browsers, and your desktop.

I find this to be so helpful because I do not need to waste time or get distracted going to an external program to save a source I find online--I simply click the evernote browser icon and it saves the page for me. Later, I can go to organize all the sources by categories and tags.

Cons: I have found the sharing feature of Evernote to often have small glitches, and be a bit unreliable. For example, I save some notes to my phone, then sync the app to my computer. Later, I go to check the notes on my computer and they have not synced. I contacted support and they assured me I just need to sync my phone again, which worked.

Additionally, I wish evernote had stronger features for sharing sources/notes/etc. with other users. I have likewise experiences unreliability when trying to share with other evernote users.

Overall: Ease of use, free resource to track and manage research notes and sources, and provides confidence that all my notes are in one place, but yet accessible through multiple platforms.

Pros: Evernote has apps for all the devices I use and every major platform out there. Many other apps and services plug into Evernote in various ways. I like that I can store things through many different channels (from Webclips, to Documents on the PC, the camera or a scan app on why phone and by forwarding emails to name just a few). The paid versions let you search the content of PDF files and images which means you can find almost anything again. I use it as my archival storage but also to keep a reading list of various PDF documents I need to look at, a place to gather all my meeting notes (handwritten ones get scanned, others get entered directly into Evernote), keep a log of websites I have read and may want to refer to in the future and so much more.

Cons: Sometimes it becomes a bit unwieldy. Because it tempts me to save everything I sometimes end up with too much cruft and not only with essential things I really need to refer back to. But I guess that's me, not the software. My only other thing is that sometimes it seems to Sync slow and mobile apps at times (sometimes before, sometimes after updates) can become unstable and crash.

Pros: Evernote is one of the best applications I have ever come across. The customer support is great, it has a sleek interface, vivid colors, easy to use software and alot of online video tutorials available over the internet for help. During presentations, I tend to write a lot of notes and as soon as I am done, I can easily take a picture with Evernote and store images. In this way I can have a back up of everything I have written. I can record audio files, upload pictures and even PDF files. One of the best features is the smart search feature. So for example, if I ever uploaded a lunch receipt and in order to find it, I only have to search the restaurant's name on evernote. The software itself detects the name and my desired receipt is in front of me. Being cloud based, I can access it anywhere in the world so even while travelling, I have all my data with me. Evernote works perfectly on iOS, Android, Windows and surprisingly, even on Blackberry! A must have software

Cons: Evernote doesn't have much problems and I only have a few suggestions. It should surely improve its editing software so that it is better. Also, a major feature lacking is the calendar. No calendar is available for any planning. I have even faced a few problems while using this software. Evernote tends to crash / shut down when I use the software for long. So this needs to improve as well.

Comments: I absolutely love Evernote. I use it every day, multiple times a day and I use it to manage several projects. It has replaced all of my paper systems for storing and saving information, the only exclusion to this being official government documentation. The tagging system allows me to keep track of what is in each note and reduces my need to have a super-detailed filing system for my notes. It allows me to get down to work on the things that matter without the interface getting in the way.

Pros: - Powerful feature set - audio notes, handwriting notes, .PDF support, sharing and communication built into the app, etcetera. - Wonderfully clean and simple GUI (Android and Web)

Cons: - GUI on Windows seems to lag a bit behind the other platforms in development. It does not feel as clean and simple as the other apps that are available. - Virtually no support for any of the Linux based OS;s. Which is a shame, because Evernote is a must-have, in my book.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try out the free version and read a few articles on how to make use of all its features. There are a lot of them, and you likely won't need all of them, but it is so versatile that there are many ways to utilize it effectively as a resource. That may be all that you need, too. But you can get more and the costs to upgrade are not steep.

Pros: Evernote makes it a snap to take notes for online courses and to upload content from various websites. I can format notes as bullet or numbered lists. I can also easily attach or embed files into existing notes. Web Clipper is a life saver. Evernote is easy to use, very flexible and enables me to save a lot of time.

Cons: The formatting option for code has disappeared, which makes it harder to distinguish code snippets from text in my notes. I really want that restored. Evernote's organization capabilities could be expanded. As of now, I can create a notebook, then insert another notebook into it, which is good. I'd like that extended to another level, though; i.e., I can now create a notebook called Programming, then add a notebook to it labeled JavaScript; I'd like to be able to then add a notebook to the JavaScript notebook labeled, Closures (for example). In re formatting, I'd also like to be able to copy a list from another app into Evernote, then format a line or series of lines as, say, a bullet list, without having every line of the copied text formatted the same.

Pros: I like that Evernote provides a great way for teams to collaborate with one another. 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. I like that templates can be copied, which helps as we standardize certain operational processes (I personally use for our client annual renewals & sales intake forms) and then for so many other reasons. I had a training notebook when I first started my position, that allowed me to contain various training documentation in one place. It's such an easier more efficient way to manage a large volume of notes. This also my MacBook to be my office! I'm not lugging around different notebooks and forms to and from work. I literally don't keep a single piece of paper on my desk or in my filing cabinet. Not a single one. That's pretty amazing.

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.

Overall: 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.

Comments: I used this when it first came out years ago and it has only gotten better over time

Pros: It offers a lot of various ways to take notes and keep track of all your information. You can take audio notes, picture notes, handwritten notes, etc. The snap shots you upload to the program can be written on as well. It supports PDF files, which you can also upload and write on (this is what I use the app for most). They have an app for ipad, phone, and laptop, which all work seamlessly with each other. Their search function is great too because it can pick and find words from uploaded documents, as well as what you've typed on/off documents.

Cons: The phone app will crash from time to time (an update to rectify this is usually done quickly after though). While your notes sync quick and easily among all of your devices, sharing or sending any of it to another person is a hassle if they don't also use the same level of service as you because of the storage limits. The application is a bit more pricey than others but they have different package options to accommodate different needs.

Pros: I've been using Evernote for the past 2 years, during which my productivity steadily grew from posting 1-2 blog posts a month to 3-4 a week! What Evernote provided me with was a solution that allowed me to record my notes on the go via their mobile app, in any format I felt like let it be text notes, a voice note, a picture I captured on the go or even a sketch. This allowed me to instantly record my thoughts and ideas on the go and have them ready for when I sit down to write my posts on the desktop app! In addition, Evernote's editor is quite powerful and allowed me to showcase my creativity when it came to the blog post design and implementing online templates right into my notes allowed me to make the most out of this powerful tool!

Cons: While Evernote has a free plan, however you can easily outgrow it once you start capturing media content and adding them to your notes. The paid version of Evernote can be slightly pricey for those who don't benefit fully from its capability . I faced some small bugs here and there with Evernote, but nothing major or critical. However, it is worth noting that Evernote's team are quite responsive to the community and are on top of things.

Cons: I hate how easy it is to use :) Really nothing to hate about this software!

Overall: I use Evernote on a daily basis. I have notes and things I have written down since back in 2013. I would never have been able to keep notes and information this organized on paper or in an e-mail. This really has saved me in different situation with my business. It's easy to send clients notes or information to other developers that I work with. I love the functionality to be able to add audio notes and Facetime video notes. I use the free version but they do have a free trial for the premium, if that's what you need I'm sure it's well worth the mony. I keep my notes tagged and organized so all I have to do is search a couple of words and I can see my note right there. Trust me I have thousands of notes since 2013 and it's a breeze to find anything. Thanks Evernote!

Pros: Just about everything. I love the user interface. I love that I can access it on every device I have, including my computer. I love that it updates simultaneously on all devices. I love the tag system. Now that I've been using the program for more than a year, I depend on those tags to be able to find older things I've deposited in Evernote. I also ended up purchasing the premium version which allows me to keep pictures and other things in Evernote instead of paying Apple or Google for storage.

Cons: One of the things that persuaded me to purchase the premium version is that I could annotate PDFs. That function does not work the way I thought it would and I ultimately do not use it for that. Disappointing but not a deal breaker.

Overall: I can't remember how I learned about Evernote but it is my all time favorite app. I use it for everything - personal and business. I keep my gratitude journal with Evernote and I work out my sermons with Evernote. I also purchased the scannable app that allows me to scan anything and everything into Evernote. I use it to capture articles for research that I find in magazines and other periodicals.

Recommendations to other buyers: You won't be disappointed.

Pros: Evernote is just so easy to use. I just love the fact that I can capture anything - text, emails, web clippings, pictures scanned docuemts,, sketches or voice notes, and then sort through it and file it at will. Evernote holds all the 'post it notes' ofmy brain, all the little snippets of stuff that occurs to me throughout the day.

It syncs between my phone, my tablet and my desktop, so i can always find what I need. i also love the reminder fuction, so tht the exact thing I need can pop up forme on the day I need it

Cons: Nothing really - I find it reallyintuitive to use from start to finish

Overall: I'm a solopreneur running a blog, so I don't really use the team sharing elements of Evernote, although I know they are there. For me the real thing this does for me it allows me to capture my thoughts and ideas whenever I have them, and hold them safely in one place so that they are there for me when I'm putting my content together.

I also use it for storing and labelling all the little documents and bits an pieces that go into my accounting records. I'm naturallyquite a disorganised person, but Evernote helps tme to hold everything together

Comments: This product beats any other note taking tool I've used. It's easy to upload photos, easy to just type notes, easy to handwrite notes. The organization is really easy to. I've used it nearly ten years, and I expect I'll use it for ten more.

Pros: Evernote is my note system of choice. Before the advent of phone-specific or operating system-specific note tools, Evernote took over my note-taking life. Being able to access my notes anywhere and anytime is extremely helpful, and they've only continued to offer better features to support general note taking. The document scanner replaced my physical scanner, the attachments helps me keep related information together, and shareability is key to Evernote collaboration. The tool is my Swiss Army knife of notes.

Cons: I do not like that they changed their freemium design to only allow two synced devices. Honestly, the product is nearly perfect for free use except the more recently instituted two-device limit. While you can still access your notes from the web, anywhere, it's a hassle to not be able to have my laptop, mobile, and tablet all synced up.

Comments: This is my primary notetaking app. It's exactly what I want from such an app, and I love the fact that it stores my notes in the cloud and allows me to access them from anywhere.

Pros: The ability to apply the exact kind of text formatting you would want from a notetaking app (e.g., bullets, checkboxes, bold, italics, underline, indentation, etc.). This robust functionality makes this app extremely flexible for daily use: task lists, memos, even essays if you prefer this over more traditional word processing options. Syncs across multiple platforms (computer and mobile device). But even with all this functionality, it's not overwhelming or confusing like other notetaking apps. I also appreciate the developers' frequent updates to application.

Cons: Sometimes, if I've applied a lot of formatting to a given note, the app will slow down both on my smartphone and on my laptop. My laptop has 8GB RAM and an Core i5 processor. I know that's not game-changing power, but a simple app like this shouldn't slow it down. I hope they fix this in an update in the near future.

Pros: I use Evernote daily. I use it for business and for personal stuff. I use it to create grocery lists, keep my gratitude journal, take minutes in every meeting, record my thoughts as I read books, think out ideas...you name it!

Cons: The annotation function for PDFs does not work well. I signed up for the premium version a few years ago because I wanted that feature specifically. I needed to annotate some PDFs and then download the document with the annotations.

I got the annotations in but they do not download as annotations ON the document. Instead, they download as a separate doc with a list of what you intend the annotate. That was useless for my purposes. I didn't renew the premium version because of that.

I still love the software but I don't see what you're paying for if that feature doesn't work correctly.

Overall: Robust storage system. Record voice notes. Upload multiple files. There's a cool scanner software that uploads directly to Evernote. Store almost any kind of file. Segment notes into notebooks for ease of finding. Tag notes for ease of searching. Share note with anyone also using Evernote.

Pros: 1. First thing its handy compared with traditional notepad.

2. It's good for making record of everything like what my plans are for today, for tomorrow, what are the thing I want to remember etc.

3. They provide thirty days free trial its the time when you use the interface, looks for its advantage and disadvantage and then if it fits to your lifestyle and business you go for it.

4. Evernote has evolve I can access all my notebook and files from any device even offline.

5. It has great support system I mean if you stuck somewhere and needed help regarding its any functionality you can just google it as they have large user base so every problem is already taken care of.

Cons: Sometimes it becomes overwhelming and i want to uninstall it.

It needs some time to master it.

Evernote business is paid.

Real time editing is not there.

Overall: It works as record keeper for like a personal assistant.

Now everything I do is all managed and accessible from any device.

Days of forgetting things are now gone.

It really helps me to collaborate with team mates.

Pros: This is a great app for someone who needs one place to store anything and everything. I have been using this for last 2 years. Easy to use and user friendly, the key features of this app are collaboration, taking notes, creating to do list, reminders and managing events. By far the most comprehensive multi sync enabled across all devices app, this is very helpful and useful. People are surprised when they see me plucking information in matter of minutes and presenting it. The new dark theme is an eye catcher, worth the upgrade. The search functionality works flawlessly, put a word and it searches the entire user context. I recommend this app to anyone who wants to collate all information centrally and want quick data outcomes. You can also copy data and post it seamlessly across any social media apps.

Cons: Evernote should look at introducing API services so that calendar synchronization across some of Google products work. Also add more colors to highlights rather than current yellow.

Comments: This app is by far the most important app in my day to day routine across my use of my MacBook Pro, iPad, iPhone, and shared work and public computers. It is how and why I am a productive knowledge worker. I only thought I understood productivity until I started using this app, and I used other note systems like OneNote, Wunderlist, etc before I began using Evernote.

Pros: The app works consistently well across what I consider the core feature set in every platform - mobile tablet, mobile phone, iOS, Android, Mac, Windows.

Cons: Tagging, which I find critical to maximizing productive use of the app, requires ridiculous amounts of scrolling on mobile platforms. If they implemented tag search on mobile this would be a non-issue.

Recommendations to other buyers: Be open minded to workflow improvements or reboots. I know we all would prefer if our apps adapted to our workflows, and for the longest time that is what kept me from embracing Evernote completely, but once I dove in and spent around 15-20 minutes of googling to research how to optimize my workflows using Evernote, I increased my productivity by a factor of at least 10X (I feel like it's more like 20-30X but I get so many looks of incredulity and demands for hard data when I say the higher levels that I have just quit and stick with 10X)...

Pros: I have used Evernote (personal) since I was in college. From free then upgraded to Premium. I love how it just helps me to organize all my college notes/to-do's/etc into one place.

That's why I was indeed very happy to have it again with me now in my office / business startup. All things I loved about personal evernote is made even better with Evernote Business. I get to easily take down notes on the fly (smartphone, tablet, and my laptop), during meetings I also get the feature of saving an Audio recording (of course with the permission of the attendees), and when I browse the Internet, I have a handy clipper for my reference and used for presentations.

The newest thing for me that I love the most is the birth of templates. Very handy and I'm sure more template will be made and shared. Also, the black theme! Finally! :)

Also, the very benefits I have of personal use, is now made for workplace collaboration. I can easily share my notes with team members, as well as task lists and reminders. Very useful for my project teams.

Cons: Just a minor quirk on the UX... I would really like the phone/tablet app to go on fullscreen editing. I mean, there's a top bar that's pretty huge that takes up screen real estate. Other than that, I really love Evernote (personal and business)

Pros: Evernote is integrated so well into any OS and any environment that you can always and easily store any information in any format into it with a blink of an eye. Be a business card that you just take a photo with your phone and Evernote will read everything on the card even send back your business card, or be it scanners that can scan and OCR documents directly into Evernote or be it an email with attachments that you just forward to an Evernote email address. You can catch everything you want to keep for the future (archive) very easily. Once it is stored in Evernote it is also pretty easy to find stuff because everything is word indexed, even attachments and scanned documents (if you use the right scanner) It has saved my day more than once!

Cons: Search functionality could be better if there would be additional facets for the search like time, people, document types... Sometimes the index gets out of sync with the documents which basically "hides" documents from being found

Pros: This is by far the note taking app I prefer as I use this for everything . The fact that I can sync this across any device (including the computer app) is to much. Since I started using it I had no troubles and no glitches, and that´s a lot to say. Such a great tool with cloud storage support and beautiful user interface. So simple to use, take and edit all of my notes. I love the feature where I can set an icon on my home screen to open a specific note, and also that I can always find whatever note I have written in past phones. So clean and quick to organize, always keeping my thoughts clear. I would recommend this to anyone. Taking notes with pictures? Yes please.

Cons: Well even thought I use the free version, I thing that the storage limit could be a little higher. Taking this into consideration, I think the full version is kind of pricey. It still awesome anyway.

Overall: Being able to retrieve anything that I have written before at anytime, anywhere, is just lovely. Thank You.

Pros: The great search capabilities, the clipper for my browsers and the email to Evernote feature.

Cons: It can't read my mind and automatically sort and file for me into folders. But it will if I give it directions. Not really anything I don't like about it.

Overall: Evernote is my virtual assistant in many ways. I am terrible at filing and organization, but Evernote understands that and works with my scatter-brained work patterns. My three favorite features are the browser clipper, the amazing search capabilities and the ability to forward an email to Evernote with a simple click. I use the clipper to save articles when I'm researching a topic or even recipes and other items I find online that I want to save. When I get an email that I want to save, I send it to Evernote and can delete it from my inbox. The very best of the best is that I can always find something that I saved to Evernote. I don't have to remember what folder it is in. I can search on any word that would be in the text or by tags. I wish looking for lost car keys was that simple. It also has a mobile app, desktop software, and online login, so I always have access to my information.

Recommendations to other buyers: Features continue to be added but the simplicity of use remains intact.

Pros: Evernote Business adds excellent functionalities to its normal version, which are focused on the business area, we know if we have already used the tool, that evernote is excellent to organize and store all the everyday in one place and so it is accessible from anywhere, but the version business adds extra features that we can use for our business or company, we can organize all the files in the application, categorizing by date, department, date of creation, etc, so when the interested team wants to access only download the file and ready, you can modify it and reload it in the cloud so that everyone can download it or simply read it and update it, present it to a client or use it in a presentation, avoid losing important files or that the person who has it's not accessible at that moment , greatly enhances the response capacity and access to the information of the team, bringing great benefits to your team work, it's excellent.

Cons: The free version does not allow you to save word, excel files, among others which is a great disadvantage so if you want to enjoy this you should pay for the full version.

Overall: Excellent to organize all that concerns your business or company, accessible to the team from anywhere, categorized correctly to maintain a complete order.

Pros: Evernote is the multi-tool of note takers. With the ever-expanding web clipping functionality, it can pull in any kind of content from anywhere and it keeps it organized with zero effort. (Although you can go nuts with tagging and nested notebooks if you want to.) While the cost has risen over time, there is no other tool that runs as well on as many different devices as Evernote, nor one with as many power-user tricks up its sleeve.

Cons: The cost is creeping up into the unacceptable range for a single user. While reducing the functionality of the free version was a necessary evil to stay profitable, the mid-tier plans have also suffered more than perhaps they should have. There is also still a level of technical debt in the program - bugs that have lingered for years - that seem to have bee back-burnered in favor of new features. If those features are useful to you, that's a great priority, but if they aren't, the frustration can build up.

Pros: Evernote, is an acceptable tool to adjust our daily agenda with the constant vicissitudes that are presented every day. This is a point of honor that must be clear, assuming the extensive and congested work days that we have daily in the editorial project and in the parallel activities that we do.

Evernote offers an unseen way of organizing and systematizing outstanding events with an enviable efficiency, placing personalized reminders in each event so that no activity is overlooked. Added to this has an excellent interface that makes everything much easier.

Cons: It disturbs me a bit that this software works only with an internet connection. In the Editorial, we have had significant problems when we have problems with Internet connectivity, since the work or assignments are practically frozen, until we recover the connection, losing valuable time during the day

Overall: Evernote offers a series of interesting tools for professionals with tight work schedules. However, they could improve a bit the percanse that you have when using evernote and have no internet connection, if this is resolved, evernote may be the best digital agenda you have ever known.

Comments: I organize my whole life on Evernote. It is the gold standard when it comes to note taking apps. I literally do not know what i would do without it. It is my second brain.

Pros: It is super easy to use but does not fall short on features. The best thing about it is the community behind Evernote. There are many third party applications to extend its functionality. like i use this service called taskclone. what it does it takes any to-do from a note that you tag "taskclone" and copies them to any to-do app (like asana or wunderlist) so that you can further delegate to your team and efficiently go through your day.

Cons: This might be a personal thing nut since i have everything on Evernote, i wish it had more features in terms of organization. like an extra option of being able to add sections to notebooks (like in OneNote) which can provide further organization to my stuff without cluttering up Evernote with a lot of notebooks. And also the "remember view option" setting for notebooks should be extended to whole stacks because it defeats the purpose when the thumbnails of my notes can be viewed from the stack but hidden in my notebook.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use it. organize your life.

Evernote has taken over the organization of my entire life. Can't live without it.

Pros: The ability to sort by notebooks, use tags, clip websites and easily find anything within seconds with the search field means that I use this for EVERYTHING. Business, volunteer work, school work, important information, even recipes. If I want to save something to easily find later, I use Evernote. I can easily set reminders so that I don't forget to follow up.

The app is great for accessing or saving information while on the go, I can record or write, not limited to typing which is great when I get an idea when stuck in traffic.

Cons: The web interface is not appealing or as easy to use as the apps. 3rd party integrations have to be reconnected every once in a while which can be annoying.

I don't like the regular pricing but the free account has a nice set of features as long as you don't need more than 2 devices and they run decent promotions from time to time.

Overall: It keeps my entire life organized and easy to access anything from anywhere.

Pros: The user experience of Evernote is supremely designed. Whether you're using it on the Web, Desktop or Mobile, the design carries over and provides the user with continuity that simplifies use.

The note taking ability of Evernote is exceptional because it can be a bundle of text, photos, graphs or anything that is easily organized within the app. When stuck in a long meeting with a million ideas flowing, there's no better app to gather your thoughts and share with your team.

The scanning feature has saved us several times as well, this is one of the most underrated and useful features of the application and I'd be lost without it.

Cons: The price can get a little hefty with a large team. Our marketing and sales team is currently not too big so it's not a problem at the moment.

Overall: Evernote for Business has allowed my team seamless collaboration and note sharing. The scanning feature and the organizational power of the app allows us to keep our thoughts in order.

Pros: Since upgrading Evernote to their Premium Plan, I have been using it on a daily basis. I love that everything can be organized within "Notebooks" and "Notebook Stacks" and I like the ability to save PDFs into the software as opposed to going through a file folder trying to find a specific PDF. The search function and tag function make finding documents or notes super easy. Also, the Chrome extension is a feature I use every day, I take screenshots and save content from websites to read for later.

Cons: The only thing i would change about Evernote is adding in a calendar function would be amazing. You can technically keep a calendar in a note, they do offer templates for this, but I would like to see an actual calendar with reminders that could link to notes. Also, being able to "pin" your favorite or most used notes to the top of the list would be so helpful.

Overall: The ability to access any documents and notes or make changes from all my devices.

Pros: Presentation functionality works really well.

Stacks are a great way to organize notes.

Easily take a picture of a document, which then converts to a scanned document.

Evernote Web Clipper is a great extension to pull in ideas when you don't have to time research.

Good sharing functionality.

Works OK for project management.

Cons: The search functionality isn't all its marketed to be. For example, if I search a keyword, all of the notes with that keyword will show up. That's good. The issue is that I will then have to search each of those notes for the keyword, instead of being shown a line or two around the keyword. For long notes, this is cumbersome.

Overall: Evernote is in a strange placing of trying to discover itself. It is placing itself as a competitor to both note taking apps, and cloud based drives. Although I love the tool and use it for work, school, and play, I'm not sure it's worth the price. I'm resigned to paying for it until a better solution comes out (or they make the tool better).

Pros: - I love the notebooks to help with organization. I have main notebooks, like a folder, where I have multiple notes that are relevant.

- The formatting is excellent. There are great options for font format, check boxes, lists, etc.

- There are many ways you can customize how your Evernote appears. The 'view' menu has the longest list of options!

- There's a Chrome extension. Enough said!

- The quick sync between my phone and laptop is amazing.

- I can share notebooks with other people which makes coordinating easier.

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.

Cons: NONE

Overall: As a property manager I first started using Evernote as a tool for my employees in the field to share information like receipts for my accounting department, pre arrival and departure inspection photos, gas meter photos, home tutorials and guides and more. Because my employees in the field can upload their receipts, and the receipts are searchable it's super easy for my accounting department to track down specific charges. They can simply search the Evernote app for the cost of the charge or the name of the Vendor to locate the receipt. This makes it easy to match up charges with receipts at the end of the month.

I also started setting up personal folders and notes for myself. All of my families vaccination records, projects i'm working on, trip itineraries and more. The fact that I have access to all my notes, whether i'm on my iPhone, my laptop or my desktop at the office is key.

The app for the iPhone is super functional. I even use the iPhone app to take photos of documents and receipts and turn them into documents that are indexed and searchable. I also use the program to store contacts. The program has a great feature that let's me take photos of a business card and the choice to email my contact information after I scan the business card.

This is a great app worth having. Everyday I seem to be finding a new use for it.

I use this program just about daily for both business and personal tasks.

Pros: I love the offline note feature which allows you to view, edit and create notes offline and then sync them once you are online. This is helpful in many scenarios where getting online isn't an option (like a flight or internationally) and allows productivity to continue. It is easy to create and edit content and share it with multiple people whenever you need. The ability to create private notebooks and annotate PDFs are also helpful features. It is also useful to be able to access your saved information from any device with your log in (phone, laptop, desktop, tablet, etc.) and everything stays synced across them seamlessly.

Cons: There aren't many cons because the workflow here is pretty seamless. However, there have been some glitches where editing an offline note made it completely inaccessible except for on the device it was created and it wouldn't sync. I've also had the problem where the newest version of a note didn't sync and then reverted to a much older version. Customer Support was instrumental in both cases to solve the issue and no data was lost.

Pros: I love this application because you can create notes that are immediately synchronized in all your devices and in this way you can have your agenda where you need it. Backup all your information in the cloud, you can also browse and save a certain page, and what I like most is that you can find what you have stored very easily in the search bar of the application. I recommend it to anyone who wants to organize.

Cons: The only inconvenience I have had with this software has been when it comes to synchronizing the files since sometimes it presents slight flaws, this may be due to the fact that the files are very heavy and the computers are not the most optimal in operation. For the rest I stay with Evernote Business.

Overall: Evernote Business is a great ally, it has given me a feeling of control and stability, since it has allowed me to organize my agenda both personally and professionally, and enjoy that sense of tranquility that fulfills the commitments and duties raised .

Pros: Evernote business provide a lot of unique and interesting features like it is possible to search the document with the text it contains be it a pdf or an image. Version control is also an important feature which enables restoring to previous versions if something goes wrong with the latest one. It is easy to create repositories at one single centralized place so that all the information is accessible to relevant team members. It also gets integrated with other Apps we use like iMessages and few others. Reminder is also a nice addition to the feature set which can help not to miss an important note related task.

Cons: The document editing functionality is limited and is only available with the desktop app which somehow takes away the advantage of doing things on the go. Also, the document hierarchy system is less intuitive than a normal notes structure which makes users take a longer time to get used to it.Also, security is an issue with Evernote. There is no way to enable 2 way authentication for access to Desktop version or restrict access with a password.

Pros: You can tell that the user experience team have spent a long time working on the Evernote user interface, everything is logically considered and easy to use. This is particularly good as it's easy to introduce new team members to, they can pick it up pretty quickly.

There's a wealth of tools available on the platform, and the one tool I use almost daily is the check box feature. There's not much too it, it simply converts lines of text into a checkable list. It's simple, but efficient.

The ability to compile notes into notebooks, and notebooks into 'stacks' is incredibly helpful. I have different stacks for work and personal projects, and within those I have notebooks for specific projects.

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.

Overall: 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: I love that the interface is so incredibly easy to use. You hit "New Note", write it, it gets autosaved, and you put it in your list of notes, and if you want to put it into a notebook. We take tons of notes at internal and external meetings. We use notes to record what we need to, and from there make lists of action items and assign them WITHIN the note. The fact that you can have a note that autosaves, and other people can go in and edit and those changes are also saved is AMAZING. It make collaboration and storing info so easy - one of my favorite softwares ever! I use it for business and personal. Love that I can use on the desktop or online ... and it's just an attractive design.

Cons: Nothing. I guess I need to write nothing 10 times because I absolutely love Evernote and would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Overall: Easy note storage. Easy collaboration. It helps me stay so incredibly organized!

Pros: The searchability of Evernote is incredible. Being able to rapidly search notes by the content in the note (even if that content is hand written scanned notes) is amazing.

The support and speed you get with a company as robust as Evernote, coupled with the low price tag makes Evernote the obvious solution for small business.

Cons: Formatting notes written from scratch is a bit cumbersome. Shortcuts that get you to "Heading 1", "Heading 2" or "Body" font types would be incredible.

Since Evernote is storing everything in the cloud, it is dependent upon each user's internet connection. If you get a high volume of notes being added and edited, users can get out of sync with one another which can create problems in a fast moving environment. That said, competing document storehouses that remove that problem are orders of magnitude more expensive and lack huge swaths of the features you get with Evernote.

Pros:

I like that I can create shortcuts for things that I want to be able to keep top of mind. So while I might have tasks or task lists (Notes) buried in larger project files (Notebooks), I can pull out the ones that need my immediate focus by creating shortcuts for them, and voila, all of the currently active items are all in one place, front and center--This allows me to easily keep track of what taaks I need focus on right now across numerous projects. It alleviates the overwhelm of feeling spread among so many things when I can see it all so clearly laid out in front of me. And I have the peace of mind knowing I am not missing a detail. It is all there in one place.

I can also use tags for any number of things. For example for the status (to-do, doing, done), so I can sort by these tags. Or by actions needed (phone calls, errands, research, read). This helps me to chunk my time based on action items. I am particularly excited about this, because I like to take care of phone calls via Bluetooth during long commutes. But so often, once I get behind the wheel, I am like, "Who did I need to call again?" Where is the phone number? It is particularly challenging when my phone call tasks are written down on task lists for different projects, instead of all in one place. Now that I am tagging them as phone calls, all I have to do is pull up the tag "phone calls" and all the calls I need to make are in one place.

Cons: Nothing so far! I am loving exploring all the features it offers!

Pros: I am a Mac user. I use Evernote every day to write notes or record some pictures by screenshot. The best thing I love about Evernote is its screenshot function on Mac. The built-in screenshot function on Mac is not so useful and fragile. I need to press a key combination to trigger the built-in screenshot. It is inconvenient. I can use Evernote screenshot function just by click the mouse and screenshot any size I like. These screenshots will store in a shortcut window of Evernote instead of on the desktop like the built-in screenshot.

Cons: There is a small problem that we need to be aware of. Since the screenshot will be stored in the shortcut window of Evernote every time. If we don't delete these screenshots manually, they will accumulate. After it accumulates a large number of the screenshot in the shortcut window, the trigger of screenshot function of Evernote will be very very slow.

Pros: I've been using Evernote for years and truly rely on it to remember everything for me. Their web clipper extension is incredibly powerful, allowing you to effectively save the interesting (to you) parts of the internet, and have it be searchable in the future. Along with the ability to search image in photos, PDFs, organize tags, todos create reminders and share when needed.... I would genuinely be lost without it. The phone apps are a powerful complement to the overall app too, seamlessly syncing and updating - letting you edit and add on the go. See an interesting article on your phone you want to save for reference? Share to Evernote and it will be there, searchable and ready.

Cons: I wish the desktop app had the same clean UI that the web app has. Certain notebooks that are full of PDF's will sometimes have trouble loading on the desktop app for Mac.

Pros: I like that it can travel across multiple devices. I think of things and take notes everywhere I go, and it is so convenient to be able to login anywhere and have access to the same information.

It's a great way to share information too. If someone texts me something, to get it to my desktop computer only requires me to copy it to evernote, and there it is!

Cons: I don't like that they restricted you to only 2 devices... It used to be more, then they changed it. I think the minimum should be at least 3.

Overall: I've been using evernote for some years now, and it has really simplified my process. I'm a graphic designer so when i'm in meetings, I used to take notes in a paper notebook. That was ok, until I was at another location at another time, and... forgot my notebook at home or switched purses. But no matter where I go, i'll always have my phone with me, so it's helpful to know that when jotting down notes on my phone, they are automatically at my fingertips when I'm back at my desktop.

Pros: I frequently make reference to Evernote as my digital brain. It's replaced my physical filing cabinet, allowing me to be completely digital. It's where I store anything I might need to reference later.

Cons: after a few months of use, I discovered that notebooks have a few limitations

1. A note is only able to exist in one Notebook at any time. It's single-to-many relationship. The problem comes when you want to include a note in a number of notebooks. That's a many-to-many relationship, and it isn't supported. You have to duplicate the note and hang a replica in each and every notebook. This ends up being more work than it's worth.

2. Notebooks might be stacked while not nested. Basically, and that means you is only able to create a hierarchy that's one level deep: a stack with several Notebooks. My goal is a lot more complex than that. I desired to be able to organize things in multiple levels.

Pros: You could rely on shared drives and always out of dates office suites to store and work collaboratively on documents if you wanted to, but I have no idea why you would. Evernote Business provides a slick, intuitive, team-focused interface for giving everyone access to the tools they need to do their job simultaneously. Evernote is a disruptor- it's mobile native, which virtually guarantees better performance than other tools that try to adapt the desktop environment to a smartphone. It just works. Every time. For storing documents, to managing relationships, to collaborating with teams, it performs so many necessary functions reliably.

Cons: Give it to me for free! As with other applications of this caliber, the only real negative is that they cost money to use.

Overall: I use Evernote every day to keep track of meeting notes, projects, and collaborations. I use it more than email.

Pros: I received Evernote Business subscriotion as a gift from the client a few years, but now keep using it for my team. I like the most Rich Text support that helps me to highlight useful part of my notes that I want to share with my team. With Evernote I put all my clients business cards in order by digitizing them. Recently we integrated Evernote with our Slack and when it comes to useful statements in some conversation I always clip these notes. That is easy thanks to Slack integration that can be activated from a channel by simple command.

Cons: No ability to install the app on own premices. Our new client is pretty sceptical to software that is not installed at their servers. However, after using Evernote for a month, they agreed us to keep using Business subscription.

Overall: At last our business documents got to order!

Pros: A colleague recommended this software to me that I should have to better organize my tasks at work, I was right! Evernote has among its benefits and pros the effective and accurate organization, of the daily tasks that I have to develop as well as reminders of visits, important dates, scheduling of meetings among other functions and the best of all this is that I can synchronize these data and take them wherever you want

Cons: I have used this program for more than a year and it really has changed my life in an amazing way, to such a level that I observe that each update brings with it much more useful innovations. I think this program does not have cons simply because it is always improving and innovating in the service they provide to their users.

Overall: Since I incorporated this software to my daily tasks, I could notice a deep increase in my productivity since I have a wide rhythm of work and many tasks to develop. Evernote allows me to organize each of my activities and to be able to plan based on temporalities in order that nothing escapes me.

Pros: Evernote allows users to take down notes in style. It has all the features you want to create an eye catchy yet simple note. I started using Evernote one year ago and since then I did not need any other note app on my laptop. There is no need to take a notebook to lectures or to a business meeting when I have Evernote with me. When I do my researches I have to make notes which have diagrams in it. Evernote makes all of this easy. It is a complete package.

Cons: I could not find a negative point in this software. The only concern I have is Evernote's notifications. I personally think that Evernote team can make it much more efficient.

Overall: I installed Evernote on my laptop one year ago. As someone always busy with academic stuff I find Evernote very useful. Most of the times when I am doing researches I suddenly want to take down notes and most of those notes include more than just plain text. Evernote provides all the features someone needs in order to create that one perfect. I found Evernote's picture uploading feature very useful. Also it allows you to create notebooks which contain multiple notes.

Pros: This application has two strengths that fascinate me the first is that besides being able to carry it on my smarphone I have the ability to open and see my notes on any computer that has internet, and the second is even better to create notes outside the traditional since they can be videos, voice notes, images until writing by hand in order to express my ideas in a more creative way and not lose anything of what I imagined or thought of.

Cons: It is the best applications that I can use to make notes and plasmas my ideas, one of the biggest advantages is that I have the ability to share my notes and show my ideas but it would be great to be able to communicate with those to whom I share my notes .

Pros: I am so glad I discovered Evernote. What I love most about Evernote is that it gives me the flexibility of taking and storing in the cloud. I can access my notes from any device(smart phone, desktop, browser) as long as I am able to remember the password for my account.

Another awesome thing I love about Evernote its free for small scale usage. You can upgrade from the free package if you need more space and more features.

I also thing that Evernote is also very secure. I store my account passwords in one note in ever note and I have never experienced any incidence of my accounts being hacked.

Cons: The only downside I have faced is when I sometimes get endless prompts to upgrade to the premium and business accounts. Other than that I love Evernote and am always recommending it to my friends.

Overall: Best cloud storage for notes. I Love Evernote!

Pros: Evernote does a great job of containing workflow within set parameters and making it easy to collaborate with peers in a rapid-fire style in order to get ideas on paper and push the design process along. Research between multiple people is very easy to conduct via Evernote, where anyone can suggest ideas, share screenshots, or share notes instantly to everyone in the group. Evernote Business is an incredibly secure platform to share information so security compliance is met as well. Overall, Evernote Business makes it incredibly easy for teams to share information and get a jump start on new projects instantly.

Cons: I don't really need a social media-esque newsfeed when I'm working with DMS. I generally feel as if Evernote Business is geared towards developing initial drafts of documents rather than working on finalized revisions, but that's likely not what Evernote is intended for. It does a great job at what it's intended for.

Overall: We used Evernote Business to get a new project going at work between people who worked overseas and had never met in person. Evernote Business made it incredibly easy to bounce ideas back and forth and reach an agreement on where to take the project, all in a matter of hours.

Pros: Evernote makes it easy to take notes anywhere, anytime, on any device. Whether sitting in a meeting with my mobile device or at home with a laptop, I can quickly and easily create a new note and assemble thoughts and ideas around specific topics. You can even drag and drop images and add them to your notes as well. Evernote also allows you the ability to create separate notebook categories, making it easy to organize your notes according to different project areas for example. Lastly, the ability to add tags to notes makes them easy to search and locate at a later date.

Cons: The ability to format text is somewhat limited, making it a frustrating experience to add simple things like bulleted lists. In order to get to those tools, you must use the application menus at the top of the screen instead of quickly selecting a button to add bullets via the editor area. Overall, the user interface is good but could likely do with a refresh as it hasn't changes much over the last few years.

Overall: As a whole, the software has helped me stay more organized in what can sometimes be a chaotic work environment. Use of the free version is incredibly helpful to those looking to explore the features and functionality before taking the plunge to move to the business version.

Pros: I love Evernote. It feels as intuitive as using actual paper in that you can organize things by notebook, create bullet point lists, even draw things! And you can also add favorites - a not so papery feature that is a life saver. I use Evernote both for work and personal needs. I also love being able to share as on a business side, you can share notes with co-workers and have them contribute, and on a personal level you can do things like share grocery lists with your partner. It's really amazing. Plus, it works flawlessly on mobile and PC.

Cons: My one gripe is that the desktop version feels a bit cramped compared to the web browser version. Also, I find it a bit odd that you can no longer download the software onto your pc, instead it's an app in the windows web store.

Overall: Overall, a fantastic piece of software/app/site that has been a lifesaver.

Pros: It's on every device. The updates keep improving the app. Everything I want to have access to regarding info is here. I store PDF's, eBooks, and more. When I need to have very specific things happen, I can use the voice notes to tell my assistant exactly what I want and it's right in the note for reference. When I measured the office I included pictures to tell the story. I literally cannot live without Evernote at this point. It's also my productivity app, I use it for journalling, family genealogical research, etc. Everything hits my Evernote account.

Cons: Sometimes navigating it can be tricky if you don't know exactly how. I've tried notebooks, tagging, etc within the app and the con is having to figure out which system works for you. I also have occasional issues with the app recording voice notes but that's not a deal breaker.

Pros: If Evernote is good because it helps you organize your tasks, Evernote Business is wonderful because it helps you organize the tasks of your entire department; I love that you can share a complete notebook with a work team very falcilmete, you only need the e-mail and the type of permission that you will give. The tables of content inside the notebooks is wonderful because it allows you to see all the notes and what they are about. Also, the fact that you can insert in the notes photos, check, links to other pages and other things. The reminders are excellent to take the cases to the day.

Cons: I do not like that you can confuse a little between your notes and the notes of the organization, that I do not like. I also do not like that I have to know who is a premium user.

Overall: Keeping up with all the cases of the organization is easy with Evernote Business since it helps you assign responsibilities and know how much progress has been made in each one. You can keep up to date with all the details of all cases in real time from your smart phone.

Pros: Simplicity: when you're at the top level, you just dump material in. It's easy, fast, and durable.

Flexibility: Runs on any platform you can think of. Scans your documents for retrieval and makes the worst searches easy

Cons: Complexity: I'm always fairly sure that there would be sooo much more I could do with Evernote if I really understood it all. The basic uses I have for it are an essential but I feel like a kid playing with a quantum computer.

Communications: Since I'm a solo operator and seldom collaborate, I don't use the extensive tools except when I do my taxes. (Did I mention that it's Brilliant for keeping all tax notes and deductions in a single place?)

Overall: Information storage for Research, Taxes, Business Operations, Contracts, Notes, Old Writing.

Beautiful retrieval of this information in the Original Form without the strange and mysterious gaps I find in far too many similar programs

Pros: *Functionality Evernote remembers, evernote cares, evernote knows. And what is more important this App not only makes old routine of working through papers easier. It also allows insights, sharing, customizing, flexibility and painless integrations. *UI No doubt, evernote has one of the best designer teams out there. It's simple, it's original, distinguishable, intuitive. And it's full of features. *Ideology and approach Evernote helps make your life a bit easier. You have a document that you might need a copy of ? - Scan it and put on evernote. You have found a great piece of knowledge? - copy it to a notebook in evernote. Nothing is lost and available at any time.

Cons: 1. The app can be faster. Of course, the UI makes it easy, but still there are ways for improvements. 2. Desktop app - it's not standing out for the app itself. For me it does not make sense. Yes, it has all the functionality and is comfortable. But Evernote has to take care of it's desktop. 3. More tools with structuring in evernote. Yes, notes and notebooks are great at first. And the search in evernote is nice. But lacks some advanced task abilities and layering of the notes.

Pros: Evernote is great for storing meeting notes, random files, off-hand thoughts, notes to self, and everything else that you don't know where it belongs. Different notebooks keep the notes generally organized. Each notebook is like a big bucket-inside it, the notes just swirl around. No need for an elaborate hierarchical system. "Date created" is my typical order. I'm very happy with Evernote's ability to help keep my digital life organized.

Cons: Evernote's search function often drags up a multitude of unrelated material instead of the one file I want. It's especially bad if I'm searching for a sentence, but don't remember it exactly enough to enclose it in quotation marks. Heaven help if the search query includes common words like "the" or "a". Often I just scroll back through the notes instead of going to the trouble of searching.

Pros: Evernote has allowed me to have key ideas, reference information and project support material available to me whenever I need it. I use it for both business and personal information management and I have always been able to find key concepts that I need in a timely manner. Worth the investment and the business option allows small teams to work together and collaborate well.

Cons: The interface does differ across operating systems and devices and this is to be expected. Evernote have been aware of this and have worked actively over the last year or so to address this issue with some success. The web interface while simpler does tend to hide some things I prefer from the old web interface and to Evernote's credit they allow you to switch between the 2 easily.

Overall: Literally, the information I need at my fingertips. Also, OCR within scanned images and PDF's are awesome.

Pros: Get up and running in minutes. Many options for accessing...ie your mobile device, your computer, the cloud, whether Mac or Windows. Easy to add in a new note, or take a picture to include, or even use the audio portion. I started using this for work and then expanded to include personal notes.

Cons: Unless you are a folder organization genius...meaning you intuitively know how to organize...your notes can add up quickly and then you get overwhelmed. You can organize via notebooks or notes themselves, but for those of us who have trouble organizing already...it can get out of hand quickly. Would recommend Evernote coming up with short tutorials on how people organize their notes.

Overall: Easy way to capture thoughts and know, since they are on the cloud, that you can access them through your apps anywhere. Would rather have things on Evernote, than on my laptop to clear up space.

Pros: - You can host files and photos by sending the content in an email to the service.

- Simultaneous search with Google. The search is synchronized with the content that hosts your account. You can also extract pieces of information from any site. For this you need the Webclipper extension that you can install from here.

- You do not use paper. It happens that we can get to accumulate too many documents that we could have saved in its digital version with Evernote. It is economical and helps the environment.

- Create simple links with the information you will see later. You can save the most important thing from the web or create a table of contents in a note.

Cons: - The free version is limited to all the functions we can perform

- Sometimes the synchronization of the files fails when we have old computers

Overall: It's the easy and effective way to remember everything from lifelong memories and important information to daily reminders and to-do lists. Everything you save in your Evernote account is automatically synchronized across all your devices, making it easy to capture, browse, search and edit your notes anywhere you have Evernote installed, including smartphones, tablets, computers and the Web.

Pros: Easy to use, clips to Evernote and clearly read are awesome features.

Cons: I am forced to upgrade if I want to use three devices at the same time, which was not like that before. I cannot encrypt figures between texts, which makes it weird.

Overall: Some features of Evernote is great including "clip to Evernote" and "clearly read". However, there are some parts that I don't feel so satisfied with this software.

First, I can only encrypt texts but not figures. Sometimes I use Evernote to keep a journal and I don't want others to read it, and some journals contain pictures. However, when I try to encrypt the content, the pictures are still there, making it really weird.

Second, I am used to using Evernote on my cell phone, pc and ipad for a very long time but recently Evernote tell me that I can only keep two devices otherwise I have to upgrade. I don't want to upgrade only because of I need to used one more device.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make the notes arranged according to the data created not the date modified. Otherwise they are not easy to arrange.

Comments: 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

Recommendations to other buyers: 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.

Pros: I find it very useful to control how many devices you have linked to the application is a very positive option, you can access your notes without internet connection and that is really great because it quickly synchronizes the information to always have it available on your linked devices, I like that your main task of creating lists is so well designed and accomplished and it is very useful to establish the activities of the workday efficiently and without major problems.

Cons: The most complete options are only available in the premium version and businesses that require a high cost, the search engine must improve in order to precise searches more dynamically and efficiently, the available tools should allow using the drag and drop more frequently to be flexible and dynamic.

Overall: When you start to use the tools you will notice great ease of use and it is very useful but then you will need to expand the available options and in that case you should access the paid versions and that may generate some discomfort.

Pros: Evernote's gives our company the ability to collaborate at every level. Whether using a smartphone, a tablet, or a computer, Evernote's allows access everywhere, even offline with the ability to save work. Sharing outside the company is easy and secure. The search features here are second to none, even allowing searches for words within images. Evernote makes our work more manageable and makes us more efficient. Our company relies heavily on Outlook and Evernote directly connects with Outlook. This feature alone, for us, is worth paying for.

Cons: The less tech-savvy among us may have a greater learning curve due to the sheer amount of features Evernote Business offers. There are several features we do not have a need for. This is a common "con" of powerful software.

Overall: The ability to link email to Evernote has greatly reduced our reliance on email. Several within our company travel regularly and having Evernote as our epicenter, our information hub, gives us full access whenever and wherever we need it.

Pros: I like Evernote because it helps me write quick notes which are stored in the cloud. I can access the notes from anywhere with any device as long as I can remember my login details.

Another good thing about Evernote is that they offer a free version of the software, meaning you don't have to pay a dime to use it. So far, I am on the free plan.

Another thing I like about Evernote is that you can share the notes with someone via email.

Another very handy feature I like about Evernote is that it has a functional search functionality. If you happen to forget the title of your note, the search function got you covered.

Cons: Something annoying about Evernote is that the free versions has some limitations on some devices. For example the android version of the application doesn't work on my phone. Every time I try to access my notes, I am blocked by prompts to upgrade to the premium version. Since I am using the free version of the app, only use it on my desktop.

Overall: Evernote has really helped me stay more organized by saving my notes in the cloud. Since Evernote, I don't use physical notebooks anymore. I highly recommend Evernote for note taking.

Comments: I've not had to use the customer service but there are lots of tutorials and blogs etc to give you new ideas on how to use it.

Pros: I use Evernote for everything. It has my whole life on it. I love the fact that I can search text in images and pdfs and I don't have to think about filing as put things into it as it is easy to find stuff by just searching a key word. I like to think I use tech in meetings but I just don't. I always end up writing notes. The beauty of Evernote is that I can scan the note in with my phone and the text is searcheable. It's pretty miraculous actually. I'm a lecturer and I have supervision tutorials where I open up evernote and create a note that I type directly into. I also write on a white board by hand and when I export that as a pdf, I can attach it to the evernote note and at the end I share the note by email with the student. I always have a full record of all my tutorials and can bring up a previous session's note to see if they have made progress. Honestly - it's brilliant.

Cons: I actually struggle to think of any negatives. I think the price is fine. I guess it's always a little shock when it comes out the bank on an annual basis but that's the best way of doing it.

Pros: This software thrives on mobile platforms allowing you to take notes quickly in a large number of formats and methods. You can organize these notes into team notebooks, personal notebooks or shared notebooks. They can include pictures, handwriting, pictures and files. They have clients available for the major mobile os's and Windows as well as Mac. For Linux there is the open source nix note client or the web client available. Evernote has enabled our team to collaborate in new ways and the chat features around notes are nice for sharing ideas. This is great system for mobile collaboration.

Cons: Lack of a official Linux client is disappointing but nix note works well. It is not a full office suite in it's editing capabilities.

Overall: A great solution for taking quick notes especially on mobile environment.

Pros: I love that it is easy to use. I am not the most computer literate at times and I liked that using the Evernote Business is easy to use. I love to keep my notes on there about blogging ideas, I have photos on there that I can transfer to my blog. I keep a medication list in the notes, so that when I end up in the ER (again) I can tell them exactly what I take.

I also have used it when I needed to transfer something from Word, over to an email. My evernote is my 'back-up' in case things go sideways.

Cons: So far I have not had any problems using Evernote Business. Some people had problems using version 8, they said it was slow. But, for some reason, I did not have those same issues.

Overall: It keeps me from loosing progress when I blog, I use it as a back up to store information that I need. I seriously love Evernote!

Pros: Search Functionality! The ability to search on Evernote is what makes this one of the best software to use. Our organization uses it as our Knowledge Management Software and it has proved to be pretty helpful. Our organization is very external facing and a lot of information goes out as well as comes in. Evernote has given us a space where articles, meeting notes, presentations and other documents can be stored. The search features, along with the tags, make it easy for us to use and find the information we need. It has streamlined our sharing of information and made it easier for us to all get on the same page as an org.

Cons: I don't know that there are many cons to this software. The only thing that proves to be a challenge is sometimes sharing information directly with other colleagues. Often times we have to check in with each other to see if we received the information sent via the platform. I know that some of it is operator error, but I think there are some ways that this can be improved with software fixes.

Overall: Overall I would recommend this product to anyone who is interested in using this as a storehouse for all kinds of media and information.

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: - Collaborative features could still be a bit stronger

- Not a Dropbox replacement, this is more a matter of fact rather than a criticism of the product. Just don't go into it thinking it'll replace Dropbox/Box and you'll be fine.

Overall: Productivity, organization, project management

Pros: Cross-platform support. I love having the ability to take notes on one device and pick up where I left off from another. This is especially useful if I am taking notes on a tablet or phone during an impromptu meeting and need to clean them up on my laptop later. The features for setting up and organizing notes and notebooks are also very helpful and allow me to keep my notes well organized and properly labeled.

Cons: The text editing and formatting options are limited and navigating the features available feels a bit clumsy at times. Limits on the number of free devices prompted me to move to a subscription of the premium version.

Overall: I was introduced to Evernote several years ago when adopting a newer style of organizing notes and tasks and haven't looked back. It is a decent value for the price and gets the job done.

Pros: This is a simple to use, yet with very powerful features that are not that straightforward. If managed correctly it can be your go-to note taking app for your personal and business life.

Cons: Since I've been an early user of Evernote, today, I find it bloated and slow (to start). There might be too much functionality running in the back, which makes it a bit slow. This has been a common complaint of many users and the reason some have even migrated to other apps

Overall: I use it thoroughly to plan meetings, write down ideas and at some point have even used it as a journal. As a meeting note taking app, i find it a bit basic. Although there are many amazing templates out there, if I don't prepare on time, I will not have the desired format and at the end of the meeting I'd have to re-write and order in another platform such as google doc (where templates are very easy to setup).
