Evernote App Review

It’s is an application used to take notes, record voice notes, and store various other types of notes.
The app is available for various platforms, including the web, iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, and Blackberry.
Evernote was created by the software company Evernote Corporation and is currently headquartered in Redwood City, California. The name “Evernote” is a portmanteau of the words “ever” and “note.”
The Evernote app is divided into four different notebooks:
- Inbox: Anything that you put in here will appear on your Evernote home screen for immediate viewing
- Everything: All of your notes, recordings, and clippings
- Camera: All of your photos

Each notebook is shown as a list, with the newest note on top.
There are three different types of notes:

Users don't like:

- Evernote FAQ
How to import content into Evernote
You can import (restore) previously exported notes and notebooks into Evernote using one of our desktop applications. The imported notes will automatically be placed in a new notebook titled “Import [file_name]” (Mac) or “Imported notes” (Windows). From there, you can move or copy them to any notebook of your choice.
How to view images in the image gallery
When you have multiple photos, screenshots, or scans in a note, easily view them by launching the image gallery.
Double-click on an image, which launches the image gallery. You can then scroll side to side to jump from image to image, without having to scroll through your note.
How to organize notes into different notebooks
Notebooks are the most common way of organizing notes in Evernote and are commonly used to separate notes by category, location or purpose. For example, you might create one notebook called ‘Work Notes’ and one called ‘Personal Notes’ to keep these types of notes separate and easier to find.
What can you do with notebooks?
Organize notes into notebooks so you can browse, search, and share similar notes easily, for example, you may create a notebook for:
- Work projects
- Travel planning
- Creative projects
- Company resources

iOS (iPhone, iPad):
I use it multiple times a day to set reminders and ti do lists. Strongly recommended.
I use Evernote like a part of my own brain. I often jot down quick note or reminder just to be sure I don’t forget. Then at end of day and beginning of next day I review latest notes and organize or delete as appropriate. If I awake with dream or other idea, I quickly enter Evernote typed, handwritten, or verbal for reference when awake.
I probably use a fraction of the features Evernote offers, but I really appreciate what it does for me. I note down information that I might want to retrieve in the future. Pre-Evernote, I would have made those notes on paper, and good luck finding a note when I needed it. With Evernote the notes are all in one place and searchable, both on my phone and my computer.
Absolutely mind-blowing. Don’t think I have ever loved an app this much. I still use the free version but will be upgrading to premium in the near future. With the free version though, you still get a ton of value from this app. Notes sync on devices in mere seconds. It has dark theme, which is great.
Great application, convenient saving and searching for notes in the archive order. It grows me every day. It would be nice if there were more settings. For example, make the font any size. Or it would be cool to add the ability to draw on a notebook, but not necessarily.
