Editors' review

Evernote includes a special blend of abundant features, a very cool layout, and near-limitless note variety. There's a reason everyone seems to sing its praises. It is a phenomenal productivity tool, no matter what you use it for.

This app saves notes along with anything you find on the Web, so you can read it later. It syncs to your online account, so you will have to sign up before you can get started. It offers unlimited storage, but your uploads can't exceed 60MB per month. That may not sound like a lot, but the app has all sorts of tricks in place to keep your storage count low. For example, Evernote can save Web sites as text lists and let you view them offline. If you take pictures in the app, you can tag them, share them with friends, or organize them to match your lists. The app doesn't offer any widgets by default, but you can download some to make it easier to get to your notes. All of your notes are presented in a clean layout, and even if the standard white-on-white style doesn't wow you, it does make the app really light on RAM.

Evernote gives you more ways than you can count to organize, share, and take notes. Since it syncs to a just-as-useful Web version, your notes can follow you wherever you want them to. There's really no better way to kick start your paperless lifestyle than with this app.

    "Not the best out there, could be faster"

    January 11, 2013   |   By AlexMcDuffMiller

    Version: Evernote 3.3.1

    Pros

    Ability to sync to the web easily so you can edit your lists/notes from your phone or computer is very handy.

    Cons

    The fact that when you're in the phone setting you have to open the app, eventually navigate to your note, and then hit the 'edit' button. I am a fan of the s-note app for samsung beacuse as soon as you take the stylus out a note pops up.

    If it was easier to get to editing the list (Say your writing down what someone else is saying in real time) it would be perfect

    Summary

    I hope they eventually make it easier to quickly jot down notes.

    "One of the best apps out there"

    December 19, 2011   |   By StraitSaltsMan

    Version: Evernote 3.3.1

    Pros

    Instantly syncs your data across all platforms, multi-functional, multi-purpose, notes anywhere, anytime, keeps you organized, clean interface, incredibly easy to manage and navigate.

    Cons

    Not much I can say. It works as advertised.

    Summary

    Evernote is a truly great note-taking app that helps you keep your thoughts and daily activities organized. Any thought that pops up in my head, I automatically record it in Evernote. And poof! there it is...on my phone, on my computer, and in my calendar. It is able to sync your data just like that! This app works well across all platforms. The interface is simple and very easy to navigate. It is definitely one of the apps that helps make your life a little easier.

    "A Brilliant Tool That Will Do Almost Everything"

    July 13, 2011   |   By cyrillic

    Version: Evernote for Android 3.0.3

    Pros

    * Taking notes, pictures, audio, and sync it with calender
    * Instant sync of your data with Evernote server
    * Easy navigation and management
    * Unique Evernote email
    * Notes on the go
    * Multi Platform functionality sharing (Android -Mac - Windows)

    Cons

    * 60 MB storage only for free users
    * No lifetime licence purchase, pro users will be billed monthly or annually

    Summary

    Evernote is absolutely a brilliant application, last week I used it for one of the conferences I had to attend, and it really impressed a lot of attendees. I was using a tablet (HTC Flyer) with pen feature, so while I was scribbling notes I could take pictures, which will automatically imbedded with the notes and record audio at the same time. Either scribble or typing, Evernote is one of the easiest manageable applications, so with minimal keystrokes or touch you can navigate Evernote and back up everything fast.
    Categories
    You can create categories of different notebooks and organize it, for example you can create John's Note Book, Research, Business etc. Evernote also let you move notes between different notebook categories or labels.
    Sync Features
    When I came back from one of the conferences, and for the first time I signed into Evernote on the web, using my gmail account which was part of the android setup, and I was so surprised to see every data, audio, clips, pictures - every single scribble was synced with the Evernote account. So I can access it anywhere without my tablet. Then I downloaded Evernote for windows, it's an application with which you can again create notes which will again sync with Evernote account, phones, tablet etc. This sync feature is so brilliant and fast that, say, you can work on a project at home (laptop), and continue working the same thing on the train (tablet), and continue working it at the University or the office (PC) without creating three files!
    Cross and Multi Platform compatibility
    That's right, you can use all platforms for a single file, you can create a file in Andoid OS, and open that file elsewhere may be in Windows OS, and vice versa.
    Email address
    For every users Evernote create an email address username @ evernote.com, I don't know if it's a pro or con, but if you are not interested you can ignore it.
    Pro and Free version
    If you are going pro version, you have to pay either monthly or annually for One Gigabyte storage, free users will get only 60 MB. There is no one time or lifetime license purchase, you have to pay either monthly or annually. But for me 60 MB is enough, so for most users I guess, but if you are adding or embedding a lot of media files, then I guess pro version is best for you.

    Language Support
    Evernote comes in many languages - Czech, Danish, German, English for both US and UK, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese for Brazil and Portuguese for Portugal, Russian, Serbian (Latin and Cyrillic), Swedish, Chinese (both simplified and traditional)
    Additional Tools
    Evernote tools have additional features like creating hyperlinks for the web, embedding PDF files, locating source, images etc., adding tags, saving searches and I am still exploring it :) Today I received info that Evernote is also adding Presentation slides and other features. Well, in short this is a great time saver and making the life easier.
    Remember
    Don't forget to download Evernote for Windows, Mac and Mobile devices, so you don't have to login every time you are connected.

    "sounds good but...."

    July 12, 2011   |   By test123123123

    Version: Evernote for Android 3.0.3

    Pros

    haven't tried it yet

    Cons

    permissions?

    Summary

    When installing it wants access to: "Your personal information - Read contact data." Why and why would I want any app to do this? Correct me if I'm wrong but I assume this means the people at Evernote can see or download my contacts? I never give anyone access to contacts on my PC and my smartphone is no different. Shouldn't this at least be optional?

    "Easy to use"

    February 05, 2011   |   By archae0

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Syncs notes with desktop
    Easy to use
    Clean interface

    Cons

    No real cons. It does what it promises

    Summary

    Evernote is easy to use and set up. Just install on your smartphone and on your desktop or laptop to be able to sync notes back and forth. I use this for shopping lists and reminders that I want to keep handy. No matter which device I'm using when I create or edit a note, it's always available on the device I'm using when I need to refer to the note. Very handy and highly recommended
