Editors' Review


The Windows PC version of Evernote is a powerful and quick tool that allows you to create, update, and sync notes and clips from your desktop, and it can sync to a cloud account from any device imaginable. With a range of formatting, organization, and upgrade options, this free tool is a must for any serious PC user.


Sleek and customizable organization tools: The Evernote interface has been duplicated hundreds of times, but still remains one of the most streamlined and easy to utilize on the market. With multiple display options, favorites bars, and shortcuts, combined with notebook organization, tagging, and folder search, it's effective for small and large accounts, alike.

Extremely fast and lightweight in the background: Evernote doesn't eat a lot of resources in the background. It syncs frequently enough to capture everything you write, but not so often to slow down your machine; and with shortcut keys, it's fast and easy to create new notes.


Formatting options can be limited: In the free tool, the formatting options can be limited, and if you copy/paste from a more robust tool like Word, there can be issues with bullets and fonts. It's a small issue if you always paste to text, and other options like checkboxes and templates more than make up for it.

Load times can slow because of syncing: When first booting Evernote, it can slow down slightly. If you prefer not to leave it open in the background due to privacy, this can be frustrating as you wait for it to open each time. Again, it's a very small issue that only affects those who frequently open and close the software.

Bottom Line

The cons, however, are almost nitpicks for a piece of software that should be on any serious PC desktop. It's a fantastic productivity tool, whether you are organizing recipes, clipping notes from websites, or outlining notes for your next conference call -- and it's free.

"EverNote is overrated"

June 14, 2016  |  By Holmes1245

 |  Version: Evernote


You can save notes, tag and sort with ease. Shortcuts allow me to save relevant "active" notes that I refer to all the time for easy access. When I change fonts, the fonts change for all my notes, which I like. Reminders for notes allow me to be productive on notes and respond to them on the day I select.


Evernote on Windows is terrible. It always freezes constantly on me, making it slow and clunky compared to OneNote which is smooth and works like a native app. Evernote never has. Evernote needs an extended tier notebook system for those who want at least one more tier to the notebook organization. I can't create a Table of Contents for one single note in Evernote like I can in OneNote so my notes in Evernote can't be too long. The reminders in Evernote don't stay or repeat, thus, if I miss a reminder and don't see it, I miss it altogether. Also, for some reason, the developers think that users what to see all white. In the new version 6, Too much white space.


I'm guessing the experience using EverNote is much improved on the Apple system which I think is EverNote's main platform. For me, as a Windows user, Evernote on Windows feels like it has always been developed by a novice who doesn't understand the Windows operating system. Why can Microsoft create a note program that works smooth on their own system but Evernote, for some unknown reason, can't. I end up frustrated and questioning why the developers make the decisions they do. I would still recommend EverNote if you don't have anything else but it's not the best. It's good for clipping and saving those clippings but I don't take it as a serious note-taking app.

"Good product with billing glitch, poor customer service"

November 20, 2015

 |  Version: Evernote


I have used Evernote for several years and loved it. It is extremely simple to store varying formats in well organized notes. I have not used web clipper; I copy and paste.


Evernote has a chronic payment processing glitch. People have been sporadically struck by the glitch for over a year; it happened to me twice. It results in premium accounts cancelled. Without a premium account there is virtually no customer service. With it one can only chat during business hours. One is expected to post an email ticket which is then ignored, post the ticket number on their forum, AND tweet it through Twitter, which is extremely bizarre. I got the problem fixed most recently by complaining to the Better Business Bureau.


Evernote is just exactly as useful as it is dependable and reliable. If someone is doing academic or business work on Evernote and loses access to it until Evernote deigns to pay attention to an account issue through its weird and convoluted modes of reaching customer service, that user is screwed. I am looking at other products. Evernote makes billions of dollars a year off of its millions of customers, and if it wants to remain number one it needs telephone customer support. Without it, this isn't a very useful product.
