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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.
