Overall Satisfaction

  • Supports consolidation and version history of notes and ideas.
  • Supports cross-platform note keeping and updating - limits the excuses for not doing things right the first time.
  • It can be a little unwieldy if you try to over architect it. Keeping it simple seems to work the best.
  • They tout the image-to-text feature a lot, but I haven't had much success with it.
  • I've had a few syncing issues if I've been using two apps at the same time (looking at the desktop application at the same time I have the iPhone app open)
  • No need to own/install a bunch of expensive apps to keep everyone in sync.
Using Evernote is so ingrained in my process now, I can't imagine not using it any more.

Product Usage

  • Keeping meeting notes, to-do items, and general ideas in one place,
  • Some of the add-ons include Hello! (which I haven't used with much success, but serves as an integrated option for recording people you meet).
  • Automatic change tracking on notes and documents.
  • Ability to collate notes into notebooks based on purpose (in addition to tagging)

Evaluation and Selection

Sticky notes, MS Notepad, Delicious
I've definitely tried other solutions, but aside from DropBox (which is a little heavier of an application), I haven't been able to find anything I like as much as Evernote.


Absolutely - it's very intuitive and just works itself into the process. It's also very easy to be iterative in setting it up.


I've never had to talk to support, so I can't say.
