Overall Satisfaction with Evernote

Evernote is a fantastic resource to save and organize notes and smaller pieces of information. When Evernote first started it the ubiquity of smart devices and syncing was a HUGE advantage. As opposed to saving information in email drafts so it could be seen on the go, you could save it in Evernote! Best of all it would be there at your desk (computer) and on the go (iPhone/smartphone).

Evernote has made strides including its own app, being able to save other file types, and most recently they have added templates.

It would be hard for me to write complex reports and make spreadsheets and tables in Evernote - those require extensive formatting, will be viewed by others as word files, etc. Formatting has long been an area where Evernote lagged, but that is improving with templates.

While it started out as a notetaking app, now that we have smartphones and can manage other file types on the go, Evernote has added that capability to embed and save a picture or PDF to a note file. The search and folder/tagging function makes keeping Evernote content organized easier.
  • Syncing. Your notes and content update well across devices but will require internet connectivity.
  • Organization of notes via search, tagging, even location, time stamps, and folders is incredibly helpful.
  • Formatting was a complaint of mine for a long time. It is not as robust as Microsoft Word, but it is improving.
  • The ability to do simple calculations. Say you have a list of ten items and want to sum the cost - that cannot be done in Evernote automatically.
  • Staying organized. In today's day and age, it is easy to forget things. If something is useful or you want to be able to recall it later, you can save it in Evernote. With its search function and large storage capacity, it makes it terrific for recall.
Evernote is more robust for adding other content besides checklists, but it has that feature as well.
Evernote is not the best for sharing content among team members in a timely fashion the way that many organizations do with email. Slack can be used for even faster results and a streamlined conversation.
