Pros

I love that Evernote syncs to my phone, computer, and tablet. No more fears about losing my notes right before a test! I also enjoy the ability to upload other photos, files, etc into the notes. Makes for a much more visual/dynamic experience.

Cons

I’m great with this program now but there was a learning curve for me! It was almost too sophisticated and at first I didn’t know how to best utilitize it.

It's a good program to start with to keep you virtually organized

Pros

I've been using Evernote for a couple of years now. It's still my go-to for my notes in one place. I like that you can create different notebooks in order to keep your notes organized. I also like that you can include images to your notes to make your notes come to life! It's great that you can access it from either your mobile or desktop.

Cons

I'm also trying out Notion, that's similar to Evernote that has some new features that I believe Evernote can add to their program. There's a feature that allows you to save all your images with a button in Evernote, but I can't seem to turn it off, so I have to do it manually, so that's not fun. I'm sure that they can make some improvements.

I love this app, I still use it since it can sync with my mobile phone and computer. Very handy when needed.

Pros

Very handy and mobile to use. I used it while attending meetings and private calls with clients. It has many functions and uses that can be used for planning efforts and note taking.

Cons

Cost money, but may be worth the investment. Some issues in bug fixes. There is not really much to say bad about this app.

Pros

Ability to search hand-written notes. Database of notes over multiple years and projects. Mixed platform for typed notes and notes recorded by photograph.

Cons

Very poor interfacing with other programs. I need the ability to take things in and out of Evernote easily and the program just doesn't accommodate that. If it would work better with the other programs I use on a daily basis, I would find it more helpful.

Evernote is an effective note taking and info sharing tool. I have used both free and paid versions and the value of being able to take your notes on various devices and share with multiple individuals/groups of people is really valuable

Pros

I have been using it since last 4 years. In between, I used a few other notes taking apps too; and ended up using Evernote regularly. It's a seamless integration of text, audio, video, and image into notes. Good formatting options and search features make it even great to use daily.

Cons

Predefined formatted sets for Headings (which could be a need for the writers) are not there. You need to do it manually by applying different size of fonts. This can't be considered into cons, but still, for writers, this should be there.

Taking notes using various method and helpful tools

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Customer Support
N/A
Pros

I use Evernote to take down important details and information on certain projects/tasks that I am working on. I can easily organize my notes and research with this application. If I want to add pictures and files that would help me with my tasks, I can categorize my notes by topic or subject. What I like about Evernote is that I can use the voice recording instead of taking notes by typing. Then attach the voice memo as an additional information on that topic too which is great! All in one place using various method of collecting information. Web Clipper is also the best. Its amazing that I can browse websites and simply use web clipper to clip pages that would help my research which is much more convenient than going back and finding the site again. Everything in one place!

Cons

For cloud storage, others might choose One Note because it's linked to work emails and Microsoft applications that are always used at work.For Microsoft users, they can find One Note available or an application being suggested.But if they would compare, Evernote has unique features that can't be found in other note taking application. And they all function well and helpful.

Like I said, I am a new user and am still learning this software. So far it's been very helpful in allowing us to work from separate offices and communicate receipts and other items without having to send an email or pick up the phone.

Pros

I am a new user and am not familiar with all the "ins and outs" of Evernote but so far it has been easy to use and very helpful to my job.

Cons

I may be missing something but I am finding it a bit challenging to find receipts that have been scanned in by another user in our company. Like I said, I am a new user and am still learning though.

Evernote is a great way to organize my notes. I love that whole notebooks or notes can be shared. Easy way to share related documents and recordings as well.

A couple years ago, Evernote put a limit on how many devices one can use the app on without having to pay. If you want to stick with the free version like me, you can only use Evernote on two devices. Workable, but a little inconvenient.

Pros

Evernote is very powerful in the sense that it allows you to centralize all your company's informations / data in one place. You just don't have to think about it : put it in evernote and you'll be able to get it back, wherever you are. The search is very powerful (it can "read" within files AND also within pictures/images). The Spaces are also nice to keep everything tidy and easily remember where you put your stuff.

Cons

The interface is pretty hard to understand on PCs whereas it's way better on Mac. The PC app can be pretty slow at times as the database is managed in a weird way by the program. The learning curve is pretty slow since it takes time for users to understand that Evernote is NOT just like Microsoft Word or whatever (which people often think when they see the interface for the first time). That is because it's not "natural", to drag and drop files / images / powerpoints and texts in the same thing (a note).

I could not find differences big enough to convince me to using it on a daily basis - I am collecting content and doing notes on so many different platforms, that integrating it into one place might be handy, but was always too much effort, which made Evernote for me just another place for the same need. I did not find any killer-feature that would change this view dramatically.
