The Beautiful New Evernote for iOS 7

The new iOS 7 is exactly the sort of thing that makes being an app developer so thrilling. We’ve spent months getting to know every minute detail, design and interaction of the new operating system. The experience has been eye-opening, inspiring and freeing. IOS 7 is so new that it allowed us to let go, restart and build in a way that we haven’t been able to do in years. The result: a completely, unbelievably, unexpectedly new Evernote.

Clean and Green

For iOS 7, we started paring away everything that felt unnecessary. What we ended up with was an interface that was both beautiful and exceedingly functional.

The Home Screen
This is the smartest and most space-efficient home screen we’ve ever had. By eliminating the tabs and shadows of our previous versions, we’re able to show you everything on one screen: Personal and Business notes, notebooks, and tags, plus Shortcuts and Announcements!

ios_home

In the Notes section, we display your two most recent notes to let you quickly jump back to them. The same is true for Evernote Business notes, Tags and Notebooks sections. To save even more space, the home screen dynamically shows or removes sections that you don’t need. For example, if you have no tags, then you won’t see a tag section. It’s these little touches that make the app easier to navigate for new and existing users alike.

Quicknote Features
The new Evernote is all about speed. At the bottom of the home screen you’ll find a new set of Quicknote features. Here you can quickly start a New Note, snap a photo, create a Reminder, and make a task list. With the Quicknote Bar, you can launch the app and start jotting your note with one tap.

We also implemented a much-requested feature: as soon as the note editor opens, the cursor moves into the note body with the keyboard in view. No extra taps required to get your idea down.

Image and PDF Markup

We’ve been looking forward to this one for a while. The amazingly fast markup and annotation functionality of our Skitch app is now part of Evernote, and it too got a complete redesign. Now you can overlay shapes, arrows or text onto any image in your notes. Tap on the image, then tap on the markup icon to bring your new set of markup tools. The tools and colors pop out, letting you slide your thumb to choose what you need.

Premium feature: PDF Markup
If you’re an Evernote Premium user, then you can also mark up any attached PDFs that you have in your account. When you’re reading a PDF in Evernote and you see something that you want to draw attention to, tap the markup icon and the tools slide out. Free users can get in on the PDF markup fun for 30 days, so go ahead and open up a scanned document or invoice to see how it works.

We love these features for sharing design feedback on-the-go, quickly marking up a contract or simply pointing out an important element in a snapshot.

Notebooks and Tags

We’ve also made some great improvements to the Notebooks and Tags screens. Check them out!

Notebooks
When you tap on the Notebooks section from the home screen, a nicely laid out list opens that combines Personal and Business notebooks, showing you the number of notes contained in each. When you tap the Edit button, you’re able to choose whether to subscribe to Reminders in any of the notebooks, and whether to receive Reminder emails. These are both great options if you need to stay updated on work or personal projects.

Tags
The Tag section also has a nice new feature. As you scroll through your tag list, you’ll find that more popular tags are darker. It’s an easy way to differentiate and quickly jump to the tag you want.

ios7_tags

Sharing Notes with AirDrop

AirDrop lets you share things with people near you, and now you can use it to share notes with others. In any note, tap the share icon and choose AirDrop. You’ll see the people near you who have AirDrop enabled. Choose one or more of them, and share away. It couldn’t be easier.

Keep Everything In Sync

This is an example of a super important, super hidden feature. For the first time on iOS, Evernote is able to keep your account updated when the app isn’t active. So, whenever you open the app, your Personal notes are all right there. No more waiting. This feature is also important in the following frequently-occurring situations:

  • Offline Notebooks for Premium users
  • When you use Evernote on multiple platforms and devices

In all these scenarios, your note list will now be up-to-date at all times. For Premium users, we’ll also make sure that your notes in your offline notebooks are downloaded and available when you don’t have a network connection.

ios7_notes1

All Shiny and New

Change can be challenging, but in this instance, it’s well worth it. We expect that just like with the rest of iOS 7, you’ll need a bit of time to get to know the new Evernote. It may be jarring at first, but we’re confident that you’ll grow to love it the same way that we have. Please let us know what you think.

    Update looks great except I REALLY don’t like that you included your latest blog post on the very top of the main page. Can I turn this off?

    • benoftroy

      After you’ve viewed all new items, the announcements panel moves to the bottom.

      • Catty Wampus

        While the information is appreciated, I don’t think this solves the issue at hand. Evernote is placing something in the app that, at best, should be a configurable option for users. Personally, I subscribe to Evernote’s RSS feeds in another app. When I go to the Evernote app, I do so to get work done, not to piddle around and read blog posts. The announcements panel takes space away from my work and gets in my way.

        • benoftroy

          I agree 100%. There ought to be a way to hide it… or just take it out. Like you say, Evernote is a place I go to do work, not read about new features or use-cases. That’s what the blog is for.

    • Gadgets20

      I agree and what about reminders being there. I thought that was one of the most important things you need to see

  • Sorin Pantiş

    Very nice, but please, oh please re-design the web-app as well. It feels like a 5th grade school project, as if it has nothing to do with the iOS app or the Windows desktop app. Thanks. :)

  • ehanneken

    This is great, but isn’t it a little rash to discontinue support for iOS 6 only zero days after iOS 7 was released?

  • drwrites

    Great functional updates but the wavy line background is not exactly iOS 7-esque…kinda headache inducing. Would be great if users could change the bkgd and color…or just make it flat.

  • Adam Sturdy

    The iphone app is wonderful, ipad also wonderful, and the homepage is great. I have two points:
    – Why is the ipad homescreen using only the left 1/3 of the screen
    – an option to always open on the home page would be great (especially on the phone when I want to be able to quickly snap something)

    Incorporating penultimate would be great too (another note type or something).

  • Dylan Kinnett

    The new home screen is a definite improvement in my opinion but it doesn’t have “everything” on it. Most notably missing: the search button. As a longtime Evernote user, I have many many notes. This being a mobile app, I want to get at them quickly. The “Search” is just too many clicks away.

  • Doug

    I upgraded to iOS7 and the new Evernote, but I lost the history of all of my older notes on my iPad. Everything still exists on my desktop, but I can only see new notes (ones created after the upgrade) on my iPad. HELP!

    • Greg

      I’m having the same issue as Doug. Upgraded my iPhone 4 to iOS7 and then upgraded to the new Evernote and now it doesn’t find any of my notes.
      Everything is still there on my laptop and on my Kindle Fire. I’ve tried to
      sync several times and none of the notes show up on my phone. Any ideas??!!??

      • Scott Ross

        I’m having the same issue. I’m a premium user with thousands of notes but after upgrading my app has 12 notes. I need a fix ASAP! It has rendered Evernote worthless.

        • Tamara Gruber

          I’m having the same problem. Glad to know I’m not alone. I hope this gets a fix as I depend on Evernote.

          • limechile

            Me too. What gives? I pulled up Evernote after upgrading to a new iPhone and was about to show my mother how awesome it is to keep recipes in Evernote. I couldn’t find any of them because only the handful of recently updated notes show up. Needless to say my mom wasn’t sold. :)

    • Joan Seamster

      has anyone figured this out yet – my Evernote notebook files pre-iOS7 on my iPad are still blank

    • Robson

      Try deleting the app and then reinstalling/downloading it. This way I could had acess to my older notes and now Evernote works just fine.

  • Halpi

    As a premium user, I am not a big fan of the green background. I like simple colors and clean lines. Can the user have an option to customize the color?

    • AndrewSinkov

      Thanks for the suggestion.

      • Matthew Lum

        I think that every version

      • Matthew Lum

        I think that every version of Evernote should have the unique Evernote theme, with the Evernote logo and the classic ‘Evernote’ green.

      • Kid Charlemagne

        Away give the user color theme options, don’t force your design tastes on us

    • Danjim

      Guys, I am not hard to please, I had always been a fan and use evernote in a daily basis for work, mostly becouse it’s been ok to use. The green is making my head in, I just can’t stand it (Maybe it’s just me…). I found challenging getting my way around specifically it took me a while to find the place to change a note from notebook to another notebook. It turns out it’s located under the “More” with in the note it self within the content area. I wish this could be located in a more logical place, perhaps at the top.

      Less green please, have some of it but do I have to see it every time I open the App. Can you please add more white. Keep it simple please!

    • roelatmac

      agree. evernote is the best. but the looks… terrible… the possibility to change the color alone would be great.

  • Brad Banter

    Is there no longer the ability to have Section and Subsection headings?? I love my notes to be well organized. Perhaps it’s there and I’m just not finding it. Over all though I do like it, just take some time to get used too the change. Very nice!

  • Miguel

    Hi,
    I really love the new version of Evernote to IOS7! Great funcionalities!
    Nevertheless, here follows some food for thought:
    – Include an option to remove the annoucements from the home screen (or even add an option to rearrange each box in the home screen)
    – Include an option to change the green color (although I like it green)
    – Some shortcuts for saved searches that I have in Evernote for Windows do not appear in my iPhone app (although they apear in my iPhone app). iPhone and iPad in IOS7 now.
    – Is it possible to have the upcoming reminders in the IOS7 notification center(example: I would like to see all the task reminders for the day in the notification center when I’m organazint the day in th begining of the morning)
    Keep up the good work

  • Chad Garrett

    It’s awesome, I love it. Very cool. Keep up the great work!

  • Mobile

    Extremely lovely and useful apps for iPhone user. time is key feature for every man thus it is just like a machine, you give the performance 100%, great feature as a whole.

    Would you please resume the button for pre-configured styles? I am really annoyed by it. I am not longer able to indent lines as I like; I can now only indent lines in a list.

    I’m having the same problem as mikemike9, I keep getting logged out of the app. This has to be some bug. I’m running iOS 7 on an iPhone 4S.

    • mikemike9

      (iPad 2 for me)

      FWIW a very similar thing is happening with the Gmail app and some others; it looks like applications are getting more aggressively closed by the process manager, or maybe that they are not being told they are being closed?

      Same here. I am having the same problem. It would be terrific if this was fixed soon. I am on a 4S with iOS 7 and Evernote 7.0

  • Andrew Limbert

    Way too much green.

  • Getomonk

    Ok – first of all the new design looks and feels very functional. But what happened to the colour. That green is absolutely hideous. Also did you discontinue the option to search for notes by location – that was a great feature.

    • Olddog

      I agree, the notes by location is a very useful feature. I hate “upgrading” and losing features.

  • benoftroy

    Seconded.

  • ssimonsez

    Upgraded to iOS7 last night and just upgraded Evernote a few minutes ago. But after opening the app – it crashes after a second or two. Tried opening it up at least a dozen times, but always crashes. Any ideas? I use Evernote 24/7 … so not having it on my iPhone will be a huge problem.

    It works just fine.

  • Sanitymops

    I love the new design and I can live with the colors but I really need my saved searches to work! -tag:* simply will not work anymore.

    One suggestion: let us customize the first screen and add a search box at the top. I would like to move the announcements section off or to the bottom.

    Thank you for the redesign!

  • Chris

    I’m not opposed to change or progress. And I’m sure a lot of work and effort went into these changes. A lot of it is very nice. Changing a program like this that so many are heavily invested in can’t be easy. But I have to echo the other comments here about the color scheme. Green on top of green with blue letters just does not look good. Even just an option to tweak the colors would be most welcome.

    Lastly I’m not opposed to having the blog trumpet present. I liked it better when it was the trumpet and number in the corner. Putting it back in the top right corner and replacing that line with a search box front and center would be very convenient. My unsolicited $.02

    The green is bad. Really bad. Not a good look guys. Please add an option to change it. I’d be satisfied with white. I like that everything is front and center and that it’s simpler to add notebooks to stacks. It would be great if we had the option to create hierarchal folders. Overall, no complaints other than the dreadful green.

    It crashes immediately upon launching. This comment is also being posted by other users on the App Store. It seems like users running iOS 7 on an iPhone 4 experience immediate crashes. My info is now completely unavailable to me. NOT HAPPY!

  • E. C. Chang

    Love the new interface, really like the quick note functionality. You guys have clearly done a lot under the hood. HOWEVER. WHY on earth would you take two of Evernote’s main selling features, Search and Reminders, and bury them several layers deep? When I open Evernote on a mobile device, it’s usually because I need to see what’s next on my task list, or because I need to look something up in a hurry. And yet, I can do neither of these things from the Home bar/screen. That’s a bad design choice, particularly when you’ve been marketing both of those features as extensively as you have done over the last few months. Please consider adding one-touch access to these features to the Home screen.

  • Kid Charlemagne

    It’s definitely regressive design. The previous version looks like the evolved version of the new version. Same can be said for many aspects of iOS7. Anti design minimalism is the new black. For now.

    Not feeling all the marketing crap all over the UI either. Evernote was cool when they were small, now that they’ve grown they’re getting all Sales Force on us. Time to find a new note app for me

  • Kid Charlemagne

    Whose idea was it to have a green background with light blue text????? God please tell me that designer did not pay for a college education

  • Amo Tarzi

    I do like the improvements, but there are still some major inconsistencies in the overall Evernote experience:

    1. Having tags sorted in groups on the desktop clients and sorting them just by name or count on the iOS devices doesn’t make much sense and is extremely irritating!

    2. What about places on the iPhone?

    3. Why not have tags visisble that are associated with notes in a given notebook just as I can view them on the desktop clients?

    I’m really looking forward to a more consistent experience across the platforms as this is something that evernote should shine at and is probably the whole philosophy of Evernote, right? Always have your external brain with you, but not many different working brains :)

    Keep up the great work!

  • Huomenna

    Are you guys serious? I can’t use Evernote anymore if I don’t upgrade
    to iOS7 (which, like the new Evernote, looks horrific)? Whose brainfart
    was this? I guess you like losing customers then, I don’t know. At
    least make the old version available. Not everyone is happily upgrading
    to iOS7 like sheep.

  • Gary Mc Ginty

    Please move “announcements” to the bottom of the screen under tags. They are not important to the user.

  • John E. Burgos

    No recording to take additional notes :(

  • Pete Paxton

    Please don’t bring all this green to the Android version!

  • Tulai Paul

    Interesting and thanks for a vivid description. The features of android and iOS have been greatly enhanced by the companies like admob or revmob or appnext, who have been constantly providing with newer mobile apps and games

  • Carolina Mondello

    The main feature I would like to see (and someone please tell me if it’s there and I am missing something) is the ability to select Evernote (like you can select Message, Mail, Twitter, Facebook) when you select to share for an email, webpage, photo, etc. I know I can email these things to myself through the evernote email add but would love to just press a button!

  • Nick

    You have truncated the amount of text showing in the ipad version of Tags. This is dreadful. Why do you show a full line in notebook, but truncate the amount of text in the Tag. I now have loads of tags all beginning with the same word but no idea as to the other words in the tag. You have to sort this now. It is dreadful. Please.

  • Mr_Kobayashi

    Then new design is absolutely gorgeous, especially on iPad. I love the blurry background when you open the app.
    A pity that iPhone version keeps logging out.
    I’m sure it will be fixed shortly.

  • Scott Carter

    The green is just fine. It would be nice to be able to arrange the different sections of the home page though. It would also be great to have search on the home page, right at te top, or do it the way ios7’s spotlight search is designed. Another great idea would be to separate the saved searches from the general search. I use EN for GTD and the saved searches are the basis of this setup. It’s the feature that I use daily, and it takes too long to get to.

  • Vieras

    *crammed* No fullscreen notes on iPad?!? WTF?! Everything else as well crammed into a tiny sidebar! A reason to discontinue my subscription, no matter how much i used to love evernote, the old iPad version having been the best of them among all platforms. This new one is useless, failing basic usability principles even worse than the cluttered iOS7.

  • engrime

    Evernote freezes on my iPhone 5 with iOS 7. Delete, turn off, re-install helps only for a few minutes, then freeze again! I don’t care how “beautiful or ugly” it is if it does not function! Can you fix this app?

  • Kathy Spear

    This is awful. It hasn’t been that long since you did a major re-design of the iOS UI. Another one? Next time you do something this drastic why don’t you warn people so they can decide if they are in a good “space” to spend a major chunk of their life figuring out how to re-use an app. Like many have said, the app is ugly. Green Geen Green. I am not Kermit. And why can’t you use the standard conventions of a plus sign to create a new item. I finally figured out that if I create a new note I have the option of creating a new notebook to put it in, but how do I move a notebook or rename one? I assume I will figure it out eventually. But I am not a happy camper. I got a Premium upgrade with a software bundle and it is coming up for renewal soon. This new overhaul is NOT making me feel like whipping out my credit card.

    clipper for safari on ios7?

  • danygeller

    Hi, i don’t get the shortcut section on the top. Only the announcements and then the notes. What’s wrong ?

  • Kim

    Some great improvements in functionality, but a few frustrations/suggestions remain:
    1. Search function on iPad – I have many many notes and I need the ability to search and find them quickly (within 10 seconds ideally) while I am seeing patients in my clinic. I would love to see the same search capabilities that the desktop version has also on the web/iPhone/iPad versions. Specifically, the ability to search within a notebook (even if I enter a notebook on the iPad version the search option goes back to ‘all notes’?) as well as adding options for tags and key word search to narrow down the exact note I am looking for.
    2. I have been requesting this search function for a while, but will re-request it in the new version as well – a search option to limit search words to note titles only. I often need to only search for words in the title to find the note I am wanting, but end up with all the other notes that ever mention that word.
    3. I agree with many of the other comments on the homepage being too green – I like the new layout, but even if the background was green and the rounded rectangles white with black writing it would be easier to read – or having the option to change the colour scheme would be great. Also please let us hide or move the notifications bar to the bottom of the screen – I read the blog to get this information – when I am accessing Evernote on my iPad it is for immediate access to key information and this takes up prime space on the home screen that could be used for a quick search button/function.
    4. It is a bit strange that the iPad version has a home screen the size of an iphone with the rest of the screen blurred out – an easy access search screen with options to add tags and notebooks would be great in this current dead space! Or a to be able to customize it with a permanent (full) list of all my shortcuts would be very very helpful.
    5. The ability to customize the homepage would be great – I’d personally prefer more room for my shortcuts (which I use as indexes) and less space dedicated to tags (which I prefer to use during searches).
    6. On the upside I really like the clean new look on the iPad for browsing notes with the white background.

    Thanks so much – I love Evernote and use it on a daily basis in both my work and personal life.

  • Joel J.

    Surprised by all the color comments. I think the mintier green is fresh and a creative change. My suggestion would be to make the icons at the bottom bolder (thicker pixels), but that would go for other aspects of iOS7 as well.

  • J Kronenberg

    I am predominantly an iPhone /iPad user:

    1. Ithink in colors: I would like to organize subject tabs/notebooks by color. I must agree with others: this much green should only be seen on March 17th

    2. Does this integrate with Safari, so the new export icon will point us to a clipping function? I use EverClip, but would prefer having it built in.

  • Kathleen Cooper

    Evernote is great BUT with this new one for my IPad I have one problem—I click notebooks bring up the one i want, open it and click on what I want in that notebook and instead of it coming up full screen its about 2/3 of the screen with other evernote stuff on the side, so I can’t read what I want properly. How do I make it full screen so I can read it? If its PDF it seems okay—these are mostly knitting patterns.

  • Michael

    Evernote (iOS 7 / iPhone 4) doesn´t remember username/password – needs to be entered everytime I start evernote. Any idea ? Thanks. Michael ( pls. email to fagott1@aon.at)

  • Fayimora Femi-Balogun

    I totally agree. The new design is ugly. Everything is just text and lists now. I miss the lovely green and textures. Notebooks don’t even feel like notebooks anymore. I expected those lovely notebook icons(like the ones on the mac) to stay put on the iPad at least. Notebooks should be notebooks and not just a list!

    Generally, I feel like I’m using a mobile app on my iPad.

  • Fayimora Femi-Balogun

    While this update might be nice for the iPhone user, it’s complete rubbish for the iPad user. I feel like I’m using an enlarged iPhone app. What happened to those lovely icons? Notebooks should be notebooks and not just lists on the left of your screen.

    The colors are badddd. Why not a grey background and green links? Currently it’s almost unreadable.

    Also, customization of the home screen would be a life saver. At LEAST could you put upcoming Reminders on the home screen? It’s how I schedule my day and currently it feels so buried.

  • Andrea Quintanar

    I’ve been using the new Evernote for iOS7 for a few days, and I love it. So beautiful and easy to use. One complaint though: I used to be able to sort my Shortcuts manually, but now it seems that option has disappeared. I prefer all my notes in alphabetical order, because it’s easier for me to find them that way. It would be great if you could restore the manual sort option, but even better if you’d add a sort by title or date like you have in other places of the app.

  • chris_Shields

    I love the new design, however, the “paste link” button that was above the keyboard in the note editor is GONE!!! ??? How do I use internal note linking now? ARRRGH so frustrated as this USED TO BE an awesome feature. :(

  • Kate Holmes

    How do I delete a note now? I’ve read an incoming note, don’t need it any more, and I cat see a garbage icon or delete button now? Not impressed that I have to even ASK this… Pfffftttt.

      In list view, swipe the note to the left to add a shortcut or reminder to the note and also delete it.

    I love the background sync, but is there a way to sync manually? Or has that been taken away? I edited a note on my computer and pressed sync, now I’ve been waiting for 10 minutes for it to be updated on my phone. I’d really like to be able to force a sync when necessary.

  • Mark

    I find the green-hued left pane in the app too monochromatic. Also the shade of green makes it harder to see the words. The blue-green text on a dark green background doesn’t make for easy legibility. Green should be an accent color, not a fill-color everywhere.

    In the snippets view, it seems that you can only swipe over the notes to scroll, but if you swipe up/down in the margins, there’s no scrolling. That’s bad. (This is on the iPad).

  • mcackay

    Compared to the abortion that was the previous version, the IOS7 update is amazing. I can finally use the Home screen (mostly). But you really need to address a few things:

    1. Announcements: Top of the home screen? Really? Why would I want to waste the top 1cm of my iPhone 4S screen looking at a reminder of all the things YOU want to share with us. I use Evernote for MY CONTENT, not yours.

    Move the announcements bar to the bottom of the page, or at a very minimum make it disappear when i’ve gone into it — until there is a _new_ announcement i haven’t seen.

    2. Customisable Home Screen Blocks: Let us add / remove / reorder the home screen blocks to how we like it. (A good way to handle #1 above too).

    3. “Type a quick note” just takes up screen real estate (especially on Pre-iPhone 5 devices) and simply acts like a button. Simply add a “+” button to the new floating toolbar, and give us back another usable centimetre.

    Even better, put a big plus sign along the bottom, which quickly pops-up a large finger-optimised overlay where we can choose the type of note we want to start (and perhaps if you double-tap starts a plain text note, for speedy note taking).

    4. Editable shortcut list: You only show the top 2 shortcuts on the home screen of my 4S, but there’s now way to actually re-order my favourites to choose my top 2 on the IOS devices.

    On-balance I like the new version. I don’t care about the green — it’s your brand colour, so I get it. It’s workable for me (although for people with poor visions, the low-contrast would suck).

    I’m glad to see a change for the better, but it would be truly fantastic if you guys actually listened and engaged with the community when planning a major redesign. The previous ‘design refresh’ was impossible to understand. This version is more clear, but there are elements of all three that i’d personally like to see combined.

    Either consult with us, or give us the option of customisation — so we can make our own choices, and don’t need to re-learn things every time you decide to ‘mix things up.

  • Tricia McDonald Ward

    Very, very disappointed to find that the new version has so many bugs. Seems like a premature release. It’s extremely slow, and quits unexpectedly over and over, losing any recent edits. And there are fewer text formatting options, and correcting spelling now requires an extra step. Why? Sure, it’s ugly too, but my real concern is that loss of basic functionality. I hope these things will be fixed very soon. I have come to count on Evernote, but am now finding it very annoying to use.

  • Bill

    New iOS7 design is horrible. You really missed the mark on design.

  • Silvia

    I updated to iOS 7 Evernote today and I’m disappointed in these 3 aspects.

    1. When writing a note, the ability to change the font size (sub section, section, block quote) has been removed
    2. Being able to correct words which are spelt wrong (this may just be a bug, but when a word is spelt wrong, usually a red line would appear under it and if you press on the word you can see suggestions to correct, this has been removed in the current version)
    3. The layout of Notebooks is disappointing, I always believed that physically seeing the notebooks laid out on the app was a fantastic feature.

    On top of this, I believe Evernote would improve significally if we were able to use different fonts and change font size while making a note.

    Thank you :)

  • Silvia

    you have to physically go to the App Store and press “update” :/ well at least that’s what happened to me

  • Silvia

    Another suggestion is improvement to powerpoint viewings!
    Often if there’s too much text on a slide of a powerpoint, Evernote is unable to view the WHOLE text only most of it from the top.

    It is almost painful to work in this new version for the iPad!! I LOVED having tabs for notebooks, tags and all notes… it let me keep 3 different search criterias open and switch between them as I worked.

    Also, assigning tags to a note is horrible!! I can’t do a boleen search for the tag… so I have to know exactly how I spelled it and if I used a special character to keep it at the top of my tag list, now I’m really screwed.

    Don’t get me wrong I LOVE Evernote!!! But, it appears that this update allowed visual aesthetics to override functional requirements.

    Please Evernote, Please… understand that some of us work from these IOS apps more than our PCs and we use Evernote for more than searching through notes.

    • Marcus Boswell

      I feel your pain. Its not nice to have functionality that you are familiar with disappear on you. I also sympathise with your wish to have a Boolean search as I am feeling the same. My frustration comes from the iPhone app and the search facility. It appears that previous searches even when misspelled still show up on the list.

      I would like to see the ability to delete these from the list.

    Updated to iOS 7 version. Looked ok for a few minutes. Screen went to black. Message says “sync failed”. Screen is still black.

  • Mike

    Working with an iPad mini and only being able to read off 2/3 of the screen is difficult. I would like to see the side bar be ‘put away’ when I don’t need it. If I’m reading a document I don’t necessarily need to see the list of other documents I have t all times.

  • David

    What happened to the Atlas/Map view of notes for the iPad version? I don’t see it.

  • piecorax

    Bring back the full screen editor. I hate the way you limit me to half the width of my screen, wasting the other half with the ugly and pointless list of notes I’m not doing anything with, and have no interest in seeing.

    Bring back search to the home page.

    Bring back the sync button. It’s the only reason someone uses your app over the built in note program in iOS, so hiding it seems like someone at Evernote is trying to sabotage the business.

    Why is the home page limited to the side bar? You are wasting so much space where you could have kept all the useful features, just because your devs were too lazy to design for the iPhone and the iPad separately? It looks stupid, is horrifically inefficient, and seems like the only reason to do it was because you wanted to make life worse for users, rather than better.

  • Vieras

    Overall, this is iphone app, poorly portes to ipad, not utilising the whole screen, displaying iPhone-sized boxes everywhere, including the useless homescreen/sidebar. Displaying just a few notebook titles on a big acreen?!? You always have to tap into a subdialog, which is likewise miniature.

    You cannot swipe the useless sidebar visible, like the pane in the mail app, as you would expect. I would also expect swiping the title of a note down to at least go back to the notebook if not to homescreen as in thhe magnificent previous version.

    Defaulting to displaying just 1/2 of a note (ipad mini) is just insane, and the fullscreen button is extremely well hidden (like most buttons on the disappointing cluttered iOS7).

    Reminders poorly accessible, no nice simple prominent list like on android, or quic accesss button like the old version.

    Overall score 1/5. Extremely disappointing. On iPad anyway.

  • Alexander Kladov

    The design looks great and the new photo editing is pretty cooll. But can you guys please fix the following:

    1) Replace the useless (sorry, but it’s true) announcements bar on the top with a search field instead. Evernote is all about quickly searching for your content. And it makes it very difficult/slow/annoying to do that when every time you want to look for something you have to navigate into Notes and then press on the search button.

    2) Make saved searches stand out more on Macs (Mac’s version of Evernote doesn’t have an option to add saved searches section to sidebar, unlike the on in Windows, which is frustrating) and iOS (where it takes unreasonable amount of action to get to saved searches – go to Notes, click on search button, scroll all the way down past the previous searches – not exactly “quick access” as you’d call it). I use saved searches A LOT (and I am sure other heavy users do too). I have to use them instead of Shortcuts, since shortcuts only sync between iOS devices and Macs, but I also have Windows machines. Because of this inconsistency, I have to first create all of my saved searches in Windows, then add them to shortcuts on a Mac, so that I’d have an easier access to them on my iPhone. I am sure user experience can be improved here to make it more consistent.

    3) I use very complex nested tag structure (thanks, David Allan, for messing with my OCD..) and it would’ve been awesome if it was possible to see tags as hierarchy on iOS devices, and not just a pile of alphabetical tags.. (Not a biggie, but would be very nice to have)

    4) Bring back the “drag down to sync” function. My notes don’t sync quickly enough. I want to be in control of that.

    5) Allow users to change order of sections on the main screen.

    If those would be fixed, I’d be so happy =D

  • Zachary Zorbas

    Incredible work you guys. I’m in love with Evernote even more now!!! Just beautiful.

  • iCoco_de

    Functionally, I love the new Evernote 7. It’s good that the space-consuming tabs are gone and screen estate is now used more efficiently. Quick memo function and Skitch integration are awesome. Favorites on top of the list now is right where it belongs. (Now add a search bar here on top, and it’s perfect.)

    However, this new dull-green hue plunges me into deep depression, and the background pattern I find just plain ugly. I really dislike this zig-zag background. On iPhone I find it really disturbing, while everybody is talking about flat/minimal design. This reminds of grandma’s crochet blankets – “Omas Häkeldeckchen” in german ;). I’d love to see that zig-zag background removed. Or at least *please!* do give me a setting to disable it.

  • Steve Brigden

    The document camera function is completely messed up in the latest version.

    1. When I photo multiple pages of handwritten notes they appear in my EN note in a completely random order (case open with EN support on this).

    2. It is clearly optimised for the iPhone 5 as on a 4S the camera control buttons cover the bottom section of the image, so you have to guess what you are capturing when you press the shutter button.

    3. It is just plain UGLY and I hate the new UI.

  • derlinzer

    Background sync is a great feature, but when will you implement syncing reminders for iOS/OS X? Without proper and reliable syncing reminders are pretty useless… Don’t forget, that iOS, OS X & Android support push notifications.

Restarting phone, reinstalling app does not work. Help. It feels like the old Skitch 3.0 team are now working on Evernote. Please get rid of them and start employing proper testing again.

I did not like the old version at all and was surprised when i first saw it and how unefficient it was in comparison to the desktop version. But this new version on my iPad is simply amazing. Its what i was hoping you guys would be when i first searched for it in the app store. Very appealing aesthetics as well. Seriously, i absolutely love it, and thank you once again! You’re now my favorite app on the ipad.

    Is anyone else having performance problems? I could always swipe the screen and whip through notes on my iPad as fast as I wanted. But in this new version, everything keeps getting hung up.

    Forgive me if I’m missing it, but are we no longer able to take a photo from within a note?? The previous versions had a photo icon when in the edit panel of a note (as well as the mic for recording an audio note, which is still there). Now I can only find the camera by going all the way back out to the main intro screen and creating a Quick Note. Am I blind or did the photo feature disappear from within the note view?

      Emma, you can still take a photo from within a note – just hit the +, then the paperclip icon. You’ll see the photo option there. You can also take audio notes from here, and attach a photo.

    I found the solution to Evernote iOS 7’s UGLY green on green UI and all its bugs. I uninstalled from my iPhone and downgraded to ver 5.4.3 Wow…. I’ve never been so thrilled to downgrade to an earlier version. Its one thing to be inspired by Apple’s minimalist design… its another thing to poorly implement it and in doing so totally screw up your product.

    Doesn’t look like Evernote is replying to anyone, but it’s worth a try! My mom and I both recently updated Evernote on our iPads and had the same problem: All of our notes are gone but the notebooks are there, just empty. Logged in on laptop & notes were all there. Synced but notes didn’t transfer. Edited some notes on laptop then synced again & *some* edited ones now show up in app but still missing a ton of them. Based on recent App Store reviews, looks like this is happening to other people as well. How do I get all my notes to show up in the app? Please!

    Also having same issue as others with the app running extremely slowly & glitchy. Used to be able to quickly go back & forth between this & other apps, copy text from web & paste into note, etc. but now when I navigate back to Evernote, the note I was just working on is frozen, then closes itself & I have to reopen it. Very inefficient!

    A super useful feature we had before the update was the ability to tap the “+” in any tag context… and not only would the new note go into the default notebook, but it would also automatically add the tag of the context you were in to the new note. One step less in processing stuff. Added to that, now I have to remember exactly what tag I want to add from memory as opposed to choosing from a visual list.

    It seems like we have to tap on “< back" ridiculously too often… it doesn't flow like the previous app. Also, previously the shortcut menu tab was accessible at any time… now we have to hit < back to get there in a number of contexts. You wouldn't need to waste space on the home screen with a shortcut menu, with an easily accessible shortcut tab no matter where you are, which we had in the last version.

    The whole idea of the shortcut menu is that we put the bare minimum of what we want to access there and keep it uncluttered… in that sense it is sort of obsolete viewing just the first few on the list. Hypothetically all of the shortcuts are important to us… and so the shortcut section on the new home screen is clunky and a waste of visual space… the new app looks way too cluttered!! I wish I could go back to the previous version!!!

    How funny is it that you can’t edit the shortcuts directly in the shortcut section right off the home screen?… but it can be edited in a specific notebook or tag context… the places I’d least be inclined to want to reshuffle or edit the shortcut menu…it’s a little inconsistent to say the least… and both lists look different in style… one you have to close and the other you have to press < back. Just saying… we need some uniformity…

    The old Evernote was intuitive and easy to use. Evernote for iOS7 is clunky and buggy. I also can’t figure out how to do anything beyond writing a note. I keep having to do web searches about “how to do this” or “how to do that.” It’s annoying. I never had to do that with the older version, which I loved. (I used the older version for Android, then for iPad and iPhone.)

    Now I’m getting a black screen in Evernote on my iPad. I was able to get out of it, but when I reopen Evernote, I get the black screen again. I tried restarting my iPad and now it’s even worse. I am still getting the black screen in Evernote, though sometimes it will show me my notes, but if it does, Evernote is completely locked up. I can’t open a note, create a new note, or do anything. A few times it’s locked up the entire iPad. Restarting does not fix this problem.

    This is especially annoying, since I just signed up for premium and I’m working on an important project with other people with whom I am sharing one of my notebooks.

    For the record, I don’t like the Market or any of the ad-like things, especially since I’ve paid for this. I should see only my own notes and notebooks, and that’s it.

    As a Premium user, I have had no issues with the iOS 7 update, but I am disappointed that there is still no way to duplicate notes in the iOS version. Since Evernote doesn’t support the creation of Note Templates, I have built my own, duplicating my “template” note for re-use as needed. This is a fine work around when I’m at my desk or if I lug my laptop around with me. However, very often when on the go I’m just using my iPad and the Evernote iOS version. I know that this feature has been requested in the forums for some time. Is it really such a difficult request?

  • Mr. Bee

    The problem I have with Evernote is that it’s just so hideous. It’s a tad better with this revision in that they have moved from “Electric Green” to a sort of “Mouldy Green,” but still … what if you don’t like Green?

    I think Apple, as well as many independent App creators are making a major mistake by trying to “own” a colour in the way that big brands do. The reason that big brands do that, is because they want to differentiate themselves from a selection of other offerings that are essentially identical. Despite how ugly it is, Evernote is not like any other apps that I know of, there is no reason to make it all hideously green so as to differentiate it from the purple app that does the same thing. There are no apps that do the same thing in the same way.

    All Evernote is doing by hanging onto this awful green branding is turning away whatever percentage of the population (like me) that simply can’t abide by the look of the thing. If Evernote was purple for instance, or even pink all the way through, I would use it everyday.

    Why not simply add the ability to change the colour of the UI and get rid of the ugly green elephant icon? It would be the same app, but it would probably double sales because it wouldn’t have this arbitrary and ridiculous thematic choice that adds absolutely nothing substantial to the product, standing in the way of sales.

    In this case “going green” adds nothing, and potentially subtracts huge amounts of sales. it’s just idiotic.

    Beautiful.

    Is there any chance for an Android overhaul as well? Please?

      I doubt I’ll get a reply, but it’s worth a shot, right? :\'(

    I agree! Penultimate would be great with a minimal type of integration. Heck! Just make the Penultimate app work with all iOS devices.
