Sometimes the app would get stuck loading a note (usually a web clip or shared note) until finally it gave up and assumed you were offline. But now your notes should load fast enough to make you smile.
If you updated to macOS Catalina then tried to highlight text inside a PDF, it would look like there was nothing selected. You could say it was a big fail, but on the bright side, we fixed it.

I’ve been using Evernote for several years now, including two career changes and blog maintenance. It served me well in my old life as Corporate ladder climber (IT, direcetor level), and now as a happy school teacher at a disciplinary campus. In both careers, I found information came at you too fast. In corporate leadership training, I went through “Zero Inbox” training and realized at that moment all was lost. There was no way I was going to get through 200+ emails a day. Enter Evernote. I switched to html email client and just clipped anything of importance into Evernote. It wasn’t even a few weeks I knew it was a no brainer to get the paid subscription version. While I was laid off and ran my own consulting firm Evernote was there to help me manage contracts, meeting notes and invoices. As I went after my teaching certificate Evernote was there as well; managing contacts, cover letters, audio files from lectures. Three years into teaching I still go to it daily, just not as much. 6th grade, 7th grade and 8th grade science classes and lesson plan templates are just a click away, as are all the nuggets I find for Restorative Discipline circles. I cannot image life without Evernote.
Evernote has problems
I used to love Evernote. I don’t use it for business per se, but I need to find info when I need it! Not 5 minutes after I started searching for it in the app. I had EVERYTHING, EVERY THING in Evernote but couldn’t find things because it would NOT show info within notes that I was searching for. Also, I had some notes that I had unknowingly put the title in quotes! That was a big mistake. Even when I KNEW it was in Evernote, I could not access it. Very frustrating. I finally ended up parting ways with Evernote. Now comes the bad news. I had over a thousand notes! There is NO WAY to export your contents!!!! I had to literally copy EACH NOTE and place in Apple Notes. What a huge pain. Then I went on a long and fruitless search for a note program that would do everything evernote was doing. Well, I’m back again. There were several deal breakers for other programs. Even though evernote is not perfect it still seems to be the best option that I could find. I am very careful to specifically title notes with key words. You cannot get Evernote to download everything. I can try to download an article and most times I get only a link. This puts me in the same predicament I was in initally! I cannot access the ‘cloud’ at all times and I work in a hospital!!! Lots of lead shielding and the like. I have to go in paragraph by paragraph and copy/paste into evernote to have access to it when the cloud is absent. I hate the ‘cloud’.
I think I may have outlived its usefulness
I’ve been using Evernote for at least 7 years, but it has mostly ended up as a side show to to my workflow, despite many attempts to make it a central repository for my work. When I started consulting, I looked at it as an opportunity to use Evernote more fully in my workflow, tracking clients, calls, meetings, etc. I set up tags and notebooks but it never seemed to quite work. Is each client a tag or a notebook? Without a calendar function, how can I track progress against a timeline? Reminders pop up once, but there’s not a snooze function, nor is there a place to see when your reminders are scheduled in a calendar. I tried plug-ins or IFTTT to make Evernote work with Google calendars to no avail. Then, documents for clients have to be in Word or Excel or PDF, so why should I do them in Evernote? And if I did want to share drafts of things in Evernote, the sharing a note experience is awful if the client is not in Evernote too. And I can’t do calculations in Evernote, so my billing and invoicing has to be done elsewhere too. Finally, they released this update and I thought, "OK, well at least the design will improve, and the desktop will look more like the web version (which is clean and much more visually appealing, like the iPhone app)". But...nope. As far as I can tell, all that changed is the icon. So, for me, I think I’ll go back to using it as a repository of things I find on the internet.
