Guest mrossk Posted December 20, 2013 Share Posted December 20, 2013 I am an Evernote user since the middle of 2010 and have spent much time to migrate all my information to this product in the last years. But now I see that this was a big mistake.Many bugs will never be fixed even they are described in detail by the community. They seem to be forgotten for Evernote but they still exist, even after years! And no, I make no further example because there are enough of them in the forums.The product is getting even more bugs over the time. Every update has NEW problems.There is not one single version that really works without bugsOn android you have to re-install and sync the database nearly after every update to keep it running (over the time I have had enough phones and tablets to see that this are really problems of Evernote and not of the hardware)Shared notes are making advertising even for paying usersNow I see that shared notes are even showing a big advertising-popup to create an evernote-account every time my customers open it. What the f*ck. Sorry, but this is the next thing that I really can't believe because it destroys my workflow a step further.The UI downgrade on Windows Desktop makes it still difficult to read and use. And no, stepping back to version 4 is not a solution, it would only be a further workaround.What makes me so angry: In 2010 I tested Evernote over a time of 6 months and had been sure that the product keeps serious because Evernote has promised this by the slogan "100 year company" so I have spent much time to migrate all things to Evernote in the last years. Now I see that I have to do all the work again to migrate away from Evernote. --------------------- You can compare Evernote like this example with a car: Evernote: Hey, our car has now air conditioning.Customers: Wow 6 weeks later: Evernote: Hey, our car has now comfortable leather seatsCustomers: Wow 6 weeks later: Evernote: Hey, our car has now automatic driveCustomers: Wow 6 weeks later: Evernote: Hey, our car has now a motor that is 20% strongerCustomers: Wow ... and so on 2 years later: Customer asks: When does your car get wheels so we can start driving with it???? --------------------- Sorry to say all this but the development of this product is really frustrating because I have relied on it.
