  1. Same here as a user. But I stopped paying them. its hopeless, they deliver bad buggy products for years, and can't seem to make an update without breaking the app. The users are just paying for privilege of being beta testers of the program that is not even safe for the data, a primary function of the program. No official feedback from CEO that has been promising new evernote that will make it smooth and fast, non of that. Just more silence or lies from incompetent and irresponsible developer team at Evernote. its been like this for years and years now.

  2. Very disappointed with Evernote. After some 18 months of development, working from scratch they still managed to release in public, a broken, buggy, laggy, piece of software with features missing in a new version of program that is now what 10 years in development. Before this release all the previous releases for years were buggy mess, broken and dangers to your data. No matter the feedback, no matter the complaint, no matter the subscribers Ever note team is just unwilling and unable to release a fully functioning product. They are incompetent and irresponsible. Just read these forums, for years one horror story after another. How is that even possible?

    This company still demands monthly payment for pre-alpha builds release to the public, where we the users act as testers. Its unacceptable. I agree Official Statement from Evernote needed and they need to fire most of their team and get someone who can write a code and not break the application with every release. Its not one time, or sometimes, its every damn time. How is that even possible?

    You are correct; I used the term "paid account feature" without considering theres grandfathered Paid accounts.
    I will correct my post to say "premium account feature"

    >>If evernote loses my data because of their bug
    You can contact Evernote Support and explain the situation.  They have been known to allow free access.

    Yes, I have still the old account. And I guess they changed the new account policies. 

    "You can contact Evernote Support and explain the situation.  They have been known to allow free access."

    Hmm. In the past much like the original poster I got no reply. Too little staff and too many bugs for them to care. Which is the whole frustration of the original poster I imagine. So while on paper this looks like solution, it has been my experience that in the past few years on 4 occasions I had contacted them I only got someone to talk to one time and they were not much help. And this was in early days, which ultimately brought me to join the forums in hope of finding answers to problems.

    The Note History backup is running all the time, for all accounts.

    Access to the data is a paid account feature.  Users can subscribe for a single month.
    An alternative is for users to run their own backups.  No  payment is required to Evernote.

    I  use both resources to recover lost data; regardless if the gremlins are in the program, my fingers, my computer, ...

    Evernote Plus user here and have been for many years. When I click on note history, this shows up and in the link your provided it says, that its for premium and business users. Where do you get information that its for everyone. 


    EDIT: I see you are saying we have to pay for bugs. If I have to pay for it, why is that ok? If evernote loses my data because of their bug, now they expect me to pay for their bug too.... on top of what I'm already paying. That might be possible to retrieve that data, but come on. Its extortion.

    I received a message back from Rich this morning on a private message I sent last night through the site.  I think they're working to get some things clarified, and I'm told that they are passing on the UI and functionality feedback concerns directly to their product managers.

    I hope that management is taking this feedback seriously.  Just because not everyone is publicly up in arms, doesn't mean they aren't disturbed or annoyed/angry/concerned.  Most of us have put a lot of trust in Evernote as we've worked with it over the years.  As an IT person, I couldn't do my job very easily without it, so naturally I'm protective of access through my best selected working version, 6.5.4.  I'm a bit alarmed at the feedback I've read concerning data loss and some of these UI/feature updates.

    I can understand EN's side, too, and I realize that it was just a matter of time before holding off on product updates presented a security issue.  Overall, I'd rather have my data secure and figure this stuff out later, but not drop it or force these changes on users.

    To me, it seems the best option is to not remove features when introducing new ones, to more thoroughly test new versions before making them GA, and to try to give users more control over the UI so that they can disable features, or enable a "Classic Mode" or something like that.

    For now, one of my machines is on 6.7.6 as of last night (don't like the note padding on the edges so far, bleh), and I've just upgraded one of my work machines to the latest 6.13.14 just to see where we are with things these days.  I do hope to not have any serious reliability or usability issues.

    That is a very useful update, thank you. Unlike the guy who send the mail, not even replying. But having random users do their own work. They really are lower than a pregnant snail. But once again thank you. 

    How did you upgrade to 6.7.6. Just installed it and that was it, did you have to resync the whole database. Did you lose anything in the process? Thank you.

    I can confirm that the drag and drop issues were introduced in 6.8. There should be no issues with dragging dropping attachments to or from Evernote when using 6.7.6. 

    That is good, I do not want to lose drag and drop and you guys can't find a way to make it work again so, at least you kept the old way in 6.7.6. Its key productivity feature in a productivity app. 

    That being said, are there any other known bugs in version 6.7.6 that I can expect? 

    And just to make sure I have some back up, how do I back up my data prior to update. What is the best more reliable way since synchronization does not work.

    Just uninstalled 6.13 and reinstalling the 6.7 with the hotfix. Now going to have to wait for 14K+ notes to sync. Such a productivity killer as oppose to a productivity product lately! Disappointed.

    Can you please report back here if all works out well for you, I'm at 18 K + notes and 13 GB of data, that will take whole day of me just watching it do its thing and probably fail. If it works out for you , please let me know. I can't afford to stop working and not be sure it will work. Thank you so much.

    If I understand You correctly, You mean Office documents like Word, to drag them into the note from lets say desktop. It does support this function.

    PDF's anything. in version 6.5.4 and earlier it worked with any file. Dropping one file or any kind from and to evernote, not issues. Than they I think changed PDF viewer and all went down hill from there. In some versions they fix it partially only to make it not work again in the next version and so on. Never mind the numerous other bugs that was one of the big reasons why I didn't upgrade. Are you a 100% sure or anyone else that dragging and dropping works. With all files, from and to evernote. It used to work and works well in 6.5.4, last known version that it works.

    I delited 6.13. and went with the Hotfix they provided (http://cdn1.evernote.com/win6/public/Evernote_6.7.6.7584.exe). Can say that I am at peace, for now it works the same as I had before plus it is the fix they provided so I assume it is the first of the save updates. Hope I do not find anything disturbing.

    Does this version support Drag and Drop ? I depend on that for work.

    I've been on 6.13 for an hour or two and I am super aggravated. Cursor moves to wherever and sometimes it disappears. I already lost the content of a note which was a screenshot and I have no idea what it is now.

    I make bullet list, it creates it above where I want it. SHIFT + END acts like CTRL + SHIFT + END.

    I understand that there will be bugs, but these issues are so easily noticeable. Therefore, my question: is anybody at Evernote using the app? You cannot NOT notice these. Somebody should say, hey let's fix these before we release them, these are pretty significant things that is happening right of the bat!

    Yeah the feedback on forums has been in a word; frustration ever since 6.5.4 version. But somehow, these developers managed to introduce more bugs with each new version, one worse than others and even if they fix one here and there it reappears two versions after that or they simply solve two bugs and introduce five more. I have tried to talk on it as many have on forums no change. I talked to people in marketing and they assured me they will do something, off course nothing happened. I can't reach anyone with any authority to fire the whole development team because without exaggeration they are simply incompetent. No self respecting team can do this much damage to their own product in each new release. 

    We the users now don't even know a list of known bugs in each version after 6.5.4. I mean they are all unstable and buggy but some more than others. I don't even know which one is less worse than others. This is really terrible.

    Some more comments here..

    PS I got an email from Evernote today warning me that even though I'm not (as far as they know) on an older version - I'm actually on the current Beta 6.14.3 - they'll force a logout just to make sure.

    I await developments (as they say) with interest...

    Reading it now. I send email to Rich Tener yesterday and no reply. I posted on his timeline, no reply. So frustrating.

    Yes, me too!

    I just logged out, and now I can't log back in (says it can't connect to server). Please don't tell me I have to upgrade since everything is broken going forward (e.g. PDF files view, etc)

    What do I do to get back into this Evernote?

    Same thing here. Just when you thought they couldn't do worse, evernote pulls this beautiful ace out of their sleeve. Unbelievable. I can't even reach the main security person who send an email.

    Same here.  Not pleased.

    This forced upgrade was not clearly stated in the announcement.
    Clearly stated would be "You will no longer be able to use any version of Evernote older than [version release]"

    For now, I ran the "hotfix" atop my 6.5.4 installation, and it upgraded me to 6.7.  The link in the Security Bulletin didn't work for me due to an extra period at end.  Here it is with the slight correction:
    I think it's just the installer for v6.7.6.7584, not really a patch, per se?

    I'm not sure of the differences in 6.7 over 6.5.4, but for now, aside from some note edge padding, this gets me back in on my signed-out machines until we see how this shakes out.

    Oh, man this is ***** storm of epic proportions. If I remember, they changed PDF editor in 6.7.6 which didn't have drag and drop feature, everyone wanted and looks really clunky. Also its buggy, last time I lost data. And all other version after that are mind field of bugs and broken features or missing features. I can't believe this geniuses are forcing users to use products that they broke and force us to upgrade now. You can't make this stuff up. Jeez. What ***** storm. And off course no way to reach the guy who is forcing this upgrade. I posted on his wall a clear question on this, no reply. And no one down here in forums cares about users, because its been silent for years now. No replies. I just don't see why would anyone want to buy ticket to this Titanic anymore. So frustrating.

    I still wonder why EN needs the chromium framework for just a  simple editor. Now they are dependent on Google which is famous for suddenly stopping products or breaking API's...

    Completely agree. Seems very limited as a choice for editor. But I guess it could have something to do with the fact hat Evernote has close ties with Google. The current CEO is ex Google guy. They also forced adding chrome PDF viewer that no one likes if I'm not mistaken. The more Google stuff I hear the less things seem to work as they should.

    Because if your internet connection is messed up or isolated (like in a coffee shop before you log in) your computer cannot validate that the certificate Evernote is using is authentic, so it warns you. It is the same warning you'd get if it really was fraudulent, but Windows shows the same thing regardless of why it cannot authenticate it. That isn't an Evernote thing. Outlook and other apps do the same thing.

    Oh, I see. Thank you for clarifying that. At least I'll know what to do next time. thanks.
