New iOS editor very slow?

Idea

Is anyone else having trouble with the note editor using the new version? Editing plain text with simplified formatting is excruciating -- after each keypress is about 750 milliseconds of dead time before a response.

 

I don't see any posts about this -- is it just me?

There are other posts, but I'm not having problems

Can you walk me through an editing session so that I can duplicate the steps

I had very laggy typing with v7 on the iPad.  Back to normal typing with v8.  Now getting to typing actually takes forever with v8.  :(

Anybody who says lag doesn't exist in version 8 is kidding themselves.  Here are the steps to replicate:

 

1. Start a new note.  

2. Observe massive lag as you try to do anything in the note

The entire iOS app that was just updated seems very slow and buggy to me. I having a hard time trying to use the app. Perhaps this is an issue with specific devices? The entire app is slow and sluggish now. I open the app, try to click the notes icon and I have to wait a few seconds for the app to respond. I have an iPhone SE which isn't the slowest phone on the market.

If I get as far as editing a note, there's huge lag. 

The app is too slow and crashes too often to ever open a note though.

This new version is very, very slow ! I'm using a iPad Pro with 250 G of memory. When I open Evernote it takes a few seconds before I can open a note, scroll down notes or search for a specific notes. Even if I try to open a new note for editing from inside Evernote or from the To Day widget, it takes a few seconds to respond. Really annoying!

Please, tell us what is happening !!!!

 

Thanks.

The update for the IPAD is the worst I've ever seen. I am also having the lagging issues. Every time I try to enter a note, I'm keep getting unable to sync message. Notes are stuck and won't synchronize, slow response, too many issues. My productivity has taken a huge hit and I'm now considering another program to switch.

Not quite this bad but I am seeing a typing lag or sponginess.  Clearing the cash seemed to help for a short while.  Have occasionally noticed slow response in note access as well (iPad mini 4)

My iPad Air is experiencing slow response: i tap a note card in the left column. The title of the note appears relatively quickly, but the body of the note lags about a second or two before displaying. This is new since the updated interface. Before I had no complaints about response. Felt very fast.

On the otherhand, Evernote is still fast on my iPhone SE. Maybe its a difference in processors? 

Both are working with offline notebooks. I tried turning off offline notebooks and the reenabling but it didn't make a difference. That said, i might. Ot have waited long enough for the iPad to clear the memory.

I'm having exactly the same problem. I just gave the app a 2 star review in iOS App Store because of this. I'm using an iPhone 7 256 GB so things should be super fast, but it's super laggy instead.

Seems that different people are seeing different effects from the latest iOS update. I'm sure Evernote tested and retested the update. But my experience with software development tells me that "stuff happens" - stuff that is totally outside of what can be tested for. For example, Evernote is slow on my iPad, but fast on my iPhone. And slow on your iPhone, Gallagher. 

So that kind of variability means a fix will take a while. Longer than the 3 days that Shaun evidently expects. This isn't caused by a typo in the programming code, it's a lot more complex. It's important to make these things known, with as much detail as you can provide. if you hang in there a while, a fix will come along. If you can't, well good luck elsewhere.

Something to think about: about 6 months ago, I thought Apple notes would be better than Evernote. Apple notes was working just great when I had 50 or 60 notes, but when I imported about 2000 notes from Evernote, Apple notes slowed down to unusable. And then I was glad I kept my evernote account.  So I'm going to hang in with evernote for awhile. I'm pretty sure they'll have some suggestions.

I hate this version.  I have over 1500 notes, before I could leave a note and next time I opened Evernote it would still be there.  On iPad it closes then even putting in shortcuts or favourites I have to wait for it to open again.  As well as work, I use for creating knitting patterns which are then saved as PDFs - It is a nightmare having to reopen to see next part of pattern.  I would also like the recent list longer. I have used Evernote for over ten years.

Must agree - very slow. Lag problem starting a new note, as above, replicated too. System blackout also happening too often. (iPad mini). I thought this update was supposed to bring much faster speeds.

My app was very slow on my iPad, deleting and reinstalling fixed it.

I tried this too, running iPad Pro, iOS 10.2.1, I deleted Evernote, closed all apps, restarted my iPad, and reinstalled Evernote 8.0.2.351745.

I let it fully sync (working / downloading spinner at top left stopped spinning) and then tried it.

 

Initially, pages of notes i'd never loaded on the new install were slow to load (i mostly have handwritten notes, which are all images in evernote and lots of snapshots of whiteboards and projector images too). But as i reloaded notes having loaded them once, they popped back on the screen without the same lag i had before. It matches the zippiness that my iPhone SE was already displaying notes with, and is probably at the speed i'd come to expect images/notes to display in Evernote in Version 7. 

There are certainly still things that can be improved in this version, but the delete, restart, reinstall improved lag-time performance for me. Give this a try.

I had no editing slowness with 8.0 or 8.0.1 but then with 8.0.2, wham, it slowed to a crawl.  Before going through the uninstall reinstall dance I just did a full power down of my phone and at least for now that seems to have worked.

I was just googling to see if anyone else had this problem. I have a premium account over iOS, android and Windows. 

The Windows one is still just about usable as long as i don't try and use web clipper. 

The Android one is unusable, the iOS one has some severe problems. I'm at a trade fair and just gave my iPad to a potential customer to type in her email and the keyboard didn't function at all so I had to get her to write it down on a scrap of paper. 

After closing it all down and opening it up again I can now type with a lot of lag,  but this isn't good at all and it's been getting steadily worse for some time and seems to do so with each software upgrade. 

I'm using an Air 2.

I agree, version 8 is terrible on my iPhone 6. It was fine before, but now it is approaching unusable (genuinely). It can take upwards of 2 seconds for the notebook list to start scrolling (i.e. I'm dragging my finger up and down the screen but the list ain't moving), 2 seconds to open a notebook after clicking, sometimes as much as 8 seconds of finger-dragging before the note list starts to scroll, you get the idea. In every area I've tried so far it is terrible.

I have used EN for maybe five years, have >4000 notes and maybe 10 notebooks, some of which I want available offline (which doesn't seem to be working either on my iPhone). I can't rely on it like this. 

I will stick with it for a while in the hope that it gets back to its former zippiness, but at the moment it's not good people.

Yes! I was having distressingly long response to all aspects. Deleting and reinstalling was my last resort, but that seems to have fixed it. Thanks.

Update: This did not fix the editor problem. Cannot use editor at all as it freezes up after just a few words. Also, after a few days I notice Evernote slowing down again. Looks like soon I'll be back to the same lag. Cache problem?

I had to delete then reinstall the new version just to get it to work in the first place.  I DO NOT want to have to do it again.

As others have stated, on my IPad Air2 opening a note, choosing a notebook, editing a note, selecting a tag, just about anything I try to do involves at least a 5-10 second delay or more.  I have roughly 600 notes, none of them huge by any stretch.

This is getting so frustrating.  I used to love Evernote but it is quickly leaving a sour taste.  Used it so much I upgraded to the middle level. 

Please EN team, fix these problems.

I have to agree with the brutally slow speed of this latest version of ForeverNote.  I'm using a 6S-Plus, and there should be no lag when typing a note, but it's ridiculously slow.  If I select a line and delete that text, Evernote stops for at least 5 seconds while I wait for it to regain it's marbles!  Brutally slow to the point were I must find something else to replace it.  I'm hanging on, waiting for a major update, but if it doesn't come soon, I'll transfer everything to a project management software or use 'Notes' that comes with the iOS.   Right now, ForEverNote is my biggest mobile device frustration, and that's saying something!!

You can use Notes by Apple. But it may lack the functionality of what EverNote offers.

Try to delete and reinstall Evernote, it may resolve the issue. Give it a try before you decided to give up.

I am finding in v8.0.3.351959 running on an iPad Pro with a multi-thousand note Premium account, the content of which is downloaded for local storage:

1. Creating a new note allows keyboard text entry only after a several second lag (or sometimes not at all - the app will periodically freeze). This applies even after a power down and power up of the iPad Pro.

2. Moving from one note to another is much slower than in previous Evernote versions - the body text of notes appears only after a few seconds of delay/lag

3. text pasted into a note only appears after a sync has completed.

4. Syncs are slower than usual

5. Searches are slower than usual

My iPad Air 2 is very slow and I have tried re-installing to no avail. But my iPhone 4 is almost too slow to use and I have updated to the latest version 8.03 in the hope this might have improved! Not only is it slow but it freezes. This has been re-installed too.

This should have been sorted out before release.

Evernote was the best thing around. Is there anyway getting version 7 back?

MASSIVELY slow, to the point that I've gone back to making notes longhand when there's any urgency. And it happens every single time I click back into the app, not just opening a new note. There's a minimum of a 10-second delay every time I return to the app. Just nothing - no movement, no cursor, no response to typing. Does Evernote bother to test these big release's performance at all before they send it out?

There is no trick to replicating this bug - I think everyone on this thread agrees that it happens every time you try to do anything in the app on an iPhone (or iPad in some cases). I worked in QA, so I'm familiar with your needs re: reporting a bug, but the onus here is not on us users: it's a persistent behavior across iOS on many devices that happens every time we use the app. Period. No special steps. I click the Evernote icon, there is a 10-second lag. I close the app and re-open it. 10-second lag. I try to type in the open app: 10-second lag. You get the idea.

I have now had to leave Evernote after using it for several years.  It has become so slow, it's of no use to me.  It lags and stalls and stops responding for several seconds when editing and hangs far too long while I'm trying to get work done.  I have switched to OneNote and it's working like a charm.  And it has more usable features that I appreciate 

I'm sad to go Evernote, but clearly there are issues with your platform.

Yes this is happening to me to.  Happens only on my IOS devices.  I used to prefer using the IOS app over the desktop.  But for me, now the desktop app is much faster.

Every keystroke is a 5-10 second delay.  My IOS devices are new IPad Air2 and iPhone 7.  My iMac is 6-7years old and English the EN app runs faster.  I've been using Evernote for 8 years and this is causing to consider switching.  OneNote is interesting to me.

Okay, I feel relieved that the problem also happens in newer machines. I was thinking that it might have been because of my (relatively old) iPad (2013).

 

Dear Evernote team, we understand that you may need time to think about how to solve this issue and improve user experience. We trust you.

However, could you do that after first reverting back to the previous version (well in fact for me v7 was slow too) -- or perhaps providing some direct links for users to download older versions if that's at all possible?

Evernote 8 is currently poor on my iPad Air 2, unusable on  my iPhone 4. In UK friends and colleagues have a similar problem -  it does affect just a few users here as claimed!

I have been a happy user of Evernote for four years.

The latest promotion says it is faster than ever! Who would upgrade??

I hope this is sorted out - I need this for work too so in a week, I will have to look for an alternative :-(

Talking directly to Evernote here: 

First, you have a problem on your hands. Second, your response is inadequate as it has been on previous issues you've had with shoddily tested releases (one of which I personally know you had to roll back). 

So a.) a big mea culpa "we didn't test this properly" is in order - instead of, "the onus is on you, our customers, to prove the problem and fix it yourselves" + very little follow up communication on threads like these where customers are leaving, and b.) get a real Q&A team or test bed or whatever is missing that this, um, "stuff" keeps happening and alienating your paying customers. 

(I'm still waiting on the fix for all the basic formatting you broke with your last desktop release btw. Man.)

Never mind my comment about v7 -- looking back at the version history, v7 was okay and actually one of the best, at least until some of the latest updates near the end of 2016.

Dear all,

I am a heavy user of Evernote (MacBook, Windows (work) PC and Iphone and was quite worried when the new Iphone release was launched. Problems: very slow response or even non responding, when turning the Iphone from landscape to portrait notes were lost and notes entered when not connected to internet also were lost. 

Resolution: remove and re-install the app on your Iphone and everything works again, I am :Dagain

I install and reinstall and still it is pretty hopeless. I am using the latest v8.0.4 on iPhone 4. I click and count as it opens a text note. I write and wait to see a sentence typed out some time later. Only Evernote is slow on my iPhone. I have had no option to look for something which works and start to migrate my files...

I was happy with Evernote 7 which worked well. Can I have it back, please?

Great features, apparently. Evernote you really need to test your products properly before releasing them. I hope you read your pages.

yes, same situation here. I would appreciate if you fix it ASAP, I love Evernote mobile version for 4 years until Nightmare version 8....

10 seconds exactly!! who would wait for you to take simple telephone/ address for 10 seconds!

I disable all the network, both wifi and cellular data. I get back to Evernote again and boom! It runs smooth as silk! I have got my lovely Evernote back✌?

would this problem hang onto the network? I see the app "loading" all the time when I connect to my network, both wifi and cellular

I ended up deleting the Evernote app, downloaded and reinstalled it again and it's working better.  It's not as fast as it used to be, but the reinstalled app is better.  

I have also installed Microsoft's OneNote and it seems to run well.  I actually like it because of the sectional tabs.  But the desktop version decided to stop syncing.  Ironically, Dropbox announced "Dropbox Paper" today, which may have some features geared towards keeping notes synced across devices.  

Evernote has (or had) a good thing going but I'm thankful I didn't invest in a full paid account.  I was about to because I have an additional laptop, but because of this, it'll be a while  before I would consider paying for this service.  

Definately delete the app, reinstall it and log into your account to re-sync your notes.  It will likely improve its performance enough to use it while we all wait for an update and fixes.  

Relax...

I agree, seems to be persistent and slow. After Evernote and iOS update, Evernote is super slow when the app is opened. Takes a good 10 seconds to be able to tap and get a response. Especially painful if one is on a call, in a meeting and need to access a note.  Is it network related? Why is Evernote insisting on going back to network if I have 'use while disconnected'.  The delay is really cumbersome and makes the app not usable as designed.

All of 8 has run very slow for me, especially while syncing or starting a new note but 8.1 brought about crashes when I try to scan documents. It will bring up the camera and capture a picture, but the app crashes while formatting the document for the note 100% of the time. Is anyone else having the crashes as well, or just slowdowns? If I scan and format a document in another app and send it to Evernote everything works great, it's just while it reorients the picture in the Evernote app that it crashes

I'm having the same problem. No issues with my Mac laptop or iMac. My Macbook Pro I'm currently using is on OS X Yosemite version 10.10.5, and I'm not having issues with anything on my computer, JUST Evernote. It used to work perfectly, I'm on the Premium version, and all of a sudden it all slowed down to a crawl. There is a 1-2 second delay in typing, which is rendering it useless since I use Evernote to generate written pieces and posts for my business. HELP??? What's going on? Anyone know how to fix it?

Same problems here. Use Evernote constantly for memos. 

I was using Simplenote before and that had a great sync between iPhone and MacBook Pro. 

This Evernote just seems super slow and basically useless.

Will try re-installing evernote on both devices, if doesn't work I'll move back to Simplenote.

All-in-all Evernote is a bit too heavy these days since it's nearly incorporating Slack and Word into on note taking app...

I will also report that my Evernote (v8.1.352228) is too slow to the point of being useless on my iPhone 6 and iPad mini 2. I have tried reinstalling the app, but it did not resolve the issue.

I have used Evernote (premium member) in three years and was very satisfied with this excellent app until the version 8. I hate to go over to another app because Evernote has so many good features, such as an excellent web clipper, cross platform sync, etc. This extreme slowness is a killer. I hope this issue will be soon resolved. 

Best regards,

Aleksandar

My problem begins when I initiate a search for a note using iOS 10.2.1. on a 64GB 6 Plus.

The screen is extremely slow to respond to inputed data; this began with last Evernote update.

The app has become a pain in the *** to use. I'm currently investigating alternative apps. :(

What's wrong with the keyboard?  It covers the notes, won't allow scrolling, won't go away.  Ridiculous!

You can try deleting Evernote and reinstalling it. Be sure you sync up your date first, then delete the app, go to your app store and reinstall.  This may give you some speed back... but it won't last long.  Eventually it get's slower and slower as time goes on until you can't stand looking at the app any longer.  Delete it, reinstall and try again. 

This used to be one of the greatest tools I used for all the organizing and media I needed to keep tabs on, but now its a total frustration and makes my days worse.  I can't stand it! 

Sadly, Evernote has offered no responses or words of encouragement that a re-write is coming. Nothing!  And that just adds more frustration to the whole mess. 

I have moved on to OneNote.  It sync's well with ALL my devices, allows for organizing information logically and also the use of visual tabs helps.  The great thing is, it works FAST.  I can jump into that OneNote App, take notes, adjust notes and it's instant.  With Evernote, I was waiting and waiting and waiting for the app to come alive and that's embarrassing when you're in a meeting or working with a client. And it's so frustrating when you're on the move, in a hurry and then you can't move forward until Evernote wakes up. 

No more... I'm out! It's just not worth hanging on any longer. It's been months and no response from "ForeEverNote".  If you don't care, why should I ?

Same here, dog slow on same version (8.1.352228). After loading, I cannot use it for 30 secs. Then, when creating a note of receipts, takes 20-30 secs for each receipt to be added to the note; I'm left with my iPhone hovering over the next receipt, waiting for Evernote to store the previous and make the camera ready. All my other apps are behaving normally. I have 35 Notebooks containing 235 Notes. Small.

I also experience extreme slowness / laggy response times throughout the evernote application on iOS. I am using the latest version of the app.

These including text / photo input on new notes, navigation to specific notebooks, navigation to search, navigation to tags. Overall the performance of the app leaves a lot to be desired. Get it together and fix this Evernote.

Very slow my iPhone 6, especially when adding a photo. Also, opening of the keyboard lags.

I've been an avid Evernote user since 2008 and had Evernote Pro subscription for the past few years. I've been patient with the whole increase in cost given the superior offerings however this iOS lag issue is the last straw. Creating and editing a note is excruciatingly slow.  I too am looking at alternatives even though I'm not a big fan of Microsoft solutions. Google Keep works really well but I can't export Evernote content to that.  Anybody out there completely make the switch?

I've had to copy and paste my notes out of Evernote.  I have a lot of notes in Dropbox now, that are accessible from all my devices. And I have a backup of those files and notes that is archived with my TimeMachine backup.  If I'm going to spend money on a cloud service, it might as well be with Dropbox that also saves my smartphone photos and so much more.  I've used Evernote for a long time but it's so frustrating now that I can't stand using it. And Evernote keeps strolling along like there is nothing wrong.

Dear Evernote,

Don't you think it's about time to start communicating that you;

- acknowledge the fact that the IOS iphone app is not performing as expected

- inform what your plans are to fix this (what, how and when)

For me it would work if the old version would be available, that worked very well (fast, responsive, doing what an Iphone app should do).

I am a very heavy user (MacBookPro, WindowsPC and Iphone), the moments you use the Iphone app is when you want to;

- quickly check a note

- quickly add a new note (in order to enhance / complete it on the laptop/PC later on)

- quickly change some minor things when you are on the move (reminder date, small remark etc.)

The way the current app is performing stops me doing just that :-(

Please be aware that most of the Evernote users are organized and structured people who have tried quite some solutions out there.

The reason why I (and I think most users) did not switch is that Evernote is a super tool as it's working on IOS, Windows, mobile devices and and on a functional level well thought through.

..... take these loyal users on board and communicate your plans to them..... don't make them run away, that would be a pity.

Regards,

Patrick

I have started to look for an alternative to Evernote. I thought first to use OneNote, but it is a terrible web clipper. Search function on Evernote is much better than OneNote. Besides I am not much a fan for Microsoft.

I have tried Keep, but it seems that it is not possible to make web clips with it on iOS devices. Web clipping and Search are for me most important features, together with a possibility to have an access to notes on the web. Evernote was a great product because it had a superb web clipping feature combined with note managment/organisation and syncing. But it is terribly slow! It is very hard to find an alternative.

Rigt now I am exploring the possibility to use Together from Reinvented Software or Yojimbo from Bare Bones Software, since I am only using Apple products and do not need a cross-platform note managment software. Both those products advertise many features that Evernote has. I have not yet tested those softwares, but it seems that Together can import painlessly all notes from Evernote! I have been familiar with Bare Bones Software in many years because their BBEdit is the best professional HTML and text editor for macOS, but I have not yet tried their Yojimbo.

Best regards,
Aleksandar

For what it's worth, I've been trying to work through things with customer support and they have promised that a new update will be published to fix the slowdowns in the next couple of days. Like many of the rest of you, I've used other productivity apps and they've all paled in comparison to the previous version of Evernote. Just keep your fingers crossed along with me that it's true and we get a functional update asap.

Maybe there is no reason to wait for the update.

Did you try to delete the app and reload it from the store?

Worked for me on an iPad Air 2. I use Evernote Premium.

Good luck!

EverNote is not providing any updates at this moment to the loyal users. They had a superb software but now everything seems to be falling apart.

Software updates are provided to all users; loyal and disloyal.  They recently released  version 8.1 and a new release is imminent 

Users may want to stay at v7 until the initial v8 issues are resolved

When I open the app, I cannot click on anything for a few seconds, very annoying. But after that waiting time, the app works well. I experience this problem both on my iphone6 and iPad Pro since v8. I still use Evernote for about everything in my digital life but it would be really nice if this issue was solved.

The slowness of this version has disappeared! I'm using an iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 10.3...problem solved?

I just updated iOS to 10.3 and the problem I mentioned two posts earlier is not resolved. It seems when I open the app, Evernote does not allow me to click on anything while performing its sync and after the sync will work properly without lag. Too bad I have to go through this every time I use the app. Anybody having the same issue?
