This thread was originally posted in 2012. Seems to be a theme with Evernote that basic functionality is just left behind. Given the dirth of improvements to Evernote over the years, I often wonder whether it reflects Evernote's development incompetence or the company's struggle to stay alive.

There are ways to make a request that reflect a higher level of politeness.

I see this request has a voting level of ....2  this doesn't reflect a high level of user interest.

For those supporting this request, please up vote it, using the controls at the upper left corner of this discussion.

There are numerous post about this and people like me did not even notice this voting button. The voting level doesn't remove the fact that it's a very basic functionality missing, yet it should be mandatory. Should take maybe a day of work to add it. Yet it's still missing after all those years, pretty crazy IMO.

In the Android forum found discussion this proposed workaround: To copy a row from a template containing table rows with varying number of columns (see link below) and paste the copied row below the table in your note.

Here's a template example you can use: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s239/sh/7bb4945c-34dd-492d-a7b8-2ee4deed8314/90ddec1421a0abe01429dbcb4db78fc5

Inspired by this, I selected the last row in a table (using my iPhone), copied it, then pasted it. 
My attempts resulted in varying degrees of success. Try it!

I needed to insert a Table in a note, using my iPad, and found this was not possible using the iOS version of Evernote. The online advice suggested first creating a note with Evernote's online version, making and saving a Table to this note, and then later using this note as a Template. This is also not possible, as the iOS web browser (Safari) is not supported either. Very frustrating that this has been here for nearly 5 years with no change.

The Mac/Windows platforms are much better at table processing than the iOS platforms.

I did find I could log in using Safari on my ipad.
When you get the "not supported" message, switch to the desktop site by holding down the refresh button (curved arrow at the end of the url space)
Its not a great experience, but does allow you to create a table.

I need this feature too - its basic ... Without it EverNote really won't do what I need (despite all its other great features)

I'd have to agree with everyone else here.  I was just looking for a way to do this and can't seem to find a way.  Really??

I second that and I have just voted, hope that others do as well!

I too would love to have this functionality.

I was able to copy and paste a row in an existing table.

First I had to figure out how to enable tables in my settings but it did work.

In my case I always use tables, and not being able to edit them from my iPad is an important limitation that can't understand why it is not implemented yet.

I just press on TAB on my iPad Pro at the last cell of the last row and a new row is being inserted - I'm wondering how to do this on my iPhone...

It's the same, Tab key

Of course you have to be using a keyboard with a Tab key.
I'm using an Logitech K811 bluetooth keyboard
