ios Evernote Sync Error

203 posts in this topic

Just updated to the new evernote version and now I'm having trouble syncing certain notes. Evernote will try syncing for a long time before popping out that there was a problem syncing. Going to sync errors displays this:

Note title: Note Name

Description: Could not make HTTP request

Reason: Could not sync note 'note name'.

iOS version 5.1.1

BTW: I'm noticing sync problems with evernote food as well

Edit November 12, 730pm: Evernote food is having unusually long sync times

Same thing happened to me, but i fully closed the app (double-click HOME button and then tap the red minus sign on the evernote app).

When I relaunched, it synched no problem.

Same thing happened to me with my iPhone 4 / iPad 2 on iOS 6.0.1 (Evernote 5.0.0).

But the relaunch trick doesn't work for me.

Same thing happened to me with my iPhone 5 on iOS 6.0.1 (Evernote 5.0.0). Also, "Could not make HTTP request" problem. I hope the Evernote team can fix this problem as soon as possible. Thanks a lot.

Adding my voice to the chorus: I'm experiencing the same error - Could not make HTTP request - in Evernote 5.0 on iOS 6.1 (on iPad, if relevant). Tried closing the app with no luck.

So any update everybody? I have no problem downloading changes from my laptop, but it's uploading from my iphone4s/ipad2 to evernote servers which is bugged up. I've got a backlog up notes on my phone which I cannot loose, but now can't access anywhere.

Same issue here. Have taken some photos on my iPad to place in to a note, and it keeps complaining about this issue.

Support provided by Evernote (which worked for me):

If you have any "Pending" notes, click the "Pending" tab (iPhone/iPod) or go to the "Pending Synchronization" section (iPad).

  • Copy the content of each note to your iOS Mail program and email them to your Evernote email address (do NOT attempt to email via Evernote).
  • Check your Camera Roll to ensure that any pending Image Notes have been auto-saved. If not, use the built in iOS "Screenshot" function to preserve Image Notes to your Camera Roll.
  • Uninstall Evernote from your device.
  • Reboot your device.
  • Download the latest version of Evernote via the AppStore.

This worked for 2 uploads before it bugged up again. And now I have to re-download all my uploaded notes. Should have waited for a month before updating.

The same with me (iPhone 4, "new" iPad ), please test the new version of Evernote properly next time. Cannot upload any photo and wasted 2 hours with solving problem you had made. The worst thing is that I cannot easily get back an older functional version of Evernote to my devices and have to wait until the update is made. :-(((

I'm having same issue -- klunky update and fails on iphone4. Contacted 'support' but they didn't resolve my problem. I uninstalled app and reinstalled app. it worked again for about 15 minutes before failing again on photo upload. I'm a premium member. Thinking about canceling my account for my company over this. Very frustrating that there's no support for premium members.

OK, well I like some of the new look of the app, but this sync issue is definitely a problem. First started after I added some pictures to a note last night on my iPhone 5 iOS 6.1. Now I'm stuck in limbo on that one and the workaround from EverNote above is a joke.

I've been back and forth with them today on this. I tried emptying the trash and that worked...for about an hour. problem is back again. The windows client is also acting klunky as well and failing to sync. it's only on notes that contain photos. Regular text notes are working fine.

Same thing for me. I'm a premium user. I will try to hang on and hope they can fix this bug.

I'm having the same problem, but I'm on Evernote v4. (I installed v5 then rolled back when I realized how bad it was.)

I just purchased a month subscription to see how Evernote will work out, but I'm having the same issue reported by the original topic creator.

Running on the iPad 3 (ios 6.0), it has no problem received synced data, but when I take a picture and it auto-syncs, I get the unable to make Http request error. If I keep trying, it (may) eventually work.

I have no problems using the desktop client to sync.

I have deleted, and re installed it multiple times, to the same effect after one or two upload successes.

I love the software, and I'd like to continue to use it, but this may make it unusable or me.

I opened a support ticket and have submitted my activity log. I'll see how that goes.

If anyone find a solution, please let us know.

This is the response I got today:

"We're showing that you are attempting to upload some notes to Linked notebooks - these linked notebooks may be at their quota limit, or have become unshared with your account somehow. Can you please try logging into your account from a desktop computer, unlinking any shared notebooks from your account, then try syncing these notes again to one of your own notebooks?"

I had plenty of space in my account.

That didn't solve problem.

Same problem. Premium Member since 12 Mar 2008.

I had re-installed Evernote on iOS yesterday (for a different reason - deselecting offline notebooks wasn't reducing my App size, and it was taking up 1.2GB of my 16GB iPad ... so a reinstall seemed the fastest way).

I'm now getting the error:

Synchronisation failed:

An unexpected error occurred while synchronising with the Evernote service.

Synchronization Errors

Note title: [ XXX]

Description: Could not make HTTP request

Reason: Could not sync note '[XXX]'.

Any update on a fix other than a re-install?

[update 19 Nov 2012]

After a few hours the sync seemed to work itself through, and the app is syncing with the Evernote service as normal. For reference, it was a single note which contained 4 in-note photos.

I have an ipad 3 and iPhone 4. Both running latest iOS and Evernote premium. Both exhibit the same problem as everyone else here. I am starting to lose confidence in the quality control prior to release of new software with these guys. I remember being the one that discovered the conflict with CloudOn in the last release. It seems that every release has a show stopping bug. This one is huge and really might just kill it for me. If there was another service that I could forklift my data to (even at a higher price) I would now. I have had enough.
