Multi-Platform Accessibility - Evernote shines when it comes to accessibility as it is available across various platforms. Whether you're using a computer (Mac or PC), a tablet, or a smartphone (iOS or Android), you can enjoy seamless access to all your notes.
Web Clipping Features - Evernote's Web Clipper is a powerful tool that allows you to grab and save content from web pages - text, images, or even the whole page, which you can then annotate and store in your notebook.
Search Functionality - Evernote's advanced search capabilities are a key feature. You can easily locate specific content within large amounts of text, images, handwriting, PDFs, and even in Word documents or other digital files you've stored in the software.
Integration with Other Tools - Evernote integrates well with many other productivity and business tools like Google Drive, Slack, Microsoft Teams and Outlook, which means you can share your notes and collaborate with others directly from the app.
Templates and Formatting Options - Another standout feature of Evernote is its ability to offer pre-made templates for different types of content or meeting notes, along with various formatting tools. This not only saves time but also provides consistency across your notes.
Limited Formatting Options - Evernote does not offer as extensive formatting tools as some other note-taking software do. Its formatting toolbar is basic, it may be difficult to create complex layouts or to customize notes with specific branding or coloring.
Limited Collaboration Features - Evernote does not offer real-time synching and collaboration features. When multiple users are working on a single note, changes must be sync manually, which can lead to confusion and inconsistency in the information.
Learning Curve - The interface, while intuitive to some, can take time to get used to for new users. The variety of options and tools can be overwhelming and it might take time for users to become proficient with the software.
Lack of Built-in Presentation Tools - Evernote does not have built-in presentation tools. While it does allow users to create slides, these are very basic and lack the functionality and professional feel of dedicated presentation software.
File Attachment Limitations - Evernote limits the size of individual notes, which includes any attached files. Hence, users may not be able to upload larger files like large images, lengthy documents or extensive spreadsheets. This could limit the usefulness of Evernote for some users who often work with large sized files.
