Evernote CEO said that stability fixes are coming soon

Posted Jan 5, 2014

Evernote has been growing at a rapid pace over the last few years,but their software has become less stable. Blogger Jason Kincaid wrote a blog post detailing what is wrong with Evernote. Evernote CEO Phil Libin agreed that Kincaid was right and promised that the app will be fixed.

“Browser extensions crash, text cursors leap haphazardly across the screen ? my copy of Evernote?s image editor Skitch silently failed to sync for months,” said Kincaid in a blog post.

“I got the wrong sort of birthday present yesterday: a sincerely-written post by Jason Kincaid lamenting a perceived decline in the quality of Evernote software over the past few months. I could quibble with the specifics, but reading Jason?s article was a painful and frustrating experience because, in the big picture, he?s right. We?re going to fix this,” wrote Evernote CEO Phil Libin in a blog post. Libin said that Evernote may have lost core functionality when creating new features and expanding their user base. Evernote launched a company-wide effort to improve quality in code a couple months ago. However, the launch of iOS 7 made things more tricky.

“Over the next few months, we?ll be releasing new versions of all the apps that incorporate our many lessons learned about what does and doesn?t work. All of our apps will be getting significant improvements and simplifications to the user experience starting in the next few weeks. The five most important areas of improvement that we?re targeting on all platforms are note editing, navigation, search, sync and collaboration,” added Libin.
