Finally. After more than a year Evernote has finally figured out how to make its Evernote Touch App work on the Surface RT and the Surface 2. A recent update seems to have fixed the bugs that caused the App to crash when loading or attempting to sync that many users were experiencing. To call it maddening for an Evernote fan would be an understatement. After downloading the update today I was finally able to sync all of my notes into the Evernote Touch App and use them accordingly.
I and other users had been issues complaints and bug reports to Evernote since the release of the original Surface RT. Like it has done with other mobile platforms Evernote was one of the first major developers to issue an App for Windows RT. Sadly the App did not work for many. To be fair, others did get the App to work, but there were still some who were as perplexed as I was. Including Evernote engineers.
The Evernote App has been working fine in the non RT versions of Windows 8 and 8.1.
Last fall Evernote ran into other difficulties with some of its Apps and services, prompting CEO Phil Libin to call for a back to basics approach that focused on improving the core experience for existing users, rather than continually adding new features and services.
Evernote has also recently updated its iOS and Android Apps adding a few new features including making it easier to move a note by listing the most recently used notebooks at the top of the list of notebooks. The updates are available via the iTunes App Store, Google Play, and the Windows Store.
