You can use Evernote with the help of Siri. Simply activate Siri and ask her to perform a task in Evernote. Siri can:

  • Create a new note
  • Create a note with a task list
  • Add to an existing note
  • Add to an existing task list
  • Search for notes in Evernote

Note: The new Evernote for iOS does not support using Siri.



Use Siri to create a brand new note. Siri can create text notes from your voice input, so try something like, "Hey Siri, create a 'Meeting ideas' note in Evernote."


Use Siri to add text to an existing note. If you already have a note or task list in Evernote, you can simply tell Siri to add more text. "Add 'Order lunch' to my 'Meeting ideas' note in Evernote."


Use Siri to search for a note in your Evernote account. Siri searches note titles, notebook names, tag names, and stack names. Siri also understands inferred date ranges, so you can say something like "Show me what notes I created in Evernote last week," or "Show me what notes I updated in Evernote today."

Siri Shortcuts

With Siri Shortcuts, you can create custom voice commands to view a note, notebook, space, or saved search; create a new camera note or audio note; copy a note link to the clipboard; or print the current note.

For example, create a daily to-do list note that you’d like to open at the beginning of each day. Set up a Siri Shortcut to open that note every time you say, "What do I need to focus on today?"

To save a Siri Shortcut:

  1. Open a note, notebook, space, or saved search.
  2. Tap the Options menu (three dots) at the top right.
  3. Select Create a Siri Shortcut.
  4. Record a custom voice command for Siri to recognize.

You can view shortcut settings and suggested shortcuts by opening the iOS Settings app and navigating to Siri & Search > Evernote.

Do I have to use specific commands or sentence structure with Siri?
