Frequently asked questions


How do I install the Evernote widget directly from the Play Store?

The Evernote widget is no longer a separate app and is now built into the Evernote app. Update your Evernote app to version 7.2 or later from the Play Store to access the widget.


Can I go back to the old widget if I prefer using that version?

The old Evernote widget is no longer available.


How come I'm only able to see the 1 x 1 Evernote widget option?

Evernote needs to be installed on internal device memory to access the 4 x 1 or 4 x 2 widget options. To move the app, go to Settings > Apps > Evernote and move the app from the SD card to the internal device memory.


How do I get the 'Dark' theme on my widget?

The 'Dark' theme is only available on the 4 x 2 widget. Tap the gear button to access the 'Customize Widget' page, then select the 'Dark' theme and tap Save.
