Screenshot from the new Evernote for Mac


We’re excited to share the all-new Evernote app for Mac. The new app provides a more modern appearance and streamlined Evernote experience.

Some notable features include:

  • Improved note editor. More control over headings and a standardized font selection means your notes will look the same everywhere.
  • New note button. Click the button to create a new text note, or click the arrow to quickly access templates.
  • Faster search. See real-time suggestions as you type and narrow your search results with filters.
  • Reimagined sketch. Use your mouse to draw and take handwritten notes.
  • Dark mode. Dark mode makes reading and writing easier on your eyes.

In addition, we’ve made improvements to several other functions such as note merging, multi-select, internal note links, and view options.

How do I get the new app?

To download the new version of Evernote, visit or the App Store on your Mac. If you already have Evernote installed on your computer, the new installer will walk you through the process of updating to the new version.

Why am I unable to see the update in the App Store?

The update may take some time to propagate through the App Store. In addition, make sure you are on macOS 10.14 or later, as the new Evernote app does not support older versions of macOS.

How can I tell which version of the app I’m using?

A quick way to tell if you’re using the new Evernote app is to compare your app to the photo you see in this article. Notably, the new app has a new, larger "New note" button.

In addition, you can verify the version number by going to Evernote > About Evernote from the menu bar, and looking at the bottom of the "About Evernote" window. The new Evernote app is version 10.0.
