Evernote 5.2 For iOS Crashes On Startup, But There’s A Fix [PSA]



It’s a bad week for app updates. Hot on the heels of an epic Kindle for iOS bug that wiped out users’ e-book libraries comes a bug affecting version 5.2 of Evernote, which causes the app to crash upon startup. Luckily, it’s a simple fix.

Quoth Evernote:

We are aware that some users are experiencing crashes on upgrade. We are testing a fix for this issue and will get a new version to you as quickly as possible. In the meantime, uninstalling and reinstalling the app should resolve the issue. We apologize for the inconvenience.

So until Evernote fixes what the heck’s going on, all you need to do is press on the Evernote icon until it starts to jiggle, tap the ‘x’ to delete it, then reinstall it from the Mac App Store. Simple!

    You just saved my day. Evernote is a most used app on my iPhone and crashing on startup made me sick. Now i just reinstalled it fresh and it works again. Thanks a bunch!

    Don’t you mean from the iOS app store? The Mac app store would install Evernote to your Mac computer, for example your Macbook Pro, iMac, or Mac mini.
