Hi,
I did a research on internet and this forum but could not find any thread about this.
after the Lollipop update on my HTC One M7 HTC Notes was removed and when I try to open it I am adviced to download Evernote.
I installed, created a username but I am not able to get my old notes.

Is there any way to get them back? I need them

If you sync your notes to evernote than you can get them back else no

If you did not create an Evernote account BEFORE the Lollipop update, most likely your notes were not backed up by Evernote. So there is no way to recover them.

Outrageous
WTF? I just updated as well and found I was unable to view my notes using the HTC Notes app. I followed the instructions to create an Evernote account and downloaded the app. I only got 7 of my notes back.

Someone from HTC should explain how to recover the notes. What are they thinking when they delete people's work during an update and force them into using an app they don't want or need!?

This is disgusting behaviour.

HTC - explanation please?

If you want explanations from HTC then ask them directly. Do you really think they will answer any of your question here?

I got evernotes and all htc notes have got migrated to evernotes. now Notes application is still present in my phone and i am unable to remove it from there. not option available to uninstall. When i click to open, it go to playstore and opens all notes in evernote itself. Could some one tell me if you have faced this issue and resolved it.

Didn't notice that before you mentioned it. Weird, but seems that's the order of things for now. Just use Evernote.

htc notes is a system app so you can only remove it if you have an unsecured kernel or using a custom recovery. Removing system app will result with not being able to install future ota updates which should not be an issue since the M7 shouldn't receive new ota updates... So I would simply use twrp's embedded file manger to remove htc notes app from /system.
