I know what some of you are saying: "Well, the HTC Jetstream tablet does that," and, "The Samsung Galaxy Note phone lets you write notes, as well."
About the Jetstream: I LOVE the Notes App that syncs to Evernote (the same on the HTC Flyer/Evo View 4G), but 3 problems:
- Only on AT&T (I'm on Sprint, and have ZERO interest to switch)
- Overpriced ($900+)
- No Wi-Fi version
With the introduction of Android 4.0 -- a.k.a. Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) -- comes the native stylus support, a feature that most kinesthetic folks (like myself), artists, writers, and others of the sort salivate over.
The best thing about it: it's OS-integrated, meaning any and every device (smartphones and tablets) running ICS will have this feature.
Evernote...this is YOUR moment!
Many mobile contract expirations are coming up, as well as phone upgrade perks for loyal customers, and MANY of them are eyeballing the new Android devices: those coming with ICS, and others that will be upgraded to ICS.
If you guys can develop an Evernote app that functions similarly -- if not, the EXACT same -- as the Notes app on the Jetstream and Flyer/View 4G, and utilize the native stylus support API from Android, you guys will have something that goes BEYOND brand loyalty!
It wouldn't be limited to just one product or one carrier; those with HTC, Samsung, Motorola, Asus, Acer, LG, and other products would benefit GREATLY, and on EVERY carrier (domestic AND international), which, in turn, rapidly increases your user base!
I apologize for being wordy, but if you could see the potential that I do, you, too, would be excited!
PLEASE roll the dice on this, Evernote, because believe it or not, many of us -- including myself -- are taking you, your company, and this possible writing feature into account when it comes to their next purchasing decision. You DO matter!
