Thanks for posting. I'll try to address the issues you brought up.
One problem is that I cannot edit many existing notes.
We currently don't have a rich text editor in the "Windows Store" Evernote app. Building a rich text editor on each platform is always one of the hardest parts of launching on a new platform, so we're still working on it. There are alternatives to building it from scratch, so we're looking into those. It currently looks like certain components and/or libraries haven't made it over yet, which makes things difficult.
Notes with attachments won't allow me to open the attachments.
We'll be working on that as well.
Every time I start Evernote app, it tells me I am not using the latest version, offers me the option to update, and then when I select that, nothing happens. Even if I uninstall, re-boot, and re-install. Same message.
It should be taking you to your updates page in the Windows Store. Does the store not even launch? Sometimes the store is down or unavailable so even though we've released an updated version of the app, the store isn't available to let you download it. Have you had any luck since you've posted?
I know it is only seven weeks away, and maybe Evernote does not want to tip its hand, but before I get too far down this path, I'd like to know that Evernote modern UI app will be here for me. I would say that other than this one thing, and a simple Modern UI PDF editor, I would be ready to call this experiment a wrap and a huge success.
I'll still have my desktop/laptop with large keyboard and screen for real productivity use, but I am hoping to begin traveling very light (phone and tablet with one charger)and still be fully functional in a way that I have not been able to achieve with either my Android tablet or iPad (which have nice Evernoe implementations but not the other things Win 8 brings.
Just as a general statement, launch day isn't the day we declare the product finished and we can go take a break. We usually already have new features and improvements in the works. The Android and iOS teams have had a bit of a head-start on us, but I don't particularly like playing catching. So we'll be pushing for feature parity as soon as possible.
