Never, if I have a vote.

Modulo "when": Evernote does not generally release their roadmaps, but if you're interested in knowing things before-hand, then you can always sign up for the beta program.

Be careful what you wish for!

We don't release roadmaps, but I'm glad you're interested! :)

Oh fine, fine... Don't know if you can tell us if eventually it will be the same or not?

At any case, thanks for the quick replies :)

What?? Tell me it ain't true... Tell me you're not REALLY gonna muck up the Windows client like has happened to the Mac client... please... :o

The Windows client is currently working just fine. The Mac client (newest version) is still awful, and why I'm using the previous version.

The Windows client does not NEED to be changed. It works. It is one of the reasons that Evernote has become famous. Please DON'T "improve" it like you did with the Mac version

OK - add a couple of little features here and there - Grumpy will have a list. But don't change the UI, don't remove ANY features that currently are working nicely.

As one poster said above to the OP - be careful what you wish for.....

Is the OP asking to have it, or hunkering down for disaster? He didn't say.
And what is a Mac Windows client? Does their platform have a special Windows client?

I like this point. Stability is the most important reason I choose EN other than other memory recording products, even if EN becomes worse a little bit .


Some new features at new version on Mac look like awesome, but please stability first, thanks.

Excellent! Is that "goodness" going to eventually filter back to the Mac and iOS versions?

What I I'd like to see mostly is better integration with maps and geographical locations. Currently I use Evernote Food for many things, but while it looks good on the phone, it doesn't really look great on the windows client. That said,does work just fine, under note details. I'd like if Evernote's UI looks better than just a bunch of tables, and I understand this is exactly what most users here do NOT like. Maybe an option to turn it off and on?

Options and customizability are what I like the most about Windows. The more the better! If children can hamdle the information density in video games like Halo, then I can handle it in my external brain :)

Here are a couple shared notes with comparisons of the clients for Windows users who want to know more about Mac (looking at the notes will not give you Apple cooties).

I like the stylish layout of the Mac version :-) (Windows looks a little bit old baken) This design and the stability plus functionality of the Windows version would be good for me ...

Yep. I don't think the Mac team can be criticized for lack of style! Well, maybe they can, because they might not be on the cutting edge out there in Silicon Valley sartorially speaking (how many of us have adopted black turtlenecks and jeans?), but the stuff they design is top-notch :)

I do think the functionality and customizability of the Windows interface is crucial, especially when we are talking about managing something as important and unique (to each one of us) as our external brains.

I'm from Maine. What do I know about style? But the darn thing's gotta work, that's for sure.

Problem is that style has become more important than function. I'm quite happy with the "old" look of Evernote - after all, my spreadsheet programs (Excel on PC, or Numbers on the Mac) aren't particularly stylish. Style is nice - but ONLY when it is secondary to function. That discussion has been had many times on these forums since the release of ENv5 on the Mac, and the new iOS versions.

Style should be the icing on the cake, and only if it doesn't impact on function at all. Unfortunately, that has happened bass-ackwards with the new Mac and iOS versions.

My computing career started in the days of DOS - there was no such thing as "style" in the UI back then. All you had for fonts was Courier. I tend to go with the "Classic" view wherever possible. I HATED the 2007 MS Office ribbon when I was forced to use it. Menus were so much easier! Now that I have been using Office 2010 for a while, I still hate the 2007 ribbon (I am forced to use it at work), but I love the 2010 version. My point? Give me the option to use the classic view if I want, but eventually, when the bugs are squashed, I may come to like the modern version. So, I am quite happy with the Windows version of EN (don't have a Mac) but if you give me a WORKING upgrade, I will probably learn to live with it!

Wow! We're talking about important data here. It should be displayed in a reasonable format that lends to being able to easily and quickly orient with the data. This ain't no entertainment facility! Massive change is very disruptive.

If it is not pretty enough, then put on some colored glasses, or paste a colored overlay on your screen.
Problem is that it seems to now be assumed that the new visual people (they think they are) are in charge, and never mind the millions of previous users. I'm starting to wonder about these people.
Some improvement is good, but throwing out everything just to make it look new and different, is just wrong!
Go watch a movie, or swap over to your pinterest. The product must continue to function with as little disruption as possible!
That's my opinion, based on a real need to be able to productively function, over looking pretty.

As a third stage Evernote guild navigator might say:

"Listen to me: The spice (I mean updates) must flow! The UI gives us the metaphysical abillity to see beyond: To have superior powers. Our power to fold space is in the UI! Without a great UI, our external brains would be lost. Scattered in isolated notebooks! We would be lost!"

We sound like some melange junkies out here :) Don't mess with our supply!

Go watch The Matrix. We're there. People have been taken in. I'm seeing it. Function/reliability don't matter. It just needs to feel and look right. Everybody else is just acceptable loss to the "artsy" people.
By the way, too bad y'all didn't run XP Media Center Edition. It looks better than XP, and much better than Vista or 7. Too bad they didn't propagate its look up to now. The Mac people might have liked it. Maybe everybody would have. 7 looks dull in comparison.
