Android Tablet handwriting too lag

Recommended Posts

Hi i wonder anyone have the same issue like me. I am using samsung tab 10.1 spen. currently i am fan of evernote and i using it everyday to take note.

But my experience with handwriting on evernote is too terrible. the speed of ink is too slow, it not appear right after my stylus but delay for a while. But on other app like onenote or squid are not.

This is my video when writing:

Evernote writing on samsung spen 

Hopefully evernote team will optimize it more.

Hi,

I can comment from my experience on the Note 4 and now Note 8: I experience a similiar lag. It is not related to your device, others (see e.g. 

) have had similar problems.

I have the same tablet and I have the same problem. I was going to get premium but after I saw this problem. I canceled. I hope evernote will improve the handwriting and solve this problem

Same here, I have tried handwriting in Evernote ever since I laid my hand on the Samsung Note 9. Sadly, it's simply too laggy to write. 

I love Evernote and I love S pen, really hope Evernote team would listen and help solve this issue.

This!  Just got my Note 9 and is so laggy!  Microsoft Onenote does not have this issue.  I pay premium fee and this is unacceptable.  Also, the Android handwriting capability is aweful compared to iOS.  I HATE Microsoft but have to change because I take notes with a stylus.

I've noticed that the evernote input with an external device (including an external keyboard) has been laggy since recent updates. Frustrating

Same here. Brand new Samsung S4 Tab. Every app works fine (best are the Samsung apps, which I don't like). But Evernote is a nightmare. Hoped after years of usage to get finally my hands to the handwriting feature; but still ... nothing & useless. 

Had the same issue back then with my Nvidia Shield ... So this problem persist now for over 3 years.

Dissapointed Pro-User - but thank you for the "new elephant" ?

Same here. Another brand new S4 Tab.

I cancelled my Premium subscription a few days ago, this confirms what I did was right.

I have feedback about the stylus lag on my Note 8, Note 9, Tab 10.1, Tab S4 on evernote quite some time back and I dont see any efforts to improve the lagging. Samsung Notes and Microsoft OneNote has NO lag at all, so it's defintely a software and not a hardare issue.

Am currently looking for an alternative solution that is platform agnostic and once I find it, I will delete my premium account and switch over as Evernote does not seem to be interested in fixing this lag issue.

Suggestions on any other solutions I should be looking at are welcomed.

I had a Note 3 quite some time ago and this issue with handwriting lag was the reason I dropped Evernote and switched over to Keep. I recently got a Note 9 and decided to give Evernote another shot. The same lag is still there and it's simply unusable. Just about every other handwriting app I've tried doesn't have this problem.

Evernote would be perfect with the pen. I'm a paying user and it just does not work with the S Pen. Samsung Tab 4 is probably th best Android tablet around and it's a shame Evernote does not support its stylus.

Any hint on fix for this?

Same problem here with Tab 4.

I really want to use Evernote instead of One Note. But, I can't, because of this issue.

I am a Evernote user in several platforms. So far have taken handwritten notes in an iPad with PenUltimate using a passive JotPro stylus.

Now I own a Lenove Yoga Pro tablet (android) and the handwriting function in Evernote is simply impossible to use due to the lag. Not to mention the lack of functionalities compared to PenUltimate...

Frankly speaking, it is a shame!

Same thing here. I  cancelled my premium due to the terrible handwriting.  I hate having to use different apps for notes, but evernote really doesn't do the job anymore. In the old times, Skitch was kinda good, it is no more.

Is handwriting less terrible with a Basic account; imho there's no difference

>>apps that are minimally  good at handwriting.  Ever is not.

Agreed.  Evernote only offers a sketch feature, stored as a file attachment

Yes, there is diference, if you use the money to purchase apps that are minimally  good at handwriting.  Ever is not. Don't get me wrong I still love evernote, but the app is lacking behind. I just wanted developers took this topic more seriously.

Anyone know if the new Note20 Ultra addesses this lag issue? Apparently it's much faster than older S Pen models.

I doubt it is a hardware-issue. It is a software issue inside of Evernote. As I can't use EN as my daily driver, I got used to Squid. It is very responsive on my Samsung Note 10+ & Samsung Tab S4 - wheras on both devices ENs handwriting was completely not usable. Even Googles Keep has a much better responsivity. But to be honest: it got better, but is still not usable - but for jotting down notes ... I'll stick with squid.

I'd be interested too if the Note 20 somehow makes it usable. Right now on the Note 10+ handwriting is simply too laggy to use. Maybe the increased resposiveness and processor make it 'acceptable'?

Unfortunately not. Neither for jotting not sketching. As I stated before - this is simply a software issue, not a hardware issue. 

Not even sure EN is developing anymore, as I didn't saw any significant changes or Bugfixes.

Ist EN dead?

Puh-leeze (= Biiiiitte). ^_^ Evernote's development efforts most recently have gone heavily into the Web client beta, since that is the development ground for future improvements to the interface and editing capabilities across platforms. Please look at some of the videos in the https://discussion.evernote.com/forums/forum/306-behind-the-scenes-series/ forum. There are definitely improvements in the works for the Android app.

I certainly hope this is the case.  But, as they say, the proof is in the pudding. Here's hoping for the requisite improvement.
