Remove unnecessary photo background from home screen/restore lost space



The so-called "background" photo uses up a quarter of my mobile screen in wasted space.  Please remove it or else make it optional.  It should be possible for the whole screen to be used for note-related information, not wasted on irrelevant images.

Agree.. what's the purpose ?! 

That whole home screen is just a barrier to content - the opposite to what it was probably intended for.
The whole widget thing feels too gimmicky.. as a user I just wants access to notes... so customisable shortcuts to either Notes or Notebooks is as complicated as it needs to be.

Some real daft UI decisions being made lately.

Agreed!  The irrelevant image wastes valuable screen space and is visually confusing. 

There does seem to be a workaround of sorts: I deleted the various new widgets, then went back to Notebooks in the sidebar and selected my most-used notebook. That is now what I see when I launch the iOS or Mac Evernote app, approximating the pre "upgrade" experience.

Some like it, some don’t. I use an own photo, and it sets the mood for me when I open EN. I have no problem that it takes a few cm from the top of the screen on my iPad Pro 10.5.

About seeing home on open, there are voting threads to set a switch for home or notes view.

Home will gain for me when there is a Tasks widget added. This is announced and will probably be released soon.
