NightStalker 405 Posted November 26, 2012 Share Posted November 26, 2012 I've been an Evernote user since just about the beginning, and have multiple family members all on Premium accounts as well. I have a large number of notes and have established a pretty intuitive workflow as to how I use EN, including how I find stuff and how I edit stuff.Now I've also been following these forums for a long time, especially the Mac and the iOS ones recently, and it sure seems to me that there is WAY more grumpiness (sorry, Grumpy) and dissatisfaction with the new ENv5 on both the Mac and the iOS platforms, especially the iPad version.There have been far too many complaints of stuff that has been removed, or apparently changed just for the sake of it, plus never-ending requests for features that we never get, like List view on the iPad.Surely, given the amount of negative feedback you're getting on the various Evernote development teams, it must be about time that you took a deep breath, took a step back, and thought "Hmmm - maybe they all DO have something?" Maybe it's time to go back to the way things were, then actually IMPROVE on those. What I mean by that is to leave everything that was in the previous version ALONE, and only ADD one or two extra things - like List view on the iPad. It all worked. It worked well. There was/is absolutely NO need to change it. It ain't broke, and didn't need fixing.Whoever planned or decreed the new paradigm, especially the UI, and whoever made the (silly) decisions to remove stuff (like the configurable toolbar, the back/forward arrows etc) and all the other stuff that you must be getting sick of reading in here by now - please PLEASE admit you got it wrong! Just admit that this was a bummer of an "upgrade". It would get a lot more respect for a company to be able to do that (like the Skitch debacle) than to push on blindly trying to fix the unfixable. Or to appear to have the attitude of f*ck the customers - we'll make them work the way WE want them to work.I really do think that it is time for both the Mac and the iOS teams to stop, re-assess what has happened here, and go back to square one. And rethink what NEEDS to be done to the previous version, rather than all these silly changes for the sake of it. Things like the "Premium Features" tab in the iOS version - who the heck needs that? it is just two settings that once set, you never need again - yet the tab takes up all that screen real estate forever... And put back the toolbar configuration in the Mac version. Go back to the way tags worked, with the ability to drag a note to a tag, or a tag to a note. All the things from these forums, in fact.Time for a re-think? I think so..... Link to comment
