Leozin 8 Posted October 29, 2013 Share Posted October 29, 2013 Hi, I use Evernote for Windows, iPad and iPhone. Manly in the latter, since it's the one I use on the move. But I prefer using the Windows version due to its power and flexibility. Evernote has replaced the need for specific shop-groceries-list and ToDo-list apps, specially because of the possibility to create a list with checkboxes. This, however, has an issue: when pushing the groceries cart while holding the phone on the other hand, hitting the checkboxes with the thumb is a real challenge. It also triggers the edit mode, bringing up the on-screen keyboard and narrowing down the view of the list vertically. But not only for shoplists, in modern life we have a lot of tasks. This is where the could be an improvement: a item-swipable ordered list, just like the favorite iPhone contacts on edit mode, or the songs in the music app in edit mode: if we tap and hold the three-horizontal-lines symbol in the right, then swipe up and down, we can reorder the favourites list. The same with the music app. In other apps that take advantage of swiping list items, such as Task and Mailbox, there are a handful of gestures to handle those items, besides the swiping up and down, like swiping right to complete, swiping left to archive, long-swiping left to delete, and so on. This is time saving! We couldn't we have something very similar in Evernote? I mean, we create a "note with tasklist", or "insert tasklist into a note". This would be also good for tracking other kinds of lists, such as forum posts: As you can see, there is an ordinary two-column table with dates and links to forum posts. There could be a smarter way to manage that list, the ability to bring items up and down the rows, or sort by date. I think both ideas are connected! What do you think, developers? Link to comment
