Wordsgood 526 Posted December 10, 2014 Share Posted December 10, 2014 First, apologies if starting a 2nd thread about this upsets anyone. I ask that anyone who is not EN staff, to please not delete or merge this with my thread from last week. (The one where I was asking where to send new users, or those needing a reinstall, for direct downloads.) Attention EN Staff: Please help... After just now seeing JMichael's comment to another user recommending they do a direct download from Evernote.com for their Mac, I went back to check, again, how to get direct downloads for what I personally use - Windows and Android. According to JMichael - if I understand correctly - you can still obtain a direct download of each app. But, rather than go to the page in the KB that one used to go to for all the clients - where chose the app that matched your device(s), clicked on them and proceeded with "direct from Evernote" downloads - you now just need to ensure you're on the device you need to for any particular matching app and click Download. Of course you always did need to be using the device that matched the app needed, but now I still cannot find a way to get a direct download for my Android. It doesn't matter where I try to access it from on the Evernote.com site, I keep getting automatically redirected to Google Play, which, of course, shows that I already have it installed! Here's my two problems: First is the Android app. I need to - as soon as possible - wipe my current android phone and switch to a replacement one. (Mine had a piece break off and if I don't switch to the replacement they sent me and return the broken one, asap, or I will be charged $600!) Second, is my Windows PC. I need to try wiping EN on that machine as well, to get rid of an annoying 3rd party app I originally got through the EN App Centre in late 2013. As per another of my recent threads, the developer is long gone and their site has long since shut down. (The app, in case you care, is Solowords. You really should take it out of the App Centre.) I am about 99% sure I did direct from Evernote downloads on both my PC and my phone, and would like to do so again with the new phone and the reinstall on my Windows PC. I haven't yet even tried looking while on my computer to see whether your site will automatically redirect me to a 3rd party location or not. Why? Because: A) As I've stated a few times on the forum, I do the bulk of my computing from my phone for health related reasons, and, I want to know exactly where I can expect my computer is going to be directed to for the download. Call me paranoid, but the android phone still had an active replacement insurance policy on it; my 2009 laptop has no such coverage I can NOT afford to risk any kind of trojan horse virus or malware to squeak past my Bitfender security software before I have a chance to stop it. Been there and done that with two previous, popular and supposedly reliable anti-virus software programs. Three trips to the repair guy and several hundred dollars later for the repairs and the purchase of Bitfender, I AM paranoid. If the computer goes now, I won't be able to have it fixed or replaced. So PLEASE, would one of you kind Evernote employees please chime in and explain exactly where to find the direct downloads for Android and Windows Desktop can be found? Also, knowing where to find the direct downloads for all the EN Client Apps would be really useful for directing other users who are new or need a reinstall for whatever reason. Thanks.
