Back to basics

Recommended Posts

This is a great product but in the process of adding bells and whistles I feel the developers have lost the plot in terms of basic interface and navigation. The old version was better. I use the product regularly but not every day and I guess more frequent users would just get used to it. For me I have to stop, think and press a few buttons to do anything like create a new note that will end up in the folder I want it to. Clever interface design would avoid this. The current layout discourages use - a better design would would encourage it. The task of improving this could be done as a student project by any design school in the world. It would cost nothing and you just take what you want from the results.

Evernote is going in this direction. They have eliminated some extraneous features already.


In September, the new Evernote CEO said:
"Evernote’s strength is in its core: notes, sync, and search. That’s where we’re going to focus."
And there is this Evernote blog which said:
"For the better part of the last two years, we’ve been undertaking a massive infrastructure project in Evernote. The fruits of this work will open up the path to some of your most frequently requested features"
