Hi.  Have you looked at all the existing widgets?  There's a 'list' option that will show you part of a note,  and open to that specific note if you tap it..  or individual buttons that could open individual notes if you wish...

I want to be able to see the whole note, view only as quickly as possible, this is possible with other apps but none of them are as powerful as Evernote

You could take a screenshot and use it as wallpaper,  but that stops all of Evernote's functions from working.  If you save your shopping list as one-note-per-item notes in a separate notebook you could scroll up and down the list of notes in the large widget,  but that's it for current options.  If Evernote (and everyone else) think this is a useful feature request,  maybe someday...  all you have for now though is workarounds!

I want to be able to interact with it when needed to update the list, or even check tick boxes without actually opening evernote, I know lots of people want this, is their any way to formally submit ideas to Evernote?

This is the place to raise ideas and feedback - Evernote created the feedback pages so they could judge the interest in ideas raised,  and prioritise the development necessary. 

With 150M very active users they're careful (although not always careful enough) to avoid making changes that don't benefit the majority of their users,  hence the voting system at top left.  If your proposal is popular it stands more chance of being adopted.  I'm just saying that until it is available you may have to look at work-arounds - unless they already had this idea in development and are about to launch it on an unsuspecting world,  it will be months or years before you see any changes from current suggestions...

I've installed Evernote many times over the years and quickly stop using it after I remember why I don't use it.. It's missing this, in my opinion, very obvious feature. I just want to have two different note widgets on my main screen with a minimalistic menu button that allows me to change which note it is displaying. The current widget has a full row of buttons which wastes space. The date of last edit visible in start of each note is also unnecessary in my opinion.

Just like OP I want to have fastest possible access to notes on my phone's main screen. Like a grocery list and a list of stuff I need to buy from hardware store, so I can just quickly check if there's something I'm forgetting. Then if I'm for example building some project and need to take measurements I could change my grocery note for a blank note and write down my measurements, again with very minimal effort as I only need to unlock my phone and it would be right there on my main screen.

i'm new here but I have the same wishes as the above posters.

I don't think Evernote is for us, unfortunately.

Evernote is great for syncronization between my PC and my android; love it!

But when it comes to the wishes of myself and the folks above,  it's widget is lacking.  I put the widget on my screen, it shows a simple list of notes. Can't do anything with it; you have to click the widget and it takes you into Evernote.  
Clunky.

There's good apps for what we want out of a usable, interactive widget:  NoteToDo.Notes To do list is one.  You can create list items, have full font/color/size control, check them off, and do all of this *from within the widget itself*.  No "display widget" that merely sends you to the app.

 

Again, though, obviously Evernote is loved by many people.  I guess they just don't want what we want.

An old school widget offers similar functionality, but not font or size options, and no backup or cloud sync: Checklist Widget.  It's ooold.  But does what we want.

 

Evernote it seems to me is a Word Document syncing app.  Not truly a To Do list app, as you can't have discrete To Do items that can be slid up and down (rearranged); it's just like a word document with boxes before lines of text.

 

Again, many love it, so we are the odd-ones-out.  To each their own.

Hi.  You're posting in a 3-year old thread,  and Evernote has changed a little(!) over that period,  though sadly if all you want is an easy-access to-do/ check-list then Evernote is hugely over-engineered for your use.  There are hundreds of free apps that will do exactly what you need.  Good luck in your search...

Yes my response may be to a 3 year old post, but the issue is still the same, doesn't matter the age of the original post.   My Observations are on point, and yes, Evernote is hugely over engineered for this particular desire, but for offering a nicely integrated cross-platform easily syncing application, Evernote does well.

I am a premium Evernote supporter, so I put my money where my mouth is.  Let's keep that in mind.  I know you have 38 M posts to my 2; just making observations.  There is always room for improvement in everything.
