  1. Hi. The new version of the iOS app looks really nice. I thought the old version looked nice, though. And, the version before that was nice too. So, my advice would be to stop fiddling with how it looks, because I don't think this is the best use of the developers' time. I think you want to be evaluated on how well you have cleaned up the UI, and I wish I could spend time here gushing over the changes, but the truth is that I pay for the app because I want to use it for productivity and as a part of the classes that I teach (Evernote has some nice sharing features that make it quite useful for collaboration on research). Given a choice, I would much rather see current features improved, or new ones added. 1. Stop Removing Features I am more concerned about getting stuff done, and I expect features you put into the app to stick around. There are many requests I have had over the last few years, a few of which have been implemented, so I really appreciate that you listen to user feedback. However, I think in all of my years here, I have never heard any users request the removal of a feature. Sure, I don't want to see some stuff on the screen, and maybe I'll ask to have it moved, or ask for the option to customize the UI. But, every time you remove a feature (something that often happens) it throws a grenade into our workflows and makes us wonder why in the world we are using the app. 2. Presentation Mode I don't like presentation mode very much (my list of complaints / requests for improvement have been communicated many times in these forums ever since its introduction), BUT my students have been using it in class, and they have found it useful. Now, I guess they cannot give their presentations tomorrow in class if they have downloaded the app? This is the same old story (how many times do we have to go through this song and dance?) of Evernote failing to communicate changes. I don't agree with the change, I wish you'd stop nerfing the app, but if you are going to do it, give us a heads up. This isn't a feature request, by the way. Don't bother putting it back. It's the end of the semester, this is the last presentation, so you'll be too late anyhow. All you do when you make mistakes like this (removing features without notice or introducing major bugs) is create resentment, and there is no going back once you have done something like ruin someone's presentation. Instead of treating the app as a beta to be tossed out into the wild, or something you can fiddle around with whenever you feel like it, I suggest you think about this as a critical part of someone's workflow -- any unexpected changes will disrupt people's work and make the productivity app wildly UNproductive. 3. Rethink Your Strategy I'll go one step further and say that if you want users to take you seriously and keep paying for the app, it's time to listen to our feature requests, make some promises, and start delivering. The secret roadmap approach you've been following so far is fine in theory, but in practice you are tearing up the road as you go forward, so it results in a very unreliable experience for users. This is great for the beta released by some startup, but a truly awful strategy if you want people to buy into your vision. This advice is coming from a paying user, and one who has been around here a long time. I've tried really hard to keep using the app in my classes despite your best efforts to undermine my lessons, but I think it's about time to throw in the towel. I've got to submit my syllabi for classes in a few days, and I don't see the point in designing things to include an unreliable app. \ 4. Stop the Nagging First, there were the initial annoying messages about how to use the app, as if I am some idiot who cannot use his phone. This approach was adopted years ago and never seems to go away. Every time I have to reinstall the app on my phone, every time I get a new phone, every time you do a major update I have to suffer through the nagging. Please just stop. I am paying for a professional productivity app. I think it is time that you started treating us as professionals instead of incompetent noobs. Second, I now get this message every time I open the app -- a perfectly wonderful way to ruin all of the productivity improvements you have tried to make: "Stay up-to-date" [Not now] / [OK]. No. I don't want to do push notifications. And, your nagging isn't going to make me press OK. I was planning to use the app in class tomorrow (the same one where I expect students are in for an unwelcome surprise when they try to use presentation mode), but I think I'll use another device that is still running the old version of the app in order to avoid any unexpected nagging. The fact that I am avoiding the new app I consider to be a failure in the testing process. But, this is what happens with every update. Please test more, and when you do it, whenever you have the urge to add a nagging message, resist it. 5. Title? Where is the title of the note? Now, it is indistinguishable from the note. OK. It's an interesting design choice, and actually could work out, but since it is different than the body (you cannot add styles, for example), I'd say some indication of its status as the title would help.

This should cut down in inadvertent data loss. Read more about the Evernote 8 launch on our blog: Evernote 8.0: Organization Made Simple. You can download the Evernote for iOS app from the App Store. As always, please let us know what you think. Cheers! January 18 Update Hi all, Today we released v8.0.1 to address the following issues: Inserting multiple images into a new note with no other content drops the images from the note 8.0.1 stops this behavior and repairs notes that may have encountered this issue From a note list, swiping on a note and tapping the delete button resulted in the note getting expunged instead of going to the Trash 8.0.1 now sends the note to the Trash We are currently focused on fixing the following issues to be part of 8.0.2: From a note list, swiping on an empty note that was just created before the note is automatically removed resulted in the following note being deleted Inadvertently deleted notes should be found in the Trash, but we are also fixing the initial bug Top crasher There is an issue with the thumbnail generation in the note list that may result in crash on launch, crash while scrolling note list, or crash on search. The following have worked for users with various degrees of success: force quit and relaunch app (multiple times if necessary), rebooting device, deleting and reinstalling the app.

  3. As I understand it, the separation of Personal and Business is a requirement of some companies. Unless there is separation, they won't deploy Evernote. Companies don't like it when employees co-mingle their data between personal and business. With that said, I think we would all agree it's an inconvenience. Like Stacey's comment, I would focus on providing Evernote suggestions on how to improve your specific workflow without changing the fundamental model. Separating personal and business might be something required from an Evernote business perspective to land more enterprise customers but great shortcuts or features for power users to speed their workflow between the 2 worlds is probably an area the Evernote Mac team has some leeway to add functionality.

  4. I have decided to stop using Evernote in my classes; I really like it for the sharing options (more a potential benefit of the service than an actual one, because the emails won't even work properly, but that is something for another thread) and one of the main justifications for the premium subscription (in my case) was its classroom potential. This isn't the first time Evernote has removed a feature without notice (presentation mode), but I think it is the last time I am willing to let it affect my classes. If Evernote wants to make an app for professionals to rely upon, then they need to treat their users as professionals instead of infants who cannot handle complex user interfaces (actually, kids do well with pretty much any cluttered interface these days), and they need to be a lot more careful about meddling with peoples' workflows. I've been beating this drum for a few years, so many of my criticisms are nothing new. Why the decision to cut it out of classes now, when we have such a beautiful interface? It's simple. They shifted away from developing to increase the user base (the main focus now for eight years), asked us all to pay if we wanted to support development, and this is their first major release since the summer. It should be something that plants a flag in the ground and says this is how things are going to be at the newly slimmed down (they cut a bunch of staff and servers) company with a new focus. They're repeating the same mistakes again, though, by continuing to fiddle with the form rather than improving the function, and (yet again) unexpectedly removing features. Why they keep abandoning things without giving us a heads up is a mystery to me, but clearly (in this respect, at least) nothing has changed at the company, and it is business as usual. It's a shame, because they clearly did a lot of work, and all of that (for me) is wasted with a single surprise decision to remove a feature. When it just affects me, I suppose I have more patience for it (and, I can just decide not to update), but when it affects the classroom, it is a different story. I hope they get this stuff sorted, and I wish them well. Evernote is still a great app with tremendous potential. I am sure that it meets the needs of many individual users, I hope people really enjoy the new interface, and I am thrilled to see some good news for a change. I'll be sticking around as an individual user -- it does some things I really like, especially with searching. But, I'd say an update that makes me use the app less is probably not a huge success. Another unforced error, in my opinion. They spent time on that marketing blog post sent out a while back excitedly telling us about this app, but they didn't have the time (or interest), in telling us what features would (and wouldn't) be included. I guess they like surprises more than I do.

  6. I'm sure that the changes for EN Business Users are very important, and I encourage you to continue to make it possible to cleanly separate Business Notes from Personal Notes, while at the same time allowing the user to search ALL Notes (both Business and Personal) at the same time. However, even more important, is the bug-free, reliability, of EN Mac for ALL users, both Business and Personal. I am still running EN Mac 6.9.2 because Ver 6.10 introduced some major bugs. More important than separating Business from Personal Notes, is FIXING BUGS. Please release a version that fixes the bugs introduced in Ver 6.10, and serious long outstanding bugs, BEFORE you try to introduce new features. Thanks.

  7. iPhone 6: EN crashes on startup on all new versions v8.0.0 + v8.0.1 + v8.0.2 (unable to use it on my iPhone) What i think: * EN is a great concept and i haven't found anything that measures up to it (Onenote, DEVONthink, Dropbox Paper, Quip, Bear, ...) * BUT, the editor is full of bugs (EN iOS and EN macOS) * I do feel like i am a Beta-Tester (which i don't want to be when i'm paying for my tools) * I do not care about paying $60/year for a great product, but those bugs make a great concept a frustrating experience PLEASE improve your testing!!! (some minor bugs are ok, but not with every release - and right now EN iOS v8 is absolutely unusable on iPhone 6)

  8. Hi! With this update you have effectively ruined my existing workflow (GTD with own modifications), which I have refined over the last years. I am less than happy about it. Why would you remove a feature such as the home screen, without giving me the option to activate it in settings? Please understand that you are not providing a casual dating app but a tool which is a core component of many people's daily workflow. The home screen was a great way of allowing customizability. If you are to make big changes, please let the user still do changes in settings and for example change defaults and reactive hidden features, so that it can work with existing workflows. The tools is to serve the user, not the other way around. Now I seriously have to consider looking for other solutions. Partly because my workflow no longer works but also since I feel I cannot trust Evernote with having this much influence over my daily workflow since I never know what breaking changes you might do. I have been a power user, premium customer and giving recommendations for many friends as a part of the GTD workflow. Now I am not so sure.

  9. The ability to see a screen full of cards and find something visually is valuable and should be reinstated. The new view is like taking your email inbox and limiting it to showing the top 4 emails only. Scrolling down to get to recently added notes is cumbersome and I'm not sure what was gained by removing this view. Please vote for this if you feel the same way !!

  13. Thanks everyone for the feedback. We understand that this is a pretty big change for some of our EB users, which is exactly why we hoped to solicit your feedback. We'll be working through it to make adjustments before we release this to the public. A few things I'd like to chime in on: @handythinks, @asnook (and others) asked "Why are we doing this?" tldr; In the short term: Clarify Ownership of Data: notes in business notebooks are owned by the business; that has important implications; we do not make the separation clear enough today for users to make the right distinction between where their notes will be/should be placed. In the longer term: Separation allows for better business admin controls, and features such as business only accounts. Examples: If you were to place your personal receipts, or financial documents, or social security number in a business notebook, then they would belong to your business and stay with them even when you leave the company. This is not good for the user. On the flip side - many businesses ask that we help keep business-related notes in business notebooks, so that they can retain ownership even if the employee leaves. From their point of view - that's a bare minimum for paying for the service in the first place. We believe this is a very reasonable expectation. They also have asked for additional abilities to control what users do with content in a business account in the future. What's wrong with things today? The current app doesn't do a great job of helping users to understand when they're in a business vs personal notebook. Allowing access to both contexts (from search results, shortcuts, etc.) is great for efficiency, but not great for communicating where you are. As a result, users often put business content in personal notebooks, and personal content in business notebooks. A common example we see (and that I have been guilty of): treating personal notebooks as business-related notebooks I don't want to give everyone in my company access to, and treating business notebooks as business-related notebooks I'd give everyone access to. This will be a continuous project that we'll be working to get better at. This behavior is not what we intended - users keep their personal notebooks when they leave a business; a business will want to know they're retaining your work product - those should always live in business notebooks, not personal notebooks. What do these changes allow for in the future? We are committed to building out stronger business features that allow businesses to have more visibility and control over the content and its distribution in their Business notebooks. We want to really help clarify when you're in Business vs Personal, so that when we introduce additional admin features, you aren't still mistakenly putting your personal content in Business notebooks - because it would be a worse experience for the user then. Business only accounts is also a commonly requested feature (many business owners from all business sizes are puzzled by why a personal account is linked to a business account they are paying for, that they have no rights of data ownership to). This design puts us in a place to implement that in the future. Did we go too far and harm some workflows? We expect that in this transition, users will see some harm done to some workflows - particularly users who have not historically split their data very cleanly between business and personal notebooks, and thus tend to frequently work in both contexts simultaneously. This forum post seeks to understand the broken workflows - thank you for the feedback so far. As @SoftwareMarcus pointed out, feedback on how your workflow was negatively impacted and the seriousness of the impact is very helpful for us. I won't summarize what many of you, and @Chantal Leonard have already summarized - but please keep the feedback coming. Last thoughts: In some cases, we may still knowingly release changes that still harm your workflows. In many/most cases it just means that a fix is coming, but it didn't make it into that release. Your feedback helps us prioritize what must come now, vs later. In terms of implementing an option to toggle the split vs "keep things as they are" - we'll be discussing this internally. However, generally I find that doing this doesn't actually address issues with the "new option" - why fix problems with a new implementation if you can just let your users keep the old one? This usually leads to bloatware that becomes difficult to use, and even more difficult to improve on, since you'd have to start supporting more and more versions of the same product. I'd very much like to avoid that, even if it does mean that we need to make some product tradeoffs. Please keep the feedback coming!

  18. And it is still a piece of garbage. It still crashes on my iPad Air 2. I still have unsynced notes on my iPad, so the reinstall "fix" is not an option. How long is this ***** going to go on? 8.00 crashed. 8.01 crashed. 8.02 crashes. What next Evernote? Is anyone bothering to even test these new releases? Are you unable to duplicate the issue? Have you considered sending out a private beta of a new version to some of us who are experiencing this issue? (I know for fact as an iPad developer that is possible to do.) Seriously your reputation is getting severely tarnished on is fiasco. And no one seems to be listening.

  19. Do not like ‘list’ options one level down. We do a lot of work in outline mode and need immediate access to those features. OTOH we do not use the text size or color changes -- just the standard B, I, U, highlighting, and occasionally strikethrough. Suggestion: Return access of outline features to their prior positions, or Make editing features customizable in a widget bar. (There’s lots of wasted space here!)

  21. So, instead of Evernote streamlining it's beta testing and giving users a warning (like so many of the best companies in the industry do, including Apple) you want the user to manage the beta testing process, by behaving as if every evernote version that comes up as an extensively tested (supposedly) update to actually be an ill tested beta version. You want the user to keep track of the updates, even when iOS is designed to be the exact opposite of that. That's sick! A normal user (let alone a premium one) is not a beta tester and beta testing cannot be imposed on users without offering a choice and a proper warning, like Apple does with their updating process. Moreover most users have their devices set up to auto update the apps. And for the most part and for most of the apps, it works as expected. No other major company does this kind of a disastrous update that is beta but is presented as a tested final release. And a user cannot be expected to put the auto updates to the switched off mode just for the sake of Evernote. So what do you want the users to do? Maintain a log of updates and research on each and every update besides turning off the auto update? Or maybe you expect users to create an evernote notebook specially for tracking every update and user reviews, and then do extensive research and stuffs before taking the plunge. Seriously? Premium customers pay evernote because they trust it. They trust evernote of all things, at least to be able to manage these software releases, so that their productivity is not hampered. They trust the app to be reliable and free of productivity-hampering bugs and bugs that tend to get their vital data lost into thin air, before they have the time to understand what's actually going around. It's evernote that has to change it's way of doing things, and not us, the users! Premium users like me, pay to evernote to be able to use it, and evernote doesn't pay us to be beta testers! So, my advice would be to not try to put the blame upon users, specially for the blames, the cause of which lies in evernote's processes and the way it handles it. Nothing personal with you, but I am very very very pissed off with all of this. Like really pissed off.

  22. Thank you Evernote for the update. I saw all the marketing regarding this new update, but I must be missing something. The only iOS device I own is a iPad Pro 9.7 and on this version, why would someone want their screen real estate taken up by this left-margin gray bar that only holds five icons. Is it not possible to hide this bar and just drag it out when needed? Secondly, the list of notes is now way too large. At least for me, it takes up way too much horizontal room and doesn't leave as much room to view the actual note content. I've been a premium user for many years and just understand the reasoning behind a solid bar. I believe I saw a screenshot that at least with the iPhone, this permanent gray bar is at the bottom. I'm just wondering what others think about this much-discussed upgrade.

  23. Betrayed??? Loyal??? Its just software. I'll stop using Evernote if I find something that serves my needs better. I don't see Evernote not being able to do the job for me, but no regrets - I've had a backup and exit strategy from day one.

  24. PDF annotation doesn't seem to be working on the new app on iPad? (And I'll just add myself to the chorus of disappoint about presentation mode) Also, in portrait mode, the note takes up less than half the width of the screen, with no way to make the sidebar narrower. I pay for Evernote because it's the most productive app, not because it's the most pretty. I'd love to see stylus support, presentation mode returned, and PDF annotation made much more precise and natural... UI changes like this don't really help me do anything better or faster—that's what I want from Evernote.

  25. H. Evernote seemed pretty definite - " Presentation mode is no longer available in Evernote for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. You can use AirPlay to mirror your screen, or you can use presentation mode in Evernote for Mac or Windows." It's not (usually) their way to explain decisions like that, so maybe they found it impractical on mobile devices or it gave the app too big a footprint. If a lot of folks click the counter on this topic they might revisit the idea, but it's unlikely to be soon...

  26. It's hilariously ironic how the blog post is full to the brim of butt hurt Android users thinking they're being ignored. They don't get it. They simply don't see it. They don't feel the iOS users' pain of continually getting a prettier and prettier interface that does less and less. Evernote is the reason I do not use auto update on any of my iOS devices. They will go ahead and remove features and functionality, so it's better to have some time adjusting to a new reality before it puts you on the spot. I hope not too many people who were planning on using presentation mode today in an important meeting kept their apps up to date ... It just boggles my mind.

  27. Presentation Mode is an awesome feature (check out EN's YouTube video from 2014 to see it in action on iOS, which starts at 53 seconds in ). It has been available for iOS for at least 2.5 years, and I've used it most of that time. It's my favorite feature of Evernote. In Evernote 8.0 for iOS, the feature was removed. Which sucks, as I wouldn't have updated had I known that (it's not mentioned in the iOS App Store release notes). There are many reasons to pay for Premium, but Presentation Mode on iOS was the only reason I personally chose to pay for Premium. One of my personal favorite use cases for Presentation Mode on iOS was the ability to write a poem for my wife, and let her read it on the iPad in Presentation Mode. Why? Because the way Presentation Mode presents content is the most beautiful formatting I've seen in any note app on iOS. I've always wished that such care and attention to detail was given to the regular Evernote note-taking area, where we spend most of our time. There's no reason it needs to be any less beautiful, and right now it is - even with the update to 8.0. I recently started defaulting to Bear over Evernote simply because they actually care about giving you a beautiful note-taking environment. Their primary heading on the homepage is 'Write beautifully on iPhone, iPad, and Mac'. Evernote's primary heading? 'Collect it all in Evernote'. All this to say, Evernote has become my database for digitizing physical paper, so I can throw the hard copy away, and Bear has become my note-taking app. Do I like having separate services to search through and pay for? No - I wish I were only using Evernote. However, with all Evernote's resources, they've yet to provide a solution for the actual act of note-taking as beautiful as Bear's. Which tells me it's not Evernote's priority. Presentation Mode was the stopgap that made it at least worth dealing with the less-than-beautiful note-taking UI, because you could at least present the notes in a beautiful way. Now that Presentation Mode is gone on iOS, so will be much of my investment in the platform. Though, if I'm honest, I pulled away from Evernote for notes as soon as Bear came out, because there was finally something beautiful to take notes in. However, in cases where the presentation of the material was important, I still defaulted to Evernote, as Presentation Mode is prettier than Bear, in my eye. The beauty of a product's user interface is not everything, but for me, it's a lot.

  28. Hi ! I've been using Evernote for 3 years now, and loved it so far. I'm in medical school and this app is now in the center of my study habits. Unfortunately this update really is the worst one I've seen in terms of productivity, which is what Evernote is about... The app is globally so slow now (iPad mini retina, never lagging before this update...). Really slow, even when you are juste writing stuff, note even talking about loading notes... all the option about writing are hidden and you have to tape many time to get one option (highlighting for example) again, to set up a reminder... you guys need to put the logo back on so we can just tape on it directly : and this goes for the writing option scrolling down note's list is lagging now... Evernote doesn't need to be graphically heavy to be productive an idea : when you have a lot of reminder it is long to look for one especially now that the app is slow. Wouldn't be possible to have an option to look for an note by date of reminder ? Like a calendar or search option ? also when you create a new note, the writing point (I don't know how to say it in English sorry) shouldn't be in the main writing section but in the title so we can type the title first and then the body of the note. So basically the app is beautiful and more enjoyable to read but mainly less productive to my opinion. The thing is this should be the priority... Thanks in advance

  29. I wonder why they got rid of the presentation mode on iOS... Having it on mobile devices makes sense the most – it's much easier to carry a tablet than a laptop to do presentations. As a teacher, I can honestly say it will be sadly missed. Any reason why it's no longer available? Note creation and searching is somewhat better, note typing and editing is definitely a step back, unless you use an external keyboard. Last year basic markdown was hinted at as a soon-to-be-released feature, but it's still not there, nor do we access to any sort of styles...

  34. I think it's horses for courses; no such thing as an absolute winner. Some people prefer tags, some, subnotebooks, and some want it all. I am a member of the first group, so Evernote "wins" for me (OneNote tagging is kinda feeble). Also, I was definitely disappointed with the OneNote Evernote import process, which made hamburger out of my fine Evernote steak.

  35. Are you going to stick around and continue to troll the forums with your melodrama? An adult would just take their own advice. Wishing you luck with whatever product you wind up with; that's what having choice is all about.

  36. Hi all, Thank you for your feedback - both positive as well as constructive. We're listening and continue working on fixing critical issues as fast as we can. 8.0 is just the beginning - there will be lots of great updates coming throughout the year, and your feedback is both essential and welcome. We released Evernote for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch v8.0.2 earlier today. What's fixed in 8.0.2: Fixed our top crasher - related to thumbnail generation in note list snippets This surfaced as crash on launch, crash when scrolling a note list, or crash on search Swiping to delete a newly created empty note will no longer move another note to Trash Audio, ink, & file attachments are now inserted at the cursor position when editing a note PDF annotation (Premium feature) is no longer disabled for some PDFs Zooming in on an image in annotation no longer resets the size of the image on that screen The app UI no longer gets stuck in an odd view when partially swiping back in Settings You can download the Evernote for iOS app from the App Store. As always, please let us know what you think. Cheers!

  38. I think we'll have to agree to disagree then. Many of the apps I use on a regular basis (including the browser where I am writing this now) have mastered the art of presenting a simple interface with the ability to select font sizes, styles, colors, etc. Even the plain text editors I use are more advanced in this respect. I am not requesting clutter. I'm requesting power and control over my data. All of these things can be done in an elegant manner. I recommend the developers keep a few of Edward Tufte's books on hand for inspiration. The metadata request doesn't seem terribly burdensome or bloated. Again, other apps manage to do it. And, the inability to edit the metadata makes it impossible to do very simple things such as change the created date, change the author, or view the note history. All of these can be extremely useful, especially when you experience data loss and may not have access to your computer for days or weeks. I'll take streamlined, too. In fact, as I said, I think they did just fine making the app beautiful. But, having functionality and elegant simplicity are not mutually exclusive. I could list many, many apps (including competitors) who strike a very nice balance (in my opinion). But, fair enough. Let's agree to disagree. Let's say they streamline the app further and remove more features they deem unnecessary. OK. I'll support them. Just don't dump the app on users with no heads up. Instead of sending out marketing blurbs devoid of content ahead of a release, maybe let users know you're going to do X, Y, Z for "reasons." That'll give us time to prepare, even if we aren't too happy to be paying for an app that increasingly does less

  39. Yes please!, I travel to a lot of different job sites and the atlas feature was an awesome way to find notes that where created at a job that I haven't been to in a long time. Instead of trying to remember what to search I would just pull up the map and it would show me what notes I had created around my current location.

  40. Evernote Wizards. Please, give us a dark theme. My eyes are bleeding with how bright your default theme is. (both web & desktop) No suprise, it is mostly white. A great choice for clean design, but ultimately a fail for intensive use. Please, give us a dark theme. Best Regards, Your Paying Customer

  41. I think the point may be that the app shouldn't make it to the app store and into folks lives unless and until it is stable.

  43. If anyone installed Evernote 8.0 for iOS today, you'll see that a hard separation between Business and Personal is the new standard for Evernote. Evernote web has been separate for a while. Now Evernote for iOS is completely separate. I'm sure that Android and all Desktop clients will soon follow. I was passionately opposed to the change in Evernote 6.11, but I can now see that it isn't open for discussion. That is the approach Evernote is taking across all platforms and they have their motivations for doing it. We would be best served by making constructive suggestions that minimize disruptions to our workflows or allow new workflows to maintain our productivity. One suggestion from me would be making the switch faster and easier. The shortcuts aren't easy to remember or find with my fingers and the UI switch is slow and harsh. Ideally, switching could be easily made using the ⌘J shortcut. In 6.10 I constantly used ⌘J>Business Notes or ⌘J>Personal Notes to quickly switch between different accounts. I would love to get that option back to switch between accounts. Also, the abrupt closing and reopening of the entire Evernote window could be smoother. That's my 2¢.

  44. Thanks for Evernote 8.0! It seems to work quite intuitively. Great to have to ability to find notes by combining tags and keywords. That is exactly what suits me when, in a meeting, I am in a rush to find that specific item among my 14.000+ notes. I look forward to "Reminders enhancements" in a future update. Using reminders to have the notes for todays meetings at my fingertips, I like to be able to sort reminders by date. It would be truly magnificent if today's reminders could be just on top, above reminders for days passed and coming.

  45. Its a comparison of apples and oranges Yes, Evernote has an email input feature Yes, Spark has an integration with Evernote to create notes from Email. It creates notes directly and does not use Evernote's email feature I have a similar process scripted for email on my Mac I prefer the direct route over the email process

  46. Hi. Feedback is pretty easy for paying users - you can log in and contact support directly if you wish, or message them on Twitter Evernote isn't alone in allowing renewals to go through without notice - I've had the same thing happen on commercial software costing a lot more. The trick is, if you want to cancel, make sure you change the account details well before the due date. If you're still suffering from issues and can give us some detail here, it's possible that other users might be able to assist... at the least, if you can post your ticket number from your abortive experience above, we can get a Forum Admin to have a look at the exchange.

  47. Sorry, but the separation of Business and Personal notebooks is a productivity nightmare for me. I frequently need to have personal and business notes open at the same time. An example: my business procedures are in the business notebooks while my daily task list and my agendas are in my personal notebook. I constantly switch between them. And this separation makes Evernote far less useful for me. Also when I open tabs in the personal notebooks and then switch to business notebooks the tabs get lost - even when I switch back to personal. Also it isn't possible to have 2 windows open one in Business mode and one in Personal mode. Dear Evernote developers and designers, please don't do this to me. Listen to how your users work. It isn't necessarily only work or only personal at a time. Don't cut the flexibility we loved so much about Evernote.

  49. Using my Mac, I moved a 200mb note between notebooks 10 times The sync was very fast, and no change to my upload stats This shows me there will be no impact to the upload limit ymmv Note: This would not include moving from a Local notebook. I'm sure that would impact your upload limit
