    You can't autotag but that information does exist already in the note metadata. I have an iphone and if I do a search on source:mobile.iphone it will give me a list of all notes created there. For an android phone I'm guessing that the search string is source:mobile.android. Another way to see this (using the Windows client at least) is to go into list view and a right mouse button on the titles will allow you to expose or hide different column data, and one of the choices provided is source. If you expose that column you can see whether notes came from a web clipping, or an email or your mobile device.

    I understand that Penultimate has historically been restricted to iPad probably due to the limitations of screen size imposed by the iPhone. However, now that the iPhone 6 and 6+ have larger screens, will are there any plans to make it available for iPhone?

    Love the new extension for clipping in Safari, and it' segregation to be able to select the notebook, but i'd really like to be able to assign tags there also.

    it sounds like canadians ought to be used to this by now! thanks scott. in my experience, though, prices rarely fluctuate without notice, and i don't remember ever being part of an experiment like this. maybe i was, and just didn't know it? for example, i think all the services i have used lowered their prices over time. and, even then, they announced it to users, lol. i think, in general, my recommendation would be that evernote avoid experimenting on its users. no one wants to be part of an experiment without their consent, especially if it means that they are singled out for higher prices because they happen to live in canuck-land.

    I have to just jump back in here to make a couple points. I don't really intend this to be an argument, but just an offering of my perspective. 1) Evernote has, along with any other company doing business internationally, every right to adjust their prices in other currencies as the market tosses and turns. They also have every right to choose and change the price of their service as they see fit, for whatever reason. 2) Speaking SOLELY of Canada (not sure which other countries experienced a price change), the CAD is about 10% below the USD, and the price increase is approximately 10%. Since Evernote deals in USD, it seems reasonable to adjust the price according to market fluctuations that exceed a certain threshold for a certain length of time. 10% seems like a reasonable threshold and the CAD has been down at that level for a while. If this change were not made, it would equate to a 10% loss in revenue from Canadian subscribers who would, effectively, be given a 10% discount (though to Canadians, it sure as hell wouldn't feel like it). It may also be the case that this is part of Evernote's general price increases (so, some of the change is due to currency, some of the change due to increasing their subscription price unrelated to currency). 3) I have seen many other USD-Based companies adjust their prices in a similar fashion in Canada and elsewhere. These companies have done so without notifying users/consumers in advance. I am thinking of Apple, Sony, and some others, here. (Netflix, which notified subscribers that new subscribers would have a higher rate, would be an exception here...) 4) I think the "experiment" is a bit of an odd way for staff to frame it. My suspicion is that this experiment is more opportunistic than anything. There was likely some need (currency) and desire (price) to increase the subscription price. Hit the countries with the most disparate currencies with the inevitable price change first, and use this as a sort of "natural experiment" (as the scientists call it) to see how subscribers respond before rolling price changes out to larger markets. (Remember, the entire population of Canada is approximately the same as the state of California). I also don't think the "change but don't tell" was solely methodologically motivated. As I note in (3), most companies do not announce price changes in advance, and this is likely more for business reasons than experimental design. The methodological benefit is a bonus of what is largely regular business practice. I'm not saying that it is right for companies to change their prices without notifying their users (granted this almost exclusively affects new subscribers in Evernote's case). Indeed, I've also raised my own frustrations over Evernote's general lack of transparency with some feature-related decisions. I'm just pointing out that it is fairly common practice among businesses, not something dreamed up in the dungeons of Evernote's Redwood City HQ. I can also understand that for those long-time users who are not current subscribers but were about to pull the trigger on a subscription, this would be rather frustrating. I'm reluctant to take the "Experiment" explanation as the complete story here. This is very likely a staggered roll-out of a higher priced subscription to all users, bundled with compensation for stabilized disparate currency values in some countries, with ongoing evaluation of the impact on subscription/subscribers (which isn't manipulative, its sensible. You'd probably want to know if your price increase cut your subscriber rate in half). Just my 2¢ 5¢ (No pennies here, so this is the best I can do).

    Surveys for consumer behavior are generally not as accurate as a test. What people say they will do as consumers and what they actually do can be two vastly different things. If you want a good example, just read up about new Coke. Consumer surveys showed it would be a hit. Jim

    I know next to nothing about market research... but wouldn't a general survey do the trick?... as opposed to one of two other possibilities, as it relates to the already premium user base: (1) Ignorance is bliss - what you don't know won't hurt your pocket (2) The price change is obvious - in which case it's a little curious as to why it was not announced. Possibly offensive to the select test group. I, for one, really don't mind if the EN premium more than doubles... it's long overdue, and it would still be less than commensurate to the full use I get out of the service... but on principle, I have on occasion waited for my 10c change when boarding a bus in Brazil. I read the recent interview with re/code - since I receive Google alerts for Evernote and get other tidbits from elsewhere - so it's no surprise to me. No biggie if the price change hit Brazil right now... but still - what's so difficult about giving a short and sweet announcement through either a blog post which comes out almost daily, an announcement through the EN service itself - or even a newsletter directed to premium users? Raise the price once a year, every year, for all I care... but run through the formalities of letting people know a month or two ahead of time. It's just a dollar a month extra. That's not going to break anyone's bank - especially since one would obviously have the means to pay hundreds, if not thousands of dollars for mobile devices and the like in order to be able to use wonderful services such as EN... but it seems a little sneaky to people like myself who don't know how smart this form of market testing is supposed to be.

    The Evernote organization: * Notes contain your content: text, images and other attachments. They can also be reminder notes, with a reminder date (due date) set * Notebooks contain notes (but not stacks or other notebooks). Each note belongs to exactly one notebook. * Stacks contain notebooks (but not other stacks). Each notebook belongs to zero or one stack. * Tags are labels that you can apply to notes. A note can have multiple labels. So, a flat structure. No sub-notebooks. I'd suggest a notebook per direct. Tags like "1-1", "Review", "Personal" would be a natural first set, to start with.

    Illustrious - I spent a couple of hours researching your ticket yesterday and this morning to help Terry answer your questions. We take allegations of security risks extremely seriously. While I understand your frustrations, I'm positive that Evernote did not disclose anything from or add anything to your account without your consent (or the consent of someone logged into your account using the web browser on your computer). In both of the cases you mention in June, someone on your computer chose to authorize those third party web services to create notes within your Evernote account. Shortly after each of these authorizations, those services took non-Evernote data and used it to create notes and notebooks in your account. None of your notes were accessed by those services, and none of the data they put into your account came from other Evernote accounts. I say that this came from your own computer because I went through our logs to confirm that the same IP address had been used in surrounding days to access your account from your client, web clipper, and web browser. And the web browsers used in surrounding days was identical (in "User-Agent") to the one that authorized Springpad import to Evernote. Since you deleted the notes that Springpad imported from your account, and since their service is no longer available, I can't rule out the possibility that they pushed notes from the wrong Springpad account into Evernote after your browser granted them access. But it's also possible that the content came from the right authenticated Springpad account. (We heard no other reports of incorrect behavior from any of the people who did the same import.) However, I absolutely agree with your general recommendation that Evernote users should choose carefully which third-party applications they permit to access to their Evernote accounts, just like you should choose carefully what applications should have permission to read your email or access your banking web site. We try to help with this decision by enumerating exactly which capabilities you're granting each application. I.e. some applications have permissions to read your notes, others do not. We encourage developers to request only the permissions they absolutely need, and we've added some safety features (e.g. "Note History") to protect against accidental note damage from third party applications. And we will, of course, terminate the access of any applications that are actually mishandling the data of the Evernote users who have granted them access.

    Howdy adama31: I just got off the phone with Synology. DSM 5.1 beta runs exclusively on Synology's hardware... not WIN, not iOS, not Android, etc. I'm expecting a return call from their marketing department. If anything changes, I'll relay the info here and at en2one.proboards.com. Alan

    Looks like Synology is launching an evernote clone. No idea if it is actually sanctioned by evernote (doesn't seem likely), but it seems like a private cloud option of Evernote is happening. https://www.synology.com/en-global/dsm/5.1beta Now of course, I have no idea how synology's "evernote" compares to the real deal. Time will tell.
