  1. Upgrade Offers

    Ocassionally Evernote will pop up a spam ad asking if you want to upgrade. I’m not sure how effective it is when folks have just learned to work around their current plan limitation (data for free,!dont use PDF for standard, not sure if you buy premium - maybe business upgrades). instead why don’t you reward your frequent flyers with a kudos summary of how to use Evernote more. I’m sure your frequent users have better upgrade rates. Two months before their current plan renews (use join Date for free users) put a pop up notice that tells them you want them to use Evernote more and that you are unlocking the next level features for them. Then give them 2 months of usage. If you can incentive streaks the way Snapchat does in a non-annoying manner all the better. At the end of two months when you prompt them to renew give them the option of keeping the upgrade with a discount or going back to their regular plan. This will have the psychology of losing a valued feature and the discount will encourage them to take the upgrade. For your top users you need to reward loyalty with either a tchotchke like an Evernote T-shirt or a virtual badge that unlocks additional functions and profile upgrades. That way your top users will stay loyal. wishing Evernote a LONG LIFE and a step forward into the innovative company you used to be!
  2. Save to Evernote only grabbing title of web page

    Found some more wrinkles... if you google search for an article on iOS Safari Google adds their URL to the results which screws up Send to Evernote. Examples: search on quake proof sf chronicle may 2004 google gives this result: https://www.google.com/amp/www.sfgate.com/homeandgarden/amp/What-S-F-homeowners-need-to-do-to-be-ready-for-2782020.php if you save to Evernote it screws up, but if you strip out the google url part it works fine. http://www.sfgate.com/homeandgarden/amp/What-S-F-homeowners-need-to-do-to-be-ready-for-2782020.php Evernote should probably be smart enough to strip this out automatically or figure out how to get around it since it is corrupting the cool feature.
  3. Reminder Missing on IPHONE + Button

    I'm using 8.5.1 on iphone w iOS11 and it works for me. Does Evernote need permissiin to access reminders tgst you need to set in your iphone settings?
  4. Save to Evernote only grabbing title of web page

    Thanks for reproducing the iOS bug. I'll see if I can find other examples if tgst helps tge developers to fix. I notice tgat you cant be in Safari's reading mode to nvoke the mac web clipper.
  5. When I use Safari’s Save to Evernote Feature (MAC and iOS bug) I am losing contents. Try to save this page: https://chemistry.stackexchange.com/questions/855/difference-between-lab-grade-and-food-grade-purity Looks great in Safari, but in Evernote I’m only getting the title and not the contents. I usually find these contentless notes after I go to use them and discover they don’t have anything. Ofyen times I cant find the original website to recover tge missing notes. Any chance you can fix the bug or at least include the original URL? Steps to repro: 1 - load a web page. In this case https://chemistry.stackexchange.com/questions/855/difference-between-lab-grade-and-food-grade-purity 2 - on iOS choose the share icon and choose save to Evernote and choose a notebook to save to. Open tge note and ecamine. 3 - on Mac’s choose the Safari Evernote toolbar icon (browser extension). Choose a notebook and hit save.
  6. Spell checker iOS

    Evernote really needs to revamp their text engines to a unified set if code between platforms! Currenrly the iOS Evernote client does nor use Apple's spell check resources or even have the abiliry like the Mac client does. It is really embarrassing to share a note with typos that coukd have been easily caught with a little red underline. The predictive text is keyboard dependent and not part of my normal workflow.
  7. I've been enjoying the Mac Evernote's ability to view PDFs as inline images (right click a PDF in a note and choose view inline instead of view as attachment). The problem I'm having with Evernote is that when I do a keyword search to find a note most of my results are all the PDF books I've added to my collection. As far as I can tell there is no way to have Evernote skip these notes in my search results. God forbid you add a dictionary PDF to your collection! Is there any way to tell Evernote to skip specific notes, notebooks or filetypes? Any way of filtering out results using keywords? If not please consider adding a feature request for: Note Setting that has a checkmark to EXCLUDE this note from keyword searches beyond the note title. For now I'm going to delete the PDF books I've added. ;( thanks, Stephen
  8. What platform are you on? All Mac and iOS apps are 64 bit. You might try exporting on a different platform to see if that helps, but I'm guessing the issue lies with Evernote's exporter or server side.
  9. Getting Evernote onto a common core Text engine across their platforms is the kind of engineering effort you take on in good times. With Microsoft One Note free on Windows, Mac, iOS and Android Evernote has a huge revenue challenge ahead of them. When I was at Adobe it took 7 years for the huge PageMaker dev team to rewrite the engine in what would become InDesign and the end of Quark. I doubt Evernote has resources to take this kind of effort on, especially when most of us want new features instead of a new text engine that is bound to break all kinds of things! Going for low hanging fruit and keeping a cult following is what will keep users paying top dollar to stay on the Evernote platform. I've been a long time Evernote user, and more recently a paying user when I could see Evernote was in trouble. If you haven't checked out Bear I encourage you to do so. They are a small 3 man Italian Dev team that have done an outstanding job of creating a nice writing app. It would make a great front end to Evernote or more importantly to DropBox or Google Docs. I suspect they will eventually get bought out or seek Silicon Valley VC if they decide to expand beyond the Apple ecosystem. It goes to show what focus and a fine tuned set of features can do. The $15 a year price plan is also more in line with the earlier comments about Evernote vs Free One Note. Evernote could learn a lot from what a lean dev model tied to revenue looks like. For those of you with great ideas on what it would take for Evernote to be the innovator it once was I encourage you to apply for their Mac Evernote product manager position they have posted (May 2017). https://evernote.com/careers/job/?id=496793?&ref=justproductjobs&utm_source=justproductjobs&utm_medium=joblisting I applied and got a polite, "Thanks, but NO Thanks!" reply, but I'm sure others in the Evernote community that might fare better!
  10. Evernote's focus on profitability has come at a high cost - customer love of the brand. If I was Evernote's product manager I would work hard to bring back some of that fanatical love for Evernote. You guys can win against Microsoft's One Note! At its heart Evernote needs to be fun to use. Your core market has been Mac users, and those are the folks fighting hardest to find reasons to love you. They are also probably your largest segment of paying customers (vs Windows, Android or even iOS users). Given your history of not unifying your text engine you need to work hard to make Evernote Mac Best of Class. I use Evernote to capture and edit my new ideas. I make it a habit to use the product daily since switching from the free version. I have submitted numerous feature requests up here, but few if any have been acted on. If you want the love of your users that needs to change. Each release highlight the features added and give credit to those that requested them. Make the users matter! I'm a big fan of themed releases. It helps to take a handful of new features and give them focus. The easy market I would go after is GRAMMAR. Your text engine could use the upgrade and their are a host of features around making users better writers. Have an EDU special where you give English teachers the ability to get Evernote Plus free for two years. Show schools how they can easily add Evernote to their list of approved apps and beat out Google Docs as the preferred writing tool for submitting essays. Improved Dictionary - you can't give good grammar help without a world class dictionary - so get one already! Grammar Engine - I would buy Grammarian over in the East Bay or look at buying/licensing Grammarly. Proof Reading - Work to get book publishers over to Evernote and have editors and writers on the premium version with proven workflows. Visual Thesaurus - License/buy a visual thesaurus so you can help folks brainstorm and improve their writing Dictionary Add Ons - Work to get Apple's dictionary support in Evernote and let the host of 3rd party dictionaries plug right in. Reference Citations - Add the ability to link and cite references from within Evernote. I could go on, but just getting a handful of these features in a new release would be amazing! I hope for Evernote's future that you get serious about focus and bringing back some fun to the power of the written word! All the best - Stephen Inoue
  11. 2017 and I think that this thread still receives comments is pretty telling. Being able to add a custom color to notebooks and notebooks stacks is something that would make the Notebook View less dreary.
  12. You need to make it easier for your Evernote users to lobby app developers to get their apps working with Evernote. Back in the day Evernote really had the app developer's mind share the way that DropBox has it today. Your best users have dozens of apps they use that they would love to see working with Evernote! My list: Wunderlist: Ability to sync lists with a Wunderlist Notebook on Evernote would be powerful. Tweetbot: Ability to archive my Tweets with Evernote for archiving Suru: Beautiful visualizer for Tasks and sub tasks TextTool2 - Full blown iOS TextEditor. Would make a powerful front end for Evernote users needing it. Printer Pro - A great utility for getting things printed. Would be nice to have Evernote in places to print from list. Jot (Just Open & Type) - The concept is good, but this app isn't it. Ideally an encrypted text entry app that synced encrypted secure notes with Evernote would be a really good API to let developers implement in their apps. Soulver - One of the great notepad calculators could bring doing back of the napkin calculations to Evernote. PDF Expert - Seriously the app I use to highlight text in PDFs. Pseudo competes with Premium, but a little friendly competeration would be good. TextDetective - A simple scan to text app that would benefit from being able to share to Evernote (Share not even enabled, but text detection is good) I would put your product manager and evangelist back on the job of getting 3rd party support for Evernote back to legendary status. You gave up ground to Google Docs as the world's online word processor, DropBox for storing ***** on the cloud and OneNote for unlimited data and Note Taking mindshare Come on, they don't even have a platform outside of Windows and there is no reason why Penultimate can't be a Microsoft Surface app and bring the fight to their own platform. The way to win this is by being a super stable API for 3rd party apps that need to edit, share and store notes - Evernote!
  13. Quick mini list of cool features to consider for the I'm not Dead release of Skitch... Photos: The crop tool needs to show more contrast. When cropping a white screenshot you can barely see the crop marks. Photos: Add crop presets. Have a social media icon to crop for that ratio. Have a device icon to crop for that device's full screen ratio (way useful for developers, designers are reviewers). Map: Write on a Map feature. Love this feature, but please add satellite view option since often times I'm trying to tell folks exactly where to enter a building. Web: Markup a Web Page's Learn more doesn't specify who's share button. Got lost in the steps. I'll spend some time researching it, but maybe a link at the bottom of the Learn How dumping you in your forum's topic would help folks like me figure it out. Draw an Idea: Love the concept, but there should be more than a Blank Page as an option. Have some Evernote Fun and add graph paper, napkin, etc. Draw an Idea: Your icon shows a cool squiggle, but the default tool is the arrow pointer which doesn't work well for a blank page. Default to squiggle! Settings: The button options for Resize canvas to SMS all have the on/off states sitting on top of the text (I'm on an iPhone 6S+ with old man larger text enabled). Skitch version 3.41 (4529) BTW - Please give the Dev team for Skitch my gratitude for keeping the love alive!
  14. End of iOS skitch is a big marketing fail

    Well Skitch is still in the App store and working fine on my iPhone, so Kudos to the Evernote folks keeping this app going! Hopefully Evernote will put some resources into keeping the app going since I find it really useful. Other companies like TechSmith which own Camtasia and SnagIt don't have as robust of an iOS app (Fuse really pales in comparison). Long Live Evernote!
  15. Note Link is a powerful feature for referencing one note from within another note. I like the feature and would like to use it more. Any chance you can add a note's link to its note info window? Currently when you open a note and choose Note Info you get the Note's name, a field for a URL but no URL Link to the actual note. You have to go back to the main notes window, select it and right click copy note link to be able to get at this info. thanks, Stephen
