  1. +1 Trying to use Evernote on iOS to complete todo items truly is horrible usability-wise. In fact, this would be one the most the common use cases for me personally with the iPhone app - currently I use it for very little else. However, I disagree with the solutions presented. I tend to do that a lot on this forum - it seems . Making the checkboxes bigger is just a kludge. Making them adjustable by the user is even worse. This is not a vector drawing program nor a desktop publishing app. Especially the latter is what several users seem to want to turn Evernote into. Instead, there should be a separate view (a "todo mode" if you will) that extracts all the todo items from the note and renders a gesture-driven UI focusing only on them. It could also be a separate app(*. Shortcomings in the current functionality means, that I have to have a completely different non-integrating app for this purpose. Which on the other hand makes checkboxes completely useless in Evernote for me. I do not want to divide my todo items up into several places. *) Whatever happened to Egretlist? Evernote bought it and killed it?
  2. I agree that our approaches have similarities. But the reason I'm for a separate, explicit image (gallery) container, is that in my scenario the problem I'm trying to solve is to have several images on a note without any of them stealing all the available space. Additional content would be positioned either above or below the container. I also do not have the need nor the time to resize each image individually - I'm busy taking notes. It would be interesting to hear the use cases you guys are thinking about. Inline images would work as they do now. Of course this approach would limit the things you could do with images, but I'm not expecting Evernote to handle desktop publishing.
  3. It would be nice to have a solution which is designed to solve actual, concrete use cases. Just requesting a general image resize functionality just does not cut it. Particularly, none of the suggestions presented give enough thought on how the resized images should behave on mobile devices. I have to go against the grain here and claim the current functionality is fine as such. I think part of the challenge is that Evernote handles all images as inline elements. One of my use cases revolve around having several images on a note in a gallery-like layout. This could be solved with a responsive image container. The container would always be 100% width, have a fixed (possibly configurable) number of columns and scale the images within to fit. It would work similarly on all devices. Clicking on an image would allow me to focus on it much like previewing an attachment. And resizing should absolutely perform scaling as the image is being displayed. Actual, physical image manipulation (resizing or otherwise) may very well be performed with an external tool such as Skitch.
