I, too, am confused as every time I click "text" from the notification center, the Evernote application opens. It would be very cool if one could actually type in the notification center directly. As it stands now, prior to this, the steps for me were: 1. Tap home button to power up iPhone 2. Swipe to unlock 3. Tap on Evernote app (in my most frequently used row) 4. Tap on Text button 5. Start typing note With this widget, the steps are: 1. Tap home button to power up iPhone 2. Swipe down to access notification center 3. Tap on Text button 4. Start typing note It really only saves one step and it still opens the Evernote application. I'm still on the search for the fastest way to add a quick note into my system. I'd really like to do steps 1 and 2, but then just click in a small text box embedded in the widget and start typing. The easier it is to add a note, the more likely I'm to use Evernote.
