  1. This article https://www.nowsecure.com/blog/2014/07/23/evernote-vulnerabilities-all-your-notes-belong-to-me/ suggests that it is indeed a security issue. Evernote data on the SD card wasn't encrypted and was therefore accessible to untrusted applications. Rather than work on encryption, EN seems to have pulled SD storage altogether on the basis that "the Android platform has matured and the amount of internal storage capacity in phones has increased, reducing the forcing factors that caused us to need to use the SD card in the first place". Well I for one beg to differ. Evernote alone currently occupies over 2GB on both of my 16GB devices. It also seems to me that an app aiming to be a ubiquitous workspace for all our stuff could only benefit from offering encryption for sensitive data and fewer limitations on how much of it we have. When I asked EN support about SD storage a few months ago, they told me there were no current plans to bring it back. I would like this to change.
  2. +1 for this request! Google's restrictions re: manipulating external storage are very frustrating. If they make such a functionality impossible then we can only hope they're changed in the future. If they merely make it difficult, (or if it's Evernote's choice - the KB article mentions "security reasons") then I'd still like to push EN for an update to the app. As a side note, the French version of the KB page taunts me by happily trilling about SD storage, so it must be out of date: https://evernote.com/intl/fr/contact/support/kb/#/article/23168602
  3. I'm on the same page as the last couple of commenters. Can we please not have this 'feature' on by default, at least? I had no idea it existed (the only thing that seems to get talked about is the facility to send messages to specific notebooks by appending them to the subject line) and it was driving me crazy too. Poked around for a good 40 minutes before finding this thread, which is a big relief at least.
  4. This is a godsend for the Galaxy Note, thanks for the awesome update! I remember asking a while ago for Skitch to be made a bit more handwriting-friendly, but this is an even better implementation than I was hoping for.
