I agree. This was badly thought-out. Blithely throwing reminders at the top of the UI when the whole point of Evernote is surfing your data, well that is a bad design choice. On a laptop that small space is very annoying. To say "Clear your reminders and it goes away" is just another way of saying there are no good options to use reminders. On my phone do you know where reminders show up on my screen? NOWHERE. They sit in the background until some pre-determined date. To have a list of reminders on top all the time seems silly when we have a quite useful precedent in reminder UIs plenty of other places. So, maybe I'm coming late to this conversation but I do wish Evernote would fix this. Otherwise I can't use reminders (can't afford the space).
