  1. Thank you for replying. You are really a guru here : ) Ah, but I have never had any luck with general web searches or forum search concerning Evernote. Sometimes I find my issue solved in an old version 2018. It is not really easy to describe what is going on. I recently spent a whole afternoon describing what my Evernote for Android was doing (or not doing) to support, and asked them what permissions, if any, were required. (Among other things, it got stuck in cycles of "preparing your new app"). They were not really able to answer (understandably) and asked me to re-install the app, but I had done this twice already. Also, "shares to Evernote" from other apps on Android, that I used a lot, now only open Evernote and do nothing. I would like to know if this feature should be working or will be re-added in the future. Can you find the answer to that in reasonable time by searching? I believe a lot of people are having the same problems but don't have the time or the wording to find or make a new post. I still think that it should be easy to find up to date information, such as links to the release notes, and troubleshooting links, at least if there is a major version change. If the advice is to install older versions, there should be links to those, too.This information should, of course, be found by general search as well. This can be just as up to date as the release notes. If you say that forum people are writing on their own time, I understand that they can not be expected to take care of this. In that case, this information could instead be placed on the help pages. I would be grateful, however, if help would not automatically switch (from a search engine entry) to German as soon as I log in. EDIT: Just noticed this new post. Maybe this is what we need.
  2. At the top of this forum, there should be an up to date list of known issues, including solutions if there is something the user can do. A photography software vendor had this feature, and I found the problem I was having including the solution right at the the top. This forum makes it look as though there were individual issues cropping up for some people. In fact, the existing version of Evernote for Android does not work at all, so everybody must have been having problems. I had some correspondence with Evernote support on an earlier version that kept crashing, and I am sure other Premiium users must have written. In addition, the Android version offers to send feedback, so there must be some idea of what is going wrong (although the app crashed when you click ok to send feedback). There has been an update to Evernote for Android during the night; let's see if this is now more stable. I have been fighting these problems for six months now.
  3. Same here. Re.installed from the Amazon app store today, nothing works, keeps crashing. Have manually added all permissions (were not asked for during installation) but no improvement.
  4. What is this forum for if no one ever answers? I clip things in Android about 20 times a day, and waiting half a minute for "setting up your new app" EVERY TIME is not acceptable. Am I missing a permission or something? Is there a fix for this that is nowhere to be found in this forum or elsewhere?
  5. Thank you for explaining and adding the links. Also thank you for responding so quickly at all. I haven't been reading old news, just followed the links in the new CEO's announcements.
  6. There is no way I'm going to encrypt several hundred thousand notes I have collected since the time I joined Evernote. One reason to join at the time was that EN had proprietary servers. Now they have moved to Google. They have even closed the European office. Googles policies promise not to give out data to third parties but nowhere state that they will not use it themselves. They already know more than enough about me and anyone I associate with through Android.
  7. Yes, I followed all the links explaining Google's security policies, but how do we know Google itself is not reading and using our content?
  8. Hi, I have this problem too, because I have many collaged notes where the largest image is a screenshot or a photographed text. That defeats the assumption that the largest image is the most important picture. Anyway, the thumbnail doesn't have to be the most important picture at all - it should maybe be the most graphic, that still conveys information when shown as a small square. I guess I can resize the author portrait or whatever to make it huge/ square.
