  1. never thought I would, but I have just cancelled my premium subscription of my beloved evernote. what a sad day. considering the lack of feedback from the company on roadmap, on which of the plentiful axed features they plan to re-introduce, the unclear timeline of when the fully featured "legacy" apps will stop working ("...only temporarily available while we work to bring a few of the legacy features to our new apps." (my highlighting of the official wording)) and the complete breakdown of my workflows in V10, I do not see a way forward with a company neglecting users and use cases as much as evernote currently does. considering the content of the crisis PR interviews by Ian the message of frustration has not been heard clearly enough by the evernote team, so all there is left for me to do is to vote with my feet and leave. this is the only message they have to listen to, as ultimately it pays their salaries and if a substantial number of paying customers cancel they might react after all. should things improve dramatically I might come back, but I am not counting on it. Devonthink here I come... thank you very much for the past ten years - it was fabulous while it lasted...
  2. not quite for me as it is unclear how long the fully featured apps (I somehow refuse to call them "legacy"..:-)...) will continue to work. initial indication was not for long...I have exported all my notes and am actively looking for a replacement. once I am happy with one (Devonthink being increasingly likely) I will move and not look back. if that is a wider trend as I suspect it will hurt EN quite a bit. too bad there is no better communication from them on what to expect coming back/up...
  3. well, let's also be clear: he did *not* say, everything is going to be ok. he did remain vague and unclear as about what will be coming back and what will not. in fact from current communications it seems some stuff will *not* come back (local notebooks anyone?). that's precisely their ***** up: not being clear on what to expect. the current release is clearly inadequate on so many levels but without clear communication all we can do is speculate, wait and suffer some more or run for the hills....
  4. I stand corrected! I have just asked nimbus support if such a feature was on their roadmap only to get feedback within literally 4 minutes that Nimbus notes does support local notebooks/folders! now this is *really* cool (for me)!..:-)
  5. as we are talking about nimbus here, I have just stumbled over this, which (if authentic) is quite a different approach to talking about roadmap than EN's: https://trello.com/b/yd03OcAi/nimbus-note-roadmap still not a solution for me as nimbus is holding the keys to encryption and thus data cannot be private on their systems, but a huge positive difference in terms of transparency (again if indeed authentic). am more and more leaning towards Devonthink (am a mac user) though in case EN does not re-introduce some substitute to local notebooks to keep data truly private *and* manages to miraculously speeds up V10...
  6. let's look at this interview at what it is: firefighting PR. Ian is picking out numbers that support his case trying to calm down the premium user base, certainly not the numbers that would be commercially sensible to look at nor the numbers / key performance indicators he certainly uses to run the business. in other words, I would not get hung up on the numbers, they are being quoted to tell a story, not to discuss what is actually happening. also what is most revealing in all firefighting PR is what is *not* being talked about. in this case I think the massive performance issues of the new app were the most interesting omission to me...
  7. thanks for sharing, this is certainly an interesting interview. too bad I seem to be using the product all "wrong" and am falling into at least four "5% categories" of features only a small fraction of people seem to be using (Ian is referring to that in the video). as always with these firefighting PR interviews what's almost more interesting than the content is what's *not* being talked about: the glaring performance issues of the new app, especially with higher note counts...
  8. I have been (and still am) really annoyed with V10 and what EN has done to "my" beloved product. my main issue being the removal of the local notebooks and thus no longer having the ability to truly leave my data private in the new app. but that's not the point here. with the distance of a few days I am thinking EN may be coming up with a solution for that use case eventually. if not I'll just have to sadly move on. more fundamentally I am getting very curious about the performance issues of V10 and what that might mean for the future of the new approach of the electron based platform: to avoid tempering with my production environment I have installed V10 with my approx. 15k notes on a separate machine. the app is really slow and unresponsive in comparison with the native client, even by comparison to other web apps. I was not quite sure why that is but suspected the number of notes might slow down the app. so I logged out, deleted the data, uninstalled the app, re-installed it and started new with a new and empty account I had registered. while the app was still substantially slower than the native app, it had sped up a lot compared to the 15k notes account. if this experience is not a one off, but consistent it would be a substantial problem for the new framework as the accounts with bigger note numbers would be hit hardest by the downsizing of the evernote apps with V10. these accounts however will on average likely be the premium customers making up the revenue base of evernote. as a disclaimer, I am not a software engineer, yet still a technologist, and I am somewhat at a loss how such an issue could be fixed to begin with as obviously the app needs to deal with all the notes there are. also additional features will add more complexity, which will likely tend to slow the app down even more...gosh, I hope I am wrong, and in absence of proper communication from EN directly maybe some users with more experience in software development can make the point I am wrong. but if I am not EN might have moved itself into the strategic dilemma of p**** off its paying customers most on the performance side and making things worse by slowly adding features back in that slow the app even more...
  9. didn't know where it would fit best...feel free to delete the post in the less appropriate group...
  10. hi all, with the mess EN created with "evernote light" / version 10 and by reducing the fully featured apps to legacy a key question starts to concern me: does any of you have experience with the Big Sur betas and the Mac client 7.14? does it continue to work in Big Sur? sadly wether or not I will upgrade my OS for now depends on whether the EN legacy client will still work. how on earth did we get to this place?!...well at least my testing of alternatives is in full swing... thanks for any pointers / experiences...

  12. you do realize though, that technically your notes in evernote can be read by evernote as well, correct? that's why I am so annoyed with the removal of local notebooks as there no longer is a way to keep notes truly private in evernote. a show stopper for me.
  13. well, on IOS that's precisely what is happening (and can be reproduced in the current version). I am sure it is not intentional, but it is happening nervertheless...
  14. agreed, but prior to "Evernote Light" aka V10 Evernote at least had the local notebooks, which was my workaround for sensitive data. e2e encryption would be even better, but outside of joplin and devonthink (mac) few solutions seem to offer that....
  15. Joplin would be another option for local storage and/or encryption...like devonthink it allows for importing of your evernote data...am currently looking into both...
