  1. Thank you for the clear explanation. I'm sorry to hear it's indeed not a bug Aggressive marketing is so much not my thing that such "features" are urging me to drop the product.
  2. Evernote for Windows I removed the upgrade button and relaunched Evernote. So far so good. I'll let you know if it'll pop up again. So, this annoying behavior of the upgrade button is not a feature but a bug? It's very hard to differentiate between the two with aggressive marketing. I'll be very glad to know it's a bug.
  3. No. It's just a fact. Like a fact that I too use Evernote and it works for me in some ways. Several facts do not constitute complete statistics. To get this strait and for the record: pretty much all I said in this thread is just my opinion. I do not insist it's infallible and not even plain wrong. And I do not expect everybody to agree with me. Also, as you no doubt have noticed, my English is far from perfect. It makes me harder to understand. I apologize for this and ask to cut me some slack I try to be clear as I can.
  4. Of course. It's just my opinion. Does this fact makes it bad or wrong or whatever? I haven't heard any counterarguments. And I see value in Evernote too, I said it many times. For me Plus is worth the price Evernore asks for a jotting down place. Yet. But it's not "me" and not "now" I'm talking about. I trying to predict the future. Will the pro users continue to use Evernote and pay? I seriously doubt that.
  5. How come? To remember everything first you have to store everything in Evernote. You don't do so, you said.
  6. Isn't it is the idea Evernote is promoting all these years? "Remember everything"? They failed this promise, both technically and ideologically. That's what I'm trying to explain. I do too. But for nothing else. What I'm trying to say is that many other solutions exist that can be used to do the same, and soon Evernote will find hard to justify it's prices. For many it's already so. Pay 30-70 bucks for some obscure not-really-needes features while there is free Apple Notes, Google Keep, Simplenote, Pocket, and *several* practically free Evernote knock-offs? No, it's not enough t
  7. Yes, exactly. But after much thought about it I see this as the main problem of Evernote as a product. Why I think so is too long to describe. A few weeks time Anybody want to pay for the article I need to write to explain my arguments? No? Bad editor can be fixed, it's mostly technical challenge. But underlying inability to structure data is the real problem. You may not feel it but it's there. It's like GTD: nobody thinks he needs it until he gets the idea. Nobody thinks they need to structure their notes for pretty much any serious work (large amounts and complexity, like hundreds or
  8. These all are steps in the right direction. And the fact that they are happening is encouraging. FINALLY they remembered about basic usability. But they are constricted by large existing codebase, different client discrepancies, but most of all - by too primitive data model, IMHO. For example, the most interesting feature from the mentioned, "simulated tag inheritance", is implemented only on Windows (Mac or iOS clients does not support it, and web client does not too), does not work with "-tag:" queries, and basically is just a pure Windows client interface hack. it's a horrible use
  9. In Evernote defense, I must say that IMO, despite all, Evernote is still the best general-purpose note taking solution available. And they have one feature that I am willing to backup with my money: they do not sell my data to the ad agencies. There is not that many solutions you can say that about. Still. The mandatory "upgrade" toolbar button is very obnoxious nevertheless
  10. Other then the prices change and cutting freeloaders I don't see any real changes. IMO the product itself is flowed in many ways, in ideology and in implementation alike. If they want to appeal to the pro users in order to fetch premium prices on increasingly competitive market they have to think about features those pro users need, dammit. Well, we shall see. I hope for the best, but i'm ready for the worst...
  11. You see, at one point I loved Evernote. These days are long gone... And it's really sad. Evernote had chance to become a GREAT product. But they blew it IMO.
  12. I understand. All in all, I should had been more polite... But I really can't find polite words for this. A raw spot was touched :-/
  13. Nope. I'm not talking about ads. They are obnoxious too but I'm talking about "upgrade" button in the Evernote Windows client toolbar that pops up after deleting it. Feel free to customize your toolbar, our precious paying customer! That's what I'm angry at. The post you are referring to has nothing to do with the issue. I agree, I'm not polite. It's on purpose. IMO that genius that devised this "feature" deserves it. Maybe it make him/her to think a little if he/she can do so. I'm very angry at such obnoxious policies and IMO alienating paying customers is not a wise strategy. So I want
  14. Hi there, really wise marketing guys at Evernote! So, you "extorted" the Plus subscription from me. I'm not that keen on Evernote as I was a few years ago when I was a premium user but I stil use it for some purposes. Looking at competitors I see no better solution. It's not that Evernote is really good it's just that others are not good at all. In particular, the main migrating choice of many people, OneNote, has horrible data model IMO. So I decided to stay and pay. I'm not accusing you or anything in "forcing" me to pay. it's your right to set any price you like and you still have the
  15. Yes, of course I know. The point is, this is so inconvenient that I don't ever use it. If so, then why bother with systems that will require me to search by two tags? Inconvenient? Not for me. Works fine. Why bother with two tags? More accurate search results. Well, if it works for you, it works for you. For me it doesn't work.
