Good point about Places. My own approach to using Evernote has been to use the least amount of functions as possible so that I can still navigate my notes and use the app even if features disappear.For example, the intitle: search is crucial for navigating notes in my system (http://www.christopher-mayo.com/?p=367). However, we have just lost the ability to use this search grammar in iOS 7. We have lost the ability to use this search function in the past, though, and we have also lost various navigational tools like sort options and so forth, so I have a kind of "backup" with the random character codes I also use just in case. Each note gets at least one code corresponding to the content -- a journal entry will get a journal code and maybe a few others if it deals with work or maybe some project I am doing. Even without the advanced search grammar, I can navigate my notes just fine. In your case, I'd put the location data at the bottom of each note. This will ensure that you can search on that data. If you only have a few major locations (in my case, my office, certain coffee shops, etc.) then you can use those random codes I mentioned. Ideally, of course, features would never disappear, but I think that in order to remain sane and in control of your notes over the long term (I think I have been using Evernote for five+ years now), you have to be prepared for features to come and go on occasion. It is a work in progress. For the sake of streamlining I just wanted to respond to this here as well as in the original thread about Places, and I will just continue the conversation here from now on: I get that solution when you're just trying to keep track of basic locations, like as you mentioned "Home" "Office", etc, but when you're in the city and need to see which of your client locations are near each other to create an itinerary for the day, it's essentially useless. May as well go back to using Google Maps. Totally agree. But in my case I have a lot of clients & I can manage them only with clients locations in notes. Searching in base of >150 notes is impossible now. So the app is useless for me. Pity. I can still search exactly the same way I searched before. Locations in the title, in the body, no idea what "base" is though. I agree, it's a little glitchy now and then, it loads up every time I need it now and it's not like is not functioning, it is.
