  1. Just to be clear, this thread is about IOS. On the Mac (and perhaps other platforms) if you have a note with www.xxx, a search for xxx will find it. On IOS, however, the search will NOT find it. [This can be somewhat disconcerting when you are out of the house, on your phone, and saying to yourself, "This search worked on my Mac, where is the darn note?!"]
  2. I use both a Mac and an iPhone. Just realized that some of the search results do not produce the same outcome. Eg: I recently did a search for entries about the website "netflix" and found 10 notes via the Mac implementation, but only 9 notes on the iPhone. Finally realized that the Mac implementation successfully finds "netflix" in a note containing "www.netflix"; the iPhone implementation fails to find it. a. I would expect the results to be the same on the two platforms. b. And it makes more sense that search would match "foo" in "www.foo"....so the iPhone should be like the Mac.
  3. Well..... a. Evernote wants to be an attractive cross-platform app. I understand that implementations may vary a bit (e.g., iPhone has a smaller screen, and touch); but that doesn't mean that basic functionality should differ. We don't expect some notes or notebooks not to appear on the iPhone, and individual notes should not fail to appear in a search on an iPhone. As a first principle, the results should be consistent on the 2 platforms. b. And, assuming different implementations should be producing consistent results, I do think it is better to treat a period as a word break, and match a word following a period. This will help find more words in web names, www.foo.fie.com; it will also help a user searching for a word where he has failed to insert a space. For example, if a user has accidentally entered "...end of sentence.New sentence..." I would like to have a search find the word "new" [this is how the Mac works today!].
  4. In the software world, "foo" is a generic place-holder for a variable or some arbitrary name. So, as far as I can tell, Evernote search on iPhone fails to match the second word in www.Netflix, www.Amazon, www.Google -- i.e., for all value of foo it fails to find foo in www.foo. (But search does find foo in www.foo on the Mac.) [Foo is thought to derive from Foobar, which is a variant of FUBAR, an acronym for F***** Up Beyond All Repair. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foobar]

  6. A. Here is the scenario, that works OK via the browser: --you select a specific notebook, on the left column. --you type in multiple words in the search box, and the search is done. --you then need to change and redo the search, so you triple-click in the search box, which selects all the words, and you enter a new search, which is done fine, within the selected notebook. B. Unfortunately, this does not work the same way on the Mac implementation: --when you select a notebook, it is inserted at the front of the search box. --you can type multiple words and do a search. --but if you want to re-edit the search, you triple-click on the text, which selects all the words AND THE NOTEBOOK SELECTION. --when you type a new search it replaces the old text AND THE NOTEBOOK SELECTION, so the revised search is performed across all notebooks, not in the notebook you selected. C. Possible change: have triple-click in the search box only select the text, and not also select the notebook specification. If you need to change notebooks, explicitly delete notebook selection.
  7. I allowed my Mac to upgrade to 16.3 -- a really bad mistake! The search bar is either narrower, or does note expand; when you do a search specifying a particular notebook, there is no room left to enter the search term! This makes Evernote UNUSABLE.......I hope there is a bug-fix coming, soon. Does anyone have a work-around? Can we roll-back to the prior version?
