  1. Good lord. Yeah....as opposed to a ONE CLICK SOLUTION which is to check-off the 'done' item. Jeez.
  2. And that's a good thing. As many have stated, Evernote is not a Todo app, it is a keepsafe for data. I would not want the checked items to vanish, it would make the app completely different and require a different workflow. It's rather simple to have an action when viewing a list to hide or delete all checked items. It would not require a completely different app or completely different workflow. This is quite true, and would very easily make Evernote the best application available for the dual purposes of "keeping notes" and "keeping lists" (not incompatible work endeavours), but the mere suggestion is bound to irritate the evangalists, who will continue to tell you to use separate applications for those purposes. Regarding this, from SebR: It's rather simple to do this action by yourself. I've just done it few hours ago. search for todo:true select those you don't want to keep anymore delete. While indeed "simple", this does not even approach the one-click solution.
  3. Regarding the general sentiment, here, that this is not a "to do" application, I was amused to find the following in my inbox, just the other day. The qualification is, of course, a "dedicated" to-do application. Yes, as the note from Evernote says, you can certainly do limited to-do lists in Evernote(I sure do), but that's all it says. They're not out to compete with the Remember the Milks, Todoists, ToodleDos', etc. of the world. I am seriuosly baffled by the resistance to adding functionality to a product, particularly when the suggested functionality does NOT fall outside of the scope of the product. Evernote is already better than Todoist and RTM in so many ways. It just lacks the ability for the user to complete what he starts, in this particular area.
  4. I didn't say it wasn't implemented b/c it's difficult. I said that's not what EN strives to be. It's probably very easy to change the color of the app from green to purple. It's just not something they want to do. I may, perhaps, check back with this application later. The note functionality is great, but the inability to treat a cheklist as a real checklist is a deal-killer. Kudos, though, for having computer functionality as well as mobile functionality. Desktop computing is certainly not dead (I have plenty of people who remind me frequently that they DISLIKE typing with their thumbs!). Regarding the general sentiment, here, that this is not a "to do" application, I was amused to find the following in my inbox, just the other day. Hi there, There is a lot you can do in Evernote. Here's a tip to get you organized before a trip or big work project. Start a new note and create a checklist that you can access from any device where Evernote is installed. Make a to-do list, grocery list, packing list, or reading list. Learn how → To get the most out of Evernote, download it to your computer, phone or tablet. Learn about more ways to use Evernote by reading our blog and Getting Started Guide. Cheers, Evernote Team
  5. I didn't say it wasn't implemented b/c it's difficult. I said that's not what EN strives to be. It's probably very easy to change the color of the app from green to purple. It's just not something they want to do. It's very odd. The application walks right up to it (by allowing the user to insert checkboxes) but then stops short. Quite disappointing.
  6. Although Evernote has some list features, it's not a task or to do list manager, nor does it strive to be. Evernote does not remove checked items from your list. If you need a true list manager, you should use one. There are many good ones out there. It is not difficult, from a developer's standpoint, to implement item-clearing from a note (list), nor would such additional functionality inhibit or take away from existing functions. In all other ways, this is a nice app.
  7. Thank you for the response, and please pardon the length of time it has taken for me to get back to you. Essentially, the feature that is either lacking or eluding me, is this: I have a note in my notebook, and each item in the note has a checkbox next to it (see screenshot, attached). If I simply check the items, they remain on the list. I would like the option for them to either be removed when the note is closed, or a button / menu item to "remove checked items". Something that is very easy / quick to do without a keyboard & mouse (ie...on a mobile device). In such a function, the "note" would remain in the "notebook", but would no longer contain the items which have been checked-off. Every other function of this software is great, particularly that it exists both for desktop computing and for our mobile devices.
  8. All indications were that this software was precisely what we were looking for. We have the following requirements: 1. There must be an Android version (ok) 2. There must be a PC version, compatible with XP > W8, which installs (not simply a web-based version) (ok) 3. There must be a task list type feature with checkboxes (ok) After installing this, and being quite happy about the whole thing, I have discovered the fourth requirement: 4. There must be a way to clear checked items, other than text editing (yes, I know we can delete the items just like other text...but that's ridiculous) Seriously, why bother having checkboxes if it is not possible to clear the items with which they are associated from the overall list? Who wants to see a list of the items which they have completed?? Colornote has this.....but it notably lacks #2 on my list, and that renders it unusable for us. So, unless I am simply clueless and am missing the feature which actuates #4, here, this software will be uninstalled, and we'll pursue another solution. Help?
