Having this exact issue, and I have been burned by it on multiple occasions. Scenario: Evernote installed on iPhone and Mac OS laptop Evernote open on iPhone, but not as the active application. Currently viewing a reminder list Evernote open on laptop. Open reminder list on laptop, edit extensively. Press sync. View Evernote app on iPhone, reminder list is the old one before edits. Sync on iPhone, iPhone reminder list overwrites the new one on the laptop.All changes lost. User extremely unhappy.
