  1. I do enjoy the Moleskine Evernote Smart Notebook, as I do capture several of the pages, almost always using the smart stickers for the handwritten notes I intend to capture. I am enticed to always get free stuff, particularly free stuff I enjoy and use very frequently — like Evernote or stationary. Lol

    i will admit I have used non-EN Moleskine notebooks and even amassed a collection of unused smart stickers to use for that who book and this present book I am using - not all in  consecutive order. This present book is not a Moleskine either but just a promotional item from my company. I am hoping it is to blame for the poor performance of the recognition of the smart stickers. 

    In short - switch. You clearly don't need the stickers, the points, and the only other reason I can use is it's green accents. Lol (I happen to like the green)

    As for the 90's clip art - hilarious!  I actually keep my Moleskine in a cover by Inkleaf and my colleagues love it. https://www.inkleafleather.com/shop/moleskine-cover

    Is is possible there is something in this version that is causing the prompt to come up for me to sign into my iTunes account when I launch the app? I'm getting this prompt a lot, and it is only happening when I launch Evernote, and I am definitely already logged in (I've not only logged in several times, but my apps update without me having to log in). I feel like it is something with the Evernote app that is causing this to pop up repeatedly for me. Is this possible?



    many many people are complaining about experiencing this prompt. 

    Without providing any personal details, im wondering:

    1. What type of EN account donyou have (Free or paid), and

    2. If you have a paid account, do you pay through iTunes or directly to EN?

    the reason I ask is im presently using premium paid for by EN points (?) and I'm wondering it we can narrow down and connecting to why the prompt is happening.

    Nice to read a positive post

    Likewise, I'm "embracing the change"

    I'm on 8.0.4 now.  It solved a few issues but also added a problem with shortcuts.  

    I'm looking forward to the next patch to solve the iTunes prompt issue

    I feel your pain with the iTunes prompt. When I first had the issue I submitted a ticket. Then prompted them that there was no reply to my ticket after week. But I highlighted my question that I'm riding out a free year of premium right now (thank you EN points system!) so is the iTunes prompt less of an EN issue and more of a "hey, iTunes here; you used to give us your money for EN, we notice you aren't doing that...can we have your money now?"

    In short, im wondering if everyone, no matter if they pay through iTunes or not, is getting the prompt. 

  4. That is a very fair assessment. 

    Personally, although I was taken aback at several of the changes, im one of the lucky few who uses my EN premium account in a way that these changes didn't limit me near as much as many who have voiced their concerns in the forums. 

    My notebooks, note names, tags and stacks are all working fine within the new format. 

    Althought I would agree with many that there seems to be no speed increase. 

    It's not perfect, it's perhaps not better. But it's different and I'm giving it a try. For me, it's working 'as well' as the other version. It just needs a bit of a boost for me to say there is any improvement.

    Well, after trying the newest app update I've given up on Evernote after years of use and I'll be switching to Microsoft OneNote soon.  Over the past year I drank the koolaid and changed my entire Evernote data management structure to center around Tags.  This is what the Evernote blogs told me to do, this is what all the Evernote expert users advised was the best way to manage with Evernote.  So, after weeks and weeks of rearranging all my notes into dozens of logical Tag hierarchies I converted and started working within that system - on my iMac, my iPad and iPhone.  Then along comes this iOS update and completely blows the Tag management system out of the water and into the far backwaters of the process.  I have no clue what the people at Evernote were thinking when they made this change but they sure have invoked the rule of unintended consequences for me.   Because as a consequence of this one seemingly unexplainable decision I am departing their product (for which I pay them an annual fee) and converting to another provider who actually offer a much more robust product platform with many more features.  Sorry guys, you blew it for me, big time!


    Bottom line up front (BLUF): I tried OneNote and hated it because I was so used to EN.

    Best of luck to you in your migration. I'm an EN premium user and have been for a few years now. I have been trying all of the other note applications and I found EN to be the best one (for me) even with the cost of premium. 

    I tried a migration to ONE NOTE. I must say it mad me laugh. It didn't hold up well. I did not like the formatting and I felt that if you didn't have a crystal clear vision of how you wanted the note to look once you had inserted considerable data - you were going to have a lot of work ahead of you. In short - it has lots of features - to be too complicated and not very intuitive. I am sure that OneNote is a great application for some, by my systems for organizing EN were 'not transferrable' as much as I had hoped.

    My recommendation (FWIW) is patience. EN is trying to improve, and slough it may not appear to be a win with v8, but sometime there are bumps in the road to success.

    My note data has disappeared, numerous back and forth testing and does not transfer back to my devices... serious problems with this.. appears that the transfer process is ailing and definitely not working properly... I filed a support ticket and have not heard back one peep from Evernote on that.


    I experienced a similar problem with the release of v8 where I had a single note where the title, tags and date were available but nothing else. I managed to find I could view my missing table/data in the web and Mac versions. As of today, miraculously I can se the table/data in iOS. This was after I also submitted a trouble ticket and received zero feedback.

    Have you tried the web version on a different computer?

    What's driving me crazy with this new release is that it keeps asking me to sign into my itunes account. I have to put in my password. ugh!!

    Also, I detest the fact that you took away the ability to scroll down my notes with the alphabet on the side, so i could tap down to the "s" notes, for example. This has severely slowed down the efficiency of the app. New releases should not TAKE AWAY functionality, it should ADD to it.

    May I recommend rephrasing your comment and adding it as a "returning feature request" in the appropriate forum?

    Twot items:


    1) Always asking for password as noted above on Iphone 6

    2) I can't stand the "red indicators" but the new Evernote has 1 indicator "red circle" - been trying to get rid of it for 5 days - HOW !!! ??



    Everyone is getting the same issue with the requests for iTunes passwords.

    For your notification issue, I suggest opening EN and selecting the Notebook drop down. Select "Reminders" and then open the reminder that has a present or past due date. This may clear your notification.


  9. Over the last few years I have used several different Moleskine Evernote notebooks. As my jobs changes within my company I found I wanted my Moleskine stickers to mean something else.

    so what happens when I change them? What happens to past notes with that sticker — nothing?

    does it even matter if, when, or how often I change the sticker meanings? And do those meanings sync across all of my platforms?

    I just updated and, although it is working fine, there are two things that are annoying me:

    • On the iPad, the sidebar cuts the device name + WiFi indicator + Network indicator. it makes really hard to see that there is some network going on.
    • The icon has a count indicator but there is no indication of what it is counting. Is it the number of reminders? The reminders for the day? Work chat? WHAT? If you're going to use the count badge, at least point in the app what I should check.



    Same here!

    Be very careful when using the new version! There us a high risk missing notes:

    1. When you delete a note it is not moved to the trash but completely deleted!
    2. It may happen that not the selected note gets deleted but another one and with problem 1 it is gone for ever!



    Uh...that isn't true at all in my case. I still have 800+ notes in trash (looking on the iPad version) even the ones I just deleted — including test notes.

    Seems really great.....(there is a but coming)

    It is great and stable on my iPhone 6S plus,

    ...i can't open it on the iPad Air. Crashes 5 times in a row. Tried closing all other apps and restarting....yup still crashes. 


    Ok. Deleted it and reinstalled it. No problems on the iPad Air now. It has only crashed once on the iPhone. 

    Mom only disappointed with the loss of presentation mode. I used that when i was "selling EN" to new folks. Lol 

    I'm now super-anxious for incorporating 3D Touch! I hope that the wait is not long.

    I have one Evernote account (free version) and my wife has the Premium version. I would like to use my wife's account for joint account. How to transfer all the data my account to hers? Thank you.



    the Guru's speak the truth! Don't share the account. Share notebooks and notes between accounts. 

    In my house, I have the Premium account and my wife and teenage son have basic accounts. 

    This allows me to be the "main record keeper" of all of the document and records that we desire stored in Evernote while they normally make notes for themselves and infrequently access the archives of material I store. It comes in extremely handy when I am at work and one of them needs something, like a copy of a medical record, a clause from a lease or mortgage, a health insurance card number, etc. 

    I recommend this method of sharing; it has been working very well for me and it's catching on with my close friends who are married with kids.

  15. I don't have fancy sketches to save, but for all of the letters, documents, identification cards and certificates I save, the document scanner works well. I save both versions of ID cards in the event they are lost while traveling. 

    I use the EN Notebook for the ease of capturing the handwritten notes and I use the stickers to effectively categorize my notes in volumes. I will admit the it's less about the stickers and more about the free premium that comes with the slightly more expensive Moleskine Notebook
