  1. Hello, As of today, the IOS app crashes upon launching, i've tried everything to help fix the issue. After deleting the app, I went to redownload the beta but it NO LONGER SHOWS! I was shocked to see that it was gone. Anyone have any suggestions or recommendation?
  2. I know right? I actually am holding out for what the new EVERNOTE looks like and see. I do feel though this CEO is a lot more responsive and in tune with customers than previous teams. I felt like in the past there was such a disconnect with the users and what EVERNOTE was doing as a business. This team seems to really have a change in focus.
  3. This is been honestly, my biggest frustration with using the iOS version of Evernote. It is so difficult to you’ll have the default font size be so small. I am either adjusting the font every time or not even using the app. It’s such a surprise to me that this hasn’t been resolved in the past as I always felt like I was the only one that had difficulty trying to read. And I have 20/20 vision.
  4. This is been true for sometime and I appreciate you spending time to articulate it. I thought it was just me! It’s not just frustrating for taking notes but I also noticed the same issue when working with reading PDFs. When I switch the app or jump around, it’s like the app has to restart every time And you have to start over where you left off which can be honestly be frustrating when you’re trying to be productive and have a sense of flow.
  5. This is very true and has been a lacking feature / update. I’ve been saying for years how the formatting capabilities have been limited, hard to use and overall not efficient.
  6. I like the facelift, perhaps you could expand on that? What kind of changes are you looking for? Also, maybe posting something in feature request would get some traction and more people
  7. Hello fellow Evernoter’s. I’m in need of some help. Would anyone know of a way to program the new IOS 12 shortcut app to better format or take a note into “read” mode? I’m looking to have better visibility of my Evernote’s. The small font and text style can be challenging for me to enjoy reading Evernotes. If there is a way or workaround for reading mode that would help me a ton.
  8. Thank you! Yeah spaces has a cool UI and feel it would be beneficial for both personal and business use. That cool your in Realestate, I have many friends that are in that space. Also, have many friends in marketing, more so in the personal development space. Where are you located? Check out the new templates in the latest updates, they have a bunch of cool templates for planning.
  9. Thanks for the mention and I appreciate you reading!
  10. Yes, you have listed something i’ve been saying for 2-33 years. The IOS editor is sore on the eyes and miserable to edit. Yeah you should have to learn how to do scripts and work arounds. The application should be a simple and straightforward editor that allows flexibility and good formatting. Good to see I’m not the only one. May I suggest, posting another thread outlining what you’d like in the “feature request” section of the forums?
  11. For me it’s about not being in Microsoft ecosystem I really dislike their business model and applicstions. So I might be biased. Evernote overall has this feel and integration that makes it stand out not just from one note but many note application. I like the tight integration not just with other apps but also Apple. The clipper is more prominent, simplistic ui compared to onenote. Overall it’s about preference, they have identical feature set and both heavy hitters but playing video “/audio, scanning feature and integration stand out for me as Evernote clear winner
  12. I don’t get notion or the appeal of it. Complicated. Evernote is by far the best still for my uses.
  13. Try in web clipper switching the type to simple article. If your having issues still simplifying formatting And doing some cleaning up will do the job. Most note taking apps don’t do a good job of clipping. Evernote from my experience is the best but nothing is perfect either
  14. Just change password, use two way authentication feature and if you have sensitive information start encryption with Evernote feature or saferoom app
  15. After reading headlines, of Evernote’s recent woes, I started to shake my head ... again. This isn’t the first time reading controversy headlines about Evernote. In the past few years there been more negative press than positive. Rising membership prices, privacy concerns, downsizing and now the Death spiral (higher ups leaving). It doesn’t appear to look good for Evernote but for all we know it could just be fine. In a moment I’m going to share my insights and how Evernote can make a “shift” in a better direction. But before I do, it’s without suggesting that a lot of people have a grim outlook (within and external of this community) despite recent changes at Evernote. Avid and passionate users such as myself have a ill feeling for what may happen to our beloved green elephant. Maybe it’s the note industry, maybe it’s just the people running Evernote, maybe it’s just there’s too much competition that only the innovative ones stay profitable. I don’t think Evernote in a dire situation but I feel this is a pattern that keep repeating itself. In yoga there’s this saying, “you repeat what you don’t repair.” At this point it seems, whether or not Evernote is doing fine or steering for the worse, I feel they are loosing the confidence of the passionate loyal user base. And I feel it’s becuase Evernote may be making the same mistakes again and again. But, here are some of my insights and suggestions as to what is missing. Evernote has focused on team development, then focused on eliminating the noise and getting clarity on core functionality, then focused on focused on business enterprise with spaces, then focused on social media, then not to recently Evernote then did a rebrand /refresh. But at what point do they realize they must get back to their user base??? The loyal user base the ones who just take notes. The student, the small business owner, the creative, the busy mom and anyone who wants to “remember everythig.” Improving note taking experience seems to be the most important yet forgotten “ingredient” Evernote has fallen out of touch with. Being in sales all of my life there are acouple fundimental flaws Evernote is repeatedly missing each year. 1- People buy the benefit of the benefit. Example is spaces people don’t use Spaces to use the “what’s new” feature or even to keep on top of their teams correspondence. The benefit of the benefit might be as a business owner “I don’t want to have the stress of things falling through and having team forget things” 2- in the sale conversation I ALWAYS listen more than I talk. The more you tell the less you sell. Listening to your customer, they tell you what they want, what they don’t want, etc. And this type of dialing builds a deep level of trust because when a person feels heard and understood they will buy from you and only you, even though you charge more than your competitors. I feel Evernote higher ups have ignored the day to day user and overall user experience. There’s times when working on a project or in a sales process or trying to research and write and using Evernote is frustrating to navigate and use. Something as simple as a small font can really make work more difficult than it has to be. Or not being able to annotate PDFs with freedom or flexibility. Have you tried jumping in and out of annotating PDFs in Evernote? It’s miserable. When you look at the note taking applications that people are moving to they are typically note taking apps that look better. Have a better UI and text editor. Most notably Bear comes to mind. Having attracted many people from Evernote I feel it’s as though it’s because of the look and feel of the editor. Distraction free writing, more font options (sizes, font types and even spacing), more formatting choices (H1, H2, etc) and many useful editor tools. Evernote has many features and useful functions that Bear doesn’t have. So it makes me wonder, why have people made the transition? I think it’s because of the look and feel when people are taking notes. You want to be able to get lost in writing not squinting to see what you wrote. You want to be able to have attractive typography that you can structure and organize your notes with easy. You want to be in the state of “flow” when your researching and taking notes. Lastly, what I will also say about features is that in order to charge more you must offer MORE value. Over the course of the years I’ve noticed that Evernote focused on stability and improving core features like search. And that’s very important. However, people don’t buy stability necessarily, it just pushes them away when things are unstable. Introducing new features and upgraded features is what attracts new users and keeps fan base excited using a platform that they keep EVERYTHING IN.
