I agree this beta version totally dispointing. I spend between 2-4 hours a day on Evernote and I need speed. This new version looks very nice and apealing until you get lost under a white see of white space that doesn;t add any value or functionality. The key idea is that I need to constantly see the whole map of my working activity to then move quickly form one place to the other. With the new beta version I've lost this map so every time I need to move to a new notebook I need to think instead of just "see" and go there. Please reconsider this new design or I'll have to stop using Evernote. Time is money in my case and this new beta version adds a considerably amount of time in my information processing activities.
