  1. The single editing feature that would help me most in my daily work is a fully functioning outlining capability with nesting/hiding and the ability to drag bullets within an outline. OneNote has a limited capability in this regard. The best implementations are in the Circus Ponies Notebook app and in the OmniGroups OmniOutliner app. Thanks!
  2. Notability, Notesuite, Noteshelf and Goodnotes have various strengths and weaknesses. My favorite for overall usability is Notability. ALL are VASTLY superior to Penultimate (old version) and INFINITELY superior to the new version. Notability also now has a Mac version. Notability and Notesuite also have superior sound recording and text editing capabilities. When I am taking live notes, I do it electronically in Notability with an iPad and then transfer in .pdf format to Evernote when I'm done editing. If Evernote simply partnered with one or several of these companies to integrate their software with Evernote, users would be infinitely better off than they are today. Evernote has clearly demonstrated a lack of core competency in integrating handwriting and drawing (not to mention quality control and product management) How they could have unleashed this *****-wear to a committed user base? This should be a wake up call that focus on customers is getting lost in the enthusiasm to "change the world."

  4. I have been using Notability (a great note taking product) for several years, while waiting and hoping that Evernote might arrive at a real note-taking solution. Notability has most features one might want--except for tight Evernote integration). Since Evernote is late to the handwritten note and note taking party you might look at some of the several excellent apps out there: #1. Notability, #2. Goodnotes, #3 Notetaker HD, #4. Notesuite. All of these companies have development departments that are much smaller than Evernote's, yet Evernote (at least for IOS) has no solution with a properly-functioning "zoombox", a good ability to mix text and written notes, make drawings, etc. Which ALL of these other apps already have. If you cannot do better, why not buy or partner with one of these app makers--they are Light Years ahead of Evernote. Also I received an email indicating that an "update" is on the way since Evernote realizes (now?) that the initial release wasn't up to snuff. REALLY. It took me all of two minutes to realize that the app is fundamentally unusable, and I am not even a frequent user. Did anyone in the senior management of Evernote actually try to use this on an iPad with a stylus????? This is does not inspire confidence in a company that wants me to store all of my important data with them. If this is the level of Quality Control, what is to prevent my hundreds of Premium Evernote from being scrambled during the next update of Evernote???? Did someone at Evernote actually believe that this was an improvement that users would be happy with???? BTW. Usually, when a new software release doesn't work, isn't the normal practice to "revert" to the previous working version. Evernote should be posting an "update" to the previous working version. I don't see how this is a quick fix, since there are so many things that are fundamentally inferior both to other products on the market and to the previous version of Penultimate (see the rest of this forum or the current posts in iTunes!). Very disappointing.
