  1. Hi Tom, Please send me your email address linked to your Reflect account to corstiaan@reflectapp.io and I will look into it. Cheers, Corstiaan
  2. Hi @DTLow, Please allow me to shed some light on that. As you are familiar with PayPal, I'll only talk about Stripe. Stripe is a relatively simple (compared to PayPal) service to accept credit card payments. The most important difference is that Stripe does not require the buyer to create a Stripe account to complete the transaction, resulting in a much cleaner payment flow. I believe technically PayPal also allows for just "clean" transactions without requiring a PayPal account but that is secondary to them trying to get the buyer to sign up every step of the way. In many cases Stripe is also a bit cheaper in terms of transaction fee's. Let me know if you have any other questions :-)
  3. Hi Frank, Thank you for your kind words :-). Let me know if you need any further assistance or information. Cheers, Corstiaan
  4. Hi there, I just wanted to post my latest creation here: EverSeller. EverSeller turns your Evernote™ account into an online shop and allows you to sell digital access to your notes, e-books, design assets, courses, stock photo's, recipes — pretty much anything, straight from Evernote™. EverSeller is in public beta since yesterday and I am eager to learn your thoughts. Signup is free. You only pay a 5% fee when you actually sell things. Payment is handled through your own Paypal and/or Stripe account. You can contact me here, through the live chat on the EverSeller dashboard or by just sending me a message => corstiaan(at)everseller(dot)com Cheers, Corstiaan ps I am also the creator of Reflect
  5. Hi. Corstiaan here -- creator of Reflect. Very cool to read people are finding Reflect useful. The use cases stipulated by DutchPete and tomcal are popular among Reflect users and were part of the main reason I decided the world needs a tool like Reflect. Over the last 7 or 8 years - when the whole Cloud thing came into swing - we started storing stuff, upon stuff, upon stuff in the Cloud. I like to compare the Cloud to a messy attic; you're never fully aware whats in there, let alone have actionable knowledge regarding your data when you might actually need it in the current moment. Evernote goes a long way in cataloging and searching your data but it's still up to the user to have it make sense and to organise it the moment data comes in. If the user omits this, then data gets lost under the constant inflow of new data and information. I like to make a very important distinction between the types of data you save in the Cloud, primarily Evernote. On the one hand there is dat you NEED to save (think correspondance, tax filings, contracts, etc). Usually this is boring stuff that you rarely need, but when you need it you want to be sure its there and you don't mind taking a few moments to search for it. On the other hand your have stuff you WANT to save (think e-book clippings, quotes, citations, personal writing, family photo's, interesting articles, etc). This is the kind of stuff you save because you want to circle back to it in the future for the sake of learning, personal or business development or just for plain fun. You just don't know when this will be and there is seldom a sense of urgency, except when studying for a test or something similar. Another trouble is though that you never take a casual stroll through the stuff you WANT to save, especially when you have a lot of data piled up over the years -- the task of wading through all the stuff becomes more daunting every day. Reflect aims to make the latter, stuff you WANT to save, circle back to you at regular intervals and in bite size chucks. The regular interval makes it a great tool for study and learning since Reflect takes care of your progress, creates a schedule with notifications (meaning you do not have to actively search for stuff) and makes sure all material has been covered. The bite size chunks on the other hand makes wading though a lot data very easy and manageable since you only have a selection of notes to review every day (or any other interval you select). @gazumped: I understand your initial concern but Reflect is very forgiving and its not a quiz. It just sends you a daily (of weekly or monthly) notification saying "Look, you asked me to take all the stuff from a selection of notebooks and tags, chunk it up into smaller pieces and prepare it in a simple interface for easy viewing. Well, here is the link to the selection of today's stuff. View it, or don't -- it's fine with me." Reflect does not want to bug you or make you feel guilty in any way for not going through you data. I really enjoy building Reflect for the Evernote community and user feedback has been very positive. I look forward to welcome many of you as users of Reflect :-)
  6. Hi there, Consider the following: I call noteStore.GetNote() and if I immediately need the resources as well, I just set the withResourceData parameter to TRUE. However, I only need the image resources as those will be displayed immediately when the user opens a note in my app. Other resources, like pfds and docs, are better requested when the user explicitly wants this file, by clicking a link (or other visual element) in the note in my app. So, when I call noteStore.GetNote() I set the withResourceData parameter to FALSE and just call the noteStore.getResource() method for each (image) resource I actually need when serving the note, and subsequently perhaps other resources of other mime types as per the users' request. The problem with this approach is that the rate limit for requesting individual resources gets in sight pretty quickly as the Evernote servers judge this approach as "inefficient" use of the api, according to the docs - understandably, as the less intensive route would be to just set the withResourceData parameter to TRUE when getting the note. However, that leaves my app with a few of resources it needs right away, and a couple (or many) it does not/might need and which are better serves to my user as per their request, using the noteStore.getResouce() method. To get all resources immediately when getting the note is, from my app's and user's perspective a very inefficient way of going about, and I would like to know what would be the best approach in solving this using the current api. I very much would like the advice of a Evernote employee in this matter, or anyone who has solved this in a creative manner. Also, if their is a part of the API i am missing which solves this, I will happily invite you to my home where you can lecture me on the importance of reading the documentation properly :-). Thanks, Corstiaan
