  1. I think it is reasonable to expect that if I open up a note on the android app, that the note should open. It is also a reasonable request to expect that if I change a note that it synchronizes with the cloud properly so I can open it back up on another device. That's pretty much how Evernote used to work. And those are really the only 2 things I complained about.
  2. The reason most of the apps you use are broken are... 1. The definition of "MVP" has changed from "Most Valuable Player" to "Minimum Viable Product" and that is the stated goal of all software teams now. 2. They fired all of their testers and replaced them with customers. The apps get released full of bugs because some manager said it would be ok. 3. They replaced their customer support with a "user forum" where a bunch of unpaid "fan boys" do it for free instead. Big Tech has been infiltrated by communists, so what you are witnessing is what happens when communism takes over
  3. I have a premium account but I don't have time to deal with some tech support douche in India reading a script from his screen when I can do a google search to bring up the same result he/she got. I did dump the app, empty the cache, data, re-installed it. The app is still a broken hot mess — BUT it does seem to allow me to open a note and make an edit without creating an automatic conflict and saving a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, copy of the note. However notes take up to a minute to load, EVEN when they are marked as offline notes. In fact sometimes they never appear and you have to go bac
  4. The fact that the review panel on the Google Play store is a never-ending scrolling list of ONE STAR reviews now *(and people complaining about the same problems I am) proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Evernote knows their app is a pile of junk and that they have ZERO intention of caring about it (as usual). The app has just gotten to the point they finally motivated me to move on — but this tool has been an integral part of my workflow for over 10 years so that's not an easy task.
  5. The slowness isn't my biggest issue. It's the fact that every single time I open an existing note it automatically creates a CONFLICT version of the note and then I end up with 6 copies of the note (with each one having a slight difference that is impossible to figure out and put back together).
  6. Evernote for Android has been rendered completely useless to me since the latest updates, starting 2 or 3 months ago,. I mean so completely broken at the most basic level I am astounded that they released it. Notes take 30 seconds to 2 minutes to open — IF they open at all. These could be OFFLINE notes, online notes (with a 200mbps connection speed), or starting a NEW note. More than half the time I have to keep going back, tapping the note again, going back, tapping again 3 or 4 times to get a note to open. THEN if I open ANY existing note for ANY reason and make ANY
  7. Ever since upgrading to the newest version of Evernote, as a paid user for several years. I am ditching this broken piece of trash for good,. My god, I don't even know where to begin. As a UX manager to begin with, there is ZERO chance the product team at Evernote isn't fully aware that they are releasing completely useless, bug-riddled trash whenever they push out an update. Let's see, in half an hour today I found 4 or 5 notes that will not open on the Android app. All I get is a blank page whenever I try and view the contents. One or two of these are OFFLINE notes. The Androi
  8. That button set doesn't exist at all in the version of the app I am using. I have way too many demos going on this week to go switch version numbers right now. And now I know why I hate the Windows version so much that I've been using — assuming the Windows is now on version 10 and is a lot different. After my current deadlines wrap up and I have some breathing room I am going to try out the newest mac version and probably come back here to complain about something new.
  9. LMFAO... Maybe they can fix the "check for updates" button which always brings this up... I was wondering why the windows version is so much different. I am almost afraid to try the newest one but I will. Even my newest macbook that's less than a year old is running the same version. So I am adding "letting users know there's a new version out there" as a bug.
  10. I am using 7.14 and it still exists. It has existed for YEARS and still gives me problems. I am sure it will exist in version 234922.344432 because they never fix ANYTHING with this app. I have random notes all the time where you can no longer right-click and "annotate this image" anymore. It won't show up in the menu. But then I can start a new note or go to another note and it works just fine.
  11. I just ran into this issue again today. This app is such a miserable pile of trash. I can't count the number of bugs people have been reporting for 10+ years in these message boards that still exist.
  12. I am pretty sure you file it here, and then sit back and wait as they ignore everyone who has the same problem for the next 10 years. That seems to be the case any time I am having an Evernote issue. You are pretty much stuck having to find a workaround yourself.
  13. When you create a new notebook in a stack which has a shortcut in the left navigation, the shortcut won't update to reflect that change unless you quit and restart the application. Just throwing another bug I found in the mix so 10 years from now we can find out how many other people experience the same thing, and how Evernote doesn't care.
  14. I captured and pasted every image in this note exactly the same way. On half of them there's no possible way to see "annotate image" — it just doesn't show up in any menus. On the other half of the images, you can right-click on them and annotate them just like you're supposed to be able to. Figured I'd open a thread so people can complain for 10 years while it doesn't get fixed.
  15. Just more garbage from this ever increasingly terrible app... Today I have a note in the mac application with a bunch of screenshot images and now I am finding that "annotate image" no longer appears when right clicking on half of the images in this note file — but if I close the note, come back to it SOMETIMES I can select annotate and then I can right-click again and that option is no longer available. So I guess the ability to draw a friggin arrow on a screenshot is something I have to once again do in Photoshop? Combined with the fact the web application keeps deleting updates
  16. I am being a lot more careful how I interact with this. I literally need to real-time interact in the same note between my personal mac and the corporate POS Dell they gave me. I already have to be careful not to introduce note conflicts by hitting refresh on my mac when I switch — and I notice that MOST times if I hit refresh on my mac after making a change on the PC (browser) side the changes save AND sync properly. But not every time. I can deal with note conflicts if I create them by being careful, but when the notes simply don't save it completely destroys my workflow. The o
  17. I am currently working for a company where I need to use a corporate laptop to interact with my Evernote account and cannot install the native app. I have lost a TON of notes over the last 2 weeks because the web app is completely hit or miss when it comes to actually saving my notes. It's absolutely ridiculous. I've spent upwards of 20 minutes entering text into a note only to have all of my work vanish upon a page refresh or when opening up the native app on any of my devices. I've spent enough time trying to determine if it is just a situation unique to myself, or if it is a sy
  18. I just updated to 6.12.3 from 6.10 on os x 10.13 yesterday and Evernote is basically borked now. It runs, but it is so incredibly slow that it is borderline unusable. Loading notes when selecting one from the side used to happen instantly. Now I get the stupid loading graphic and it takes up to 5 seconds to load a note. I deleted an empty note and it remained visible in the list until I restarted the app. Several times I have started the app and had to force quit because it will not get past the loading spinner. Just seems like Evernote keeps getting worse with age, and combine
  19. There are reasons I pay to use Evernote premium. There are a lot of good features, but the BASICS of the app are garbage. If I made a forum post for every bug I found I may as well be a paid tester or QA person on your staff. I could fill up your Jira board with 1,000 tickets in a month. It's the broken haphazard user experience across the app in so many places that leave me frustrated. Just trying to make a basic packing list for a camping trip using checklists turns into a nightmare if you're trying to use a phone and the OS X app in tandem. Nested checklists and simple indenting
  20. Exactly. And who would a note taking application allow me to drag and drop PDFs and images into the application, OCR scan the images making the text within them searchable, and then allow me to prepare a slide show presentation from those notes... But indenting and editing text is way beyond the capabilities of our developers. Of course I should have known the fan boys are gonna pounce on my troll post. At least that keeps pushing it to the top where someone who gives a ***** about usability might take my comments (and the comments of thousands of people) seriously. If hundreds of peo
  21. It's actually ironic that the text editor for editing the text of these forum posts blows the lid of what you can do in the Evernote app itself.
  22. I concur with the idea that being able to indent checklists or ANY text reliably for that matter would be extremely helpful. However, I've noticed that whenever I find a bug or serious flaw in Evernote — such as the DEPLORABLE text editing capabilities — you will find tons of forum posts about it going back 5+ years. They obviously don't give a *****. Sticking to the subject at hand — I still can't fathom why a NOTE TAKING application would not have a decent indenting capability when even the MOST BASIC text editors do it well. There are FREE and OPEN SOURCE text editing software
  23. Yeah, the danger I see with this already is that while the desktops of several computers I use shall be clean, and my google drive less messy -- I'll end up with a digital closet that looks like an episode of "Hoaders" with this. I ran into one glitch with copy / pasting some notes from a plain text file into an ever-note already but then on the plus side, I can already think of one scenario that would have been useful to me recently in regards to having quick access to some PDF files I typically need to find on their source web site(s) whenever I need to reference them, so I can see this bei
  24. LOL -- I guess I am passionate about good UI experiences. I am going to give it an honest try because I think the benefits outweigh the things that "irritate" me before I slam the door shut. There is no such thing as a perfect system that makes EVERYONE happy in every way, and developer should make that his/her goal either. I'm a visual person and can agree with people in here who say being able to choose which image they'd like for the note will help them spot it in a list view (which is the whole point of having one). It would not be hard, since they already scrape the content to find all
  25. Well, after looking at explanation of how the "largest smallest" dimensions determine which image becomes the thumbnail, it makes more sense from a development standpoint as that is a simpler approach than letting the user choose their image -- but from a usability standpoint -- who really wants to see a bunch of banner ads attached to their notes in the list views -- images that have nothing to do whatsoever with the content of the note? I am still shocked that nobody has addressed this with users for the last 3 years people seem to have been asking for it.
