  1. The RealPad ibuddie comes with kit kat 4.4.2, so unless you installed it yourself or bought it from a 3rd party that installed it, you put an OS that was not the original one that came with the device. So Samsung is correct, it's not supported.. even if you installed 6.0 Marshmallow does not imply the hardware can support the newer OS.. dangers of self installing
  2. Translation: I don't like change, so I am going to rant and rave about previously tested changes by other users.. in an attempt to disparage other people that like the new changes, even when the testing took months.... You can't find the camera.. so the camera symbol right below the note on the right isn't indicative of what it does?!??! You have some serious issues.. did you LOOK first?!?
  3. OK developers, I think you need to stop making this program so good. Just stop it. I spend enough time in Evernote I don't need more reasons to like it. NOW I can see icon preview images in my notes list.. what's up with that?!?!? A new feature I really like and now I suppose I have to add that to my list of things that makes Evernote great now? seriously.. stop.. I am getting things done quicker, gee thanks! more work for me. On a side note (see what I did there) how can we change these because some notes have the icon while others do not.. where do we customize these? Because now I have to learn something ELSE.. c'mon.. its only going to make me want to force the CFO to buy a site license
  4. Can we make notes read only? I accidentally hit information inside notes in trying to copy \ paste on my mobile. Then I end up saving it only to find out later that I moved something. Is there a way in Evernote to mark a notebook or note as read only so I don't accidentally change data?
  5. OK I take it back.. maybe the problem *IS* your machine.. I wouldn't be caught DEAD with a ThinkPad... Evernote says its the app, but its funny how its only a few people with the same version that have the problem.. software is not whimsical it either works or it doesn't but Evernote says its them, fine I will let them handle it..
  6. Its your OS or lack of maintenance not the 30 lb machine.. I have had Evernote for a while.. NEVER had a problem with the desktop, its the least problematic. I'd say you need to clean your registry or do a better job updating the patches, but it's not the machine.. Could also be the fact that you are using a mechanical drive, SSD are much better and more predictable performance.
  7. No, it's us. We suspect a deadlock with worker threads and the UI thread. Since it's timing related, reproduction and fixing is extremely tricky. Interesting thing about code it doesn't work sporadically it either works for everyone or not at all. so if it is the app then why isn't EVERYONE with the same version of evernote having the same problem. I am on Windows 7 at work, my evernote does not hang like this.. So the code will not just fail at random, it either works or it doesn't within the same environment. The behavior for applications is a combination of factors including installed apps and DLLs in conflict, so if the OP version does not work and yet mine does.. something ELSE is interfering....
  8. Companies like Evernote do very thorough testing of applications, if someone else has the same version and same size database we could compare and know for sure. Until then this is a Windows problem not an application. I have seen people with larger database and don't have issues, its immediately upon opening. If this were an application problem it would crash with an error "unknown problem, or database too large, or file corrupted" but it's Windows API causing the app to hang and not respond.. that is NOT an application controlled issue. That's Windows.
  9. This is a VERY strong statement, and given what I can see of my particular problem, almost certainly not true. Also, registry cleaners are in general a VERY BAD IDEA. DO NOT USE THEM. Based on what evidence? Given what you have seen of the problem, which is what exactly? Programs can solve problems faster than any human can, at least tell you where to start. If he scans the registry with a tool and it identifies 300 or more errors, then what that's a coincidence? You don't know what you don't know.. which is what shape the registry is in. How tough can it be to at LEAST try, also try to remember your audience.. I am not some first year high school student with a tablet, I have been fixing problems with computers since Windows was even in beta.. so I THINK I might have some insight into the problem. If I give advice it might mean I have some experience with these problems.
  10. This is a VERY strong statement, and given what I can see of my particular problem, almost certainly not true. Also, registry cleaners are in general a VERY BAD IDEA. DO NOT USE THEM. I have to agree, this is not a good idea. Cleaners can really damage your registry even more than it was before. Yes, some cleaners are better than others, but there are no guarantees. Also, like eric scoles pointed out, this shouldn't even be the reason Evernote keeps going to "not responding" status. Sure, a bad registry can mess things up, but I can't say this connection seems very logical. Evernote as a client is so big and complex now and maybe they focused a little too much on the many new features and forgot about the most important things, a speedy interface for example. That would be my guess, or at least in combination with a big note archive accumulated over a long period of time. That seems like a bad combo if the Evernote client isn't optimized as it used to be before all the clutter. An easy fix that at least minimized the problem were to switch to an SSD, but other people have also commented on experiencing the same thing regardless of HDD setup, but in different degrees maybe. SSD should speed things up even if the programming isn't great. I use a lot of heavy software, so for me an SSD is a logical switch anyway, but I can't say I'm very confident about great results in regard to this issue. Evernote have work to do here and the problem has just gotten worse over the last years, not better, which once again, points to all the clutter being one of the problems. I haven't looked all over the Internet after ideas though, maybe I missed something outside these threads. Yeah better to GUESS at what the problem could be rather than fix it. Not sure where you get your info from but Registry cleaners work well been using them for.. eh.. 20 years now. Maybe you have been using the wrong tool. ALL they do is FIX a problem, maybe the ones you use or the way you use them breaks Windows but if done properly they work well. But do whatever you want, suggest another way to "fix" his problem eventually you will realize the registry is where everything Windows gets handled, manually fix the problem or use an automated tool, one way or the other you will clean the registry to fix the issue. Using a faster drive is not a viable solution either, the app is broken its not slow. Have you ever done diagnostic for application issues before? You don't suggest that app speed has anything to do with app freezing, that's not good advice at all. I don't use evernote on an SSD and it works fine. I do this professionally among other things, use lots of tools there are proper ways to fix things and improper ways.. you have to get the ROOT of the problem not just apply a bandaid. The problem is the registry, period. In those 20 years I have been using registry fix tools NEVER had anyone say "generally registry tools are a bad idea".. I think not only is this not based on fact but its mostly fear or ignorance of how registry programs work. If he wants to fix the problem it starts with Windows. If we all use the same program, and I am using Evernote on Windows 7 myself then we have to go back to the last common denominator..which is the registry. I guarantee you mine is healthy his is not, and whatever is going on with freezing could be a long time problem with the registry. I only apply solutions not a bunch of ideas, the solution is Registry Cleaner, I would rather spend 1 minute having a program identify the root cause than making someone spend money on a unrelated issue. If the drive were the problem Windows wouldn't work at all not just 1 program. So don't "guess" at the problem know what you are dealing with a registry cleaner can at LEAST identify the problem BEFORE you apply the changes.. it doesn't have to make them permanent but its much faster than you can diagnose I am SURE of that.
  11. Problem is now fixed.. I uninstalled the app, rebooted the phone, reinstalled and subsequent re-sync everything works.. Not the best solution, as I still don't understand why there are counters.. ostensibly to show the discrepancy.. in the notes. Seems to me Evernote should be able to "self heal" with this info.. If the web can see notes counters, desktop can see notes counter, and the remote apps can see this info, the app should "reconcile" and if the fix is to remove content and download ALL content why can't the app do this without human intervention? Figure out which items are not visible and act accordingly... If this were a database replication this would be a poor design, because the Admins would have to delete a database, add new database and push a new copy.. that defeats the entire purpose of sync items that have changed since last update.. That is a broken replication... this is what causes people to find alternatives. It seems this app needs some additional attention in this regard.. I still like Evernote but I am less inclined to trust it.. as a "reliable" copy of my information...
  12. I find community much more helpful than techs.. I work with techs.. I know they are out of the loop on MANY things.. so I am using that as a last resort..
  13. It's not a direct sync they all sync via the web...
  14. I have a similar problem in iOS, but it seems to be low visibility.. my notes are not in sych with my desktop \ web, since you experienced the same thing.. the information I was given that the iOS app SHOULD sync, but what if it's not.. It hasn't been addressed yet, because this cannot be a coincidence.. it ether synchs ALL changes or it doesn't, things don't just disappear for no reason. My problem is even worse now because I have 381 items in my notes, yet my desktop \ web shows 379.. this is getting frustrating, because I don't know what notes I am missing apparently iOS has 2 copies I deleted.. great...
