I've just been poking around and stumbled across the system option to allow turning off notifications for a particular app. On Samsung Galaxy Note 4: Go to Settings -> Application Manager -> Evernote. Untick box at the top for "Show notifications". Simple enough to do, but not where I was expecting to have to make that change. Still would be better to have the option built into Evernote app. But for now I'm happy! +1 from me, too. HOWEVER, also found a similar setting on my Motorola: Settings --> Apps --> Evernote --> Un-check 'Show notifications' Thanks 'cjmnz'!
