  1. Thanks, I did misunderstand. Syncing my notebook makes sense. I can see the logic for making people pay for the feature when it's unique. But, when I can get it on my laptop or my Mac or my PC but not my phone or tablet, I struggle. Just because I access with a tablet, they want me to pay? I can remote access my PC and bypass all this. I'm usually on a fiber connection so I'd never noticed this before or I'd not have installed it. I'd always thought that the rationale for pricing structures was offering something unique, special or unusual at various levels. You know, give me something that others don't. Do it better. Something. But, to offer the same thing other apps offer for free but ask for a charge doesn't make sense. This is especially true when there are a number of great apps out there for notes. Heck, you can always keep DOC files in Dropbox or something and put notes there. (It's crude.) For what I do, I don't want to be downloading and syncing because when I need it most, it may not be there. Anyway, Evernote is a great product. The pricing doesn't serve it well. Pricing should be to build loyalty and encourage purchases. Basic should be to get people hooked on Evernote as a content production tool. Then, expansion for import/export/sharing should be the purchases. For individuals, sell it by feature as a one-time purchase because most individuals dislike subscriptions. For businesses, offer groups of tools and do it by subscription because this is easier for businesses. (They're doing this now.) Thanks again for the clarification. I'm switching to OneNote but will keep an eye out to see if/when things change at Evernote.
  2. I don't remember offline access being a Premium feature. It isn't in other note apps. This seems like a poor differentiation between levels of the product. But, it's Evernote's right to structure their product however they wish. Regardless, this is really a poor design for devices: https://evernote.com/contact/support/kb/#/article/23260131. You'll quickly see that on a device, the user must have all notes offline or they're only cached. There needs to be notebook level control for this because a user needs some notes all the time and others aren't as important. This article goes on to explain that Evernote only caches on a device without a 'Premium' membership but will allow offline access on a PC. In this case, it syncs all the notes. What a waste. I like Evernote, and it's really handy with its web-features. I'll move all mission-critical notes to OneNote. OneNote also allows control of syncing notebooks. (NOTE: I am NOT a Microsoft fan. It gals me that they have a better solution, but currently they do.) I'll hope Evernote gets their licensing and architecture figured out and will gladly return if they do.
  3. I'm on iPad and can't see my notes offline. Notes say this doesn't work for basic members. I thought it did in previous versions. Makes no sense to lose all notes just because an Internet connection isn't available. Seriously, this is a business app? Offline does work in OneNote so I guess I move critical content there. It's free. I like Evernote and was beginning to use it more and more, but this is a stopper for me.
