  1. thanks, Gazumped. While I've had a few emails sent on this topic too, these banners and fly-outs all appear to be within the desktop version of EN, the Android version of EN and the web-version itself. These intrusions don't work like a pop-up ad, so ad blockers don't seem to work. I suspect that this effort is to change the mind of people who downgraded their accounts after the price hike and they're trying to hang on to customers. Still, it's not the right way to go about it.
  2. Has anyone else downgraded to EN Basic had this experience? Evernote used to be one of my favourite applications ..... until recently that is. I wanted to support the business and development of EN and was a Premium account user for years until I downgraded from a Premium account to a basic account (I just couldn't justify the cost based on how much I actually used) this month and at first it gave me the usual, "are YOU SURE? Look at all the amazing features you'll lose." thing and I understood that... figuring this was a way to retain premium users. Well, it never stopped. Every single time i sign in on my (now two) allowed devices I see pop-ups and banners "your premium account is about to expire" or "your premium account HAS expired" and when I try to sign in on the web, it asks me to choose what account tier I want .... every single time! I get notifications or pop ups on the Android version as well as the desk top. But what really infuriated me is that today I got the millionth pop-up (edit: * to add that this is in the desktop version) that says, "You're halfway to your monthly upload limit. Nice job! Upgrade now and get all the space you'll need" Which would be another great tool to bring users back to Premium, if it were not for the fact that I have only used a tiny fraction of my monthly upload allotment. (about 12 kb out of 60 MBs) and am nowhere even close to reaching 5% much less 50% of my monthly upload limit!!! I don't appreciate constant spamming, pushing, deceptive pop-ups and hectoring to get me to upgrade again. If this keeps up every day I'm going to just switch to OneNote. I used to love EN so much but it feels like the vibe has changed... gone is EN Food, Skitch... and a friendly work environment. Like being pushed to come back to an ex, I'm afraid that customers might resent these attempts and any thoughts they might have had about upgrading might vanish.
  3. This app looks really promising and fills the gap that other apps leave on Android - I will probably try it out! As for focusing on "core application" -Evenote is missing a huge opportunity to expand template/app driven tie ins with it's core application.
  4. Would like more information on what you mean by using "tables" to replace Evernote food as a template? I'm interested in anything that helps! (so far I have only been able to use tables on Windows to create rows and columns in Evernote.. it hasn't seemed too useful but maybe I haven't figured it out yet.) I was very sad to use my Food app for the last time. It was so nice to see the locations and information in such a beautiful format. I hope Evernote decides to allow photo captioning or a similar template for general use. - I think note takers, foodies and others would make a lot of use of it!
  5. Snapdish and other apps out there are geared towards sharing, liking recipes, etc. and there are tons of other similar apps and meal loggers that are geared towards dieting and inspiration and timeline sharing instead of capturing memories. am not interested in those apps so much; If I want to post pictures of food for social media I can just use Instagram, FB - etc. (there's also tons of food photo filters out there if that's something you like) But for me -- the whole point of Evernote Food was keeping memories (for me/not social) organized. On social media/other apps... it's just all crowded in there with other content on a timeline view that doesn't let you easily recall what you want to see. The beauty of Food was that you could easily tag/geotag with restaurants and recall other food memories all in one easy to navigate location. Flava does unfortunately have a limited amount of storage
  6. I used Evernote Food on a trip last week and a few other apps to compare the usefulness/replace it as my food journalling app -- and the results were really sad and made me even more upset that Food is not supported and worse, will cease functioning. I can't believe that Evernote can't add some kind of foursquare integration/location ability to notes or a template to add photo captions. The most useful part of Evernote Food was in selecting nearby restaurants (and seeing related notes!) along with our pictures/journal of memorable meals. If they added this capability to the core Evernote, it would have usefulness and applications for people doing holiday or travel journal too. I tried My Food Circle, but found it glitchy and also too much of a "social" app. Like others, it's related to social interacting/dieting/fitness, etc. None of the things I wanted to use Food for. I also tried about 5 diary apps too. So far, the only one that seems to do a few of the things that Evernote Food did was: FLAVA (for android) -- it too has foursquare integration like Evernote Food did - though it doesn't have food/cuisine categories and only brings up the name and location of the restaurant or place to attach to the note, and is limited to 5 photos per entry.
  7. Interesting about Spoontacular! There's a huge lot of restaurant apps (yelp, etc.) and recipe/meal planner apps galore but the ability to photo-journal food is something I'm not finding on the Android market. There are a few apps (Diaro and Flava for example) that allow for tagged entries, text information and multiple pictures (many only allow one photo) alongside a map (Google Places or Maps) location of your restaurant. But they're not ideal and don't really synch with Evernote. (within Diaro you can "share" with Evernote but the note just has text and large format pictures and Flava's synch is just to url of your entry on their site) -- I haven't found anything that allows you to CAPTION the photos either like Food did... but the search continues.
  8. I agree with the others.. the list of apps suggested aren't useful because the core features of Evernote Food and why people used it was not because of the recipes (there's lots of apps to clip and save recipes) but because of the organisation, geolocation of restaurant info and photos. Evernote itself can tag location in photos but it doesn't it in a useful way and you can look for nearby restaurants, etc. Also, was "IF (IFTTT - if this then that)" included on the list because the word "recipe" was in the description? I can't think of how that app would be useful at all for the Evernote Food functions unless people wanted to save recipes to Evernote from Pocket or something.
  9. The features we're losing after September 30th: Ability to edit existing Evernote Food notes within Evernote will go away. Notes will be uneditable.Geolocation/address and the graphic map information of restaurant does not appear in EvernoteNo more picking from nearby restaurants based on location information. These features end with Evernote Food.There will be no "food memories" template for captioned photos and meal memories in Evernote; you just have to create a regular note in the standard format (no more ability to easily add photos of food) Does anyone know of alternative apps? So far, pickings are slim especially on Android. I used to use this all the time for vacation memories and special event/restaurant memories.
  10. This is really terrible! I'm really bummed out that they're getting rid of Evernote Food. Web clipping can obviously save recipes, but the whole point of Evernote food was to save (an an easy viewable template) restaurant location, food memories, pictures. --- Making a note in Evernote with some pictures of food and saving them to a notebook (or letting them get jumbled with other notes) is not ideal. The location, restaurant type, notes, tags and pictures displayed in Evernote Food is what made it so special. I always thought it would be great if Evernote created "Evernote Trips" too! I don't want to make food "notes". - Hopefully there's another photo-journal app that can fill the gap. (There are food journals but they're oriented to weight loss not pictures.) Does anyone know of any replacements? Boo!! ps. - Maybe Evernote can come up with templates for notes that people could use for these purposes?
